On this tour 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. These airboats have stadium seating, so that the person in front of you does not obstruct your view. 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 the 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 always see a gator. Every New Orleans Airboat Tour is unique and you 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 our even an Owl, its that diverse. 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 places 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.

Bobby was our guide. He was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining. Everyone should do this tour!! This was my first time to NOLA and I am so happy we did this tour. From the airboat, to the gators, to the education of the swamp…it’s a must!


A wonderful and educational experience. Great fun. Our guide was super. He was very knowledgeable and professional. Highly recommend.

Awesome tour!!! Would definitely do this tour again. The staff was very knowledgeable and friendly. Got to see lots of gators!!!


We really enjoyed it. Had a great time even though it was hot. Guide was very knowledgeable and got some great pictures. Loved sitting in the front seats.


Captain Jason was very informative. We saw lots of alligators, a cypress swamp, a bayou, and he provided lots of history. Enjoyed the tour very much.


Great swamp tour! We took the small airboat tour, and it was everything we hoped for and more. Our guide was fantastic and took us straight to where the gators were. We saw 12-foot down to 3-foot gators. Beautiful scenery and our guide provided lots of knowledge about the local ecosystem. Amazing how he could interact with the gators especially with the biggest ones. He literally petted them, kissed one on the snout and hand fed it large marshmallows, lol! The airboat itself provided plenty of viewing and was fun to ride in. Highly recommend this tour to everyone.


The guide was so knowledgeable about the swamp and respectful to the natural environment. We loved seeing all the gators and learning about them. We loved the intimacy of the small boat. We were able to see everything up close.


So many gators out in the water! At one time a dozen were circling the air boat! Our guide was great and knowledgeable Only downfall was we had booked the small airboat tour and got switched to the large airboat tour at the last minute as there was a problem with the small boat. I was given a refund for the difference. Would recommend!


Amazingly beautiful experience! Ian was the best Captain! He seriously knew everything. Can't recommend this tour enough!


It was awesome. We got to see a 13 foot gator along side our boat. Held a baby gator. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable. I recommend this tour.
