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.

    We had an AWESOME time! The boat was great and had everything we needeed (seating,fridge,bathroom,place to put valuables). The crew was extremely helpful and made the trip so much fun! They even had outlets for us to charge up our devices. LOVED LOVED LOVED the experience. The only ding would be the bathroom toilet bowl was old but clean.
