  • Willamette Queen
    Passengers on the Willamette Queen board the 87-foot sternwheeler at Riverfront Park in Salem and take a journey into the 19th century, an era when paddle steamers plied the waters of the Willamette. Wedding parties, birthdays, and company outings of up to 90 people climb aboard for gourmet dinners and lunches, dancing to live music on the solid oak floor, or sipping cocktails at the full service bar. Passengers gaze at the beauty of the river's tree-lined banks, play poker like an old-timey riverboat gambler, or watch a beautiful turtle wedding happening on the water.
