Sunday 4th March 2018. Rollin' On The River with Rick Steele.
Depart 2:00 pm. Return 5:00 pm.

Every Paddle Steamer has it own legend and Rick Steele is ours. An inductee of the WAM Hall of Fame, Rick is actually the son of a preacher man and started his musical career singing in the church choir where his father preached. At 12 years of age Rick bought his first guitar for eight pounds after raising the money working at a local shop and the rest as they say is history…..
