- Samantha S.

Me and 24 of my friends rented Joe's boat for a bachelor party. We had great time and Joe was a great host, making sure we found a solid place on the lake to park and have a good time. I highly recommend this if you're looking to accommodate a large group.

We were celebrating a bachelor party recently and joe showed us a great time on the boat and water. his style and attitude fit perfectly for a group just wanting to have fun without a ton of rules (responsible fun of course). highly recommend joe for group events looking to have a blast., lake travis yacht charters blog.

Sail Austin Charters


Private Charters on Lake Travis

Experience the beauty of lake travis on a private charter.

Private charters are exactly that…you decide when we leave and when we return. We arrange the cruise whenever you prefer. Whether it is a half or full day, sunset charter or anything in between, we are here to serve you! All charters are a minimum of two hours and can be ANY length of time over two hours. You are welcome to bring your own food & drinks or we will cater your cruise .

Romantic Cruises For The Two of You

Nothing says “Romance” like sharing an intimate evening with the quiet water, subtle breeze, and breathtaking sunset over Lake Travis. The perfect setting for an anniversary, that special announcement, a marriage proposal, or the couple that just wants a few hours to indulge their senses on an unforgettable escape from the norm….

Sunset Sails

The beauty of the sun dropping behind the Texas Hill Country is a sight that never gets old.  Take a slow cruise into the sunset and BE that sailboat that you have watched from The Oasis on the lake below!

Bachelor & Bachelorette Parties

What a great idea to enjoy celebrating the coming wedding of one of your best friends! Spend the day on the lake sailing, swimming, eating, drinking & partying. Sun, music, water & friends! Can’t beat it!!

Birthday Parties & Celebrations

Is someone you know about to turn that special age? What a great way to show the importance of the day! A cruise with your best friends or quietly together….in class.

Family Outings & Retreats

Spring Break, Thanksgiving, any family gathering where you want to bring everyone together for a unique and memorable day. Leave your phones below in the yacht and enjoy the wind, water and sun. Swim with the kids and make a memory.

Team Building

Bring your business team together to celebrate your successes. Show the staff your appreciation for their hard work in a truly tangible way. We have even had teams conduct off site meetings on the yacht! Now that is thinking outside of the box!

Nothing else inspires bonding and teamwork to quite the same extent as sailing. Success requires good communication in challenging situations, working together towards a common goal; qualities essential to every business. Team building charters allow each participant to receive personal sailing instruction, an opportunity to work the winches, steer the yacht from the helm, and learn basic navigation. We can tailor the perfect team building event for you. Our team building charters leave participants with a  revitalised  sense of collaborative purpose, receiving overwhelming praise from our clients.


When our clients want to sail, we are ready! We do sunset sails all the time. But, we also do sunrise sails and they can be beautiful! We even had a client request a sail starting at 10PM and going to 2AM. Can’t imagine? Well, he wanted to impress his date and he did. It was beautiful! We also had a group that wanted to go ahead and sail in a lovely, warm Summer rain…it was totally safe, so we did! And they loved it. Why do we do these sails? Because we love sailing and we love giving customers a unique experience they will never forget. So, just call and let us know when you want to make YOUR memory…

  • Charter Policies
  • Payment Options

* All prices reflect a 5% discount for cash. All rates include up to a maximum of eight (8) persons. Additional guests are 10% per person. The capacity of the yacht is 15 guests. For holiday pricing, call 817.909.2378.

The following policies apply to all charters with Sail Austin Charters and are, by reference, a part of your agreement with Sail Austin:

