Paddlewheeler Creole Queen Historic Daytime Cruises


One of the most popular things to do in New Orleans is taking a cruise down the Mighty Mississippi River, one of the most unique ways to see the Big Easy. Hop aboard the Paddlewheeler Creole Queen and take a journey down the Mighty Mississippi while taking in 300 years of New Orleans history narrated by a local historian. Highlights of the tour include the founding of the city by the LeMoyne brothers, the expansion of the city into the “French Quarters” of the Treme and Marigny, the Louisiana Purchase, and the critical Battle of New Orleans. Guests will enjoy a smooth sail downriver to the Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and the historic Chalmette Battlefield where you’ll be invited to disembark for a one-hour shore excursion with a guided tour by National Park Rangers – New Orleans’ only riverboat cruise that features a tour of the Battlefield.
