What a fantastic time! We saw an albino alligator, 2 babies, and tons of alligators in the swamp. Captain Richie was great! Very informative and had a great time. We went on a day with sunshine and just about 80 degrees. Great timing to see all the alligators. Teens loved it! Might be a long time for little ones, but... More

I've been on swamp tours before so we chose this company for the airboat experience. Was extremely disappointed and felt ripped off that we never went fast. Could have saved money and taken the big slow boat for the same experience. The guide was average. Holding the baby gator was the highlight of the experience. I expected at least a... More

This was a great swamp tour. Very informative and educational. We got to see some gators and we even got to hold Alan the baby alligator! We recommend this tour to anyone with sore feet from walking around the French Quarter!

Started off shaky with a booking problem but the staff made it right and then some. Took the shuttle from the French Quarter and our driver gave us some history on the way. We were on the small boat and I can't recommend it enough. Saw plenty of wildlife including bald eagles and enough alligators to lose count. Our boat... More

We were in a group of 5 couples visiting New Orleans for a long weekend. The airboat tour through the swamp was such an exciting experience - beautiful, peaceful scenery, incredible wildlife (alligators!) - expertly led by our fabulous guide Steve. Steve was so comfortable with the area, the boat, and the alligators. Well worth the time and money.

This is more of a pricy tour, but it's a great adventure. It was chillier when we went but we still saw alligators. Tour guide seemed to know where to find them. Got to hold a baby alligator.

I am usually not much for guided tours but this was the best part of our visit to the Big Easy! Got picked up in front of our hotel and took about a 35 minute bus ride out to their location. The tour tour was a mixture of a fast airboat ride and a close up view of nature and... More

Paul was our captain this trip had it all from high speed on the water to slow cruise in swamp. Paul was fearless, knowledgable, and funny. We saw multiple alligators and we were able to get up close and personable.

We wanted to try this cause you get the feeling that it is really amazing to be in the swamp and see alligators. We were disappointed. The tour is quite expensive and you don't get to see a lot of gators besides the ones that are captives and the little baby gator our tour guide pulled out from his pocket... More

Hi Elin, We're sad to hear you didn't enjoy your tour. We can't really control the number of alligators you'll see, but let us know if there's any other way we could improve your experience. We appreciate your feedback. Thank you! More

We took a tour one a boat the held up to 30 people. Its a nice ride through the swamp and when its warm you see a ton of gators. We saw turtles and several different kinds of birds as well. The guide threw marshmallows off the boat and the gators came right next to the boat to eat them.... More
