If you plan on visiting Grapevine Lake, you have to rent a boat for at least a half-day to get the full experience of this gem in North Texas. You can reach Grapevine Lake in 40 minutes from Dallas, and once you arrive, you’ll want to have a boat rental reservation to head to on the docks or at a marina.
Pontoon boat rentals are some of the most popular on Grapevine Lake, especially for larger families or groups. You’ll have space to relax on deck, and pontoons are easy to operate. They are also perfect for jumping overboard for a swim. If you are going to Grapevine Lake to celebrate a special day, (like a bachelor or bachelorette party) book a party barge or party boat rental to accommodate your group. These larger pontoons offer lots of space for dancing and hosting a party on the water. Don’t forget to make a boat day playlist to connect with a Bluetooth sound system or plugin on your boat rental. You won’t want to cruise around the massive expanse of Grapevine Lake without music.

Rent a ski boat or other style of speedboat for all the fun activities one can enjoy while being towed behind a boat. Wakesurfing is a newer watersport that you’ll see many people doing on Grapevine Lake - ask about including the equipment in your rental cost when making the reservation.

Mike was a wonderful captain! We had an awesome time on the lake. He was super accommodating.. took our pictures, got us drinks.. we will definitely do this again!
Lazlo’s boat is great! Super clean, well taken care of and the perfect size for our group. We had a great time and Lazlo was very accommodating and helpful.
Our boating experience was fantastic. It was our first time ever using a captain and not sure we will ever not use one again. Frank made it very easy for us to just have a good time. Handled everything, was accommodating and just a great person. By the end of the day Frank wasn’t our captain but one of our friends. If you book with him you will not be disappointed!!
Daniel had his son Parker drive the boat. Parker was skilled and polite. We had to cut the trip short as our youngest was not enjoying it at all and was quite fussy.
captain frank made the whole day super fun! will definitely rent again!
Frank was awesome super chill guy and the boat is great definitely will be recommending him.
