View of Lake Carolyn near Olympus Las Colinas in Irving, Texas



Living in the Olympus Las Colinas luxury apartment community comes with many perks, but one of the best is its proximity to Lake Carolyn. There is nothing as peaceful as listening to water lapping at the shore of a lake, or better yet, on the side of a boat while enjoying a relaxing time with good friends. Irving Water Activities provides that ride on the picturesque Lake Carolyn. Bring a water-proofed camera as photo opportunities are aplenty!

Public Lake Tour

The Lady Carolyn is a covered, heated, high tech Lear Electric Boat with seating for 8. Tickets can be individually purchased, or the boat can be chartered for small groups. The Lady Carolyn cruises last 1 hour on Friday and Saturday evenings from 4:30 pm to 5:30 pm and then again from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm. Sundays begin earlier at 2:30 pm and then again at 4:30 pm. A bottle of water is provided for each guest as the beautiful lake and canals are explored. The Lady Carolyn sails year round due to her heated interior. She can also be rented as a dessert cruise for a romantic evening or a fun night out with friends.

Gondola Cruise

Imagine a Gondola ride on a beautiful, sunny day or a romantic evening without going to Venice. These cruises can be booked 24 hours a day and are either for 60 or 90 minutes.

Aqua Cycles

Get a great workout while having a blast on Lake Carolyn with an Aqua Cycle. These cycles provide high seating, wide paddles, and flexible steering. The three wheelers are easy to maneuver, are stable and easy to ride, and no training is needed. This is just $40.00 for a 55 minute rental for 1 or 2 people.
