The Sainte Genevieve, a 149-passenger sternwheel riverboat, provides 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 views of the picturesque riverside.

Come aboard and enjoy an ever-changing variety of food offerings from some of our favorite local markets and restaurants. Enjoy a full bar on every cruise and occasional live music, not to mention the best views of the Illinois River!

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