Airboats

What could possibly be more fun than seeing the Atchafalaya Swamp on an airboat?!
For those who may not know, an airboat is a flat bottom boat powered by an automotive engine. This engine then spins an aircraft propeller, which pushes the boat forward. These boats are often used in swamp and marsh areas where water is too shallow for other boats. On day two of your trek, a true Cajun by the name of Mitch Mequet, will lead you on an adrenaline filled ride on his airboat with over 600 horsepower! As you twist and turn between cypress and tupelo trees you will see the swamp’s nature and wildlife in fun and exciting ways you never imagined.
