Lake Travis Yacht Rentals is the premier yacht charter and pontoon rental company on Lake Travis. We have over 15 yachts and pontoon/tritoon boats to choose from in our fleet. Looking for a great time for your bachelor, bachelorette, birthday party, or other special event – check us out at or give us a call at (512) 981-6409 to set up your yacht or pontoon boat rental today! We put you front and center of the party, because we create the party by being the largest fleet on Lake Travis! All our yachts and pontoons are very well maintained, and updated annually. Read the reviews of us and our competitors, and you will see the difference in what we deliver!

  1. BRING ICE – we do not supply it!
  2. Alcohol (liquor bottles are fine, stay away from beer bottles as they break)
  3. Food – prepared food, we do not cook on our boats! (Grills on boats attract rats and cockroaches, thus why we do not cook on our boats)
  4. Sunscreen
  5. If children under 13 are in attendance, you need to supply proper fitting life jackets.

Saturday and Sunday are the busiest days, but we also book many bachelor and bachelorette parties Wednesday, Thursday and Friday as well. Since we have come out of Covid, our business is up over 200%. You will have a great time no matter what because we are just super busy, and so are all the other boat companies.

NOOO! – we have had to ban this recently, due to people not safely riding them in congested areas of Devil’s Cove(in a no-wake zone). Inexperienced riders end up damaging the paint on the boats, then we have to charge for damages. You show up with a jetski rental in your party, your charter will end immediately. We will not let this slide due to safety concerns for our customers and the other patrons in the area.

We do not want bartenders on board our yachts due to risk of customers being over-served by another party.

As with most companies on Lake Travis, no. These are party yachts, and they drink an absorbent amount of fuel(gasoline). If you are looking to cruise all over Lake Travis, we recommend a ski boat or single deck pontoon boat.

We start booking in February through end the of October!   With Texas weather, we are lucky to have a long season!

Yes, we take care of removing the trash at the end of the charter. Be respectful of the yacht and keep it clean, put trash in the provided trash cans. Failure to keep the boat clean will result in a minimum $200 cleaning fee being charged to your card on file.

No silly string, glitter, jello shots, or red wine. These products stain the boat, and you will be charged a minimum of a $200.00 clean up fee.

Do not bring DJ equipment on board. The electrical systems on yachts will not support the amperage and wattage draw of large DJ equipment. All our yachts are equipped with very loud stereo systems and are controlled via bluetooth from your phone or tablet.

Do not bring crock pots that need to be plugged in. We run off of 12v power while out on the lake, not generator power. It’s so hot in the summer that your food will stay plenty warm in an unplugged crock pot or food tray. We do have refrigerators and coolers on board to keep items cool.

No, these boats are only rented at the scheduled times listed on the booking system.

No, we only have so many months out of the year to make our money, and these boats require a lot of upkeep, maintenance, and carrying costs to operate.

YES! 🙂   98% of the party boats do NOT come equipped with a restroom on board! ALL OUR YACHTS HAVE PRIVATE RESTROOMS! 🙂  Our pontoons DO NOT have restrooms

Yes, all passengers MUST sign a Release of Liability Waiver on the boat before departing, and the person booking the boat will have to sign a Damage Waiver that is automatically presented to them at the time of securing the booking online. If the boat is damaged, you are liable for the price of the parts, repair, plus $100.00.  If your party trashes the boat, you are subject to a $200 clean up fee, so respect our business and our property.

We recommend Uber or Lyft to our customers, and yes, they are timely and go to and from our pickup locations

Yes! All boats are supplied with life jackets for all adults. We do not have life jackets on board for children or infants, and those need to be supplied by the parent, and they need to properly fit!  All boats are supplied with a Lilly Pad and noodles for all passengers! 🙂

You will get your money back, minus the deposit. There is a lot of time that goes into prepping these yachts before a charter on a weekly basis, so we cannot afford to refund the deposit. If for some reason a charter is cancelled due to weather, if you split the deposit costs between all members of your party, you are only out roughly $15-$20 per head.

If we have lightning, heavy rains, or dangerous winds,  the captain will cancel the charter (CAPTAIN MAKES THE CALL ON WEATHER, NOT THE CUSTOMER). If there is a light sprinkle, the boat will still go out on the charter. If the weather starts out nice, then we run into in-climate weather, we will bring the boat back in early, and you will only be charged for the time you were out. Captain makes the call on the weather, not the customer!

Austin’s weather is much different than any other part of the country…for example, a large cell could be coming up from the Gulf of Mexico, and would have extremely heavy rains hit Houston. When the cell makes it’s way up to Austin, because we are in the hill county, the cell will break up and hit different parts of Austin and surrounding areas. We can get heavy rains in downtown Austin, and it will not hit Lake Travis, or vise-versa… As it passed through Austin, it many times reorganizes itself, and hammers Dallas, just as it does Houston. Even if we have a 70-90% chance of rain, it is not a gaurentee that we will get it, or it will be short bursts like what you see in Florida, and things are back to normal in 15 minutes.


