AN AIRBOAT SWAMP TOUR VS. A TRADITIONAL SWAMP BOAT TOUR
AuthorBasin Landing Staff
Atchafalaya Basin Landing Airboat Swamp Tours has added a new, custom, one-of-a-kind traditional swamp tour boat to our fleet! We are excited to announce that we have something for everyone now, and we will be expanding our operations to include fully tailored charters and excursions on the new boat. Whether you just want to join a public tour group or create your own adventure in the swamps, we have you covered!
Atchafalaya Basin Traditional Boat Swamp Tour
Our newest vessel was born out of our desire to serve more guests, in more ways, year round. Our captains and our incredible Basin Landing team have spent the last few months completely remodeling a bigger traditional swamp boat that meets all of the demands our customers have been asking for. This 24 person tour boat has floor to ceiling retractable windows, comfortable bench seating, a restroom and vanity, a Bluetooth sound system, and a patio to soak it all in.
While restrictions have previously prevented us from being able to tour north of I-10 in airboats, we are now able to take guests to this beautiful area of the basin in the new tour boat. In addition to our 2PM weekly $39 tours that will be open to the public 7 days a week (6 person minimum, by reservation), we will also be offering after hours private chartered trips for groups. These excursions will include evening tours where you can be your own DJ and party with your closest friends out on the gorgeous Atchafalaya swamp. These trips can be customized to include food and beverages, and we can accommodate two or three hour tours when the entire boat is chartered.
Our new traditional boat has twin 60 horsepower outboard motors, cypress floors and ceilings, life vests for every seat, and screen doors. It’s perfect for corporate gatherings, birthday parties, bachelor/bachelorette parties, engagement parties, field trips, Sunday Funday with your friends, and so much more!
Atchafalaya Basin Airboat Swamp Tours
For those who want to get a little closer to the action, it’s truly just the beginning of airboat weather, and our family could not be more excited to take your family on an airboat tour out into the ancient cypress woods of the Atchafalaya for a deeper look at the natural beauty of this region. Famous worldwide for our diverse ecosystem, centuries old forests, incredible wildlife and beautiful scenery, the basin is a place we are so proud to call home. Our fleet of five 500+ hp boats is the largest in the Basin area, and we are rated the #1 Henderson swamp tour on Trip Advisor, Facebook, Yelp and Google Reviews.
Our airboat swamp tours are approximately 1.5 hours each, and they run 7 days a week (by reservation), starting at $49 person. For more information, visit our website at basinlanding.com/airboat-swamp-tours.
