Rajun Cajun Airboat Tour will NOT disappoint
Well just to begin, reconsider going in August. It has nothing to do with Rajun Cajun, they were beyond GREAT, more about that in a minute. But August is 95-100 degree with 90% humidity. Ungodly HOT!!! Now for the good stuff. We took the shuttle option which picked us up at the front door of the hotel. About a 30-45 drive to the Rajun Cajun facility. They checked us in right away and about 10-15 minutes until our boat was ready. Our guide, sorry cant remember his name, was a young blond man who was very knowledgeable and a keen sense of humor. It was a 9 passenger air boat, which is there smallest boat. 3 rows of 3 person padded benches. Be warned, no seatbelts or rails, so hang-on. Saw some small Gators as soon as we got out onto the main swampway. The guide talked about how they eat and sleep as well as the history of some of the plantlife around us. All pretty informative stuff. Once we got out of the main swampway and into some back water, he revved up the fan and we started really moving. Stopped a few times to get closer looks at a few Gators and he gave us some more information. Now for the warning. STAY HYDRATED!!!! Bring some water with you and maybe a small ice chest with ice and more water. My wife got overheated and really ill. Fortunately it was at the very end of the tour. I asked the guide to take us back and he again revved up the boat and brought us back right away. Thanks to his concern, things could have gotten much worse. He helped us bring her to the air conditioned office and got us more ice and water. Cannot thank them enough for all of there honest help and concern. Glad to say that after about 1-2 hours later, my wife was ready to get back in vacation mode. Highly recommend Rajun Cajun. Worth the $120 each (included transportation). It was everything we expected. IT did NOT dissappoint.

Unforgettable!
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!

More info
I EXPECTED MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE ECO SYSTEM AND THE HISTORY OF THE AREA. WOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER IF THE GUIDE COULD HAVE TALKED ABOUT THE PLANTS AND ENVIROMENT.

Airboat tour and gators = great time
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
