  • We took the canopy pontoon boat tour. It was better than the air boat, nicer quieter ride and you were able to see more, including gators. EJ was our Captain and he was a great guide !

  • There is a bathroom, snacks, and a live albino gator where you check-in. We took the large airboat. There is no shade on the boat, hats will fly off, there is a big step down into the boat, and...

  • The swamp tour at Airboat Adventures was beyond amazing! The Airboat experience was one of a kind and the coolest boat ride you could take! Our guide T Earl was the best! He was friendly and humorous! He gave us so much information pertaining to the swamp from the gators and geographic details to the damage from previous hurricanes. With the utmost hospitality, T Earl gave us a wonderful tour and you could really see his passion for the swamp, bayous and his community! This tour is so unique and is a must when visiting New Orleans!!! Thank you for an amazing experience Airboat Adventures!
  • Overall, the tour was super good. I wish it would've been longer. We really only went down one canal and mostly stayed on the lake. Our boat Captain, Captain Dilan (spelling), was super cool! He knew a lot about the area and plants and animals that lived there. We saw about 4 or 5 alligators. They were mid sized, nothing huge, but not small either. We saw birds, turtles, and a few snakes. Captain Dilan stole the show though. He actually got gators to come over to the boat and he pulled them outta the water so we could take pictures. He had a ton of good stories to along with his show. I would definitely do this again and request Captain Dilan as our guide! We had a great time!
