Tour description provided by Viator

An airboat tour through Louisiana’s famous swamps is the perfect way to experience the untamed side of New Orleans. Aboard a small airboat, explore marshes and travel deep into secluded bayous as you cruise up to 45 mph (72 kph)! Enjoy the lush scenery, watch for wildlife, and hear entertaining stories and facts from your knowledgeable guide on your 2-hour airboat ride. You may even get a chance to hold a baby alligator! Hotel pickup and drop-off is included.

After pickup from your downtown New Orleans or French Quarter hotel, you’ll drive to a remote swamp in Cajun Country, located less than an hour away, for an exciting high-speed airboat tour. On the way, your friendly driver will provide entertaining stories and interesting facts about the region.

Board a small airboat and relax as your professional driver takes you comfortably through marshes and deep into secluded bayous. On your 2-hour airboat ride, hold on tight as the airboat reaches speeds of up to 45 mph (72 kph)!

See abundant cypress trees, Louisiana’s state tree, and watch for native wildlife. If you're lucky, depending on the season, you may get to hold a baby alligator, feed a giant catfish or meet a nutria, similar to a beaver, face to face!

After your airboat tour, you’ll return to your hotel.
