Yes! Because of the overwhelming popularity of these tours, we do sell out daily.
This question is very dependent upon the time of year. Though no time is a bad time, our favorite tours during the summer months are the morning and evening tours. Depending on the time of year, our evening tours range from 2:00-6:00 depending on seasonal sunlight. As the weather begins to cool, the midday tours are preferred.
There is no bad time to go! Each of our seasons provides a unique experience. Though alligators are cold blooded and tend to be harder to find in extreme temperatures, our captains are extremely adept with locating them and are successful most of the time. During the Spring and summer months, the swamp is flush with greenery and flowering plants. Wildlife is abundant during all months but can sometimes be easier to locate during the winter months as less leaf cover and foliage allows for easier spotting.
Certainly! Each of our guides grew up immersed in the South Louisiana lifestyle. For most this includes: hunting, fishing, and trapping from early ages. Our guides are fluent captains and well versed in swamp ecosystem and rich history of the area.
Pregnant women, children under the age of 5, and those with severe back or neck injuries are prohibited from riding airboats. Private tours can accommodate some of the aforementioned, but need to be stated prior to booking.
We recommend casual attire. Mud and water can be encountered, so we do recommend our patrons be aware and dress accordingly. Please check the weather conditions prior to your tour to ensure you are dressed properly. Since airboats operate at high speeds, it is recommended that you pack a light jacket if it is a little cooler.
Size! The captains and overall experience remain the same. Small airboats do allow guests a more personal and intimate experience, but the overall tour remains the same. We recommend large airboat rides as they are not only more readily available, but more economical as well.
Nope! Mosquitoes are rarely encountered during our tours. Predacious insects such as dragonflies do a masterful job of controlling the numbers, especially during daylight hours.
Yes! If you enjoyed your ride, please tip your guide!
