Lone Star Riverboat
Take a tour with Lone Star Riverboat down the Colorado River (known as Town Lake in the Austin city limits) on a paddle wheel boat. This Southern style of transportation is a perfect way to take in the city's skyline. Trips are 90 minutes long and do not require reservations. Call ahead to determine the seasonal schedule. During the summer moonlight cruises are offered, as well as close-up cruises of the bats underneath Congress bridge. Prices vary by excursion, so check their website for further information.
It was a good experience, kids still talk about it, and a great way to see bats and learn about them. If you're just adults, it's not your first time, or just want pictures of the bats, you might be better off watching from the bridge for free. Plus, bear in mind you're *below* the bats as they come out to feed - that's not rain you'll feel. 2 adults and 2 kids under 10 was $34 but you get a brief tour of the river prior at sunset/dusk before the bats come out.
Beautiful cruise of Town Lake, awesome Bat wathing. Friendly and knowagable staff. Very informative narration. Perfect for the entire family. Best entertainment value. Took two adults and two kids for $26.00. Vist anytime between March-October. I understand the best bat watching is in the summer months.
My husband and I held a small wedding reception on the riverboat this October. The atmosphere was wonderful. There was sufficient shade and it was open so we had a very nice breeze. There was only 32 people in attendance, but I think we could have been comfortable with quite a few more. The ride is very smooth, I didn't even notice when we turned around or came to a stop. The staff was wonderful and helpful. They are willling to provide catering; however, we found it cheaper to bring in a outside caterer, even with the fee. Overall we, and our guests, had a wonderful experience, and we would definantly recommend the Lone Star Riverboat.