Absolutely!  But you will not need them!  We supply the boats with tons of life jackets, noodles, as well as a Lilly Pad! 🙂 We do have an electric inflator available on each boat for floats, but again(to be honest), it’s a pain in the ass for you to have to inflate or deflate them at the end of your charter even with an electric pump. 😉

No, and the reasons are simple. Having a grill on board a boat is an open invitation for cockroaches to come infest the boat(cockroaches love water environments, so most marinas have cockroach issues).  60 cockroaches can live off the glue on a cereal box top for up to 6 months, so imagine what a greasy grill will supply them with… and then you have captains cooking on that same grill – you get the picture! GROSS!  Also, if the boat is infested, your personal belongings can get infested, and then you drag that home. There have been numerous instances where customers have gotten food poisoning on our competitor’s boats cooking on dirty grills, and we want no part of that. Austin is a high-tech city, where you can get just about any type of food and alcohol delivered right to your AirBnB, or hotel. You can then bring out fresh, great local food out and put it in a refrigerator on our boats. Our competitors will supply cheap burgers and buns, and why would you want to eat that when Austin is well-known for it’s great food. You can find Austin listed all over the Food Network.   To order food from around the city, we recommend mobile apps such as Favor, Uber Eats, Grub Hub, etc.  For alcohol, use Drizly.

Yes! 🙂

Shaken, Not Stirred has a 3 cubic foot refrigerator, as well as a huge 260 can plus cooler on board.

Casino Royale has 2 huge coolers on board, as well as a full-size refrigerator and freezer.

Moonraker has a 5 cubic foot refrigerator, freezer, and a huge 260 can plus cooler on board.

Yes, you can bring whatever alcohol you like on board, even liquor bottles!  Unfortunately, we cannot supply liquor, beer, wine under strict laws put in place by the Texas Alcohol and Beverage Commission. Our ship stores at the docks do carry some beer choices, and even some wine, but selections are limited and not guaranteed availability.  Most of our customers pick up alcohol ahead of time and load it in their Uber/Lyft or party bus, and some even have alcohol delivered right to their AirBnB or hotel ahead of time via Drizly mobile app.Ice you can buy right at the dock stores, so no need to lug it along on your trip out to the lake. 🙂

Yes! 🙂  99% of our charters want to go to Devil’s Cove for their party. Unlike party barges, we ARE able to anchor in Devil’s Cove and put you right in the middle of the party! 🙂

Deposits and charter amount due are non-refundable within 3 weeks of your charter. Unfortunately we have no control over the weather, and we do our best to reschedule you for another time if it works with your schedule. All of the other companies have a similar policy, if not a more expensive deposit than we do. No cancellations within 21 days of the charter. Credit card will be billed in full for charter and the captain service fee.

The captain will accept Venmo, Paypal, or cash. ABSOLUTELY NO CHECKS!  DO NOT SHORT OUR CAPTAINS!!!!  If captains are shorted, it is in the contract that we will charge you credit card the difference, plus processing fees!

Yes, all boats come with a captain! 🙂  All our captains are registered with the state as Party Boat Operators!  Make sure that the company you book with has registered captains, your safety relies on that!

No!  None of the boat rental companies supply towels. Reason being is that we would literally have a couple hundred towels to wash on a weekly basis, which would force us to raise prices significantly to you the customer.

Yes!  All our yachts have JL Audio and Polk Audio equipment on board. Each boat has 2000 watt stereo systems with subwoofers, and bluetooth connectivity. We also have usb plugins so that you can charge your phones or devices(usb cables not supplied).


All of our boats are now located at Paradise Cove Marina – 17141 Rocky Ridge Road, Austin, TX 78734

Calling or emailing us will have a delay, and you may miss out on your available booking.

Not usually, unless it’s off season. We book solid from early March through end October from Thursday-Sunday. Adjusting schedules on those days would cause cancellations, and mess up our schedule. The allotted time between the charters is for the captain to be able to get customers off the boat, the boat cleaned and ready for you to board. Other companies on the lake run their charters back to back, so while you are waiting to board, the captain is shuffling off the last party and cleaning up after them before you board, and you loose time on the water.

No, you do not have the pay the full amount for your charter to book a party boat.We do require a deposit of $300.00-$400 depending on the boat to secure your booking.The deposit is applied to your total amount due for your charter.We can bill your card up to 21 days before for the total amount. But we rarely do that, because it’s no fun carrying a big balance on your Credit Card.
