Galveston Boat Rentals
The past of Galveston is imbued in stories of French pirates and fighting Spain. But today Galveston is also known for being one of the largest ports of the United States. Located on the Galveston Island, a barrier island just off the coast of Texas, the city boasts an impressive 32-mile stretch of beach. That’s great news for boating enthusiasts and beach-lovers alike.
Boating in Galveston
Tourists flock to Galveston to experience the rich history that is still preserved in more than 400 Victorian homes. However, boaters find the waters of this port city especially appealing to enjoy their favorite sport. While the warm waters of Galveston Bay lure tourists from all across the United States, boaters are especially in love with the wide options that the city offers. Depending on your preferences, you can go for deep sea fishing charters, pontoon rentals, or power boating. You can also opt for a kayak tour or for one of the dolphin watching tours and witness the beautiful mammals in their natural habitat.
Galveston offers many opportunities to explore on-the-water activities. If you love boats, visit the several historic ships that remain preserved in the place.
