WACO, TX — Portions of the Waco Riverwalk are still closed, but summer activities are back on the water as the level of the Brazos River starts to go down.

David Ridley is the co-founder of Waco Tours. He said they had to cancel river tours for the last three weeks due to all the rain.

On Friday, Ridley and his team decided it was safe to start offering the tour once again.

He said they opened the tour back up at 11a.m. and by noon, Friday and Saturday were completely sold out.

"It brings them into a different part of the Texas history. There's different stories on the river cruise than we have on our classic van tour, so we love having another option," Ridley said. "We love having different options for people to do different things while they're here in our city so they enjoy it and want to come back."

Ridley said they only have a few spots left for this week.

"We've run four now since it opened back up for us. People are loving it," Ridley said. "Our captains and drivers are super excited because they've been chomping at the bit to get back on the water."
