Great communication from initial enquiry until
day of the trip.
We booked a 4 hour day trip for our daughter’s 21st birthday with a cooler, with ice and water, and brought our own champagne and lunch.
William was the perfect captain. Amenable and chatty, but not interfering, and let us work out how we wanted to use the 4 Hours and planned the trip around that.
We fished (and caught a small bass), swam, had lunch plus saw most of the lake area.
A really enjoyable time and would highly recommend Float On!

We had a great trip. We rented a tritoon/pontoon boat for three hours on Lake Travis. Alex was a great captain. He pointed out sites along the lake and took us to swim in Devil’s Cove. The boat rental comes with a Lily Pad that makes it easy to have an “island” when you swim in deep water. It was nice to have a captain and not worry about driving the boat. Their website was also by far the best and most user friendly. Boat was in great shape and seemed new. Highly recommend.

We did a trip with 10 girls for a bachelorette party and Phil was absolutely amazing! We had the best time linking up on Lake Austin, blasting music and he acted as a personal bartender. He was above and beyond nice and a great time. 15/10 would highly recommend!!

After several strike-outs with other lake rafting and boating businesses, the universe guided us to Float On and Captain Doug. Our group of 7 had a fantastic experience. So much so that we re-booked for a second go-around two days later!

Jason was seriously the best! We weren’t very prepared and added the ice and cooler package last minute and then asked to add the towel package upon arrival. He got all of us girls loaded and to the marina shop to make sure we were good to go. We also requested another marina stop for some extras mid trip and he had no problem taking us back and waiting for the girls to finish doing whatever it was we were doing (12 girls makes for an extended break)

He was so fun and SO helpful, making sure all our drinks were full, getting in and out of the boat, offered the cliff jumping experience, and so much more. All with a smile and laughing right along with us. Float On was truly one of the easiest and friendliest companies I’ve worked with in such a long time, from the people who answer the phone, the shop workers and of course the captain. I would recommend going through them a thousand times over and if we ever make it back to Austin we will absolutely use them again!!

We had a great time on Lake Travis with Phil. He knew all of the good spots to take us and made our trip enjoyable even though the weather wasn’t so great. This was our second time going out with float on and we will definitely use them again when we are back in Austin. I highly recommend them!

We rented a pontoon for the afternoon to allow cousins ages 10-25 to spend time together. We included a Captain and a cooler with ice and water. Arrival was a breeze and they brought a cart so we did not have to carry our belongings down the dock. Captain Derrick was awesome with the kids and made sure we had everything we needed. The lillypad is a huge plus! We decided to extend our time another hour at the end of our cruise with no issues. Kudos to Float On and Derrick for a perfect afternoon.

If you are thinking of a day on the lake, this is the company you need to go with. Professional and on time, nice new boats, knowledgeable and fun captain - everything you want for a perfect day on the lake. We’ve used Float On multiple times and each time has been a fantastic experience. We’ll be booking again!

My daughter & I planned a weekend getaway in Austin and the Ski Shores Ferry was the perfect fit for the two of us. Captain Rob was very knowledgeable about showing us the points of interest on Lake Austin and provided us with some local places in Austin for us to visit. When we come back with a larger group we will definitely be doing a boat rental through Float On!

Thank you so much for your review! We are so happy to hear you had a great time, especially with captain Rob. The Ski Shores shuttle has been a blast this summer! Take Care and hope to see you again soon!

We celebrated our daughter's 37th BD with family. We had a fantastic afternoon/evening. Driver, Robert Fagg, was very professional and made sure we were making great memories. Thank you Robert and thank you so much Float-On, David.
