    Excellent guide but weather was cold!

    Our guide, Dylan, was so entertaining and knew everything about the "swamp." We would love to take this trip again if the weather is better. The small airboat itself was a total blast!!!

    Best excursion ever!!!

    We went to New Orleans with a jammed packed 2 days full of different excursions and this one was by far our favorite. We went in the small airboat for a max of 8 people with T Earl as our guide. He was amazing! We saw so many alligators and even got to hold a baby alligator! He grew up on the bayou and knows so much history and fun facts as he takes you around. The value of this excursion is beyond expectation!! 1. The airboat goes really fast and it's high speed fun! Skidding across the water. 2. You come within feet of alligators 3. You learn a lot: lots of historical info and alligator facts 4. You possibly can hold a BABY ALLIGATOR!! At least we did. 5. It's absolutely stunning! I had no clue how pretty it would be. Tip: Go to the 9:45am tihs slot. That's when the most alligators are... read more

    Good but could be better

    Guide was awesome and very informative but they had to many people on the boat to get above the swell and be a true ‘airboat’.

    Hi Bryan, Thanks for booking with us and sharing your feedback. This vendor also offers a small boat option which carries less people, so we'd suggest trying that one next time. Hope you enjoyed your visit overall and that we see you again! TripShock Guest Service Manager

    Crossed off my bucket list!

    The airboat was fun but I wanted to go faster. Next time I would choose a smaller boat with less people. Overall, a lot of fun and Richie was a great captain!
