The Houseboat-Yacht stays anchored in a cove this vessel is not a charter we do not take guests on a cruise around Lake Travis with this vessel. You and your group will be picked up by a pontoon and/or Bayliner Cierra Cruiser from the dock at Mansfield Dam Park and provided a boat tour to the cove where the Houseboat-Yacht is located and then another boat tour on the way back.
Our shuttle tour starts off by going from one end of Mansfield Dam to the other end you will be approximately 15 feet away from the dam and being up so close the view of the dam is spectacular. From the dam we go by Sometimes Island, the Oasis Restaurant, Hippy Hollow, Windy Point, then heading to our cove we pass by limestone cliffs, a bird sanctuary, Waterloo Adventures, and Lake Travis Zipline watching people zipping across, then head to the Houseboat. We provide a similar shuttle tour on the way back to the pickup location. We call this the Dam Eco Shuttle Tour which takes approximately 30 minutes each direction, on request we can shorten or extend the time of the shuttle tour. We have another nearby location for pickups and drop-offs that guests can also canoe or kayak from and will take about 10-15 minutes this may be a better alternative if access is needed to get to your vehicle.
There is $5 per person parking fee at our pickup location. The shuttle service is included in the price. If you overnight and need additional shuttle service its $50 between 10am-6pm or $100 outside of these hours. If you have your own boat it can be tied off to the houseboat. Check with us on availability and pricing if interested to rent a pontoon.
