Austin Activities for Water Lovers

Austin offers an abundance of outdoor activities, with water sports on the city’s nearby lakes at the forefront. If you’re hoping to beat the summer heat, head to Austin’s highlands, where you can play on Lake Georgetown, Lake Travis, Lake Austin, and more. While Lake Travis is certainly the biggest, at 63.75 miles long, there are around a dozen smaller lakes where you can enjoy water activities like kayaking, boating, wakeboarding, and more.

Located at the southern end of the Colorado River, Austin is perfectly situated near several reservoir lakes with stunning scenery and miles of open water. Whether you want to explore the 271 miles of shoreline around Lake Travis or enjoy one of several parks on the banks of Lake Georgetown, you have to make some time during your Austin adventure for water sports. Boating, jet skiing, and stand-up paddleboarding are all popular water activities in Austin, with many excellent tour operators to help you get out on the water.

Rent a boat and set out on your own or reserve a chartered experience with a knowledgeable captain who can help you try new water activities. Many Austin boat rentals come with water sports equipment like wakeboards, water skis, tubes, and aqua lily pads for peaceful floating. You can even play beer pong in the water on the floating pong table! No matter what you have in mind for your Austin vacation, you’ll find the perfect water activities to help you make a splash.
