Lynchburg Ferry - Review

The Lynchburg Ferry is a historic ferry ride that is in many ways a must do in Houston. It was the oldest ferry to have run in Houston and while it has seen many ups and downs it continues to run between Lynchburg and Houston Ship Channel.

The ferry service is run for free by the Harris Institution. The Ross S. Sterling and the William P. Hobby are the two ships that are still used to sail. While on the ride you can also see the San Jacinto Monument and Battleship Texas which are wonderful historic sites worth a visit.

If you want to try out something historic as well as fun at the same time go for a ride on the Lynchburg Ferry.

Lynchburg Ferry, Houston Reviews

  • depending on traffic, it could be anywhere from 5 to 30minute wait. ride itself is very short (

  • Saves a little time on travel. I was located in very front. My vehicle was splashed entirely with salty water. Had to immediately go and wash.

  • Great view of the channel, ships and businesses in that area. This was our Sunday evening ride from Pasadena. Lots of fun and enjoyment.

  • short but to the point..Nothing like Galveston..P.S. you can't get out your car

  • Great way to get to the battleship and was free.
