What You Can Expect

Small-Group Bayou Airboat Ride with Transport from New Orleans

Airboat in the Louisiana Bayous

After pickup from your downtown New Orleans or French Quarter hotel, you’ll drive to a remote swamp in Cajun Country, located less than an hour away, for an exciting high-speed airboat tour. On the way, your friendly driver will provide entertaining stories and interesting facts about the region.

Board a small airboat and relax as your professional driver takes you comfortably through marshes and deep into secluded bayous. On your 2-hour airboat ride, hold on tight as the airboat reaches speeds of up to 45 mph (72 kph)!

See abundant cypress trees, Louisiana’s state tree, and watch for native wildlife. If you're lucky, depending on the season, you may get to hold a baby alligator, feed a giant catfish or meet a nutria, similar to a beaver, face to face!

After your airboat tour, you’ll return to your hotel.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2015

The entire experience was loads of fun. We were picked up at our hotel on time and had a great guide to the water Isabelle Tours did this part through Viator. The boat ride itself was great. The bayou is simply gorgeous. Allen, our guide, was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining at the same time. The motor died at one point, so we had to change boats. There was no problem at all - we sat in a lovely spot while the new boat came. Allen a native of the area told us wonderful stories about the area's environment and related industries, such as fishing and alligator hunting. Along came Kevin with the pick up, and we were on our way. A truly memorable time. The van took us back to our hotel, but dropped another family off at a restaurant they wanted to go to without any complaints or fuss at all. On the contrary. Niji from the tour company also gave us great and useful information. I cannot praise this half-day outing too much. Well worth every dime.
