Total Eclipse Boating Experience
August 21st – Smithville Lake
Experience this rare phenomenon on the waters of scenic Smithville Lake
This package is an all-inclusive eclipse boating experience that will give participants unrivaled views of this once-in-a-lifetime event! Boaters can rest assured that they will have nothing to worry about during their time on the water; an experienced driver will be provided for each boat.
A packed lunch will be prepared for each event participant.
There are only two boats available for this event (24’ pontoons) with nine available spots each. You don’t need nine people to reserve a spot on a boat, but be prepared to make new friends, as spots will not be wasted!
