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.

  • I ride the ferry when I'm not pressed for time and enjoy the short boat ride. There have been some nice improvements after they made post hurricane Harvey repairs. They have also marked the parking lines on the boats well which helps line up the cars better, safer and faster. Sometimes there is a long wait when the tankers are crossing or when traffic overflows from hwy 225 or I-10 on the other side.

  • It's always a Wonderful Surprise for Family and Friends. But it's a Fantastic Adventure Especially for Kids, because there's Three Beautiful Parks each with their Own Signature Landscape View. First is The San Jacinto Monument with many Fun things to do, including an Elevator to ride to the Top near the Star of Texas. Second is The Historical Battle Ship of Texas with Daily Tours with Fun Facts throughout the Battle Ship. Third is The Hispanic Heroes park where you can take a Load off you Feet and watch the Children play or just enjoy the Breeze and watch the Ships pass by. And if you get Hungry, across the street is a Fabulous Seafood Restaurant ready to Serve you and your Family with a Welcoming Smile. Enjoy and Safe Travels. Adios.

  • Rode it because of traffic on I-10, but it still was fun. Long line though, again probably because of traffic.

  • Run one ferry during 5 pm wow that’s genius 🤬🤬

  • Fast , quick and free way to save many miles. You can feel the history there. So happy the have kept it simple and free.
