Nestled between Austin and San Antonio on the Guadalupe River, Canyon Lake is a popular spot – and it’s actually known as the Water Recreation Capital of Texas and the “jewel of hill country.” With 80 miles of clear, gentle waters, it’s easy to see why. Plan a day to fish for striped bass or rainbow trout, or perhaps you just want to spend the day swimming, hiking around the lake, or tubing. Water sports and activities are naturally the mainstay of the area but there are other things to do and discover in and around Canyon Lake.

Canyon Lake Boat Rentals & Water Activities

You don’t have to own a boat to enjoy this fantastic lake. All types of watercraft are available to rent, from top of the line wakeboarding and water-skiing boats to single-person kayaks. If fishing is your thing, you can catch catfish or several kinds of bass aboard shaded fishing boats. Jet skis and waverunners are great for thrill seekers. Houseboats, canoes, inner tubes – you name it, you can find it at Canyon Lake.

Other Things to Do Near Canyon Lake

The floods of 2002 carved out the Canyon Lake Gorge below the lake’s spillway. You can witness waterfalls, marine fossils, beautiful geologic formations, and 110 million-year-old dinosaur tracks. Take a tour of the Canyon Lake Gorge – just know that it takes a little bit of forethought since only guided tours are available. The hike is three hours long and a bit strenuous, so shouldn’t be attempted if you have a health condition. It is also only open to children seven years and older. Plan your trip and book your tour here.

This Heritage Museum of the Texas Hill Country is just a few minutes from lakeside, and it’s a fantastic excursion that isn’t quite as physically intensive as the gorge tour. Sitting on almost 25 acres, the museum features over 200 dinosaur tracks on 28 different trackways. Well-versed docents lead tours throughout the day. There are also local history exhibits and plenty of fossils to see. Don’t miss the gorgeous nature trail that highlights native plants. The open-air picnic area is a great place to enjoy your lunch.

Whether you are interested in Canyon Lake boat rentals, Guadalupe River tubing, ancient geologic history or dinosaurs, the Canyon Lake area is an awesome destination. Pack your sunscreen and water gear, and be prepared to make life-long memories.

    Double-decker Tritoon with a Slide in Canyon Lake, TX!

    The boat itself is beautiful so well maintained. The added perks of the slide and upper deck was the perfect touch for relaxation and excitement. They also have a large water pad to enjoy time in the lake without treading water the whole day and so much seating perfect for a group or family it was 7 of us but there was definitely room for a more of us. Sandra made the booking process and finding the boat seamless and easy. She was very responsive. Our Captain Paul was very knowledgeable and friendly we felt secure knowing he was driving and knew the best spots. This is definitely something I will be doing again! We had a great experience!

    Tim was awesome and very attentive with the whole process of renting the boat. From making sure we got a good parking spot, to making sure we felt comfortable in the boat. I will definitely recommend him and reach out to him next time we're looking to rent a boat at Canyon Lake!

    The boat had an incident on our original booked date and Sam was really good at informing us timely and re-scheduling on really short notice. Very thankful for his help and kind attention, Capt. Colton was really nice and kind with us!

    2020 Veranda 25ft Tritoon in Canyon Lake

    Originally had booked the boat from 11a-5p. I received a phone call the day before saying weather was an issue so the reservation had to be changed to 2p-8p. Unfortunately, it began to rain at about 7p. Our trip had to be cut short due to weather. Other than that, no complaints. Communication was great, boat was in great condition, captain was knowledgeable with the lake.

    Entire family had a blast. You don't expect a pontoon boat to have such a powerful motor, but this one does and pulling a tube was crazy fun. Captain very personable, fun, and great with kids. Will definitely use again as well as recommend to friends and coworkers.

    **2021 Super Owner** Brand New 22' Sun Tracker Pontoon on Canyon Lake

    If you’re reading all these reviews and trying to figure out whether or not you want to book this one, read no further! The boat was immaculate, our captain was amazing. Knows the lake like that back of his hand. Super personable and fun to be around. And if you’re out in the water, he’ll gladly refresh your beverage so you never have to get out. We WILL be booking again.
