The choice is up to you, and we ensure each person is outfitted with the perfect boat for their adventure!
Off the Beaten Path
Founded in 1999, Rowing dock is a hidden treasure in Austin, TX. Originally developed for sculling, the dock evolved into Austin's favorite location for paddle sport rentals. Flanked by the Zilker Nature Preserve and just up the road from the city's beloved Barton Springs Pool, Rowing Dock is at once in the heart of Austin and off the beaten path. With top-quality equipment and a welcoming staff, Rowing Dock is a pristine space cherished by kayakers, SUP paddlers, and canoers of all skill levels.
