New Orleans, LA is one of the most beautiful and historic places in the country, and the best way to soak up its vibrant culture and unique atmosphere is by heading out on the coveted Steamboat Natchez.

As you climb aboard this iconic paddle-wheel steamer, you will combine sightseeing with amazing music and a delicious meal for some of the most memorable moments in NOLA. 

About the Cruise

Upon departing the wharf where the Natchez docks, every cruise begins with a thrilling roar from its steam whistle, harkening you back to days gone by while also marking the start of a remarkable adventure. The trip, which lasts for approximately two hours, provides a unique experience that challenges your expectations. The mesmerizing beauty of the city scape and the gentle rhythmic pulse of the Mississippi under the boat's paddle when observed from the deck provides an uplifting experience that makes this a must-have journey. As the city passes by, your guide provides riveting history and trivia about New Orleans and the mighty river that shaped it. As you enjoy the cool river breeze, the highly anticipated highlight of your tour, the live jazz band begins to play. The soundtrack to your journey, done in traditional New Orleans style, provides a rich, authentic atmosphere unreproducible in any other setting.

Engage with the Natchez's proud history by visiting the steam engine room or enjoying iconic Southern dishes in its dining area. Capable of carrying over 1,000 passengers, Natchez is a true testament to the grandeur of old-time river boats, and its loving preservation is a testament to the respect the city has for its history.  As your voyage on the Steamboat Natchez comes to an end, you'll realize this was just not a sightseeing mission, but rather a ticket into the heart of the great city of New Orleans. Renowned jazz, stirring history, scenic views, and warm southern hospitality combined with the boat's old fashioned charm promise an exquisitely romantic and memorable affair.
