New Catered Cruises Available on Lake Granbury
Jake Maynard is the owner of Mesquite Pit restaurant on the shore of Lake Granbury. At the Mesquite Pit, you can drive or boat up and enjoy a great meal either inside or on the patio while you enjoy the lake in the background.
As the lake is just steps from the restaurant, Jake always thought about offering catered cruises right on the lake. Maynard took his idea to the city and staff of the Chamber of Commerce and Visit Granbury agreed that it was an excellent idea that fits right into the culture of this gorgeous lake town.
Kirk Grable, the owner of Kirk’s Tiki Cruises in Port Aransas was encouraged by folks at the chamber and Visit Granbury to get in contact with Jake and the two men soon had a plan to work together and offer catered cruises on the waters of Lake Granbury.
About a month ago in late April, the first cruise took to the waters of Lake Granbury. The 30-foot long pontoon boat with a thatched classic tiki hut style roof can be seen on the doc just outside of the Mesquite Pit on Pearl Street.
The boat can host up to 20 passengers in addition to the captain and crew serving the food. Family-style cruises that are fun for all ages take place at 10 am, party cruises are at 2 pm, and sunset cruises are at 7 pm. Each boat cruise lasts an hour and a half. Anyone who is interested in a catered cruise can book one through Captain Kirk’s website at captainkirkstikicruises.com. On the site is a link for the Mesquite Pit restaurant where interested cruisers can look over the available menu and place their order at the time they reserve their place on one of the catered cruises.
Cruises are a special affair with meals served using real silverware and plates and entrees coming to guests under fancy domed covers. Cruise tickets are $55 per adult and $40 per child over the age of 2. Children 2 and under cruise for free. Each meal is an additional cost in addition to the ticket price. Patrons are able to bring snacks and beverages and coolers may not be larger than 3x2 feet.
The cruise boat is also available for private rentals to enjoy a party to yourself.
Safety is also a key priority for the crew which will undergo certification and regular safety drills.
