It awakes the senses when you are in the wild. The Mississippi was such a beauty and plenty of alligators to see. Our guide Brian was brilliant, definetly would repeat the experience if I were closer by. Thank you!

Airboat tour and gators = great time

about 1 year ago
This was our first time to NOLA and first time on an airboat. Captain Eric was fantastic. We saw a ton of gators, held a baby gator and learned so much about them. Totally enjoyed it. This was for sure a highlight of our time in the area and so glad we did it
