Renting a boat gives you a chance to drive a boat, which, in turn, lets you feel a small piece of what it's like to be a boat. Test-drive a new lifestyle with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $129 for a five-hour ski-boat rental for up to 8 (a $349 value)
- $129 for a five-hour pontoon/deck-boat rental for up to 10 (a $349 value)
After strapping on complimentary life jackets, passengers board a pontoon/deck boat or ski boat and disembark from Westlake Park on Lewisville Lake. Throughout the five-hour excursion, passengers can snack on their own provisions and belt their favorite tunes in sync with their MP3 player, which can be docked on board. Groups must pay a $4 fee per vehicle for access to Westlake Park, but thereafter they enjoy unlimited access to its restrooms and picnic areas. Tubes and ski vests are available for rent.
Rentals are available Friday–Sunday in May and September and Thursday–Sunday in June, July, and August. Customers reserve for either the morning or the afternoon.
Boomerang Boat Club
In the 1950s, Lewisville Lake served as a municipal water source for Dallas. Over the next half-century, it evolved into a popular summertime attraction, even hosting a number of large-scale bass-fishing tournaments. In 2011, Lewisville Lake added a new distinction: it became the office of Boomerang Boat Club. Dedicated to getting people on the water at a low cost, the company rents its fleet of pontoon/deck boats and ski boats for full- or half-day excursions.
Lewisville Lake's waters, fed by the Trinity River and sustained by the Lewisville Dam, provide a placid canvas for boating. Before disembarking from Westlake Park, boaters can shimmy into life jackets and load the deck with snacks, provided they are not packaged in glass, grilled on board, or pilfered from a child's sand castle. As passengers settle in, convivial dockhands provide a basic orientation and answer any questions. Upon request, they also outfit boats with tubes and ski vests.
