The Southern Empress

Built in 1983 in a Mississippi shipyard, the 131-foot paddle-wheeler was cut into sections, then transported by 27 semi trucks to the captive waters of Lake Conroe, at Seven Coves. There the craft was reassembled and finishing touches were added. It was then launched as one of the lake’s most recognizable icons.

The Southern Empress has been featured in many blogs and magazines. The Empress hosts private and public cruises year round; from the annual Fourth of July cruise to company Christmas parties.
