Of course, Lake Austin is always the same level, but Lake Travis is looking better and better every day after so many years without a drop of water to be found.
Since the weather is gorgeous and the temperature just keeps getting hotter, we thought you might like to know the boating options on Lake Austin and Lake Travis in case you are itching to get out on the lake and don’t have the water transportation you need to speed across the lake while letting the wind whip through your hair!!
Rental businesses on both lakes offer a large selection of pontoons, ski boats, wakeboard boats, paddle boards, party barges, yachts, tritoons, cruises and even the driver so you don’t have to know how to handle a boat!!
There is something for everyone, so explore your options and enjoy our beautiful lakes in the Austin area!
