The Creole Queen is an traditional riverboat powered by a 24-ft diameter paddlewheel and New Orleans' only Historic River Cruise! Focusing on 300 years of New Orleans history, this cruise is narrated by a local historian who takes guests on a journey through the story of the city as we sail downriver to the Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and the historic Chalmette Battlefield. 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. A one-hour shore excursion at the battlefield features a guided tour and talk by National Park Rangers.
Boarding the Creole Queen begins at 1:30pm for a 2:00pm departure from the Spanish Plaza. Tickets include lunch on board.
