Each boat has different capacities. Our boats range from 12 passengers to up to 32 when booking a dual boat. Check out our boats and pricing page for more info.

Unfortunately not. There are locations along the Lake that we can stop off if anyone needs to use the bathroom.

We do not allow any towing, wakeboarding, tubing, etc behind any of our boats at this time. Lake Austin is very crowded and can be quite dangerous. Sorry.
