Texas Boat Rentals & Charters

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.

Boating Destinations 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 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 hire motorboats, yachts, sailboats, pontoons, and powerboats to specifically meet the needs of your group and have the time of your life in Texas waters.

    My family and I really enjoyed our day on the lake! The boat and all the swim toys were in perfect condition; I loved the large canopy. I appreciated Frank’s flexibility with our schedule, especially that we were able to stay on the water longer than planned because we were having so much fun!

    We would highly recommend booking this boat & the captain. They were awesome, took us all around the lake and made a stop for us to pick up our parents. Amazing sound system, plenty of room for coolers floats, shade when we needed it, easy to get in and out of and dry storage too!
