“A cruise aboard the iconic Waimarie Paddle Steamer is undoubtedly one of the most authentic ways to experience Whanganui River’s scenery and history. Salvaged from the bottom of the Whanganui River where she sat for around 50 years, the Waimarie Paddle Steamer (previously known as PS Waimarie) was restored to her former glory and re-launched in 2000 to make her New Zealand’s only authentic coal-fired paddle steamer in operation. Today, we can but dream of the hustle and bustle of the trading settlers and iwi who knew the Waimarie Paddle Steamer of old. Instead we can enjoy her resurrection with a leisurely river cruise more fitting to her stately grace. Loved by adults and children alike, a scheduled or private charter cruise on the Waimarie Paddle Steamer offers a unique view of Wanganui.”
