Great overall, the only issue is having to wait so long after taking the transportation option, about an hour before we could board the airboat. However once on our guide was very knowledgeable and really funny and kind. April is still a little on the chilly side, so jackets and pants is smarter than shorts and t-shirts. Also when the weather is on the colder side, there are not as many gators out and about. But overall we saw 10-15 gators and loved the experience!
Cruise was the perfect length and a really enjoyable run down and back from the city. Boarding was fast and efficient with Gina, the director, taking time to talk with our family and make us feel like special guests. The food for the brunch was surprisingly good - it could have easily been phoned in, but offered a great sampling of local cuisine. It was a great time - thanks a lot!
I've never been on an air boat, so I was excited about the experience! It was a great ride through various parts of the swamps and marsh. Our tour guide gave us a great story and history about the area! Saw and fed some alligators, but it was really cool at noontime, so only the younger ones were out eating. I'd do it again!
This was the highlight of our trip in New Orleans. Don’t miss the food! So glad we decided on dinner with the cruise. Music was wonderful! We will return.
Charles, our narrator, was very knowledgable with a great delivery. We learned so much about the Battle of New Orleans as well as Hurricane Katrina.
