FAq? boat Rentals in Austin, Texas

3 AMIGOS boat rental FAq

If you would like to take your group out on the water on your own, you will need to:

  • Have an up to date Boater’s License and present it at the time of booking
  • Have a valid Driver’s License
  • Be 25 years of age or older

Self-captained trips are only available Monday – Thursday. No weekends. No holidays.

To keep our seating area as clean as possible for all of our guests we don’t allow pets on the boat.

There is no smoking or vaping allowed within the seating area on the boat. If you step out onto the back or front of the boat, however, you are more than welcome to.

We realize that life happens. Because we have multiple trips scheduled throughout the day, though, we have to run a tight ship (pun intended).

We’ll do our best shift your trip as long as there is no one scheduled behind you. There will be, however, an additional $25 for each half hour that you’re late to make sure that we take care of our captains.

Currently we are not equipped to tow anything behind our boats.

Check back with us soon, however, because it’s near on the horizon!

For our Lake Travis guests, we launch directly from 3 Amigos, located at 8910 Lime Creek Rd, Volente, Tx 78641.

Our boats are a little scared of the dark, so we try to have them tucked in before nightfall.

You are responsible for any damages caused to the boat by you or your other passengers.

If you need to cancel or update your reservation please do so over the phone or through email. Please review our full cancellation policy below.

I certainly wish we could control the weather. Since we can’t, we don’t expect you to either. In case of bad weather, and we can’t get you out on the water you will receive either a partial or full refund.

Say we’ve been on the water for the majority of your booking, at this point you would receive a partial refund. The partial refund would consist of the remaining hours you have left scheduled in your booking.

If there happens to be thunder and lightning at the time of your booking, and we are unable to safely get you out on the water, you will be refunded in full.

A 20% Gratuity is required when booking.

Each boat comes with it’s very own lilly pad, noodles, and life jackets for your floatation needs, bluetooth radio so you can enjoy your favorite tunes, and our friendly staff to help you with anything you need out on the water.

Certainly not! If you don’t want to lug your own coolers around, we’ll do it for you. We can provide a 152qt cooler with, ice included: $25 per cooler.

Glass can be dangerous out on the water, so we recommend you stick to cans and plastic for the day.

As of right now, we do not have any available transportation to-and-from our locations, however we can pick you up at private dock. Any pick up past Arkansas Bend is required to book a 5hr minimum trip due to transportation time!

We can take you anywhere on the lake! Generally we take you to a party cove on Lake Travis called ‘Devil’s Cove’.

Our location is approximately 35 minutes from downtown Austin.

There is not a restroom available on our boats, but we can certainly take you to a convenient store on the water that is less than 5 minutes away from the party cove.

Please note that once you have booked with us it means that we have reserved time in our schedule exclusively for you. If you cancel your trip before it is scheduled to take place, you may be subject to a penalty/fee. Please review below. 

A full refund will be granted within 48hrs or when you made your reservation. Any cancellation after 48 hour grace period will be subject to a partial refund. 

  • Full refund if more that 7 days prior to reservation date.
  • 50% refund up to 4 days prior to reservation date.
  • 20% refund up to 2 days prior to reservation date.

If 3 Amigos Boat Rentals cancels a trip due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances, the customers will receive a full or partial refund for the trip can be rescheduled, subject to availability. If the trip is cut short, the customer is subject to partial refund which is determined by 3 Amigos Boat Rentals. (determined by percentage of time spent on the lake) We do not go by predicted weather.
