About Us

Founded in 2016, Gators and Guns is the only shooting tour in New Orleans; providing a fully automatic indoor shooting experience, followed by a two-hour airboat tour of the Louisiana swamp and bayou.

Gators and Guns was inspired by founders, Peter and Patrick’s love for the two tour activities.¬† These regular tour patrons often exposed their out-of-town guests to these exciting tour activities, which is what motivated them to establish Gators and Guns.

Gators and Guns provides hundreds of tours annually; every year growing in the number of guests and tour options.

Seeing the gators up close was AMAZING. Getting to touch the small one that the guide had on board was really cool – never knew what they felt like and getting to pass around that rubbery-feeling animal was a whole new experience. Felt VERY safe at the gun range with the professionals there. Good fun, exciting, and very well organized….

My husband and I were just looking for a swamp tour when we found this pamphlet for gators and guns. I had never been to a gun range before so we thought we’d try it out. Jimmy was our bus driver and gave us a cute little tour around New Orleans he was awesome. The gun range was so fun…

This was by far the highlight of my trip to NoLa. The staff at Gators and Guns literally cater to your every need and treat you with real southern hospitality. So completely happy we booked with them! Oh, and our driver for the day, Jimmy; he was perhaps the nicest, sweetest man I have ever met in NoLa!
