Ultimate Swamp Adventures FAQ's
WHAT KIND OF ANIMALS WILL WE SEE?
There are all sorts of avians, reptiles, insects and mammals in the swamp. They all can be more active at different hours depending on the conditions, weather and season. Your boat captain will put you on the best tour possible to see as much as possible.
WHEN DO THE BOATS RUN?
Boats leave the dock at 9:45AM, 12pm, 2pm, 4pm and 6pm (if there is enough daylight for the 6pm tour). It is important that you be there 30 minutes before so you have plenty of time to check-in.

Yes! We have boats other than airboats that you can enjoy the swamp in. We have covered boats that are not loud and provide shade from the sun.

WHAT IS A RIDE IN A COVERED BOAT LIKE?
A covered boat is a larger boat with an awning that seats more people. It is not loud, unlike an airboat, and moves slower through the swamp. Great for photography!

You should always dress comfortably. If it is cooler outside, it is good to wear warmer clothes, especially on an airboat.
ARE THERE MOSQUITOES IN THE SWAMP?
Yes, but they rarely come out during the day. Please leave the spray at home.
WHAT HAPPENS IF THE WEATHER IS BAD?
Weather calls are up to the boat captain, who is the subject matter expert. Typically, storms blow over fairly quickly and you can still get on the water and enjoy your swamp tour. However, severe weather can abbreviate or cancel tours.
Is Alcohol Allowed?
Of course, It’s Louisiana! Let the good times roll! Please keep in mind that this is a family-friendly tour.
ARE THERE RESTRICTIONS TO BEING ON THE AIRBOAT?
Yes, you have to be at least 48 inches tall to ride the airboat. Expected mothers will need to take the swamp boat tour.
