Willamette Queen

200 Water Street North East
Salem, OR 97301

503-371-1103

Life returns to the Willamette River where once sternwheelers were the main mode of transportation. Sternwheeler Excursions Inc. will operate the 87 foot, 86 ton, twin paddle-wheeler year-round from Riverfront Park in downtown Salem.

The "Willamette Queen" was designed as a scaled down likeness of the former Mississippi and Yukon Territory Riverboats with paddles that really do propel her. Built in Newport, Oregon, in 1990, she has a Coast Guard approved capacity of 90. She features a full service bar and a solid oak dance floor which is located on the upper deck in the main dining room. Charter all or part of the "Willamette Queen" for your special occasion!