  • CHILDREN – Children under the age of thirteen must wear a life vest at all times unless they are below deck (inside the boat’s cabins) or stationary in the cockpit. This is not Texas law but the policy of Sail Austin Charters.
  • HOLD HARMLESS AGREEMENT  – All passengers are required to sign the Hold Harmless Agreement prior to departure of the boat from the dock. This document must be signed by anyone wishing to sail. If the passenger is under the age of 18, a parent or legal guardian must sign for them. Proof of guardianship is required.
  • SAFETY MEETING – All passengers must attend a brief (10 minute) safety meeting conducted on board prior to departure.
  • FINAL AUTHORITY – The Captain has final authority for decisions related to the safety of the passengers and vessel at all times during the charter.
  • RISKY PASSENGERS – The Captain has the final decision and authority to require any passenger to disembark who is considered a risk to the other passengers or vessel at any time.
  • CHARTER TERMINATION BY THE CAPTAIN – If, in the sole opinion of the Captain, anyone in the Chartering Party is behaving in a manner which poses a risk to any passenger or crew at any time during the charter, the Captain has the authority to terminate the charter immediately and without refund of any payments made and without compensation, including future charter time.
  • ASSUMED RISK – Water sports are inherently risky and all passengers acknowledge that risk in signing the Hold Harmless Agreement prior to sailing.
  • NO LIFEGUARD – No lifeguard is provided for our charters. Passengers swim at their own risk.
  • INTOXICATION – Passengers who appear in the judgment of the Captain to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs and representing a risk to themselves or others may be asked to disembark. Safety is always the determining criterion in the decisions of the Captain.
  • CHARTER SCHEDULE  – Typically, we are happy to accommodate minor changes in the schedule where possible if we are given advance notice. However, this may not be possible if there is another charter scheduled for the same day or if it affects crew scheduling to the extent that we can not get proper crew coverage for the cruise. We will try our best to make it work out for you. But, if one or more guests are simply late, that is not considered reasonable cause for delaying the start of the cruise. We can wait for them or depart and come back and pick up the guests later. But, that is considered part of the scheduled charter time.
  • CHARTER FEE PAYMENTS  – Reservations are made by providing a current credit card over the phone with our office. That credit card is our guarantee of payment for the charter. Typically, no charge is made to the card other than a $1 validation charge prior to the charter date. However, making the reservation commits the full charter fee at the time of the reservation. The actual payment for the charter is normally made either in cash or by credit card on the day of the charter.
  • CHARTER RESERVATION PROCESS  – Reservations are only made on the phone with our office. Once the reservation is made, a Google Calendar Item will be sent to your email as confirmation. That invitation has all of the details of the charter. The invitation also includes links to a 2 page Damage Agreement and to a map to your departure location. You must ACCEPT that calendar invitation by responding on line. Using the link provided, you print out the Damage Agreement, fully complete and sign it, take a picture of it with your phone, and then email or text that picture to us. We handle everything electronically.
  • CANCELLATIONS BY THE CHARTER PARTY – All charter cancellations are subject to a $200 cancellation fee. If the charter is cancelled PRIOR TO forty-five (45) days of the charter date, the charter fees are fully refundable less the cancellation fee. Cancellation within forty-five (45) days of the charter FOR ANY REASON will result in the full charter fee being forfeited. Cancellations may be made by calling Sail Austin at 817.909.2378 or by email to [email protected] . However, successful on-time delivery of the email is the responsibility of the Chartering Party. Cancellations by telephone will be confirmed by the date/time stamp if a message is left.
  • CANCELLATIONS BY SAIL AUSTIN CHARTERS  – Cancellation of a cruise at the discretion of the Captain for weather, equipment or other safety concerns will result in either the refund of all charter fees paid to date or the rescheduling of the charter. The decision for a refund or future scheduling is that of the Chartering Party. THIS DOES NOT APPLY TO CHARTERS TERMINATED BY THE CAPTAIN (see paragraph on “CHARTER TERMINATION BY THE CAPTAIN” above).

The simplest way to book and hold a charter is to use a credit card. If you ultimately wish to pay by using the card, you may do so. Or, if you wish to take advantage of the 5% cash discount, you are welcome to pay in cash on the day of the charter. The card will provide guarantee of payment for the booking.

Sail Austin reserves the right to change the payment policies at any time.

Assumption of Risk

Disclaimer : Sailing is a thrilling and rewarding experience, but it is essential to remember that it comes with inherent risks. Before taking to the open waters, that some time to understand the potential risks associated with sailing and how to mitigate them.  Assumption of risk is a legal principle that states that a person who engages in an inherently dangerous activity assumes the associated risks. This means that if a person chooses to participate in a potentially hazardous activity, such as sailing, they accept the inherent risks involved in that activity and cannot hold others liable for any resulting injuries or damages.

Every time you set sail, you are responsible for understanding the potential risks and hazards associated with the activity. This includes understanding the weather, the environment, and the safety protocols related to sailing. Be aware of the potential dangers of the boat itself, such as capsizing, running aground, or getting caught in a storm. Understanding the risks and hazards of sailing is essential to staying safe on the water. Have the proper safety equipment and knowledge to handle any situation. By taking the time to understand the risks associated with sailing, you can ensure that you and your crew have a safe and enjoyable experience on the open waters.

Spent an afternoon in Devil's Cove tied up with the Lake Travis Yacht fleet. Our crew had such an awesome time! Our Captain was really great accommodating us. We had lily pads and plenty of storage space for our use. The tritoon we rented sat 13 of our friends comfortably and it was nice having a reliable designated boat driver. Thank you for the adventure! 10/10 we will definitely be renting again!

Couldn't ask for a better experience. We had 19 girls on our trip which as you can imagine, made logistics challenging, but Lake Travis Yacht Rentals made it so easy and enjoyable to plan our day on the lake. From booking the boat, to making sure we were prepared day of- We didn't have to worry about a thing. They were on top of every detail, and our crew enjoyed the whole experience. Captain Shawn was stellar- We all felt safe and comfortable, and he went out of his way to make sure we had a great day on Lake Travis.

sailboat charter lake travis

Booked one of their large party boats with a slide for a friends birthday this past May and had a great time! A friend referred the company and Captain Jessica to me, and though she was booked herself that weekend she answered all my questions and was so helpful! Derek was our Captain that day and was awesome! He texted me a couple days prior to our trip and provided details and things to know before arriving, and was SUPER attentive. Entire time on the boat was awesome, we had so much fun and Derek made sure we had a great time. Super clean boats, very responsive, and fun people! Highly recommend Lake Travis Yacht Rentals!!

