We had 5 adults and 3 elementary aged kids for a half day cruise. Captain Tim made sure everyone in our party (age 70 to age 5) truly enjoyed the afternoon.

It was the peaceful, quiet trip that we had hoped for. Sometimes you don't know on a shared sail the atmosphere, and Captain Tim read the mood of the boat and kept the music off so we could enjoy the sound of the sails and the water. Tim had offered any type of music could be streamed aboard but we chose the quiet option.
The boat is well appointed with lots of places to hang out as a couple or a group.
We did not want the trip to end, and we would recommend it for both a "party" cruise or a quiet sail, whatever you are looking for.
Captain Tim also takes candid photos during the sail and uploads them to a private site for you to download. He captured pictures of us as a couple that were natural and spontaneous.
Definitely a great experience if you love being on a boat but don't want the responsibility.

A month ago we had our wedding on the boat! Captain Tim went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect! My wife still can't believe how beautiful everything was and what an incredible and original experience it was! Captain Tim actually performed the ceremony, and it was just perfect! I wish I could put into words how happy and grateful I am. The boat is in mint condition, the lake and the sunset views are amazing! I would definitely recommend Sail Austin and Captain Tim's services to anyone without a doubt!

I scheduled a 3-hour sunset cruise for my family with Sail Austin Charters. Captain Tim was incredibly easy to work with. He was extremely responsive, thorough, and efficient in his coordination of our sailing trip. During the sail, he and his assistant Jim were friendly, hospitable, and just generally fun to be around. The boat was extremely comfortable and well-equipped to meet various needs (e.g., seating area downstairs for those not as interested in the sailing excitement, cushions on the back of the boat for those wanting a lot of sun or a nice breeze, seating by the captain for those who enjoy hearing Captain Tim's stories). The excursion itself was exquisite and relaxing. We ended up getting a beautiful, perfectly windy day, so there was plenty of excitement as we sailed along Lake Travis! We also caught the most breathtaking sunset I have ever seen. Tim and Jim timed the pacing of the trip perfectly so we could get the best sights of the sunset. It was a truly wonderful time. I look forward to taking more visitors on a trip around Lake Travis with Sail Austin Charters!
