Welcome to the VIP Lake Travis Marina

The closest destination to Austin for boat storage and tour boat rentals

Steaks sizzle and the bass thrums from the double-decker Island Time barge as a VIP Tour Boat captain cooks. A tenant watches from the fuel dock as they fill up with the best gas deal on Lake Travis. Friends cruise on one of our 24’ Berkshire Tritoon boats and relax as they’re splashed with rays of sunlit mist.

Happy Customers

"The Ultimate Party on Lake Travis! I had an amazing experience with VIP Marina. Captain Bob and his crew exceeded all my expectations and delivered an unforgettable experience.The party barge I rented was spacious, clean, and had all the amenities you needed. The crew members on board were not only skilled at navigating the lake, but also extremely attentive to our needs. I wholeheartedly recommend VIP Marina for anyone looking to have a blast on the water!"

Dewey Dodson

"AMAZING! This was one of the best things we could have done for my daughter's 21st Birthday. Everyone was great from the first call to book, to the very last person off the boat. Our captain and crew were all so wonderful. They grilled the burgers and sausages, so everyone else could enjoy the party boat, a great job at that. They supplied the coolers, bluetooth throughout the boat and table and chairs, oh and a bathroom on the boat. One of of the biggest highlights was the water slide, it won everyone over. This is truly something you should do if you haven't! Thank you VIP Marina, we'll see you guys soon"

"VIP Marina is the best! Everyone we interacted with was pleasant, friendly, kind, and welcoming. They took great care of us on our party barge and we had an awesome time! Big shoutout to Chris for making this experience smooth, fun, and exciting for us. We'll be back and we highly recommend these guys if you're looking to get out on Lake Travis! Cheers!"

Ryan McKinney

"One of my favorite lakes to go out on. Renting a Tritoon is great with a group of friends or taking out a couple of jet skis is fun for date day! Highly recommend renting at VIP Marina Lake Travis... and Chris is great!!"

Candice Robertson

"I rented one of the big party boats for my husband's surprise 40th birthday and it was a huge success! Everyone had a great time and our group of friends want to try to make it an annual thing! The General Manager (Bill) and his entire team were so nice and helpful. They made the planning and execution so easy. I highly recommend this company!!"

Jennifer Lauzon

"Great staff, super friendly, and efficient getting you through the required boat rental paperwork and checklist. We've done both a tritoon and a speed boat based upon size of group. Always a good time and boats have performed well - includes tube and tow line."

Rick Anderson

"Rented a party barge for a group of 50+ and Dan, Kyler and Andy were incredible!! From the start Dan had us cracking up as he gave us the run down on the boat amenities and the rules. I am usually stressed at events making sure everything goes smoothly, but they did it ALL and I got to enjoy the event with everyone else!! Everyone was so thankful for them and their awesome attitude. I've rented from VIP Marina multiple times and I will always go back!"

Barbara Núñez

"I LOVE this place! I’ve rented from them twice now. Both times I was pleasantly surprised by both the boats and the staff. Andy helped us along the entire time and she was amazing! Super sweet. And very knowledgeable. I had a million questions (sorry Andy 😉) and she was able to answer everything for us. We had my kiddos with me and she made sure they had absolutely everything we needed. I’d highly recommend asking for her when you go!"
