What To Bring On A Swamp Tour

Airbaot, What To Bring On A Swamp Tour | New Orleans Swamp ToursYou are excited to go on your first swamp tour and you have decided to book one of our Airboat tours. This will be the tour of a lifetime, but before you step aboard there are a few things you should keep in mind and some items you should bring with you to make the trip as comfortable and as exciting as possible. Here a few tips for you!

What You May Need On An Airboat Ride

Our  fan boat is half ride and half tour. It is an open ride experience. If it is raining, you will get wet. Airboats operate during periods of spotty rain, so you will need a rain poncho. If it is cold, you will get cold. Bring a heavy coat and long pants on the colder days. If it is hot and sunny, we recommend a hat and sunscreen. You can wear shorts, flip flops, t-shirt, very casual clothes for the airboat tour. Do not bring expensive jewelry on the airboat! If your jewelry falls off, it could be lost forever. We do sell sunscreen and rain ponchos at the snack/souvenir shop at our dock. Because of the nature of the boat, there is a 48” minimum requirement for this tour. People with neck or back problems and pregnant women are not allowed to ride the airboat. Maybe also consider bringing some bug spray.

Don’t forget to bring your camera because our experienced captains will make sure you get to see plenty alligators and other swamp wild life.The area toured is a combination of Swamp, Marsh and Lake. The Swamp is such a diverse ecosystem that you may see anything such as a Bald Eagle, a Pelican, an Osprey, or even an Owl.
