Vanishing Texas River Cruise

Vanishing Texas River Cruise by Canyon of the Eagles is the premier ecological cruise of Texas. Departing from Lake Buchanan in the Central Texas Hill Country, cruises provide groups with spectacular views of Lake Buchanan, the Colorado River, native Texas wildlife, and waterfalls, not to mention world-class bird watching and and sights of wintering Bald Eagles. A special history cruise reveals the secrets that have been hidden beneath the lake since 1937. As the waters recede, the old town of Bluffton rises with the general store, grist mill, and cotton gin; this is just one possible field trip destination. Enjoy the sights, learn about local ecology, and view spectacular bald eagles.
