Airboat Adventures

Although quite pricey (~$80 a person then tips that the guides and bus drivers expect), the Airboat Adventures swamp tour was pretty cool-- after all, when else does one get to travel the back waters in the vicinity of NOLA on a speed boat of sorts with the breeze going through your hair? The wildlife watching was charming: we saw a variety of birds, a turtle, and even a few alligators. Spoiler alert! The highlight was petting a baby 'gator the size of a liftable log or a bit larger than an average house cat. The poor girl on the front row nearly had a heart attack when the critter was presented upon her. Surprise! Though I am not sure how animal rights folks would feel about so many randoms holding and pett...

One word.  GREAT!  We were on the water "exploring" for almost 2 hours, in which time our guide took us to several locations to watch aligators and other swamp wildlife.  We also got an opportunity to hold a b...

Great experience! Matt was our Capt. and he is spectacular.  I thought it would be a touristy thing to do but our family saw a lot of alligators up close (VERY) and roa...

Definitely call them up yourself, versus going through any middlemen. We got a hotel pick up and drop off, and a two hour swamp ride.  Breezing through the waters with just 10 other people was fun, and it really helped beat the heat and humidity outside.  Our tour guide wasn't the greatest in enthusiasm or creativity, however. Tourists:  So, what got you interested in doing this? Guide:  Um...I just do it. Tourists:  How'd you find this place to work at? Guide:  Uh...they found me. Guide:  (pulls out a baby alligator from the cooler) Tourists: Ooh, what's his name?? Guide:  I don't know, I just pull one out from the tank pre-tour.   ETC.  We didn't see much, as he was pretty lazy with going anywhere or inter...

I'm only giving it 2 stars because I have experienced better.   Don't get me wrong, I LOVE airboats and flying through the swamp, but this experience wasn't that great.  I saw way more gators in their little pen than through the "tour" of the swamp. Our guide was a younger kid and there were times where we just rolled around pretty slow (I think he did that to kill time).  He wasn't very personable or enthusiastic about anything. We parked under a tree full of spanish moss to hold the baby gator that he had hidden in a cooler.  Kind of a meh experience which seemed like another way for them to kill time.   They take you to spots where they seem to have conditioned the gators to come out and eat marshmallows....

I highly recommend it!  We got the recommendation from our hotel concierge and it was the right call.  We were picked up at our hotel and made a few stops to pick up other passengers.  The driver was named Wayne and loved to talk about New Orleans.  I enjoyed it because it was like getting a free city tour.  The ride was about 30 minutes until we got to the dock.  In the office they had several live alligators in the tanks and a couple of albinos.  Our airboat captain was Kevin and I thought he did a great job.  He brought us to spots that had alligators and we were not disappointed.  I also learned that alligators and most of the swamp creatures love marshmallows.  The highlight was meeting a 50-year old al...

We had a wonderful I experience with Airboat Adventures. I recently planned a bachelor party for my brother and 19 of his closest friends. While we were excited to see the bars and debauchery of the city, French Quarter and Bourbon Street, we also wanted to get away from the city for a bit and see what else Louisiana had to offer. Our experience with AA was very nice start to finish. We were picked up on time at our hotel in a very nice 32 passenger bus. The bus driver was actually quite informative on the drive out to the swamp (about an hour) and pointed out sites along the way (Battle of New Orleans, Katrina sites, etc). Upon arrival, checkin was quite easy, they allowed each person in our group to pay in...

Once your in the swamp area, its a great time.  They even let you hold a baby alligator.   Tour guide was fun and informative.   However the transportation to and from was awful, the bus they picked us up in did not have a working air conditioner on the way to...

A must do while in Nawlins!  Our concierge recommended this tour and I'm glad he did...it was worth every penny!  We went on the small airboat because it goes faster and you can go deeper into the swamp.  They also pick you up and drop you off at your hotel and the bus driver gave you a lot of great info about NOLA on the way to the tour. I...

When its a nice sunny day, the gators will appear.  Went mid afternoon during Mardi Gras, so only saw a baby gator.  The Captain gave us info on the swamp and its s...
