My recent trip on the Lone Star Riverboat was interesting and fun! I'd recommend going when it's not 100 degrees like it was when my Mom and I went. There are two levels; you can sit in the lower enclosed level to avoid the heat. There's a reasonably priced cash bar for soda and water. I'll go on the riverboat again in the Fall.

This is a decent ride that only goes maybe a 1/2 mile past its dock each way. We didn't receive parking directions and the top deck is pretty hot with no cover. Our guide was engaging and funny and kept it lively. Probably wouldn't pay more than $10/adult in the future. This is a one time experience in Austin.

Parking is not too bad if you loop under the bridge to the park area's free parking (2hr limit).

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.
