Activity Description

Your two-hour cruise from the heart of the French Quarter takes you back when cotton was king and life was slow and graceful as the current on the Mississippi. Let us show you New Orleans, one of the world's most active ports, as it can best be seen from the river aboard New Orleans' only authentic Steamboat...The Steamboat Natchez.

Once onboard, you'll ride the graceful current of the mighty Mississippi and explore the Port of New Orleans, one of the world's most active ports! Discover the nooks and crannies of this unique ship – you can wander the decks, and explore the engine room and the ship's quarters – while an experienced guide narrates an historical tour of the city, river and port. You'll also learn fascinating details about the Natchez, which was built in 1975. (Fun fact: the Natchez has competed in several steamboat races and has never lost race, including winning the Great Steamboat Race in 1982.)
