Alas, there are a few more things to know before you paddle.

Pedal Kayak Rentals FAQ

How is a pedal kayak different than a regular kayak rental?

Pedal kayaks are part of our specialty rental fleet. These boats provide customers with a fun and fast ride by using your legs to move instead of your arms to paddle.

Are pedal kayaks safe?

Pedal kayaks are safe and easy to use for people of all skill sets.

Do you have to be a certain height to rent a pedal kayak?

We recommend that renters are 5 ft tall or more in order to safely use a pedal kayak.

Is a reservation required to rent a pedal kayak?

No, at this time - you can rent pedal kayaks by walking up. We are not taking reservations.

What is the longest time I can be on the water in a pedal kayak?

At this time, you can rent a pedal kayak for as long as you desire. Due to our limited quantity, we want to ensure as many people have the opportunity to experience our pedal kayaks as possible - therefore we do not have an all-day rate.

Can kids rent pedal kayaks?

We do not recommend pedal kayaks for kids under 5 ft tall.

Are dogs allowed on pedal kayaks?

Unfortunately, dogs are not allowed on pedal kayaks.Dogs and other pets are permitted on single/double kayaks, canoes and SUPs. Please note, given the history of poisonous toxins found in the blue-green algae in Lady Bird Lake, if you decide to bring your pet, you are doing so at your own risk. While there were no toxins found in the latest sampling of the algae (Oct, 2020), the City of Austin is still recommending that all pet owners do not let their pets/dogs swim or drink the water in Lady Bird Lake.All pet owners will be asked to sign a pet waiver that details the history of the algae and the current status. For reference, our pet waiver is here.To learn more about the history of toxic algae in Lady Bird Lake, please visit: austintexas.gov/algae

How many people can fit in a pedal kayak?

Pedal kayaks can only accomodate one person. If you would like to paddle with a partner, we recommend a double kayak or a canoe.
