Not lone star riverboats fault but the bats were a disappointment. I understand it is nature and wild animals but I was expecting to see a sky filled with bats. Maybe they should start a half hour later so you are out there longer. The cruise was nice peaceful and the captain was nice. The lake is full of garbage unfortunately. Next time tomorrow night I will take my chances from the shore
