Scenic Wilderness Cruise
(Runs @ Lake Level 1010 and above March – Oct.)


View the scenic beauty of the Colorado River Canyon along our 22 mile route. Enjoy visions of waterfalls, towering cliffs, abundant native Texas wildlife, world-class birding and many scenic vistas along the river banks.


Scenic Lake Buchanan Cruise
(Runs when Lake Levels are between 1005 – 1010)


Lake Buchanan is the largest lake in Texas and is home to a myriad of water fowl and birds of all kinds. The cruise will pass by Garrett Island, the largest uninhabited island on the lake. It is a wildlife sanctuary for migratory birds such as the blue heron, white egrets and particularly 2 birds of prey, the osprey and the American Bald Eagle.


Fall Foliage Cruise (Runs @ Lake Levels 1010 and above Sept. – Nov.)


Gradually, each leafy tree and plant surrenders its green mantle to the bright yellows and crimsons that signal the end of the summer and the start of fall. Add to that the cooler temperatures and the splendid colors of a new season and you have an especially ideal time of year to travel.

In general fall conditions there are so many photo ops that your challenge will simply be deciding what to shoot.  In addition to the foliage this is the time of year when the wildlife goes into feeding frenzy to fatten up for winter.  Migrating birds are attracted to the area as the food up North is mostly gone, but down here birds can fill up one more time for the rest of their southward journey.  Both song birds and raptors migrate through this area to the lakes and rivers to feed on fish.
