Atchafalaya Basin Airboat Swamp Tours: Our 20th Year in Review

2019 has been a year of growth and change for everyone at Atchafalaya Basin Landing. From the addition of Tucker’s son Nick to our team of airboat captains to a new brand and website, the maiden voyage of our newest airboat “The Henderson Hurricane,” our 20th anniversary has been a memorable and exciting year for all of us. We are incredibly grateful to our visitors for making us the #1 Swamp Tour in Henderson on Trip Advisor, Facebook, Google and Yelp. We are thankful to each and every person who visited us for a tour, our amazing fishing community, and our Turtle’s patrons who helped us to make so many wonderful new memories both on and off the water.

2019 Highlights

Some of the highlights of this year have been our back porch live music party celebrating La Fete du Musique, the installation of brand new signage on the levee road, a gator running off with (and returning) Tucker’s beloved LSU hat, hosting the Junior Bass Masters Tournament (our largest ever fishing tournament), hosting The King of Henderson tournament, over $5000 of giveaways for everything from concert tickets to airboat tours to weekend getaways, and a visit from @TheJurgys, a travel-loving family that has over 225,000 followers on YouTube. Because of the support of our Facebook community, we were able to max out our annual donation of $1000 to the Louisiana Cajun Navy.

Family Owned and Operated

We have always been a family business, deeply rooted in the Henderson community at large. The Friedman family has also grown this year by two new grandbabies, and we hope to pass our beloved airboat stories from the swamp down to their generation in a few years time. We consider ourselves blessed to not only love what we do each and every day, but to share the glorious beauty of the Atchafalaya Basin with visitors from all over the world.

2019 was a banner year for us, and we can’t wait to see what 2020 has in store. Our fleet of custom, covered airboats ran just about every single day that we had safe weather in 2019, and we are meeting ongoing goals of steady and sustainable improvement of our boats and facilities to provide the best experience for our guests possible. We thank everyone who stopped by for a tour, a cold beer, a t-shirt or just to say hello! Book a tour by calling 337.228.7880 today.
