New Orleans Historic Cruise

For a New Orleans daytime excursion that is both fun and educational, the Creole Queen Historic Cruise takes passengers to the Chalmette Battlefield by way of the Mississippi River. This cruise, offered twice daily in the morning and afternoon is narrated by a costumed re-enactor who recounts the fascinating history of New Orleans while cruising to the famous battlefield at the Jean Lafitte National Historical Park. Highlights of the tour include the founding of the city by the LeMoyne brothers, the expansion of the city into the “French Quarters” of the Treme and Marigny, the Louisiana Purchase, and the Battle of New Orleans. The historical cruise includes a one-hour tour of the battlefield lead by National Park Rangers before sailing back to harbor.
