Austin Sailboat Rentals
New sailors cut their teeth aboard Austin Sailboat Rentals' fleet of dinghy boats. It doesn't take long for the company's instructors to explain the operation of these lightweight vessels, which consist of only a single sail. Their ease of navigation lets fledgling captains and passengers focus on sailing's more enjoyable aspects: the wind in their hair as they take the view of downtown Austin from Lady Bird Lake. And unlike Mr. Peanut, Austin Sailboat Rentals isn’t defined by its name; the company also rents out other recreational vessels including seacycles, kayaks, larger day sailors, stand-up paddle boards, canoes, and bikes.
