This was one of the best tour we have taken. Darius, our bus driver, was so patient with us since we were running a few minutes behind. He was very informative on our way back to New Orleans recommending some of the good spits to eat and visit. Our airboat tour guide was Jay. He was so funny and made this experience truly memorable. I highly recommend this tour.

This was a well organized and informative, as well as fun tour. We enjoyed the airboat we were on and had a fun tour guide that made sure we saw plenty of wildlife. I would do this tour again, but maybe next time take one of the smaller boats with fewer people only because I liked the stadium seating on the smaller boats, so everyone could get a good view and plenty of good pictures. We had good seats on this boat but the people in the middle of the seats may not have had as good of a view as we did being on the outside. The boat was fun to ride on and our tour guide was very knowledgeable and had a good sense of humor. I highly recommend this tour

What You'll Get


Travel by air-conditioned coach from central New Orleans to the nearby fishing village of Jean Lafitte, named after an 18th-century smuggler. Home to a variety of diverse cultures, this area surrounded by Lousiana bayous has been the site of extensive logging operations, sugar and rice plantations and animal trapping enterprises over the years. Today, the people's simple way of life is a marked contrast to the hustle-bustle of New Orleans.

In Jean Lafitte, you can get some snacks (own expense) and check out an albino alligator exhibit before boarding your airboat, a vessel that relies on an aircraft-type propeller mounted on its back to move it forward. Feel the wind in your hair as your move swiftly over the wetlands.

Your native boat captain will talk about the history and culture of the area and point out wildlife as you travel. See lots of alligators lurking in the marshes, as well as local birds, raccoons and nutria -- giant river rodents that call the bayous home.

Conclude your 4-hour family-friendly escape to the Louisiana wetlands with coach transport back to central New Orleans.
