About VIP Marina on Lake Travis

Our Story

The VIP Marina at Lake Travis is a premier powerboat facility with 140 covered slips and a selection of non-covered, located on Lake Travis just 22 miles from the heart of Austin. Local resident Austin Cameron owns and operates the VIP Marina at Lake Travis, firmly believing that boat ownership and/or chartering should be an incredible experience from start to finish.

Enter the term “VIP.”

To us, the simple acronym spells out everything about how we treat our VIP Marina members and guests. From the moment you arrive until you leave, we strive to offer an unparalleled experience. In practical terms, this looks like:

  • Golf cart valet service, from your vehicle to the docks. Give us a call once you arrive, and we’ll be there.
  • The best gas price on Lake Travis for 89-unleaded gasoline.
  • A fully-stocked 1800-square-foot ship store, with Texas-brewed beers from three area breweries and everything you need for your day in the sun.
  • Some of the widest 100% concrete dock walkways and fingers on Lake Travis.
  • A standard of luxurious excellence for our charter/rental fleet, each inspected, cleaned, staffed, and equipped with no additional fees.

Meet Austin Cameron

Austin Cameron, Owner, VIP Lake Travis Marina

Hi, my name is Austin Cameron, the owner of VIP Marina. Having loved lakes and boating as a kid, it’s always been my dream to own a marina. Once I discovered VIP Marina, I fell in love. In November 2009, I decided I had to buy it, and I’ve kept my boat here since. I had the rare chance to make the marina of my dreams, and I hope that you’ll find it to your liking as well.

With my experience running successful businesses in Texas, I felt that this marina had the potential to become a world-class marina. I’ve renovated the place with the goal of turning it into a truly amazing marina for truly amazing guests. We’ve reached that goal and continue to strive.

I’ve always found in my other business dealings that if you treat people right, they’ll come back and bring their friends, and that’s exactly what’s happened here at VIP Marina. We know our VIP Marina members by name and they know us by name, and they know their neighbors by name. We promote a great sense of dock neighborliness, and the sense of warm community I grew up with lives on here at VIP.

To me, this marina is more than just the parts and people. It’s about the connections and relationships between the people, and even between the people and our wonderful lake. Life is all about connections, and I hope you’ll give us a chance to demonstrate that fact by visiting VIP Marina and seeing just how seriously we take our commitment to you.

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"

V “Ms. V-MaMa” Coleman

"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!"
