Departure Point

Traveler pickup is offered
Please specify hotel at time of purchase. We pick up in New Orleans at any hotel, Bed & Breakfast or select Airbnbs, uptown (close to St. Charles Ave.), in (or close to) the French Quarter, and on the Westbank.

We do not pick up by the airport, in New Orleans East, in Slidell, or on the North Shore.

Supplier will contact you the day before your tour to give you an exact pick up time.

Choose the morning or afternoon for your small-group airboat adventure and enjoy pickup from your downtown New Orleans or French Quarter hotel. Once aboard the air-conditioned van, settle into a comfortable seat for the 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 your 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 bayou adventure ends with a return to your hotel by van, arriving in early afternoon or evening.

Stop At:  
Bayou Segnette State Park
Board a small airboat and relax as your professional airboat captain takes you comfortably through marshes and deep into secluded bayous.

This was such a great trip. Our guide was very informative and made sure we saw wildlife. My favorite part were the redneck pandas. If you don't know what they, you have to check them out. This is a must for anyone visiting this area. There is so much more to Louisiana than Bourbon Street.

Oh yes, the wildlife in our swamps is way more interesting than the one on Bourbon St. !!! And redneck pandas are everywhere (LOL !!!) Anyway, we appreciate your great review, Kortoli, and are so happy you thought our fast and fun airboat tour "is a must" ! Please come back soon!

This tour was so much fun. The tour guide was so hilarious and fun. Had a blast going on the bayou and seeing crocodiles. Even got to hold a miniature one! Was nervous because at pickup there were definitely many people onboard the bus, but they split you into smaller groups upon arrival. Tour was a great choice and the breeze felt amazing as it was 85 degrees in NOLA.
