Rules & Guidelines

There’s no doubt in our minds you’ll love your experience on Lady Bird Lake! That said, to ensure you get the most of your canoe, kayak, or paddleboard rental, we ask that you familiarize yourself with the rules below.

Our rental rates are by the hour. We collect payment for the first hour up front, and any extra time is charged upon your return and in half hour increments.

All participants must review the Safety Rules posted at the dock.

Regular rentals are first come, first served. See the Group Rentals for more information regarding special event reservations.

All ages are welcome. We have something for everyone.

Children under the age of 13 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian on the water. Additional age restrictions apply for stand up paddle board (SUP) rentals.
 Minors 8-15 years of age may SUP only if a parent is on the water and will be next to the minor for the duration of the rental.

Minors 16 and up may paddle board without a parent on the water with them but are required to have their parent sign our rental waiver.

Minors age 13-17 may kayak or canoe without a parent being on the water, but must have a parent or legal guardian sign the rental waiver.

Rentals stop one hour before close.

Return no later than our closing time to avoid late fees.

Participants are financially responsible for lost or damaged equipment

What to Bring

Rule number one, obviously, is to have fun. Alas, there are a few more things to know before you paddle.
