sunday, sept 17
As a thank you to the Austin community, join Rowing Dock for our second free-to-the-public Paddlepalooza on Sunday, Sept 17. From open to close, Rowing Dock will provide one hour of FREE kayaking, canoeing, and stand-up paddle boarding to community members on a first come, first serve basis (no advance registration required). Following the first free hour, customers who are interested in staying out longer will be charged at regular rental rates. Any extra time is charged upon your return in half-hour increments.
All experience levels are welcome, whether you're a paddling pro or you're never been paddling. The Paddlepalooza will run from 9am - 8pm. Last boat out is at 7pm, but we recommend arriving by 6:30pm to ensure you're able to get on the water in time!
READY TO GET ON THE WATER?
Our rentals are on a first come, first serve basis (don’t worry, we have a ton of them). All you have to do is show up at our dock in Zilker Park. Bring a valid photo ID, credit card, and fill out a rental waiver at the dock. Pick your boat, put on a life jacket and hit the water.Find Us
What to bring
We require each of these before you hit the water, no exceptions – but keep in mind our dock doesn’t have secured storage for additional items.
