Tour Boat Options & Pricing

Island Time

Who said you couldn’t go on a cruise in Texas? Island Time is the Jamaican-themed, island-hopping double-decker tour boat with a six-foot swim platform and second-floor waterslide. Island Time can comfortably accommodate up to 50 guests.

Stars & Stripes

A favorite for the Fourth of July or Memorial Day holiday, the patriotic Stars & Stripes can easily accommodate a party size of up to almost 50 guests. There’s nothing more American than a beer-and-barbecue Saturday on Lake Travis’s finest red, white, and blue tour boat.

Tequila Sunrise

The Tequila Sunrise is a fan favorite, with room for up to 50 guests to really get down. This gorgeous vessel has everything you need to host a stellar event on Lake Travis: a super-fast second-story slide, grill ready to simmer, and a fully flushable private lavatory. Be the life of the lake in this sunset-colored tour boat.

Big Tex

Everything’s bigger in Texas, and it’s not an Austin-area lake party without Big Tex. With its size, Big Tex has plenty of room for up to 50 of your guests to enjoy some loud and proud Lone Star State pride.

Bahama Mama

We can’t actually take you to the Bahamas, but we can give you the next best thing. Bahama Mama is plenty spacious and with its clean, aquamarine deck aesthetic, provides a fun atmosphere for a large party. Enjoy music, hit the slide, and relax for a few hours like you just landed at Grand Bahama.


Off-Duty is our newest tour boat, and a tribute to the United States Military. This is the perfect 50-guest tour boat to celebrate your next special event, holiday, or get together with friends and family.

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!"
