A great evening on the Brazos! - Absolutely fantastic experience! We took a riverboat cruise and had an amazing time. The scenery gliding by from the water was beautiful, but what really made the trip were Captain Ed and first mate Goose. They were both a lot of fun and kept the atmosphere lively.

Fun & relaxing sunset cruise - The cruise experience was so much fun! We were introduced to a few other families on the boat with us. We learned a lot of info about Waco & Baylor University. The surroundings were beautiful & they even had blankets for when it got a bit chilly after the sun went down. The boat has lights & speakers for music being played as we rode around on the river. Captain Matt & first mate Goose kept us entertained the whole time with stories & history. Our whole family enjoyed our time cruising & our 2 teenagers even said it was their favorite thing we did in Waco. Would definitely recommend
