All of our barges are ADA accessible for enjoying tours, taxis and charters.

Experience the New GO RIO Boats

With the quiet hum of their electric, eco-friendly engines, experience our fleet of 43 brand new barges in one of five new colors without the diesel fumes or engine noise of the past. New seating arrangements are not only more comfortable, but offer more views of the beautiful River Walk and greater flexibility for charters. And just wait until you see our highly anticipated, special themed barges.
