Kehren Sie dem geschäftigen Treiben von New Orleans mit einer aufregenden Airboat-Fahrt eine Weile den Rücken zu – eine Aktivität, die für die ganze Familie geeignet ist. Halten Sie nach Alligatoren, Schlangen, Schildkröten und Reihern Ausschau, während Sie über einen Zypressensumpf in der Nähe des Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve brausen. Mit moosigen Zypressen und Tupelobäumen gesäumte Buchten bieten Lebensraum für unzählige Tiere und großartige Motive für Ihre Kamera.
Dieser Ausflug in kleiner Gruppe ist auf acht Personen (Fahrt mit kleinem Airboat) oder 25 Personen (Fahrt mit großem Airboat) begrenzt, damit jeder Passagier eine hervorragende Aussicht hat.
Bitte beachten Sie: Wenn Sie die eigenständige Anreise wählen, werden Sie nicht vom Hotel abgeholt.
This tour is a lot of fun. The guide we had grew up only a few miles from the swamp and was very knowledgeable. He even had a baby alligator with him that we could hold and take pictures. We went in early Dec and saw 6 alligators. Suggestion: Instead of paying for the tour to pick you up, just go rent a car for the day to save money.
The weather would not let us be great!! We had an excellent guide, Jay, who made sure we had a good time and was very informative. We were on the large boat, but I think you will be able to see more on the smaller boat. I recommend taking the ride in the warmer months so you can see more animals. According to Jay, most animals are trying to find a warm place and don't come out.
Our swamp was an amazing experience! The guide was very knowledgable and gave lots of great info. We got to handle a baby alligator as well as saw lots of wildlife and plant life. Well worth every penny.
Took a large boat. The guides really know where to spot gators, even in the cooler months when most are dormant. We still saw 2 gators in cool, November weather. The guides are not only knowledgeable, but very entertaining, especially Captain Cory!
We booked a small boat and couldn’t have been more excited to do so. Seeing everyone crammed into the large boat made us feel quite fortunate to have such a personal experience. Being a small boat was so much more agile and exciting and up close and personal. We probably saw at least 20 gators and several turtles. We were told that October was about as late as you want to go on this experience since the animals are starting to prep for winter. Overall this is an amazing experience and one that you should not pass up if you have the opportunity and time to do so.
We had a group of eleven and we all enjoyed the tour. Our guide was entertaining and knowledgable about the area. The swamps were beautiful and we got to see several alligators. Eat before you go as there is really no place to go within walking distance and byob! If you get a Lyft or Uber there the only way back is by taxi, so I would reserve that ahead of time so you're not left waiting for 45min for a ride back like we were.
We arrived to an albino alligator when checking in, which my girls loved. The captain was amazing and gave not only a tour but education on the geography, history and ecology of the bayou area. It was a short 30-40 minute ride from New Orleans and SO worth the trip!!!
