Welcome aboard Betty Lou Cruises, your gateway to aquatic adventure. Explore Madison’s rich history with a knowledgeable local Captain. We’ll be moored at the Mariner’s Inn on Lake Mendota waiting to show you miles of beautiful shoreline. From Bozho the monster of Lake Mendota, to a variety of iconic landmarks – you’ll see the secrets beneath the waves.
Enjoy the Captain’s favorite treats, and savor the scenery only an isthmus could create.
