What's Happening at Rowing Dock

There are no upcoming events at this time.

Rowing Dock has everything you need to enjoy a day of paddle boarding, canoeing and kayaking in Austin. Come on down to our dock, just west of Zilker Park, and let us help you choose the watercraft rental that is right for you. At Rowing Dock our mission is to make Lady Bird Lake activities available to everyone, and to provide all an outstanding experience.

Our Dock, located on the south shore of Lady Bird Lake, just west of Zilker Park, is the ideal location for kayaking, canoeing and paddle boarding in Austin. You can head westward on Lady Bird Lake to explore the quiet beauty of the West End and circle around Red Bud Isle. Or you can paddle east to cruise through the Barton Creek inlet and take in the cityscape of downtown Austin.

Looking for something to do out on Town Lake Austin? Paddle boarding, canoeing and kayaking in Austin is even more fun when we’re hosting a happening. See what special events are on the schedule at the Rowing Dock!

In addition to our affordable rates, you can also take advantage of specials including a weekday Military Discount, Yappy Hour, and College Day that make getting a kayak, paddle board or canoe rental in Austin even cheaper! Check out our FAQ page for more details about these specials. 


Given the rapidly evolving climate of COVID-19 and the information we have read regarding the importance of social distancing and “flattening the curve”, we have made the decision to temporarily close Rowing Dock. We will remain closed until we believe it is safe for the public and our employees to re-open. Please check our website and social media pages for the latest information on our position and closure. 

As a service-based business, it is our responsibility to serve you. During this challenging time, it is clear that serving you means doing our part to aid in preventing the further spread of COVID-19. The CDC has recommended cancelling events of 50 people or more. Since our business often has more than 50 customers at one time, we made the decision that it would be socially irresponsible to remain open. Your heath and the health of our employees is our highest priority. 

We feel extremely grateful to be a part of Austin’s small business community and are counting down the days until we can reopen our doors and get everyone back out in the sunshine and on the water! Please email info@rowingdock.com if you have any questions or concerns. 

To brighter days ahead, 

Love the Rowing Dock Family
