Public Holiday Cruises

Annual Valentine’s Day, Easter Sunday and Mother’s Day Lunch Cruises

Just twice a year, we host special public cruises with catered meals from the Hyatt Regency Hotel for Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day. This is the only time of year in which we host a public cruise with catering on the flagship of our fleet, the Pride & Joy II. Call for pricing and booking information.

Celebrate Valentine’s Day on Lady Bird Lake, enjoy an evening catered cruise and views of Austin’s skyline. Dinner and drinks are served on the boat’s climate controlled lower level to ensure you and your Valentine have an enjoyable evening.

For those looking for the ideal venue from which to watch the fireworks on the Fourth of July, call Capital Cruises for special holiday pricing. All of our vessels can be reserved for the occasion, so however large your group size may be, we have a boat to accommodate you. Public cruises to see the fireworks open up two weeks prior to July 4th and are subject to vessel availability.
