Amazing! 4.4/5 Expedia Guest Rating

Board an airboat for a thrilling ride through the swamps and bayous of Louisiana. Come face-to-face with alligators, snakes, birds, and other native creatures while exploring their habitat.

Step onto the airboat to kick off your tour. These flat-bottom boats can generate prop-wash wind speeds of more than 150 miles per hour (241 km/h) as their large engines and even larger propellers power the boat through the bayous at speeds up to 45 miles per hour (72 km/h).

Gliding through the swamps, you are surrounded by the impressive flora and fauna of the Louisiana bayou, from small hanging mosses to prized cypress trees. As you explore the canals and hidden waterways, you are surrounded by an abundance of wildlife that you may see up close, including alligators, crayfish, birds, catfish, nutria, and snakes.

Engulfed by the remoteness and size of the bayou, you get a feeling of what it must be like to work and live in this wild environment.
