Our guide to Steamboat Natchez Harbour Jazz Cruise
After boarding the historic vessel to the delightful tunes of the Steam Calliope, this relaxing two-hour cruise will take you from the heart of the French Quarter back to when cotton was king and life was slow and graceful as the current on the Mississippi.
Experience the sights and sounds of river life that enchanted characters of history and literature - like Mark Twain's Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer - and see the bustling activity of America's second largest port!
As well as the scenery, there is live narration and Duke Heitger's Steamboat Stompers Jazz Trip entertaining you along the way so all you have to do is sit back and soak up the unique atmosphere.
