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 where it’s like Lake Havasu – 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 two boats is that one can hold up to 17 people and one can hold up to 24 people.

A couple weeks ago, the New York Times wrote an article on vacation rentals in Austin. One of the underlined URLs in the article told us something we already knew: we are the original and #1 bachelor party planning service in Austin!
The URL “popular bachelor party destination” in the article at http://www.nytimes.com/2015/10/10/your-money/new-worry-for-home-buyers-a-party-house-next-door.html?_r=0 links to sparkparties.com! The author didn’t link anywhere else because he probably knew other operations weren’t legit or had limited activities/knowledge that they offer.
We couldn’t be more proud of the quality work we do in planning the best bachelor party for each group – this is proven by the latest reviews on Yelp: http://yelp.com/biz/spark-bachelor-parties-austin. We now have another review mentioning the “best weekend of my life”. 🙂
To the next 5 years and beyond!
Email on April 18, 2015: “Just want to tell you that the boat trip was a huge success. Weather turned out to be better than predicted and overall it was a great experience for everyone. The captain and the bartender were great people and super accommodating. Thanks for the recommendations and for planning the event the way you did.” – Diego from DC
