Captain Ryan entertained us with Waco history, current events, and facts about the Brazos. He brought blankets to keep us warm and beverages were provided. The boat was clean and in good repair. A fun way to spend time learning about Waco!

I was expecting more for what we paid. I enjoyed the commentary at the beginning but that didn’t last very long and the ride felt rather long. I think if it was only an hour and half the price I would have enjoyed it much...More
