Go Rio San Antonio River Cruises : Boat Rides San Antonio Riverwalk
Schedule
The Go Rio San Antonio Riverwalk Cruises are a great way to see the city of San Antonio. They run every 15 minutes from 9 am to 10 pm, making it easy to fit into your schedule. The best time of year to go on a riverboat cruise is in May when temperatures are perfect and the flowers are in bloom. Visitors are sure to get stunning views of the cityscape and plenty of chances for photos – not to mention an enjoyable way to spend an hour or so while visiting this beautiful town. Nothing spoils a relaxing cruise like gas-powered boats polluting the water, so they only use quiet electric boats steered by friendly captains who know how to keep everyone entertained with stories about the city's history and fun facts. Additionally, each boat can cruise up to 40 passengers at a time, making it ideal for families or groups of friends who want to explore together but don't want anything too fancy or formal.
