Get ready to discover Louisiana's stunning bayou in a unique, fun way when you take this fantastic airboat trip. This hovercraft ride will take you to beautiful hidden corners that traditional boats can't reach and, with a little luck, you'll see alligators.

Hovercraft Trip in Barataria Preserve

Prepare to meet the colorful creatures of the bayou, such as ospreys, pelicans, frogs, turtles, owls, and snakes. We will meet up at your chosen time on Barataria Boulevard where we board the airboat which will take us on a fantastic tour of the swamps of the Barataria Preserve.

We will sail through the waters of these marshes which form part of the Jean Lafitte National Park, discovering this unique ecosystem along the way.

The hovercraft makes our tour a true adventure, as we reach speeds of up 40 miles per hour. We will also slow down in certain places so you can capture the amazing scenery on your camera. The airboat will also take us to hidden corners of the reserve that are not accessible in more traditional types of vessels. This is an experience you will never forget!

During the journey, the captain will tell you about the local way of life and culture. You will also find out how the fishermen manage to survive in this land of hungry alligators.

We will finish the tour an hour and 40 minutes after we began our brilliant adventure.

Capacity of the hovercrafts

There is a choice of two types of airboat for this activity: a standard one with a capacity of up to 16 people or one that can accommodate up to 9 people. You will share the trip with other travelers, but the route and commentary will be more personalized in the small group option.

Hotel pick up

If you prefer, you can also book a collection service from your hotel. We will pick you up one and a half hours before the start of the boat ride and, once the activity is over, we will take you back to your accommodation in New Orleans.
