Yes, you read that right. It says “Bat Cruise.”
Did you know that Austin, TX is home to the largest urban bat colony in the world? The Congress Bridge, located next to the Hyatt Regency, our host hotel, houses these gentle and sophisticated creatures known as Mexican free-tailed bats. They migrate each spring from central Mexico and return to Mexico in early Fall. Every summer night, as many as 1.5 million bats fly out from under the bridge to feast on pesky mosquitoes and agricultural pests.
Join us to watch this most unusual and fascinating tourist attraction from the Colorado River! The 2-hour cruise will depart from the dock at the Hyatt Regency Austin at 7pm on Wednesday, June 3. Enjoy music, beverages, bat-watching, and relaxing with your fellow attendees and speakers.
