Visit USA France has tested for you: the airboat tour in the Bayous !

Adrenalin, sun and alligators are here for this 1 hr 30 min. excursion proposed by the family-owned company Arthur Mathurne, located 45 minutes Southwest of New Orleans, in Des Allemands.
  
After a lunch at the restaurant Spahr’s, facing nice garden overlooking the bayou Des Allemands, off we go for an excursion in the heart of the bayous. The boat gets launched at a very fast speed (the maximum speed of these 6-seat airboats is about 60 miles per hour), our guide gives interesting information about the fauna and flora with a good sense of humor. We could say that bayous are his garden – he knowns the finest corners – and that alligators are his… domestic animals.
  
These alligators come very close to the boat, sometimes too close, and we get frightened. During the excursion, the boat goes through incredible and varied scenery, and our guide finds  his way in all circumstances. Guaranteed sensations and delight !!!
  
Groups or people who prefer relaxation and calm can choose the 15-seat boats tour with a lower speed (40-45 miles per hour).
  
Please have a look at our favorite excursion on Facebook !
