Full description
Take a combined half-day tour of the Mississippi River on board an historic steamboat and explore the world of the buccaneer Jean Lafitte as you travel from the French Quarter of New Orleans to the shore of Lake Pontchartrain.

Discover 3 centuries of history, legends and romance as you encounter “The City That Care Forgot!” Your experienced guide will amaze you with stories of voodoo and piracy on the Bayou St. John, the water used by Jean Lafitte and his band of pirates, as you make your way to the shores of Lake Pontchartrain.

After your exciting Super City Tour by motorcoach, board the historic Steamboat Natchez, the last Authentic Steamboat on the Mississippi River. On this 2-hour day cruise you will get the sense of the early days of this port city when life was as slow and graceful as the current on the Mississippi River.

Enjoy a Steam Calliope jazz concert on board the Natchez as you cruise past the Chalmette Battlefield, where Jean Lafitte and his buccaneers joined forces with Andrew Jackson to defeat the British in the Battle of New Orleans.
