It was a great evening. We took a small cooler and had wine & cheese. LOVELY way to watch the bats. The crew was delightful!!

My husband and I had a wonderful time. The food was delicious and the fact that we got to be alone on the boat was a huge plus. It was great to have the stereo as we brought our IPOD and got to listen to music with dinner and cruising around. To see the bats from the water was super neat also. We will be going back for sure.

The CC folks did a wonderful job; we had a little glitch during our boat ride, and they called afterwards and were more than gracious and professional, and rectified the situation. I have recommended them to several friends- including a friend planning a wedding- since then.

Fun and great boat trip. Kind of hard to steer the boat since the boat is kind of old.

The gentleman that helped make my reservations ( Josh?) was wonderful. He explained all of the details very well and was very professional and helpful. When I stopped by to check out the boat before my party, he walked me thru the boat and answered all of my questions. He was open to me using some decorations on the boat and asked how I wanted the tables/chairs arranged for the party. Very helpful, customer focused, and knowledgable. The evening of our cruise, the Captains 2 were nice but didn't seem to care much about impressing the customers as far as interacting. I felt safe with their driving skills, but they seemed very checked out regarding the customers. We had a great time regardless

Me and my wife had a blast on our boat date from Capital Cruises. The food catered from the Hyatt was delicious! And we were able to bring our own small ice chest with beer on board and were also able to connect our iPhone to the stereo which let us set the mood we were in. Even though it was extremely cold outside, Capital Cruises provided a space heater and the boat also had adjustable windows that allowed us to open and close them as we got cold or wanted a closer look at the water. My wife was surprised and definitely enjoyed the experience. It was very romantic and laid back. We will definitely be doing this again when visiting Austin. Thanks guys for an AMAZING experience

From Our Editors

Each night, about a half-hour before sunset, one of Capital Cruises' double-decker boats launches out onto Lady Bird Lake. Austin's skyline peeks its head over the tree-lined banks as the vessel floats toward the Congress Avenue Bridge. Once there, passengers watch the sun drop below the horizon and paint a streak of burnt orange across the sky in an action that seems to bring the bridge to life. Here, at one of the largest urban bat colonies on the continent, thousands of bats take flight and soar into the sky.

These bat tours are just one way Capital Cruises explores Lady Bird Lake. The crown jewel of its fleet, a 75-foot yacht, sets the stage for floating wedding parties and specialty cruises such as the Riverboat Gambler. During these trips, passengers play roulette and nibble fajitas, pasta, and barbecue catered by the Hyatt Regency hotel. Additionally, Capital Cruises' staff lets customers chart their own adventures with rentals of standup paddleboards, swan-shaped pedal boats, and 21-foot electric Duffy boats.
