Each year in April four Betty Lou boats take to lakes Monona and Mendota, offering daily excursions until mid-October. Dining options aboard Betty Lou Cruises range from snacks to complete meals—scheduled cruises feature brunch, lunch, cocktails or dinner. There are also special themed sailings like a pizza and beer cruise and an all-you-can-eat ice cream social. Charters are available for groups of twenty to sixty-six with a variety of food and beverage options. Day or night, there is no better view of Madison than from the Betty Lou.
