Full description

Admire the incredible natural beauty of Lake Austin on a guided cruise. Enjoy an affordable way to experience the lake with other passengers, without renting an entire boat. As you cruise around the 22-mile shoreline of the lake, you'll see elaborate privately-owned waterfront and cliffside homes, and popular shoreside restaurants.

Take social media-worthy pictures of Lake Austin's unique clear, constant-level water and its beautiful scenery, like the iconic Pennybacker Bridge and Little Italy.

You may even catch sight of Austin's own professional wake-surfing celebrities, Ashley Kidd and Raleigh Hager! This activity is ideal for individual travelers, couples, and small groups or families.
