Get ready for an exciting adventure!

Looking for a fast-paced, wind-in-your-face thrill ride? We can take care of that! Take an exciting ride up high, airboat-style, through the remote swamps and bayous of Louisiana, accessible only by airboat. The captain, a native of the area, offers a colorful history of the Cajun way of life in between quick water and land skimming bursts between sights. You'll come face to face with alligators, snakes and other native creatures while touring their neighborhood.

We have offered New Orleans airboat tours for over 10 years, and feature a fleet of seven airboats. Each vessel is ready to take you to the far reaches of the bayous propelled by Chevy 454 cubic-inch 450-horsepower engines. We can accommodate up to 98 passengers total per tour.
