Overview

Experience Louisiana’s wild bayou country on an exciting, family-friendly airboat tour. This tour includes an airboat ride that zips through the tree‐lined marshes at speeds up to 45 mph (72 kph). While onboard, enjoy lively commentary from your guide as you view lush scenery and local wildlife, including alligators, nutria, and native birds. Pickup and drop-off from downtown New Orleans and French Quarter hotels included.
  • Enjoy the lush marsh scenery and watch for native wildlife
  • Hear entertaining facts and stories about the region from your guide
  • Small-group tour limited to 14 people ensures a more personalized experience
  • Transport to and from your New Orleans hotel included
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.

The shuttle driver was full of fun info and incredibly funny and kind! The boat driver had a little bit of fun zipping around and knew right where to find the gators! The whole experience was a highlight for our family!

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.
