What to know about hiring 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 hires 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.

    40ft Carver Voyager 370 in Seabrook texas Captain included

    We sailed with Captain Brad and Victoria. We enjoyed the boat and enjoyed the trip. There were 8 of us and we fit pretty comfortable. Captain Brad was there waiting for us and was ready for take off when we were. There is a mini fridge for you to use and as well as seating area. (inside and out). There is a Bluetooth system on the boat, but the volume did not play that loud. Overall, we were satisfied and would def rent again.

    47' Sailing Catamaran on Galveston Bay

    It was a great experience and our family really enjoyed themselves! Captain Terry and Tony are true lifesavers. They helped keep my plans alive with surprising my husband for his 40th Birthday. Another reservation I had with a different owner was suddenly cancelled the night before the trip, due to that crew were exposed to COVID-19. This left me scrambling with finding another reservation and Terry answered the call the morning of. Thank You!!!

    #16-Rent a 22' Sun Tracker Pontoon for 10 People in Seabrook, Texas

    Outstanding and flawless rental experience! The boat was the perfect centerpiece for our Kemah/Clear Lake visit, and Vernon was terrific in every possible way. Uncommonly helpful and friendly. If you need a boat or a jet ski, this is the place.

    47' Sailing Catamaran on Galveston Bay

    Terry and his crew were amazing! They helped me set up food for a party of 12 and even handled all the food unpacking and drinks. They went over and beyond then what I expected. The boat is beautiful and even took us to a great spot to swim. All in all the highlight of my first trip to the Houston area. Will definitely book again the next time I come back.
