THE BAT BOAT
- Duration: 120 Minutes (approx.)
- Location: Austin, TX
- Product code: PENLZU
While most people just grab a spot on the bridge, there’s actually an even better way to watch the bats!
We’ve partnered with Capital Cruises to bring you Bat Cruise-days, a party cruise on Town Lake (or Lady Bird Lake as it’s now known). Enjoy great music, food, and cocktails aboard a fabulous boat with air conditioning, bathrooms, and a gorgeous roof deck. We’ll pause near the bridge (and turn the music down) at sunset to watch the bats and tell you a little bit about them!
We're excited to offer our guests two pre-cruise specials this year! We'll have a $5 local canned beer special at our check-in location: The Hyatt Regency Austin and our guests have have access to a special YETI promotion: Receive a free drink at the YETI Barr when you spend $20 or more on YETI products the day of your Bat Boat (must show them your confirmation email)!
Check-in will be at the The Hyatt Regency Austin (208 Barton Springs Rd, Austin, TX 78704) at the Hyatt Bat, beginning at 5:30pm. Guests must check-in with the ATC guide at the Hyatt Regency Austin bar. Guests may start boarding the boat at 5:50PM. The boat will leave the dock at 6:00PM and return at 8:00PM.
