The Boats

Nature Tour Boat

Nature Tour Boat

The Atchafalaya Basin is a demanding place for boats. Our boats are double hulled Aluminum powered by Mercury 4 Cycle Outboards. Outboards are used instead of airboats to allow access to parts of the basin where airboats are not allowed and to minimize disturbance to wildlife.

Netting is provided around the boat to provide protection from the invasive Jumping Carp now infesting the Basin.

All safety equipment including the required live jackets are provided on the boats. The Atchafalaya Experience is fully commercially insured.
