Kayak Rental FAQ
Are Kayaks Safe?
Kayaking in Austin is safe for people of all skill levels, including beginners. We use high quality equipment that’s well maintained, and our rowing experts can help you select the kayak that’s best suited for your adventure on Lady Bird Lake.
Do I Need to Wear a Lifejacket While Kayaking in Austin?
Anyone under 13 years old will be required to wear a lifejacket, and it’s highly recommended for everyone else. But don’t worry, we have lifejackets in all sizes that are free to use with your rental.

They sure can! We also have specialty paddle boards for people who bring their pooches.

Nope. We mainly operate on a first come, first served basis. On the weekends during the middle of the day there may be a short wait, but you can always enjoy beautiful Zilker Park while we get your kayak ready.
