Guided Louisiana Airboat Tour

by Louisiana Tour Company Duration 1h 40m+ Features animals Free cancellation available No booking or credit card fees
per adult Price is $59

Escape the hustle and bustle of downtown New Orleans during a guided airboat excursion through the bayou. Explore the Barataria Swamp—a stunning wildlife preserve with more than 23,000 acres (9,308 ha) of marsh, trails, and waterways providing a fascinating glimpse into Louisiana's wetlands.

Travel south from New Orleans and climb aboard a comfortable airboat with stadium speeding. This modern marvel is fueled by a powerful Chevrolet engine and can reach speeds of up to 35 miles per hour (56 km/h). Take off into the swamp, reveling in the way the airboat swiftly accesses areas inaccessible by foot or car.

As you cruise the swamp's meandering tributaries, allow your guide to bestow you with knowledge about the Mississippi Delta. Learn about the hurricane of 1915 that caused $13 million dollars' worth of damage to the region, leaving an indelible mark on small towns along the Gulf Coast including Frenier, Louisiana.

Keep your eyes peeled for uncommon swamp species, including the infamous American alligator. Glimpse bald eagles, pelicans, ospreys, and owls, and learn to distinguish between alligators and crocodiles before your illuminating tour is through.

Capn’ Brad was a badass. Very knowledgeable of the area and deep roots in the gator world. Really liked the conservation aspect of the tour and proving how nice and cuddly the gators are. I’m pretty sure I could take Capn’ Brad in an MMA fight though. I’d go for a donkey punch right for his bum vertebrae, then ground and pound him with my swamp ass. Highly recommend tour! They’re the best!

This was AMAZING! Our tour guide was great and we had the best time! My boyfriends sunglasses flew off his head but we weren’t even mad about it because it was such a cool experience!
