For a truly memorable historic experience during your Galveston visit be sure to book a cruise aboard the Colonel Paddlewheel Boat, the authentic replica of an 1800s-style paddlewheel that provides weekend sightseeing and evening dinner cruises outside of Moody Gardens.
Explore the Offatts Bayou with an hour-long weekend cruise in which you will 'live the high life', your group able to lavish in the ships plush carpeting, elegant draperies, colorful lighting, and uniformed staff who are ready to help you. Enjoy the open-air promenade or one of the two elegant dining rooms, the Texas and Galveston Rooms. When offered, the dinner cruises take place from 7 pm to 9 pm, boarding begins at 6 pm.
Note: Your group should be here to board 30 minutes prior to your sail time regardless of which cruise you are choosing to take. You should also note that all cruises are weather and wind permitting and Moody Gardens will inform guests of the conditions ahead of time.
