About this Experience
Airboat Adventures offers personal Swamp Tours through the South Louisiana Bayous and Swamps. We are located less than 30 minutes from the French Quarter and open 7 days a week. We will even pick you up from any of the downtown New Orleans hotels! Just minutes from the Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve, Airboat Adventures offers visitors a break from bawdy Bourbon Street and an exciting alternative to commercial Swamp Tours!
Come join our outgoing captains on a high speed Airboat Ride! You’ll be touring a large tract (20,000 acres) of tidewater cypress swamp. It’s a dynamic ecosystem supporting many types of aquatic and moist-soil vegetation, as well as a diverse wildlife population. And you’ll witness some of the most beautiful scenery around as we take you through the swamp and into the bayous lined with moss-draped cypress and tupelo-gum trees. During your 1 hour 45 minute – 2 hour tour you’ll have opportunities to see alligators, snakes, turtles, egrets, herons and ibis, and we sometimes see hawks, owls and bald eagles.
