Are the boats safe?

Our boats are absolutely safe. The ship safety division of Texas Parks and Wildlife (TPWD) approves both boats. This means they had to meet stringent requirements in the design and construction of the vessels. They are subject to ongoing inspections by TPWD officials. They must be crewed by qualified personnel who have been certified as Captains or crew members. As well, they must maintain or exceed standards of safety equipment and fire fighting equipment required by TPWD and the Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA). These boats are approved as passenger vessels and sport a sticker for the public to sight, which ensures that it complies with all regulation set forth by TPWD. Whenever you are inquiring about the safety of a vessel carrying passengers, this is the only way to ensure that they are in compliance. Before the boats leave the dock, the crew will conduct a safety briefing which outlines the safety features of the vessel, what to do in case of an emergency, an introduction of the crew and their qualifications as well as an outline of the course and activities planned for the voyage. Plus, the crew are always intermingling with customers and always have the opportunity to share information about the lake, the vessels, the community, history, wild life, even real estate prices which are all common inquiries from our guests.
