Airboat Swamp Tours

Experience the other Swamp Tour in New Orleans.

airboatpgWe are only 35 minutes from New Orleans yet a world apart. Hold onto your hat! Airboat tours are a high speed adventure that is part tour and part ride. You will experience the best of both: a swamp tour and an airboat ride. You will travel at high speeds in the airboat then slow down and stop for pictures. Along the way, you will get a personal tour by your local Captain. Our airboats have stadium seating, so that the person in front of you does not obstruct your view. So every airboat seat is great for experiencing the tour and viewing the wildlife. Yes, gators will get close, real close. So close that you will be able to look into those reptilian eyes.

Alligators do hibernate in the colder months, but our experienced captains know where to look for them. On average, during the winter, you have better than a 50/50 chance of seeing a gator. In the warmer months, you will see a gator. Every Airboat Tour is unique and we never know what will be around the next corner. The area toured is a combination of Swamp, Marsh and Lake. So you may see anything from a Bald Eagle to a Pelican to Osprey to an Owl. It is that diverse.

Airboat Swamp Tour in New Orleans

The airboats are driven by a 454 Chevy Engine that will produce speeds of up to 35 miles an hour. They are propelled by a huge fan that will blow air from the back of the boat in excess of 200 miles an hour. These tours are truly a blast! They ride in inches of water and go where traditional boats cannot go! The boats were designed to take you to inaccessible areas of the swamp, places that you cannot reach by foot or car. It is a unique experience.

6 Passenger Airboats
The 6 passenger airboat is 16′ in length, has two bench seats that will sit six passengers. This airboat is a little faster and can go in some places that the larger airboat cannot reach. It is a more personal experience. The gator’s get very close, since you are only feet away from the water.
