Stop At: Lake Austin, Texas, USA

This scenic 22-mile public lake known for its clear, constant-level water features privately owned waterfront and cliffside homes, several shoreside restaurants, is home to world champion wake surfers Ashley Kidd and Raleigh Hager & just a 20 minute drive from downtown Austin.

Duration: 2 hours

Pass By: Pennybacker Bridge, Austin, TX

This steel arched bridge built in 1982 is an iconic Austin landmark. Spanning the distance of Lake Austin (1,150 ft long), it connects the North & South sections of the Capital of Texas Highway. The bridge's arched design was created to avoid having support columns that would otherwise interfere with water skiers, wake surfers and boaters on the 22 miles of water below.

Pass By: Emma Long Metropolitan Park, 1600 City Park Road, Austin, TX 78730

This municipal park on the shores of Lake Austin is well-known for its camping, fishing, hiking, picnic & swimming amenities, but also for its notoriety as a 5-mile mountain biking and motorcycle trail. Named after the first woman to serve as Mayor Pro Tem in Austin in 1967, Emma Long Park continues to be a long-standing favorite of locals and visitors alike.

This private golf club is located on the banks of Lake Austin. It features a challenging 18-hole course and hosts tournaments, including the popular WGC Dell Match Play. It was designed by architect Pete Dye and is home to gold legend Harvey Penick.

Pass By: Tom Miller Dam, Austin, TX 78746, USA

This dam, named after a former Mayor of Austin, began operation in 1940. It was constructed for the purpose of flood control & hydroelectric power generation. On its upstream side is Lake Austin and on its downstream side Lady Bird Lake. Both reservoirs are a result of the dam's construction.

Pass By: Mount Bonnell, 3800 Bonnell Dr, Austin, TX 78731-5846

This beautiful 5-acre park is located almost 800 feet over Lake Austin. The cliffs of Mount Bonnell provide a vista for viewing not only the lake from atop, but the expansive hills surrounding Austin.

  • Reynaldo is the best captain! My husband and I took the lake tour a couple of weeks ago and I returned this weekend with my mom for another great afternoon on the lake !!!

  • Reynaldo was a fabulous guide! Perfect day! He was very accommodating, on time, and an expert captain and very knowledgeable about the area. Will rebook with him specifically !

  • Ronaldo was so lit he was very accommodating, great captain and great vibe. Pretty views and a good lake to swim in!

  • Our family, no teens, just my grown children, had a blast cruising with Elijah. Since there was a really good Bluetooth speaker on board, we were able to listen to my son’s music. What fun it was to stop at a lakeside bar and have Margaritas mid-cruise!
    Elijah was so pleasant and courteous. We will ask for him on our next cruise!
    Thanks Elijah!
