What is A Ride On The Wild Side tour?

The tours go through swamp, over the marsh, and through moss draped
trees. You will see hawks, herons, egrets, and occasionally bald eagles. We
have over 50 species of birds. You can see alligators up to November. They
start coming out when the weather starts warming up around February.

We are located 45 minutes from downtown New Orleans. From Baton Rouge about
90 minutes. We are 15 minutes away from the nearest plantations in
Destrehan. We are about 40 minutes from Oak Alley Plantation, Laura
Plantation, St Joseph and Whitney. We have great restaurants within 5 min
from our location. There are several RV parks nearby.

Our airboats are piloted by USCG approved captains.  The airboat tours are
made by appointment. We do accept drive -ups.


What should I bring?

We suggest bringing sunscreen, sunglasses, and a cap on the daytime in
the summer months during the day. On the sunset tour I suggest long pants
and light shirt. I would not wear white or yellow on the sunset tour. I
would bring mosquito spray for the night tour.

In the winter months, I would wear something  warm. The temperature is
much colder on the water.


Do I need special insurance?

We do not require you to carry insurance.


Do I sign a waiver?

We do have waivers that you must sign to ride on the airboat. We can
supply a copy to you in advance, if you have a large group.


Is a deposit required?

We take a credit card number to hold your reservation. You may cancel up
to the day before the tour at no charge. On the day of the tour if the
weather conditions are not conducive to a tour, in the captains opinion, we
cancel at no charge.


When is full payment due?

We will charge the credit card when you come on the tour. Please bring
the card with you if you want to use the same card.  You can use another
credit card or you can pay cash when you come. You can pay separately at
this time.
