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!

“Lone Star Boat Rentals showed my family and I the best time on our first attempt at wakeboarding. They were so professional and made it a fun time for everyone. We will definitely be using their services again.”
