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.

Would highly recommend booking with Chris! It was a great first-time experience and we thoroughly enjoyed our outing, as well as the charter services offered. Chris was very insightful and ensured we were comfortable along the ride and during water sport actvities. His boat was clean, spacious, and very well cared for. This definitely won't be our last time booking with him!

Had a great time for my brothers Bachelor weekend. If you’re looking to have a stress free event on Canyon Lake, Sandra and Capitan David are the ones you’re looking for. The boat was awesome, pretty much brand new!
This was the BEST BOAT DAY EVER! Mr. Brent took us out and showed us the world on a boat and we had the time of our lives. He took us to party cove and we had an amazing time. he provided a swim pad and flotation devices and cute fun little stuff to make the boat experience complete. We had so much fun we added TWO extra hours and got to see the sunset. It was a group of 8 girls and he took us out and treated us like family. WE WILL BE BACK! Don't hesitate to book with him, you wont be disappointed.

Tod was an amazing captain! He will DJ or let’s you be the DJ. Sound system is perfect! He’s very alert to everything happening around us and keeps our safety in mind at all times. I could not ask for a better captain. Thank you Brandon and Tod!
The boat was clean and operated perfectly. Tim versed us on operating the boat and where all the essentials were. Then sent us off ready for a wonderful time on the lake. 5 Stars from me and my family
