Lynn Creek Marina has been lounging on the shore of Joe Pool Lake since 1990, granting visitors access to 7,500 acres of aquatic entertainment. The marina's 541 covered and uncovered wet slips house boats up to 50 feet, and its dry storage areas protect boats up to 28 feet long from squalls and water-balloon fights. Visitors can rent SunTracker pontoon boats, Sea Ray ski boats, 2011 Yamaha WaveRunners, and 14-foot fishing boats, or bring a boat in need of mending to the full-service marine repair facility.
Additionally, the ships' store furnishes outings with a selection of marine accessories and gear, including fishing tackle and bait, snacks, and water toys, and the Oasis Restaurant and Lakeview Bar fuels boaters with grilled seafood and Tex-Mex fare. Lakeside breezes swirl through the rest of the marina's grounds, parading fresh air toward the swimming pool for slip lessees and their families, the driving range, the miniature-golf course, and the yacht club that hosts events and sailboat races, including the annual Mayday Regatta.
Bring your Italian-fairytale fantasies to life without enduring the cost and chaos of the international flight or another encounter with the Man on the Scooter. You'll set out from either Gondola Adventures’ floating headquarters or the nearby Omni Mandalay Hotel. A master gondolerino will either sing or play romantic music as he pokes and paddles through quiet canal inlets on to the foamy heads of waterfalls or across the glassy, mirrored-sky expanse of the lake. You'll be plied with chocolates and non-alcoholic sparkling wine. Thanks to Irving's 1888 anti-hoedown law, if you want alcoholic wine you'll have to purchase it from the Omni Mandalay Hotel and have them cork it and bring it down to the boat.

The sailing school's staff teaches students how to sail keelboats, farebeats, and yachts with all the basic techniques recommended by the American Sailing Association. In their coastal navigation classes, meanwhile, they demonstrate a variety of navigational theories for coastal and inland waters, including roping a dolphin and letting it pull you to shore. Their classes take place either on Lake Grapevine or in the islands, while discovery sailing adventures give explorers a taste of the open water.
