12 feet of prehistoric muscle with yellow eyes and jaws of steel—alligators lurk in our waters. Deep in the bayous and swamps south of New Orleans, in the back channels once frequented by buccaneers and rum-runners, privateers and Creole charlatans, adventure awaits.
Barataria Swamp is one of America's last pristine, natural environments, preserved in perfection. The only thing that has changed since the days of Jean Lafitte is the boat. Instead of a pirogue floating silently through the bayous in the dead of night, Airboat Adventures takes you on a roaring ride through the Barataria.
For most, the swamps of Louisiana are an exotic picture of a former life, but for Airboat Adventures, it's a home and a livelihood. Our swashbuckling swamp guides will reveal the mysteries of swamp life to you—owls hidden in trees, nutria, snapping turtles, alligators and even the remnants of bygone logging operations.
Airboat Adventures is an adventure, not just another tour. It's a once-in-a-lifetime thrill-ride into the depths of nature. It's wild and exotic—just like our guides and our home.
Airboat Package includes:
Guests are picked up at the hotel and driven to the dock in Lafitte, just 35 minutes south of New Orleans. Join us on these two-hour adventures seven days a week. The airboat leaves the dock at 9:45 a.m., noon, 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. Since the 4 p.m. tours run seasonally, guests should check with Airboat Adventures to confirm a 4 p.m. ride by calling +1 (888) 467-9267. All guests should be ready and waiting in front of the hotel or in the lobby one hour prior to the scheduled dock departure time. Airboat tours are not private; you may be on an airboat with up to 12 people. Please note that airboat tours can be quite loud.Terms and Conditions
