History of the Steamboat Natchez

The Natchez is the only true steam-powered boat on the Mississippi River today. There have been 10 Steamboat Natchez's, the sixth was the racer boat that beat Robert E. Lee in the 1870 boat race competition, and the Natchez has never lost a steamboat race. The new Steamboat Natchez was built in 1975 to carry on the beautiful tradition of its predecessors.

From general cruises to jazz dinner offerings, there is an array of different cruises taking place to ensure you find just the right environment for you and your party. Take in a true piece of New Orleans culture during your next visit with a stop aboard the Steamboat Natchez! Make your New Orleans Louisana respite an unforgettable experience.
