Sainte Genevieve Riverboat

Sainte Genevieve Riverboat

The Sainte Genevieve, a 149-passenger sternwheel riverboat, provides daily tours of the scenic waterways of Starved Rock Country.

Guests will depart from downtown Ottawa and cruise between Buffalo Rock and the Marseilles lock and dam to take in the picturesque riverside views.

Step aboard to enjoy dinner cruises featuring small plates from favorite local restaurants, a robust cocktail bar, and occasional live music. Not to mention the best views of the Illinois River.

The boat will be docked at the end of Albin Stevens Dr. in downtown Ottawa, serving as an unmatched venue for get-togethers or private events.

Book a Cruise

All cruises are equipped with a fully stocked bar that accepts cash or credit card. Food is served during our Dinner Cruise, or available upon request for private events.
