1-1/2 hour daily sightseeing tours of the Mississippi River aboard a 150-passenger, authentic paddle wheeler. Weekend dinner, & brunch cruises. Also, 3-hr cruises -- call for dates. Departs from Riverside Park May-Oct. Reservations required.


The La Crosse Queen is a modern-day replica of the Grand River boats that plied the Mississippi River in the late 19th Century. She is one of the few authentic Mississippi River paddlewheel river boats still in operation in the country today. In keeping with early traditions, she was built with stern wheels that are her only means of propulsion.

The La Crosse Queen has a split stern wheel and each is run by a twin diesel engine that powers hydraulic motors which turn the paddles. This is in contrast to most Mississippi River paddle wheelers in operation today that have a "free wheeling" paddlewheel at the stern of the boat for visual effect, but have traditional screw-type engines hidden for their real means of propulsion.

Passenger loading at the river boat dock: West end of State Street, downtown La Crosse, Wisconsin, on the North end of Riverside Park .For Charter and Group Rate Information contact our Sales Department at 608/784-8523.
