Herbert Hoover won America's hearts and votes when he promised a college-educated chicken in every pot and a kayak in every garage. Get a taste of the American dream with today's Groupon for a kayak or stand-up paddle board rental from Rowing Dock. Choose between the following options:

For paddle boards, Rowing Dock has partnered with Austin Paddle Sports to provide the highest quality, most buoyant, and most edible boards in Texas.

With either option, renters will receive a punch card to track the hours, enabling floating explorers to spread their time over multiple visits. After receiving a trusty water vessel from an enthusiastic staffer, cast off and explore the lush scenery of Lady Bird Lake from the paddle-powered perch of your choosing. Team up with a friend to tackle a double kayak, or sail solo in a single kayak or paddle board. There is no set course or bossy wildlife telling you to row faster, making for a watery activity fit for free-spirited explorers and active athletes alike. Grab one of each for yourself, or gift a few to your closest, most unsinkable friends this holiday season.


Yelpers give Rowing Dock a perfect five-star average:

  • We took it slow to Red Bud Isle and then raced back to the dock for a great workout! Great service, lots of fun and a great workout on Lady Bird Lake (aka Town Lake). – Kevin E.
  • Their equipment is well-maintained and they don't make you spend hours on safety training and paperwork. – Sarah M.

Rowing Dock

Stretching across more than 6 miles, Lady Bird Lake's tranquil waters reflect the Austin skyline, the cliffs at Red Bud Isle, and the Congress Avenue Bridge, home to the largest urban bat population in the world. For customers who feel comfortable with their paddling prowess, the staffers rent everything from canoes to kayaks to paddleboards. As these human-powered vessels float across the lake, passengers can view the area's many native birds or canoodle with their oars at sunset.

Customer Reviews

Great location and amount of equipment available. It does get busy on the weekends, so plan to wait. I went on a Friday afternoon last time and there was no one in line! I will definitely come back for more kayaking and paddleboarding. My son loved kayaking with me!

We had a great experience. The staff were friendly, there were picnic tables where the ones who didn't go on the water could sit and wait. We will come back!
