The most popular activities for bachelor and bachelorette parties from March to October are boat parties on Lake Travis. NOTE: all the boats can go to Devil’s Cove, which is the most established party area in the Austin-area lakes!

FAQs on boat parties:

  1. Is February too early to go out on the lake?
  2. How far in advance do Saturday parties sell out?
  3. What is peak time to be on the lake?
  4. Why not Lake Austin since it’s closer to downtown and cheaper?
  5. What’s the difference between the double deck boat with a slide and the yacht?
  6. What’s the difference between the standard double decker and upgraded double decker?

These six questions are the most common questions we get about Lake Travis. We sell out every Saturday from late March to late September and yes, February is too early to go out there if you’re looking for a party scene.

Saturdays do sell out 8-12 weeks in advance so don’t wait until February to book an April party!

The peak time on the lake on a Saturday or Sunday is anytime between Noon and 8pm. Yes 8pm since it doesn’t get dark until then. We had a ton of parties go out last Summer around 4pm or 5pm and have a blast since it’s hard for locals to go out the night before, logistically get everyone 45 minutes outside of downtown, AND actually have food and drinks in hand before 3pm. Plus, people are the most drunk in the late afternoon/early evening so any hour from Noon to 8pm will have crowds.

Lake Austin is more like a river (the Texas-Colorado river in fact) and is more for jetskis and wakeboards. Lake Austin IS NOT the party lake – it is more for water sports so if you choose Lake Austin, you will miss out on the big party in Devil’s Cove on Lake Travis.

The main difference between the double decker with the slide and the yacht is that it is all outdoors and has a slide. The yacht has an indoor portion with a bedroom, nicer bathroom, living room, and mini kitchen (and no slide).

The only real difference between Standard Double Deck boats and Upgraded ones is that the Upgraded ones are about 5 years newer than the Standard ones. Once you get to Devil’s Cove and it’s a loud party, it doesn’t matter what boat you’re on so we recommend the Standard ones and if those are sold out, book an Upgraded one.
