Lake Austin’s Most Popular Experiences

Sunny Austin, Texas’ outdoor experiences revolve around the water, Lake Austin in particular. Residents and visitors can book a convenient boat rental or head out on a party boat for the afternoon or evening. Paddling sports appeal to those who want to get up close and personal with nature.

Pontooning and Ski Boating
Lake Austin’s 22-mile length attracts pontoon boaters who enjoy soaking up the sunshine with family and friends. Party boating is also popular. A party boating trip is also ideal for family get-togethers along with bachelor (and bachelorette) parties.

Water skiers also gravitate to Lake Austin. The lake’s mostly straight configuration makes it easy to get on plane and stay there for several miles. Wakeboarders and kneeboarders will also enjoy this adrenaline-filled ride.

Kayaking, Canoeing, and Paddle Boarding
Kayaking, canoeing, and stand-up paddleboarding are ideal ways to explore the vibrant Austin waterfront while getting a good workout. These human-powered water activities have helped to make Austin one of the fittest United States cities.

As Lake Austin paddlers glide past lush greenery on the shore, they should keep a sharp eye out for birds and other wildlife. Paddlers will be sharing the lake with motorized boats, so staying aware of other vessels is always recommended.

Endless Fishing Expeditions
Lake Austin attracts fishing enthusiasts who enjoy trolling in the sun or stalking elusive fish in a quiet cove. Either way, fishing is a relaxing activity that attracts fans of all ages. In fact, several generations of a family can enjoy this timeless sport together.

Fishing fans without a boat can easily book a boat rental and invite family members or friends along for the ride. Although catching a few (or more) fish is the goal, conjuring up a few fish stories is also part of the experience.

Best Bodies of Water for Boating Around Lake Austin

Lake Austin

Lake Austin tops the list of Austin’s aquatic playgrounds. This 22-mile-long reservoir is a former riverboat destination favorite of pontoon boaters who laze along in Austin’s balmy sunshine. Several dock-and-dine restaurants in the area draw boaters ready for a quick bite and a cold drink.

Lake Travis

Northwest Austin features scenic Lake Travis, another popular boating destination. At 63 miles long and over four miles wide, everybody has plenty of room. During any weekend, pontoon boats, fishing boats, and houseboats ply the lake’s inviting waters. Sailboats can easily catch a good breeze here as well.

Lake Travis’ maximum 210-foot depths also beckon adventurous scuba divers. Kayaks, canoes, and stand-up paddleboards often cruise the lake’s expansive shoreline and quiet coves.

Lady Bird Lake

Downtown Austin’s Lady Bird Lake is a different kind of boating destination. No motorized boats are allowed, making this serene lake ideal for kayaking, canoeing, and stand-up paddle-boarding. Paddle-board yoga has become a favorite activity. Lady Bird Lake also draws its share of dragon boats. These sturdy 40-foot wooden vessels accommodate 20 paddlers, a standing steersperson, and a drummer. Dragon boat races are becoming increasingly popular in waterfront cities around the country.