Captain Gavin on the Spectre yacht was the best! We came for a bachelorette party and he was super communicative, helpful and kind! He made sure everyone was having a great time. We were able to hook up our music and there was a large cooler provided on the boat for drinks and food. The boat was clean and and roomy for everyone (12 people).

Captain Neil was great! He took care of every detail and made the whole trip super smooth and a lot of fun. The boat was great and the lake was beautiful. Captain Neil knows all the great spots to anchor.

Cruising the Moskva River: A short guide to boat trips in Russia’s capital

sailboat charter lake travis

There’s hardly a better way to absorb Moscow’s atmosphere than on a ship sailing up and down the Moskva River. While complicated ticketing, loud music and chilling winds might dampen the anticipated fun, this checklist will help you to enjoy the scenic views and not fall into common tourist traps.

How to find the right boat?

There are plenty of boats and selecting the right one might be challenging. The size of the boat should be your main criteria.

Plenty of small boats cruise the Moskva River, and the most vivid one is this yellow Lay’s-branded boat. Everyone who has ever visited Moscow probably has seen it.

This option might leave a passenger disembarking partially deaf as the merciless Russian pop music blasts onboard. A free spirit, however, will find partying on such a vessel to be an unforgettable and authentic experience that’s almost a metaphor for life in modern Russia: too loud, and sometimes too welcoming. Tickets start at $13 (800 rubles) per person.

Bigger boats offer smoother sailing and tend to attract foreign visitors because of their distinct Soviet aura. Indeed, many of the older vessels must have seen better days. They are still afloat, however, and getting aboard is a unique ‘cultural’ experience. Sometimes the crew might offer lunch or dinner to passengers, but this option must be purchased with the ticket. Here is one such  option  offering dinner for $24 (1,490 rubles).

If you want to travel in style, consider Flotilla Radisson. These large, modern vessels are quite posh, with a cozy restaurant and an attentive crew at your service. Even though the selection of wines and food is modest, these vessels are still much better than other boats.

Surprisingly, the luxurious boats are priced rather modestly, and a single ticket goes for $17-$32 (1,100-2,000 rubles); also expect a reasonable restaurant bill on top.

How to buy tickets?

Women holding photos of ships promise huge discounts to “the young and beautiful,” and give personal invitations for river tours. They sound and look nice, but there’s a small catch: their ticket prices are usually more than those purchased online.

“We bought tickets from street hawkers for 900 rubles each, only to later discover that the other passengers bought their tickets twice as cheap!”  wrote  (in Russian) a disappointed Rostislav on a travel company website.

Nevertheless, buying from street hawkers has one considerable advantage: they personally escort you to the vessel so that you don’t waste time looking for the boat on your own.

Prices start at $13 (800 rubles) for one ride, and for an additional $6.5 (400 rubles) you can purchase an unlimited number of tours on the same boat on any given day.

Flotilla Radisson has official ticket offices at Gorky Park and Hotel Ukraine, but they’re often sold out.

Buying online is an option that might save some cash. Websites such as  this   offer considerable discounts for tickets sold online. On a busy Friday night an online purchase might be the only chance to get a ticket on a Flotilla Radisson boat.

This  website  (in Russian) offers multiple options for short river cruises in and around the city center, including offbeat options such as ‘disco cruises’ and ‘children cruises.’ This other  website  sells tickets online, but doesn’t have an English version. The interface is intuitive, however.

Buying tickets online has its bad points, however. The most common is confusing which pier you should go to and missing your river tour.

sailboat charter lake travis

“I once bought tickets online to save with the discount that the website offered,” said Igor Shvarkin from Moscow. “The pier was initially marked as ‘Park Kultury,’ but when I arrived it wasn’t easy to find my boat because there were too many there. My guests had to walk a considerable distance before I finally found the vessel that accepted my tickets purchased online,” said the man.

There are two main boarding piers in the city center:  Hotel Ukraine  and  Park Kultury . Always take note of your particular berth when buying tickets online.

Where to sit onboard?

Even on a warm day, the headwind might be chilly for passengers on deck. Make sure you have warm clothes, or that the crew has blankets ready upon request.

The glass-encased hold makes the tour much more comfortable, but not at the expense of having an enjoyable experience.

Getting off the boat requires preparation as well. Ideally, you should be able to disembark on any pier along the way. In reality, passengers never know where the boat’s captain will make the next stop. Street hawkers often tell passengers in advance where they’ll be able to disembark. If you buy tickets online then you’ll have to research it yourself.

There’s a chance that the captain won’t make any stops at all and will take you back to where the tour began, which is the case with Flotilla Radisson. The safest option is to automatically expect that you’ll return to the pier where you started.
