The ship is quite out dated inside , the 2 employees were very nice though. The AC was very weak & actually went out twice during he hour cruise. It got very hot. There's not really much to see in that short time frame but they were informative about everything on shore. Very low key . 👍

The boat and staff were fine. Using Groupon was simple and quick. The ride itself is short and you don't go far. It's nice to see the Austin skyline....once.

Our family enjoyed our sight seeing cruise. The generator went out and the captain made sure that we still had a nice finish. He was able to keep us entertained while going downstairs to tend to the other guests as well. I will definitely be going back for the night cruises.

Awesome time. Captain Chris was pretty fun. Def would recommend going when it's cooler than 85 degrees.

Very good family activity! My 6-year-old and 4-year-old like it. The view is great. The boat looks cool. The captain talks nicely and funny. It is educational too. My son sat next to the speaker and listened. The volume of speakers is kind of low though.

We were well informed, Chris was funny so we were entertained throughout. Kids enjoyed. We would definitely go again and well worth the money spent.

From Our Editors

Emblazoned with patriotic red, white, and blue, Lone Star Riverboat's vessels churn through Lady Bird Lake, floating alongside towering cypress trees and the city's skyline. Meanwhile, the captain's booming voice narrates each tour.

However, the company's aquatic excursions aren't just restricted to sightseeing. Their largest ship, The Lone Star, boasts two decks and a 150-person capacity. Aboard the ship, DJs spin tunes and caterers serve barbecue for special events such as weddings. On Friday nights, patrons board The Lone Star for moonlight cruises, taking in scenic views of the Austin skyline.

Lone Star Riverboat's enthusiasm for the water extends to environmental preservation. According to its website, the company owns the largest all-electric paddle wheeler in the country. It also donates a portion of its gross sales to the Austin area's park system and provides after-school activities for at-risk fish.
