One River - Two Boats

Belle of Lou_logo__Belle (1)

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 of her size in American history.

Belle of Lou_logo__Mary (1)

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.
