One river - two boats

Built in 1914, the Belle is the only remaining authentic steamboat from the great American packet boat era. A National Historic Landmark and an icon of the Louisville waterfront, the Belle is the most widely traveled steamboat in American history.

Louisville’s newest addition to the waterfront, the Mary is named for America’s first female licensed steamboat captain. With as much spirit as her namesake, the Mary is a propeller-driven riverboat with old fashioned charm and modern amenities.

Testimonials

We could talk for hours about what it’s like to spend a day on the Belle, but instead we thought we’d share what others are saying about the Louisville Lady.

We just recently had our wedding reception on the Belle of Louisville and it truly was magical! Diane was so flexible and worked to make our day very unique and special just for us! Absolutely would recommend to anyone!

Diane and team were super accommodating throughout the planning through execution of the wedding party. We did not have an outside wedding planner and Diane helped us manage the details of the event while ensuring our vision for the evening was captured. All of our guests left saying this was the most fun wedding they had ever been to!

Charles,

Diane and staff were wonderful! They went above and beyond to make our wedding a success. This was a very challenging task as we had many obstacles but Diane was right there, by our side and tackled these obstacles as if they were her own! She treated us like family and we will forever be grateful!

The Belle of Louisville is a must, no matter if you live in Louisville or just visiting. Even though us Louisvillians are not blessed with being near a beach, at least we have some cool boat rides and we can enjoy ourselves on over the Ohio River. This is one of those things in Louisville that you need to do at least once. It's always a great time!

We had a great time on the boat enjoying the upper deck and the river views. Clean boat. Good food. The tour trip up river and back was just the right length of time. The crew were very nice and helpful. I would go on this again when I visit Louisville again.

We really enjoyed our cruise. Everything was perfect. The DJ was comical and played the perfect music for our tour. He described some of the areas and we learned a lot about history. We left at 7 right before sunset and came back with the bridges lit up. Perfect for photos!
