The entire trip was amazing! Our hotel pick up was right on time and after arriving at the swamp, Captain Brad took us on a thrilling airboat ride. He shared stories of the Bayou and explained the devastation created from Hurricane Ida. As for seeing alligators- we saw a LOT! It was amazing to see how close one came to our boat and Brad was even able to touch his snout!! We would definitely recommend this trip to anyone!

The captain was Very knowledgeable about the animals in the swap. He gave us a good time whipping the boat but also stopped to educate and explain what had been going on in the swamp

One of the best tour we took while in New Orleans. Our tour guide was funny, informative and great all around. We went in May 2021, the weather was perfect considering everyone telling us not to go in May. I would highly recommend this tour, we drove because we did not get a confirmation on pick up from our hotel location but it was not far. We did receive a call for pick up when we were half way there though. Overall, the tour was great and it seemed to go by fast since we were having fun.

Old man tour guide (I’m terrible with names). Very educational and fun experience on the water, even with it being 30 days after a hurricane

This tour was wonderful! It brought us close to the nature and gave unforgettable experience! I would definitely recommend it to anybody interested in the nature and seeing the gators.

This posting is late as we were in Nola for memorial weekend and had a great time, as per the swamp boat tour the best part was our captain he was awesome!! Informative, kind, knowledgeable and in the end he didn’t solicit for tips in anyway which is so classy.. of course we all tipped him. By the way the thread on my iPhone via Cool Destinations popped up as we just did another excursion in Hawaii that’s how I saw I needed to make sure I filed out our swamp boat Nola trip done months ago…yep marinate on that

An awesome experience. The waters and swamps are so beautiful and peaceful. The swamp boat glides smoothly over the water and can take you just about anywhere.

This was super fun. Our guide was really knowledgeable. They use marshmallows of all things to attract the alligators, so you get pretty close - and can get some great photos. And the setting is really pretty. My 13-year-old niece said it was her favorite activity in New Orleans. Pick up and drop off was also very organized.

The entire experience of the Large Airboat Swamp Tour was fantastic. From the shuttle pick-up to the boat ride this tour did not disappoint! Our Captain Mike was everything and more! He truly went out of his way to ensure that my large group had a wonderful time. This was part of my husband’s birthday celebration and it definitely added to the wonderful memories created. I strongly encourage you to take this tour it’s worth every dollar.
