Whether your adventure means getting centered with a solo session on a stand up paddle board or a festive affair on a 21-foot barge, you can rent your watercraft from a pool of shops along or near Lady Bird Lake. Kayaking and canoeing are Austin’s poster summer sports, stand up paddling is now officially a bona fide movement, and who told you to stop cycling when you run out of road and rock? There are so many options for beginners and pros, with rentals offered at pretty reasonable rates (many of the shops will even give you lessons or pointers before shipping you off, and some offer formal classes and camps). We’ve made the calls and compiled the fees; all you’re required to do is shove off.
