Lone Star Riverboat Cruises In Austin, Texas.

Featuring Austin's Newest, Most Luxurious Riverboat!!

Located on Lake Lady Bird (formally Town Lake) in Austin, TX. Lone Star Riverboat Cruises & Austin are two shining stars of Texas! Join us aboard one of our all environmentally-friendly vessels. Experience the exhilaration of the outdoors, the abundant waterfowl, our ever changing city skyline and the natural beauty that is Austin. We offer public narrated sightseeing cruises or witness the spectacular emergence of the world famous Mexican free tail bats on our sunset/bat watching cruises! Come see the sights and learn about Austin. Or jazz up your next occasion and have a private party aboard the Lone Star Riverboat, the largest all electric powered paddle wheeler in the nation.

Our staff at the Lone Star Riverboat is committed to excellent customer service and making your trips as enjoyable and relaxing as possible. We want to show you Austin in Texas-friendly style.

We are a family owned and operated city concession-meaning that a portion of our gross sales goes to support our nationally recognized park system. Mike Pearce & family have owned and operated the Lone Star Riverboat since 1987.

  • We were traveling with our dog, Juke, and made our reservation for the bat cruise before getting to Austin. Once there we were concerned he would bark too much if we left him. Lone Star’s website clearly stated the fare was not refundable but I decided to call under the circumstances. I talked to Joy who was very understanding and helpful. THANK YOU, JOY!!!
  • It was a great experience. Our tour guide/boat captain was energetic and knoweledgable about the lake, shoreline/skyline and the bats. It was cold and rainy so the bats never really came out, but we did see a few come out. I wish I had come when it was warmer but other than that it was a great time. Deffently worth it even with the cold and rain. Will do again if I am ever back in this area. Got great pictures as the captain would position the boat just for the great photo spots. πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ¦‡πŸ¦‡πŸ¦‡πŸ¦‡πŸ¦‡πŸ¦‡πŸ¦‡
