Let us take you back to when life was as slow and graceful as the current on the Mississippi. The Natchez paddle-steamer is the pride of the Mississippi River. True to tradition in every detail, boarding the Natchez makes you feel as if you have entered another era. The calliope trills a melody into the air while the great wheel, 25 tons of white oak, churns the heavy waters of the Mississippi.

Your 2 hour harbour cruise will take you along the Mississippi, where you can admire the city which is best seen from the river, and listen to the sounds of a jazz band as they echo through the paddle-steamer.

During your time on board Natchez, a casual local style buffet lunch will be available for you to enjoy.
