Boats are decorated with lights and holiday bling and include a driver, an iPod loaded with popular Christmas music and binders with music lyrics.  

Normally, each boat can accommodate a maximum of 16 adults or if you have 12 or more youth, under the age of 12, the max capacity of the boat is 20 people – During Covid -19 restrictions, the City of San Antonio is limiting  our event to 10 on each boat, regardless of age, and requiring that all participants wear masks. We will update if that restriction changes. 

Caroling boats book quickly. Book early to secure your preferred date and time. Six caroling boats are slated for each of the time slots above. Larger groups may book multiple boats during the same time slot as available.

Other types of festive holiday music such as mariachis, bell-ringers, and bands are also welcome to book a caroling boat.
