Located in the heart of the City and just minutes from Downtown, Lake Austin offers 22 miles of great sightseeing views, including privately-owned waterfront and cliffside homes & communities, popular shoreside restaurants featuring local flavors and many public parks. Unique to Lake Austin is its clear, constant-level water and intimate setting, making for the most beautiful scenery for pictures. You may even catch sight of Austin's own professional wake surfing phenoms Ashley Kidd and Raleigh Hager! Reserve the boat for up to 10 people for 2 hours & enjoy fun times on the lake! Whether you’re looking to celebrate an upcoming wedding, a graduation, birthday or just want some quality family time - this is the perfect option for you and your group.

We came for spring break and I’m grad we did this on our visit to Austin. Family loved it and Captain Jim was very friendly and knowledgeable about the sites we saw during the private tour of Lake Austin. Great service and was worth it.

We had a group of 8 and had Jessica as our guide. She handled that boat like a champ and had tons of information. It was a fantastic two hours. Weather was perfect. We wished we would have had our suits to jump in or float on the raft.

I recently did a tour with Lake Austin Friends and it was so cool. Our captain was Ronaldo, great guy. He share information about the lake, properties,
Restaurants and activities going on around the lake. He was kind and let us hook up our phones, so we could party with our favorite music. We also stop and jump in the lake and it was fantastic. The nature and the site seen is incredible, I recommend this for the whole family. Big plus, they provide water, sodas and you can bring the fun stuff for adults. In summary... Just do it !
