Take the party on the water with a pontoon hire

Hire or a charter a pontoon boat for a leisurely cruising experience. A pontoon, also known as a "party barge," is a great option for a larger group to cruise the water, have a picnic, and enjoy quality time spent together. Pontoons have a wide, stable deck with a lot of space and railings, making it the perfect boat for entertaining a family. A sunny day paired with beautiful scenery and good company makes for the perfect day on the water. Whether you're celebrating a birthday, hens or stags party, proposing to your soon-to-be significant other, or on a family holiday, a pontoon boat hire is the perfect venue.

Things to consider for your pontoon hire so that you get the most out of your trip

  • Ask about the sound system and if it is Bluetooth compatible. The right playlist can elevate your pontoon trip to the next level from normal to awesome.
  • Are you looking to have some snacks or a meal on the boat? Of course you are, so make sure to ask about coolers, BBQs, or any other amenities you need to feed your group.
  • Check what types of water toys are included. You might want a lily pad to lounge in the water with groups, pool noodles, or even a paddleboard.
  • Make sure you have the right size boat for your group. Make sure that the capacity of the group fits with the captain included.
  • Planning to bring your family dog along for the adventure? Check with the owner to make sure the boat you're hiring is pet friendly.

    **2020 Super Owner** 2020 Luxury Tritoon Pontoon Party Barge - Great for Parties or Family Days on Canyon Lake

    This boat was awesome! Brand new and so nice, especially compared to other rental options in the area. A group of 12 of us fit nicely and had a great time exploring the lake and swimming. Our boat captain was easy to communicate with and made sure we had a wonderful time out on the water! Would definitely book this boat again in the future!

    I made the reservation with Austin in the summer and then we unfortunately had to reschedule our trip. He allowed us to early reschedule for a few months out with no problem. When we did make it out to the lake, his captain Zach was so great. He matched the vibe of the group and was a great host.

    **2020 Super Owner** 2020 Luxury Tritoon Pontoon Party Barge - Great for Parties or Family Days on Canyon Lake

    We had a great time with our captain, Tom. We didn't have to worry about figuring out how to operate the boat, anchoring, where to go, etc. The boat was very clean and comfortable. The toys/floaties for the kids were great. Tubing was very fun also. Communication with the owner is very easy, prompt, and flexible when we had to change the day. Highly recommend!

    We had the best day out on the lake thanks to them! Austin communicated early on about changes to the itinerary and made sure we were okay with them as well. He promptly answered any questions I had about the trip. The boat was really nice and spacious and we really enjoyed being able to hang out on the lily pad.

    8 Guests - 2017 Harris 23.5' Double Bimini Tritoon on Lake Travis

    Captain Frank is a great captain. He knows the lake well & found a calm cove on a windy day for my small grandkids could enjoy! When we spotted a turtle, Captain was eating a carrot & bit off pieces so my grandchildren could feed the turtle! The lily pad was fun. Very clean boat!! Yes he even was the perfect host when he handed my son a beer so he didn't have to get out of the water. The marina the boat is docked at is first class. Highly recommend.

    Frank was so amazing! His boat was so nice, very luxurious pontoon, and such a great atmosphere. Love that majority of it was shaded yet still enough sunlight as well. We’ll definitely book again and I’m sure anyone who takes a trip with him, will. He took us to a beautiful spot to lounge on the lily pad and we just stayed on it the whole time!!! It was so relaxing and a great way to unwind. He knows a lot of knowledge about the area, real estate and just a great guy to chat with. Awesome vibes and beautiful boat!
