It’s your turn to be the party planner this year, and you have every intention of throwing the best party Lake Travis and the surrounding Austin/Houston/Abilene areas have ever seen. Our staff at VIP Marina know just how you feel and how to make it happen for you. This ‘Party Barge Guide’ was created with you in mind!

Why book your event at a banquet hall or boring hotel when you can party on the water? Party barges are the perfect venue for all types of celebrations, from graduations and family reunions to corporate parties on the water.

It’s the most unique and flexible party platform available with unprecedented value, and will leave you the star party planner of the year! Party barges are spaciously sized for up to 90 party-goers with a 20’x50’ double deck and fun themes like the Island Time Jamaican, Tequila Sunrise, and the patriotic Stars and Stripes. Reservations are required so once you have tallied up your guest list, call us at (512)331-5375 to make the reservation.

Once you have reserved your themed VIP Marina Party Barge, it’s time to invite guests and provide suggestions of items they would like to bring. These items can include swimsuits and sunglasses, flip flops or water shoes, sunscreen and a change of clothes.

What To Bring on Your Barge

Other items you may want to bring are; plenty of food and drinks, music equipment and decorations, additional coolers and of course ice. If anyone has forgotten items, no worries! We have a fully stocked ship store on Lake Travis on site to pick up those essentials.
