We provide fun, affordable boat charters for those who want to experience Lake Austin or Lake Travis firsthand.

 

Where it all began

Lone Star Boat Rentals wouldn’t be what it is today had it not been for Jacob’s wife, Katie. After a long stint working in the oilfields of West Texas and Wyoming, time spent at home was sparse at best. Jacob left the oilfield and came home to seek other employment opportunities locally that would allow more time at home. During his employment search, Katie suggested renting their boat to clients looking to get out on the lake, something they both had a passion in doing. Jacob created a simple Craigslist ad and 5 years later, they now have 6 boats to offer to customers. When most wives wont allow a husband to have a single boat, Katie is always asking when they are going to get another!

We had 13 girls in town for a bachelorette party and Jacob and Blake provided an incredible time out on Lake Austin. The day was flawless! Blake was a fantastic captain and the pontoon boat was beautiful. We had a blast in the party cove and loved the lily pad. Book with them-they will show you a great time! Thanks again!
