Gray Line New Orleans , 400 Toulouse St, New Orleans, LA 70130, USA

The Gray Line 'Lighthouse' ticket office is located at Toulouse St and the Mississippi River (Steamboat Natchez Dock), just one block from Jackson Square in the French Quarter.

6:00 PM
This activity will end right where it started.
Head to Toulouse Street in the French Quarter and board your beautiful riverboat. This paddlewheel ship — one of the last of its kind in New Orleans — will transport you back to the 19th century when ports bustled with produce-laden cargo ships, steamboats, and clandestine privateering.

Take a stroll along the deck as you begin the journey along the Mississippi River. Then have a seat in the cabin or on the outside deck, where you’ll get unobstructed views of the striking shoreline at dusk, and soak up some live jazz tunes from the Grammy-nominated Dukes of Dixieland, a true New Orleans-style band.

As for dinner, your tableside meal might include anything from chicken and sausage gumbo to cheesy penne pasta. Top it off with signature bread pudding accompanied by coffee and tea.

Your evening cruise ends back at the departure point in the French Quarter.

Please Note: The "starting from" price displayed is based on the cruise only option.

Your itself was good. But they make you eat the dinner first and then leave the restaurant before the boat takes off. The Music was cool. It’s better to get just bout tour itself rather than dinner package. You can have a better dinner somewhere else with that cost.

Me and my husband are down in NOLA as part of our honeymoon. The ride was beautiful and smooth. The sunset over the city line was amazing and the jazz was awesome. Although there was a lot of people, it wasn’t too crowded and didn’t affect the service. Very relaxing an romantic!
