Ragin Cajun's Take on July weather in New Orleans

Be prepared for hot humid weather with no real break over night. It makes us wonder how our ancestors managed without air conditioning! But … it’s still a great time to take an airboat ride to cool off on the bayou with the wind blowing in your face.

The local wildlife is very active at this time of year so you’ll see alligators along with all kinds of critters. Being out in the swamps and bayous is a great way to get a break from the heat of the city.

Customer Review of an Airboat Tour in July

Rita Kelso had this to say on her Google review:

“On Sunday, July 23, 2023, we had the pleasure of taking your 6-Passenger Airboat Tour in Luling with Captain Eric, a Louisiana Native, with an honored Danish name, noted by his passengers from Denmark, who accompanied us. The scenery was breathtaking, the weather pleasant and Eric showed us and explained the flora and fauna of the bayou and swamp: alligators, birds, owl and raccoon family, Spanish Moss and the banana spider at the dock. He answered every question we had which made this an EPIC experience. We rate Rajin Cajun Airboat Tours in Luling, LA, as topnotch and a must for everyone who wants to see what is behind the freeway and experience life in the swamp!”
