Betsy Ann Riverboat
From the time you board the Betsy Ann Riverboat until the time you step off the boat, we promise you an experience that creates memories to last a lifetime. Come aboard… close your eyes… listen to the paddle slapping the water in perfect time… and let your mind wander! There is no better way to enjoy the beautiful waters and scenery of historic Biloxi Bay than on a true old-fashioned paddle wheel boat. Whether younger or older, you imagine a bygone era – when paddle wheelers were the modern marvel of their time – the days of Mark Twain. Come learn the history of the Betsy Ann, Mississippi Gulf Coast, Barrier Islands, and more. Come enjoy the peacefulness of just being on the water. See lots of playful dolphins and watch the brown pelican flying in formation just inches above the water or diving from the air to catch a fish. You can even come up in the pilot house with the captain, steer the boat, and get your picture taken with the huge wheel. The lower enclosed cabin is heated and cooled for year-round comfort. Enjoy sights and sounds on the covered open-air upper deck. The Betsy Ann is Coast Guard certified to carry 150 passengers plus crew. We are docked between The Golden Nugget and Margaritaville.
