Gateway Arch Riverboat Cruises
The most popular cruise in St. Louis? Hands down the One-Hour Sightseeing ‘journey back in time’, the classic cruise offered to guests that show them what it was like in a time in which steamboats ruled the Mississippi, the entire cruise narrated by the captain or local National Park Service Ranger. This cruise ‘highlights the history of St. Louis and the mighty river’s role today’, explaining all surrounding history, wildlife, and architecture along the way. Another popular option is the Skyline Dinner Cruise, perfectly magical with the setting sun, lively jazz music, and delicious hot buffet included. Your group may enjoy a private charter or specialty history cruise aboard the historic Becky Thatcher or Tom Sawyer even more, though, jam-packed with interesting and immersive history!
Each cruise takes place in season from March to November, and each will immerse you in the experience with captain talks, steam engine horns, and souvenir photos. Groups of 20 or more will receive discounted group rates, and if your group chooses the one-hour sightseeing cruise and docks by the arch hungry, head to the dockside Arch View Cafe for a quick and delicious lunch! This is a truly excellent way to see the famous Gateway Arch and Mighty Mississippi all at the same time, so don’t miss out!
