Incomparable experience

It was definitely one of the best experiences in Louisiana. Awe-inspiring views of the vastness of Missisipi and surprisingly close approach to the alligators will stay in mind for long time. We were among the nature, like a part of it. I highly recommend small boat experience for the pleasant atmosphere. Worth visiting.

Such a great experience! The pick up at the hotel was so easy. Our boat captain was so knowledgeable and really cares about the swamp and gators. He has such a passion for conservation and teaching. It was truly the highlight of our trip and you are a FOOL if you do not take advantage of such a once in a lifetime experience!

Cruising’ for gators

My girlfriend and I had blast on the small airboat tour. Yes, it is loud, but they provide proper hearing protection which is highly recommended (I measured 95db at my seat). Once you’re flying around the swamps, it’s a gorgeous sight. Then the gators start swimming to the boat for a treat, and they’re beautiful. You get the feeling you are now in the nature documentary. Our guide was old hand with life experience in the swamps, and we learned a lot about the swamps and gators. Great trip, highly recommended.

This was a fun experience! We were originally planned to ride the smaller air boat, but due to a breakdown we had to do the bigger boat. It didn’t affect our experience and they worked with us and got a refund issued to us through Viator. I do want to say that it looks like this trip is very short, but it actually lasted half a day. The boat ride was 1 hour and half and then the trip back and fourth was about 1 hour total. They had a cute little gift shop and reasonable prices. The lady in the gift shop was one of the nicest people we ran into. She was amazing!

Captain Matt was awesome. Very knowledgeable and you can tell. He really made the experience great. Overall, I had a great time and made some lasting memories. I would definitely recommend the small airboat tours through this company to anyone visiting the area. Even though I live in the south near a lot of alligators, I have never been that close in the wild. It was amazing.

We saw lots of alligators (up close and personal!) and learned a lot about alligators, the swamps and marshes! Our 12 year old grandson really enjoyed the whole trip, but especially being able to even touch a wild alligator!

This was by far, my most favorite tour while we were in New Orleans!!! Riding the airboat was sooooo cool! I would suggest getting the smaller boat for a more up close and personal experience!! Being so close to the gators was such a rush!!! Dewey, our tour guide was awesome!! He even convinced me to hold the baby gator!! I would definitely recommend this tour to others, and I plan to return again with my kids!!!

Captain Matt gave me and my family such an awesome experience. We got to learn so many things because he was so passive about the alligators as well as the Bayou. I would highly recommend the small airboat tour as it's more personal and a lot more fun.

This tour was the BEST part of our trip to NOLA! Our tour guide Matt was exceptionally entertaining and knowledgeable! From the interaction with the gators, the beautiful bayou scenery and the fan boat ride, we had a blast! I would highly encourage anyone interested in this tour to just sign up, now! The small boat tour is where it’s at and they sell out fast. You will not be disappointed!

Captain Matt was fantastic! This tour was a highlight of our trip. He did such a great job showing us around the swamp. My husband and I love boating and we both had never been on an airboat. It was so cool!! The small group tour was the perfect size and we had a great group! Highly highly recommend!
