We did the small airboat tour and totally loved it. The guide was informative and interesting. We loved hearing his stories of the bayou and growing up in the area. Well worth it!!

We booked the small airboat- there were 6 of us on it & that was a perfect number. We were so glad we did that when we saw the hundreds of other people pull up and load into the bigger boats. Our guide was great- I think his name was Brandon or Brennan (or something with a B). He grew up in the swamps and had a healthy respect and love for the area. He shared stories of the area, of the flora and fauna, the alligators, birds, fish and other wildlife. He did not lure any alligators with meat/marshmallows or the sort- all the gators he spotted were out sunning. I was impressed with his tour & the info he shared. It was a pricey tour but we are glad we booked it and got to see some of Louisiana's natural beauty outside of city.

"Airboat" Adventures could be called "Apathetic" Adventures based on our experience. Honestly, we were underwhelmed by this airboat adventure and were surprised based on the generally enthusiastic reviews. We were on a large airboat and Captain Corey seemed to be phoning it in. During the 1st hour, he interacted with the passengers for about half the time. Yes he was humorous and knowledgeable for the first two alligator encounters but for the rest of the boat ride (45 min. approx.) he was silent, even passing by alligators and turtles (that passengers pointed out to him)! I don't fault the guide for minimal wildlife (a few alligators and the skipped turtles I mentioned) that appeared on this particular day, but I do have a problem with not being an engaging guide and telling us about the swamp surroundings, nature, etc. the rest of the time. AA is a huge operation and at times felt like I was being herded onto a tram at an amusement park. All the boats, big or small, go out at same time. A big tourist attraction that, based on our particular experience, was not justified by the cost unfortunately.
