Water sports galore
During the warmer months of the year, Lake Travis is especially popular for water sports, including fishing, swimming, paddling, jet-skiing, pontoon boating and even scuba diving, with all sorts of wrecks, forests of sunken pecan trees, walls and grottoes to explore with visibility averaging eight to 10 feet.
If you don’t have your own vessel for getting out on the water, the marina nearby offers boat rentals, private yacht charters for celebrations and romantic excursion, as well as a party barge that is ideal for groups of friends or even corporate trips and team building.
But it also offers lots on land, including big thrills like ziplining. Lake Travis Zipline Adventures offers options for thrill-seekers of all ages, including its ‘World Class Tour’, which features five ziplines, with the last three considered the fastest and longest in the Lone Star State.
Soak up the stunning views
It’s not only a great way to get your heart-pounding, but to take in amazing views of the glistening water and beautiful rugged canyons.
The total package
The three-hour adventure includes a short boat ride, the five ziplines that range from 250-feet to more than 2,800-feet-long, as well as a full-day pass at Lake Travis Zipline Adventures’ own private lakefront park for swimming, playing games, picnicking or relaxing in one of the hammocks as you enjoy the view.
Fun for the whole family
