Basin Landing Airboat and Swamp Tour | Atchafalaya Basin Traditional Swamp Boat Tours

Over the spring, Atchafalaya Basin Landing Airboat Swamp Tours added a traditional swamp boat to our fleet. Guides Tucker and Nick Friedman and Cal Guidry gutted a houseboat completely down to the nuts and bolts and brought this beauty back to life withatcha several customizations that make it a one-of-a-kind vessel for all of your group tour needs. This 24 passenger traditional swamp tour boat allows our guides to take guests north of I-10 to completely different areas of the swamp where airboats are not allowed to travel. If you've been on one of our airboat swamp tours, schedule a traditional swamp boat tour with us to see (literally) the other side of the gorgeous Atchafalaya Basin.

Work Christmas Parties

September is around the time each year that companies begin planning for their annual work Christmas parties. Our traditional swamp boat is a perfect way to entertain groups of up to 24 people, and we can tailor your experience to your needs. With floor-to-ceiling windows that can be opened all the way to let the breeze flow through, our "big boat," as we call it, can take you and your group for a sunset cruise with snacks and drinks for up to 2.5 hours. We have an onboard Bluetooth sound system so that you can make your own playlist, or you can leave that up to the guide and he will take care of you.

Bachelor & Bachelorette Parties

Our traditional swamp boat makes an easy, fun, affordable way to host a bachelor or bachelorette party. Fit up to 24 of your best buddies comfortably with bench seating. A bathroom and vanity make longer boat rides possible, and without the noise of the big airboat engines, your guide can take you out to relax and have conversations over champagne or cocktails.

Field Trips

If you are a teacher, our traditional swamp boat makes for a perfect field trip to show students the magic, flora, and fauna of the oldest and largest cypress swamp in the United States. Our guides have lived on this swamp their entire lives and are experts at answering questions about birds, alligators, plants, marine life, and so much more. Call Atchafalaya Basin Landing to book a field trip that the kids, teachers, and chaperones will never forget.
