This family-friendly airboat tour of the wetlands near New Orleans includes round-trip transportation from the city to save you the hassle of planning your own rides to and from the French Quarter. Once you’re out on the water, catch sight of wildlife such as alligators and nutria with help from your guide, who knows the ins and outs of this natural Louisiana landscape.
What to Expect

Meet for this airboat ride in New Orleans’ French Quarter. Once you board your air-conditioned bus, ride for 30 minutes to the fishing village of Jean Lafitte. This town, deep in the Louisiana wetlands, is a great place to begin to understand Cajun culture.

Before you head out on your airboat, your guide takes you to an albino alligator exhibit. You also have an opportunity to pick up some food or something to drink (own expense).

Board your airboat and take to the water through a bayou. Your guide stops along the way to show you native wildlife such as alligators and nutria. Hear stories about the area’s history and culture, as well as some swamp folklore.

Your tour ends with a car ride back to the French Quarter in New Orleans.

Please note before booking that children must be five years old or above to take this tour.

Nice experience but booking it at ticket office saves 25 dollars a person

We liked the trip. It was hot and there were loads of gators and turtles. Booking via tripadvisor app was a huge mistake as it made the trip 25 dollars pp more expensive which is ludicrous and out of proportion.
