Mississippi River, Louisiana, United States Travel along the river to reach your destination in the swamps.
Barataria Preserve, Marrero, Louisiana, United States On this tour you will experience the best of both: a swamp tour and an airboat ride.You will travel at high speeds in the airboat then slow down and stop for pictures. Along the way, you will get a personal tour by your local Captain. These airboats have stadium seating, so that the person in front of you does not obstruct your view. Every airboat seat is great for experiencing the tour and viewing the wildlife. Yes, gators will get close, real close. So close that you will be able to look into those reptilian eyes.
Alligators do hibernate in the colder months, but the experienced captains know where to look for them. On average, during the winter, you have better than a 50/50 chance of seeing a gator. In the warmer months, you will always see a gator. Every New Orleans Airboat Tour is unique and you never know what will be around the next corner. The area toured is a combination of Swamp, Marsh and Lake. So you may see anything from a Bald Eagle to a Pelican to Osprey our even an Owl, its that diverse. The airboats are driven by a 454 Chevy Engine that will produce speeds of up to 35 miles an hour. They are propelled by a huge fan that will blow air from the back of the boat in excess of 200 miles an hour. These tours are truly a blast! They ride in inches of water and go places where traditional boats cannot go. The boats were designed to take you to inaccessible areas of the swamp, places that you cannot reach by foot or car. It is a unique experience. 120 minutes

Captain Jason was a delightful surprise. Yes, he handled the airboat with the competence you'd expect from a native "swamp boy"; in fact, I wasn't surprised to hear him say he was disappointed that the speed limiter had recently been lowered on his boat. 40 mph speed provided ample thrills for me, and I daresay, for the other 8 passengers. The surprise was his total command and imparting of knowledge about the environment and creatures we saw. And I didn't get the impression that he was reciting by rote, his delivery seemed fresh, and "off-the-cuff". Did I mention he was funny? I selected the small-group tour believing that I'd be closer to the elements and less likely to miss anything the tour guide said. If you want alligator sightings (and more!) with the thrill that comes with speed on the water, this is the tour for you. And don't be deterred if you are a senior, because that's what I am! Tip: I was glad I had a rain jacket (it's cooler than you think) and wish I had brought something for wiping my sunglasses. If I have any criticism, it's for the driver of the bus who picked me up from my hotel. I stepped on the bus the moment he pulled to the curb (having been summoned from my waiting spot just inside the hotel door by the door man) and the driver's first words to me were: "Why were you waiting inside? I was about to leave you behind!" Rude, and uncalled-for. The bus ride to the dock is a necessary inconvenience, so you should expect some down time both during the trip to and from the dock, as well as after arriving at the dock while we waited for all passengers to arrive. But DEFINITELY worth it!
