Lone Star Riverboat




Docked right in downtown Austin, the Lone Star Riverboat offers soon-to-be-wed couples with a truly unrivaled location for their wedding day. Available for private charter year-round, Austin’s newest and most luxurious double-decked, paddle-wheel riverboat provides a unique setting for saying your “I do’s.” At 75 feet long and 16 feet wide, the Lone Star takes the golf as the largest all-electric paddle-wheeler in the United States. Whether you hope to charter for an intimate group of your closest friends and family or for a medium-sized crowd, the Lone Star Riverboat can accommodate! Imagine exchanging your vows and joining lives with your beloved on the upper deck, an open and spacious area that overlooks the surrounding waters. This outdoor space is also perfect for dinner and dancing beneath the stars. After sharing your first kiss as spouses, you can also retreat to the lower cabin for an indoor experience during the colder months.
