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.

    BEST OF 2019 AWARD! Luxury Pontoon Charter - 2 Bags of Ice / Water / Boomin Stereo

    Overall experience with Mark and his boat was more than excellent! I would give him 20 stars if they allow me. He is very promt with communication, he is very friendly with a good sense of humor. He is also a great tour guide, leading us to beautiful spots on Lake Austin. The boombox, lilypad, cooler with ice, free gas and free plastic cups were great addition! He also sanitized the boat well. Plus having a photographer around was a plus! Highly recommend him and his baby! (Btw, the boat looks bigger than the picture, easy to walk around, dance and party!) Thank you so much for making our experience in Austin one of the best!!! We will definitely book you again or refer you to family and friends!

    BEST OF 2019 AND SUPER OWNER AWARDS! Spacious 25' Bentley Encore on Lake Travis!

    Spent a day out on the lake for a bachelorette party and it was definitely the highlight of our weekend. Austin was a great captain and made the whole process of getting to the dock and picked up so easily. Highly recommend for anyone taking a trip to Austin.

    BEST OF 2019 AND SUPER OWNER AWARDS! Spacious 25' Bentley Encore on Lake Travis!

    Our trip with Austin was fantastic. His boat is very well maintained, he provides plenty of ice and cooler space, and has a good sound system on board. Took us on a nice cruise around the lake, and down to a cove where we met up with some other chartered boats for a great time out on the lake.

    Frank's Boats on Lake Travis - 21 ft Blue Sea Ray with toys and awesome stereo. Have a BLAST on the Lake!!!

    Awesome experience! We did a last minute scheduling with Frank. He was at the ramp promptly on time, and we were out on the lake in 5 mins. Boat was in great shape and we had fun times cruising Lake Travis for 8 hours. Pick-up was as smooth and Frank took care of filling up too. We just sent the payment for gas to him afterwards. 5 stars, will rent again.

    Wow. What a great experience. Communication was excellent. Introduction and safety features perfect. Unfortunately we damaged the propeller, we told frank immediately. He was understanding and charged the least he could. Couldn’t recommend frank higher. Truly wonderful gentlemen. Regards
