My 12 and 15 yr old kids attended the Beginner Sailing Camp at Lake Travis this summer. Of course it was the only week it rained all summer. The instructors are college-aged former sailing students but the owners are on-site at all times. Both kids enjoyed the days full of activities and look forward to more sailing in the future....

I am from Austin and have always loved coming to Bob Wentz park. I was so excited to see Austin sailboat rentals there! They made a day on the lake so easy and enjoyable. We simply parked our car and walked to the boat ramp. They bring the boats to you and when we were done, we just pulled the... More

From the moment we arrived, this family owned and operated business was very inviting and made us feel at ease, relaxed, and comfortable during our private sailing lesson...being first-time sailors :)

The forecast called for an unusually warm day, so on a whim we rented a Hobie Islander. It was a ton of fun. The new location is great, and the selection of boats is perfect for the area.

My husband and I traveled to Austin to spend the weekend for Valentines Day. He really wanted to go fishing, but we had never been before. We looked up Lake Travis and made our way over there. We had no idea where we were going and stumbled upon two different parks around the lake that didn't really appeal to us.... More

The weather report said it was going to be a beautiful sailing day and the only beautiful day straddled by rainy weather for 4 days fore and aft. My friend from Colorado had asked me to set up some sailing while she was in town, and I had, but oh no! the staff at the other place dropped the ball.... More

On a whim, I looked up "sailboat rental" on Google and found Austin Sailboat Rentals. It was getting later in the day and so I rushed out to Windy Point and called ASR on the way. They quickly set me up with the boat I wanted and within an hour I was on the water. I highly recommend Austin Sailboat... More

The on-line rental was great, Since we live an hour away, we rented more than three hours ahead of time, so we knew we would have a boat available when we arrived. This was our first time to rent here. As the day progressed, we noticed a lot more variety in the watercraft that could be rented than what we... More

We live here in Austin and I have to rave about these folks. My 10 year old daughter just finished two weeks of sailing camp with Austin Sailboat Rentals. She started with never having been in a sailboat to finishing as an intermediate sailor by the end of the second week. Ginny was really fantastic with all the kids, and... More

It was loads of fun when I rented from Austin Sailboat Rentals. I enjoyed the experience not only because it provides great activities, but also because the people at the rental location were very nice and welcoming. They provided all I needed to have as much fun as possible. They have way more than just a typical sailboat, like a... More
