What a fun trip. T. Earl was our guide and he was awesome. Friendly and knowledgeable. If you are looking for an inexpensive trip for an afternoon in New Orleans give this a try.

This was a terrific experience. They pick you up at your hotel. 30 minutes to the swamp. Gators everywhere, HILARIOUS tour guides, and the craziest accents I’ve ever heard.

Ronnie our airboat captain was amazing. He brought the tour to life with his experience and flair. He handled what could have been an unpleasant situation with a overbearing guest in such a way that it flipped the narrative and made the already fantastic experience more amusing. He wove in personal experience with facts to bring about a truly knowledgeable and enjoyable trip. I highly recommend this tour and ask for Ronnie.

My boyfriend and I decided to take the airboat adventure ride for our first trip to The Big Easy to experience the bayou! And boy was it an adventure! We went on a day that was raining on and off so we expected to get wet. Well it decided to downpour on us the entire time!! Haha it definitely added to the experience and we had a few times with it lighting up a bit. Our tour guide was great! Very informative and knew the area well and was able to find a spot where we saw four to five gators! There was not much other wildlife but the canals themselves were wonderful enough. Our guide even took us through the canal that inspired Disney’s Princess and the Frog which I geeked out a bit about! Overall, it was a great experience and was my boyfriends favorite part of our trip. Make sure to bring your complete rain gear just in case!!

Omg Gators!!!! Took a friend on his 1st visit to the LA swamps. Now I've done 3 other tours at other swamps, overnights at coon camp on Honey Island swamp...It was Sun Jan 31, 21 Weren't expecting to see any gators in late january. We got lucky, only 76 degree day all month! Captain Steve was great, fun, informative, he found us a boat load of lazy, sunbathing GATORS( and turtles)! Amazing 😉👍👍 The airboat (we paid for the small boat) was fun as hell! WooHoo!!!!!!! Ground shuttle bus to n from NOLA was great! The ladies in the store, @ checkin were wonderful and we had a great time sharing stories & laughing n visiting. I will be bringing all my guests, who accompany me on my NOLA trips, back here for their 1st swamp experiences 😘❤ 🐊🐊🐊 Thanks for the great day! Highlight of the trip.
