From start to finish this was an exceptional experience and our guide Brad was above and beyond. His knowledge about the wildlife and environment is unmatched. I’m already planning my trip back to New Orleans and this tour will 100% be a part of it!

Was told our trip was for Friday but they don't travel Friday had to go back the following day. No bueno especially when traveling with children.

Thank you for the positive feedback. I'm not exactly understanding what you mean by us not traveling that day. We operate rain or shine, except in extreme weather such as thundering and freezing temperatures. Please feel free to give us a call for further information, so we can further address the issue.

Airboat ride

Seeing a couple gators and turtles. This is the wrong time of the year if you want to see gators and wild life .
icon Response from Host , Jan 2022
I'm sorry about your experience. Alligators are known to hibernate during the winter months, so I'm not sure if you were aware of that. Also, we do not have control over the wildlife that are in the swamp and so each tour is unique in its own.

Good trip. Drive yourself there.

The airboat tour was great, but be sure to drive yourself. If you book with “downtown New Orleans pickup” they will pick you and bring you to the spot ONE HOUR before you get on the boat. There were a bunch of us just kind of waiting in the parking lot for that time. We asked why we were there so early. They didnt really have an answer. They kind of suggested for lunch but there was a meager selection of food.. It’s not clear why they take that time from you but burning one of your hours with no explanation is disrespectful. With that said, if you have a car. Book without pickup and it will be great! It will also be less expensive.

I'm sorry that you feel that way. Your pickup was scheduled between 10:20am and 10:50am. The drive from the city to our dock is between 30-40 minutes. You checked in at our dock at about 11:20am for the 12:10pm tour. Yes, you were there 50 minutes before the tour began and the reason for that time frame is so that our guests and our employees (drivers and captains) can get a decent lunch time between tours. The ticket booth agent did in fact explain to you that the time frame was for lunch, but you disregarded what she had to say and proceeded to insult the food selection that we had to offer in our snack shop.

Good airboat ride in the swamp. Maybe better on a sunny day.
Bruno_M
, Jan 2022
Never been on an air boat before: this was a good experience. The tour in the swamp was OK, but not much wildlife to be seen: a few birds, two small gators... The day was grey and cold so this is probably why. The guide was nice and gave interesting info on the last hurricane and its effects on homes and on the land, but the airboat is of course very noisy, hence this limits the possibility for talking.

Great time! Guide was knowledgeable and took his time in parts of the bayou. The ride was fun and kids really enjoyed. Saw plenty of gators (which was rare for late December) but we got lucky and was a warm day.
