Brazos River Historical Cruise in Waco
Cruise the Brazos river on a 2 hour historical tour. During the cruise we go in depth on the history of the Brazos and how it shaped Waco today.  Bring you cameras because there will be ample of wildlife to photo.  The boat is equipped with a hard top canopy and there is a bathroom on board.  Water and Dr. Pepper are FREE on the boat

When you board the boat you will be greeted and asked to take a seat. The 1st 5 minutes of the tour is introductions, location of bathroom and soft drinks.  The next hour of the tour is a guided historical tour where the captain cruises through downtown going in depth about the 16 different landmarks on the river.  The last hour is the "Safari" theme tour where we go into the smaller Bosque River and look at the wildlife.  You might see Blue Herons, turtles, raccoons, deer, hogs, Red Tailed Hawks.  We will pick up and drop in the same location.  We are located on the river next to the Hilton Hotel in downtown.

Amazing river cruise

We had such a good time on the waco safari river cruise with Captain Ryan. He shared many interesting historical and current event facts. The river was beautiful and ride so peaceful and relaxing. Santa Dan and Iris will be back again.
