Certified captains retrieve groups of up to four from the docks and welcome them aboard a boat. Passengers choose whether to relax and take in sights of riverfront architecture as their captain navigates Lake Austin's waters or jump on water skis, kneeboards, wakeboards, or tubes (available for rental at an additional fee). Guests can bring along snacks and beverages, and extra patrons can join the group for $25 each.
Lone Star Aquatics
Though Jacob and Justin's business has evolved over the years, it has stayed centered on a single goal—helping people fulfill a lifelong dream. Jacob's love of cars led him to a career in high-end detail work, but it wasn't until he started renting luxury vehicles that he found his true passion and calling. He saw the happiness that spread across his customers' head-mounted emoticon displays as they strapped into a Ferrari and unleashed a 500-horsepower engine. He soon stopped doing detail work and founded Lone Star Exotics to focus exclusively on creating dream-fulfilling experiences with rare and high-end vehicles.
As business grew, it seemed only natural to extend the quest for adventure to the water, which is where Lone Star Aquatics—a branch of Lone Star Exotics—sends its customers. "I'm an engine guy. Whether it's cars or boats," Jacob says. Keeping with his main goal, the branch's certified captains work to bring the thrills and windblown hairstyle of luxury-boat ownership to everyone. Aboard Four Winns ski boats, the captains pilot groups across Lake Austin's scenic waters. The lake’s consistent flow takes boats past sights of tree-lined banks and riverfront architecture. The vessels can also tow wakeboards, water skis, and four-person inner tubes as they wind through the aquatic playground.
