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 Tuesday, 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 are teaming up with the YETI Flagship store this year to bring you a pre-cruise happy hour and insider discounts on YETI products! Join us at the Flagship store located close to the dock (220 S Congress Ave) from 5:30 - 6:30PM for a complimentary beer/wine or non-alcoholic beverage when showing your ticket confirmation. Guests that show their Bat Cruise confirmation will also receive discounts on merchanidse! You are welcome to pick-up your purchases at the store the next day to avoid bringing them aboard the cruise.Here are the details for the cruise, now that the sun is setting early the times have moved up:
- Boarding starts at 6:30 p.m. We’ll cruise from 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
- House DJ laying down the best beats around!
- Lite Bites from Local Favorites on every cruise!
- Spirits courtesy of our favorite local wineries, breweries and distilleries - beverages vary for each trip
