Full description
Get back to nature in the swamps just outside New Orleans and enjoy a high-speed adventure by airboat. Blast off in small groups of no more than 6 to 9 passengers and slow down or stop to take photos of the amazing scenery. Listen to a full commentary from your captain and benefit from their expert knowledge of the local flora and fauna.

Explore a mix of swamp, marsh and lake to look for wildlife in their natural surroundings, including bald eagles, pelicans, ospreys and owls. Get close enough to alligators to look directly into their reptilian eyes! Every tour is unique and you never know what lies around the next corner.

Ride in shallow water to access areas that traditional boats can't go. The airboats are powered by engines that can reach speeds of up to 35 mph, while a huge fan blows air from the back of the boat in excess of 200 mph.
