All Aboard!

From the time you board the Betsy Ann Riverboat until the time you step back onshore, we promise you an experience that creates memories to last a lifetime. Come aboard, close your eyes, and let your mind water as you listen to the paddle slapping the water in perfect time. There is no better way to enjoy the beautiful scenery and waters of historic Bay Saint Louis than on a true old-fashioned paddlewheel boat.

Whether young or old, you imagine a bygone era – a period when paddlewheelers were the modern marvel of their time – the days of Mark Twain. Come learn the history of the Betsy Ann, the Mississippi Gulf Coast and more. Come enjoy the peacefulness of just being on the water. See lots of playful dolphins and watch the brown pelican flying in formation just inches above the water or diving from the air to catch a fish. You can even come up in the pilot house with the captain, steer the boat, and get your picture taken with the huge wheel.

Wonderful Experience!

We traveled up and down the Mississippi with the smell of a Hibachi meal being prepared and the sounds of an entertainer playing our favorite songs. The crew was so helpful and friendly, too!
