The Paddlewheeler Creole Queen

Constructed in Moss Point, Mississippi, the Paddlewheeler Creole Queen took her maiden voyage on October 1, 1983. She is an authentic paddlewheeler powered by a 24-foot diameter paddlewheel and the most modern, fuel efficient GE diesel-electric system ever installed in a boat of this class. Even though the Creole Queen would have been right at home among the steamboats of 1850's New Orleans, passengers of that era could never have conceived of a paddlewheeler with her luxury, comfort and safety. Ninety tons of air conditioning and heating keep the interior spaces pleasant all year round. Luxurious private rooms, stereo music and sound systems, modern restrooms and handicapped accessible facilities all combine to make the Paddlewheeler Creole Queen a true floating palace.

With our highly skilled staff of event specialists, creating customized parties and events is no problem. You can reserve just one room, the entire deck, or take a whole-boat charter allowing privacy and greater flexibility in planning your party. You can choose any type of entertainment you desire from our fabulous in-house jazz band or any of New Orleans' finest musicians and artists. Remain dockside or have a river cruise down the mighty Mississippi River, the options are endless! We can even assist you with transportation, hotel accomodations, or booking additional tours and attractions. Give our team a call at 504-293-2314 and ask for Group Sales.

The Creole Queen riverboat features outer decks with authentically patterned wrought iron trims inviting guests to stroll back in time as they settle into the mood of a bygone era. The interiors are richly appointed with plush Victorian style draperies, soft period lighting, wooden parquet dance floors, and Louisiana Cypress bars accented with brass railing for a warm and welcoming setting.
