New Orleans Airboat Tours

If you’re interested in taking a break from the action of the French Quarter to experience the adventure of Louisiana’s swamplands, consider trying airboat tours! New Orleans offers many options for leaving the city and jumping on an airboat for a swamp tour. Soak up the unique culture and learn about the local wildlife from experienced guides, all during a one-of-a-kind, unforgettable swamp adventure. You’ll get to see Louisiana’s coastal wetlands and all of its unique wildlife, as well as its exotic and lush plant kingdom.

Airboat tours are offered by multiple companies in New Orleans and can often be arranged as either a personal or a group tour. Most swamp tours offer pickup at your hotel and transport you directly to the bayous and swamps in south Louisiana. The drive is less than 30 minutes from most downtown hotels. Most flatboat tours take only a couple of hours and can accommodate any sized party.

Sightseeing tours will give you the opportunity to get up close and personal with regional wildlife ranging from alligators, turtles, and snakes to egrets, herons, and ibises. With its tupelo-gum trees and moss-draped cypresses, the Louisiana ecosystem is beautiful to behold. Tours are generally offered at all times of day, but night tours can be an especially thrilling experience, when the swamps have an ethereal glow.

Explore the local swamplands and enter alligator country with local airboat tours! New Orleans has many options for swamp tours, but an airboat tour may truly be the most memorable choice. Browse our list of local airboat tours to get started on your next great adventure.
