Grand Victoria II Whistle 

Listen to the whistle of the Grand Victoria II MP 3

Here is a special recording Capt. Don Sanders sent us - the Grand Victoria II greets the Delta Queen as she passes by, and the Delta Queen's whistle is answering: MP 3 

The Grand Victoria II had been built as a fine paddlewheel riverboat in a time where casino boats still had to cruise while their guest were gambling. So the Grand Victoria II also has a beautiful whistle she still blows as of today when towboats or steamboats like the Delta Queen, American Queen, Mississippi Queen or Belle of Louisville are passing by.

When listening to the whistle recording you might recognized that steamy puff-puff - that is from the Belle of Louisville from steam exhaust pipes. The recording was made from aboard the Belle of Louisville when passing the Grand Victoria II on her way to Tall Stacks 2006.
