ADA Accessibility – River Tour

All of our Narrated River Tour boarding locations are ADA accessible.

Rio San Antonio Cruises is committed to serving people of all abilities and creating a memorable experience of the San Antonio River Walk. We strive to provide a reasonable accommodation for accessible seating, companion seating, handrails, access ramps, and written tour information for any guest who requires it.

In our daily tour operation, we can accommodate two wheelchairs on each barge. Boarding ramps are available at each tour boarding location. Wheelchair seating is located conveniently on the boarding deck adjacent to the passenger boarding area.

Many of our riders with mobility impairments choose to transfer into seats and sit with companions/family members. Barge drivers reserve the seats closest to the boarding area and make reasonable accommodation on a case-by-case basis. If a passenger prefers to remain in a wheelchair, a chair can be placed next to them.

Persons with visual impairments may request preferred seating. This service features a narrated tour.

Persons with hearing impairments are provided with a written tour script with photos of the points of interest. If someone with a hearing impairment would prefer contracting an interpreter, that can be arranged directly through Deaf Interpreter Service, Inc. at

The City of San Antonio keeps maps of accessible routes throughout the River Walk area with walkway routes and construction projects.
