What you can expect

Your New Orleans Airboat Swamp Adventure awaits – with numerous airboats onsite we can accommodate any size party you may have. Our airboats hold only 6-8 people for an exclusive, semi-private experience. Glide over the water through our privately-owned bald cypress swampland. Your airboat swamp tour is an 1 hour and 45 minutes with numerous opportunities to see alligators as big as 13 feet and other exotic wildlife! You may also see beautiful bald eagles, red-tail hawks, turtles, blue herons, and many more swamp creatures.

Located in the small, Cajun fishing village of Lafitte; Airboat Adventures is only 30 minutes south of New Orleans. However, it is a world away from Bourbon Street and the French Quarter. The surrounding swamps that you will tour are draped in moss and oak trees and run deep with pirate history. The pirate turned American hero at the Battle of New Orleans, Jean Lafitte, based his lucrative operations in the small fishing village. Many people still believe his gold is buried somewhere in the swamps there.

Also, learn about the struggle of south Louisiana to protect its wetlands and eco-system from erosion, oil spills, and hurricanes.
