Sent my hubby and 5 buddies on a surprise NOLA weekend. Airboat tour was a must on my list. After lots of research I settled on Ultimate Swamp Adventures. Nick helped answer all my questions and took my reservation over the phone. The guys had a great time and got to see 2 gators even though it's winter. Would highly... More

My family (2 adults, kids ages 6-12) enjoyed the trip down the swamp on their pontoon boat. Our guide was very knowledgeable, the weather was great, and we got to see some gators.

Awesome trip! Captain Gary was awesome! We saw adult and baby alligators and learned a lot about the bayou! Ricks was fabulous showing as around the city on our way to the tour! Thanks for a great morning!!

The air boat ride was a great time. "Captain Scott" was very knowledgeable about the bayou and the eco system it supports. There was a very limited number of alligator sightings due to cooler than average temperatures. Scott pointed out nutria, various birds, turtles, nesting areas and the couple of alligators still out. I don't feel like we missed anything... More

My family ( wife and two boys) loved the swamp airboat ride. Everything worked like clock work, right from the first call I made to them , the booking, the knoweldgeable guides ( Mitch ) and the overall learning experience. I highly recommend this company and tour.

There are two types of tour. One on a big boat and the other is a small airboat. We didn't know and got the big boat tour. Not sure if it's because of season, luck or just because we weren't on the airboat, we didn't get to see gator feeding or holding them. We went down the bayou and saw... More

We had a great time but only saw small alligators because we went in December. The weather was beautiful and the guide was very knowledgeable. The swamp itself was so nice because they have kept it so pure and non-commercial.

The tour guide was super funny and knowledgeable. The tour was much cheaper if you use the Groupon app. If you are near the French quarter I would drive it is only 20-30 minutes (depending on traffic) and easy to find. We went in December and apparently crocodiles hibernate from November to March so it was simply the swamps and... More

My friends and I booked this tour through Groupon ($59 for four people, plus $15 per person for a shuttle from our hotel). It was pretty easy to book on the phone and they also did not put up a fuss when I wanted to switch dates because of the weather forecast. On the tour itself we unfortunately did not... More
