New Orleans Boating Trips

Explore Boating in New Orleans


Located along the mighty Mississippi River and in close proximity to Lake Pontchartrain and Louisiana’s Gulf Coast, boating is practically a national pastime in New Orleans. Rent a boat and cruise around the country’s second-largest saltwater lake. Or, for an experience that is truly New Orleans, take a swampboat tour to get a peek at the local flora and fauna of the bayou. If you would like a boating excursion that’s a bit more low-key, board the Natchez Steamboat and take a sunset cruise of Old Man River.
