There is a reason that Texans call their home state the “Lone Star State”. The fact that the state of Texas is so welcoming makes it possible to boat pretty much year-round, and there are plenty of landscapes and water-based activities to choose from. Texas is an ideal place for tourists and visitors who want to rent a boat and get out on the water. Rent a powerboat to cruise around the beloved lakes of Texas and enjoy water sports, or try sport fishing on the coast. Pontoon rentals are a popular choice for locals and visitors to Texas who want to beat the heat and get together with friends and family. Kayak rentals, houseboat rentals, and other watercraft are available for a fun time on the water in Texas.
From coast to the inland lakes, Texas offers boating experiences across the state. Summers tend to get quite hot, but being in the water refreshes your day like nothing else. Lake Travis is a particular favorite for boat lovers in Austin, as it sits just outside the city. The Colorado River also passes through Austin and is beaming with watersport fans relishing the sun on canoes, jet skis, pontoons, and luxury yachts.
Another popular boating destination in Texas is the city of Galveston, located on Galveston Island on the coast. Fishing in Galveston is a hobby for most of the locals and many of the tourists. If you are an avid angler, fishing charters in Texas are available. During the high season, the waters are brimming with flounder, trout, blacktip, blue runner, bull shark, king mackerel, red snapper, redfish, sea trout, and kingfish. Texan waters promise not to leave you empty-handed. There are numerous fishing charters available at almost any harbor. Galveston Harbor and West Galveston Bay are the most prominent boating harbors, offering exotic excursions and a sailing paradise.
The Gulf and Lakes in Texas are filled with many fish to catch and calm waters to cruise through. Spend a day on a boat charter in Texas and experience the exciting thrill of seeing the marine life, spending time with family and friends, and relaxing under the warm sun. Sunset cruising is a popular visitor experience due to the overwhelming beauty of the sun setting over the Texas Gulf. Boating with a larger group of friends is the new big thing in Galveston. You can rent motorboats, yachts, sailboats, pontoons, and powerboats to specifically meet the needs of your group and have the time of your life in Texas waters.
Andrew was easy to communicate with and made sure we knew all of the details before our departure. Our caption was Garrett. He kept us safe and made sure we had fun! Great experience. Would highly recommend for a bachelorette party or any group boat experience!
I, my close friends, & family had an amazing time. The captain & co- captain were very friendly & welcoming. Their hospitality was exemplary. They handled the vessel with precision. Starting off, the cabin temp was a little warmer than I preferred,however, it was a beautiful, breezy evening with calm waters so we opened the cabin windows (issue resolved). Anyone interested in this type of experience, I would without hesitation recommend Tony & his crew. YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME!
Anton is a great captain! He took us all around the lake and found the best swimming spot. Super professional and helpful (especially with setting up the lily pad) Highly recommend choosing him for a great experience.
Such a fun experience! Rented for a bachelorette and it was such a blast! 10/10 recommend! Our caption was knowledgeable, fun, and an all around cool guy! We will definitely be returning to Austin & renting Austins pontoon again this summer!
Anton was awesome. Great guy! All around superb experience. If you're looking for great customer service and a memorable experience look no further than Anton. I'll definitely be contacting him again in the near future. Thanks Anton
Andrew was very easy to get ahold of and communicate with! We used his boat for a bachelorette party, and everyone had the best time. He’s very kind and accommodating! The boat was as described and beautiful in person. We had a blast! Thank you, Andrew!
