In a word, classic. This elegant boat was built as a Great Lakes Steamship replica, and all 76 feet have been tastefully decorated with the perfect blend of varnished woods, wrought iron, polished brass and plush upholstery. When you need to impress the most discerning of guests, The Oriole delivers! This beauty boasts comfortable dining space with Chiavari chairs, warmly lit by traditional  coach lamps, features large picture windows and an oak stool bar. Two stunning wrought iron staircases lead to the canopied upper deck where your guests can enjoy the fresh air while romancing the skyline from the comfort of one of many benches.

By day, the Oriole hosts Mariposa Cruises bustling sightseeing tours, and in the evening, it is a favourite for mid-sized events and celebrations.  Groups of 50 to 80 are comfortably hosted on The Oriole. Smaller and larger groups can be accommodated easily with flexibility to the floor plan and type of food service. The main deck features the bar, buffet and dining space. Restrooms are on the lower level. The outer deck is partially canopied, with the desired uncovered deck space available.

The highlight of cruising is the ability to move about, from indoor to outdoor (fresh air!) space, all while enjoying Mariposa’s award winning service. This is the Oriole experience. Welcome Aboard!
