What to know about renting a boat in Houston

The Museum and Theater districts of Houston may be a huge international draw, but boating and watersport opportunities are also popular thanks to the four major bayous that it encompasses and the spacious bay to which it is adjacent. Boating in Galveston Bay is a real treat, as you can take in the impressive downtown Houston skyline while basking in the southern sun. Speedboats and sailing vessels

are equally at home in this sheltered area, and jet ski aficionados will find that there is plenty of space to rip across the waves. Pontoon rentals are another great option for boating - you can bring your whole family or big group of friends onboard for a fun day of cruising.

The bayous of Houston allow canoers and kayakers to get up close and personal with the unique ecological environment from which this immense city sprang, and such excursions will also afford the chance of glimpsing creatures such as river otters or even crocodiles. Fishermen can take advantage of the inland bodies of water such as Collins Park or Lake Livingston, or they can head offshore for the opportunity of landing redfish, tarpons, or shark. Fishing charters are an excellent choice for spending a day in Houston on the water.

About Houston

Considered to be the most diverse city in Texas, Houston proves that there is far more to this immense state than ranchland and cowboys. Positioned ideally on Galveston Bay, this sprawling city is a hub for Texan history, culture, and watersports. Since this metropolis is subject to the infamous heat and humidity of the American South, it is best to plan your trip through Houston’s lakes, bayous, and bay during the milder spring and autumn months.

    Thrilling Ride on 2019 Yamaha EX Sport Jet Ski in Lake Houston, Texas

    Great set of Yamaha Jet Skis that really “whip”! The family had an awesome 8 hours on these bad boys and we would highly recommend the service to others if you’re going out on Lake Houston! The two floats provided were great as well and these two skis cool pull them with no issues!

    This is the best deal around on Jet skis, bar none. Everything’s included. They brought the Jet skis to us and provided lifevest, tow rope, tube and an air pump. Very flexible and easy to work with. Highly recommended. Will rent from Joshua again.

    Book the 2007 Sea Ray 340 Sundancer 38 ft. Motor Yacht in Clear Lake Shores, Texas

    We loved Captain Danny! He was very accommodating and took us wherever we wanted! He let us enjoy our break from reality! Just make sure you ask what pier he is on first before parking, or you may be taking a little walk in the hot sun! Danny took us all around the coast and even took us to a little spot where everyone chills and swims! Plenty of room!! We definitely recommend and we definitely can't wait to book him again! 🥰
