What You Can Expect

Small-Group Bayou Airboat Ride with Transport from New Orleans

Airboat in the Louisiana Bayous

Choose the morning or afternoon for your airboat adventure and enjoy pickup from your downtown New Orleans or French Quarter hotel. Once aboard the small bus, settle into a comfortable seat for the 1‐hour ride to your launch site deep in Cajun Country. Enjoy lively onboard commentary about the history and culture of the area from your guide as you leave the city behind for the wild wetlands.
Upon arrival, take your seat on the airboat and hold on as the boat takes off for the 2‐hour tour. Enjoy close proximity to the water surface and warm breezes as you zip through secluded bayous, reaching speeds of up to 45 mph (72 kph)! Spot alligators, snakes, beavers and giant river rodents called nutria lurking in the waterways. Savor the moments of calm when the boat slows and your native captain shares stories about the area’s history and abundant wildlife.

Your 4‐hour bayou adventure ends with a return to your hotel by coach, arriving in early afternoon or evening.

Loved the small group setting. The scenery was absolutely breathtaking and the fast airboat ride a thrill for sure. Several alligators spotted and fed, and we even saw a bald eagle. Our airboat guide was very knowledgeable about the swamplands and for sure knew his way around. Highly recommend!!

Really fun. Highlight of our visit to New Orleans. One tip: Make sure your sunglasses aren't breaking the seal to your ear-muffs. The airboat is REALLY loud.

Very good trip. The guide is fun and friendly, also very knowledgeable about the bayou area. We saw many alligators, big spiders and birds, as well as a raccoon brave enough to face a gator. Lots of fun!
