Captain Chip was awesome. He was not only educational but funny! He pointed out things in the swamp that I had no idea happens down there. Many opportunities to get alligator pictures. He can maneuver that airboat at a high speed in tight places very very impressive. Well worth the money to take a small airboat you get to see many different things that you can't with a bigger boat.

Airboat ride of the Lafitte swamp near New Orleans.

We booked this tour because my wife has wanted to do an airboat ride for years and we were in New Orleans waiting on a cruise. We thoroughly enjoyed the airboat ride. We got to hold a baby alligator and watch the tour guide feed several alligators. The trip was about an hour and 45 minutes long. The boat had stadium seats so that everyone could get a good view. Since we chose the large boat we stayed in the waterway instead of running over swampy land. Good trip if you are looking to experience an airboat and see some of the wild life.

This was super fun. Well worth the money. I wish we would have take the transportation they provide. It’s hard to get around in New Orleans.

This was by far the best airboat trip we have taken here in LA. The captain of the boat was AMAZING, make sure you try and get his boat as he is fun, knowledgeable and incredibly friendly. I just tried to find the name of our captain from their website but his picture isn't there. For the price and what you get this tour is unbeatable! Definitely glad we opted to pay a little more for a small boat as the experience is so much better, more personal and you get to see more. Just looked at other reviews and his name came to me.....Captain Kelly! Insist on him and you won't be let down.
