per adult Price is $79

Your New Orleans Airboat Swamp Adventure awaits – with numerous airboats onsite we can accommodate any size party you may have. Our airboats hold only 6-8 people for an exclusive, semi-private experience. Glide over the water through our privately-owned bald cypress swampland. Your airboat swamp tour is an 1 hour and 45 minutes with numerous opportunities to see alligators as big as 13 feet and other exotic wildlife! You may also see beautiful bald eagles, red-tail hawks, turtles, blue herons, and many more swamp creatures.

Located in the small, Cajun fishing village of Lafitte; Airboat Adventures is only 30 minutes south of New Orleans. However, it is a world away from Bourbon Street and the French Quarter. The surrounding swamps that you will tour are draped in moss and oak trees and run deep with pirate history. The pirate turned American hero at the Battle of New Orleans, Jean Lafitte, based his lucrative operations in the small fishing village. Many people still believe his gold is buried somewhere in the swamps there.

Also, learn about the struggle of south Louisiana to protect its wetlands and eco-system from erosion, oil spills, and hurricanes.

We had a semi private tour (6 people) and couldn’t have had a better time. Our boat driver/guide was Steve. Having grown up in the area he was a wealth of knowledge and offered an authentic ‘cajun’ influenced experience. Within minutes of arriving at his first ‘honey hole’ we were watching gators in action. Steve shared bits of humor at every turn as he fed the gators ‘swamp crack’ and bits of hot dogs. Not only did we see gators, but Steve shared bits of history and exposed us to other aspects of the bayou. Highly recommend!!

Best adventure of our entire trip to New Orleans. Jay was our guide on the Airboat Adventure. I selected a semi-private experience because I like being up front to hear everything and see everything. That doesn't always happen in a larger group. The boat accommodated 6-8 guests. Our group had 6. It was very easy to see everything and hear everything. Our guide spoke to each one of us by name and it was wonderful. We saw gators that swam to the boat when our guide called them....no kidding. I would have thought it ridiculous too, but I saw it with my own eyes. We saw a small family of racoons that the guide called out of the swamp. no kidding and turtles that do wheat turtles do, nothing. I highly recommend Airboat Adventures and Jay for a spectacular tour of the swaps and bayous. EXCELLENT!
