Between voyages, Making Waves Boat Club’s fleet of watercrafts bobs cheerfully upon glistening marina waters as staffers scrub their hulls to a shine and fine-tune their motors, performing regular checkups. Each meticulously maintained vessel helps fulfill Making Waves’ mission—to grant aquatic enthusiasts a chance to explore local waterways without the hassles involved in boat ownership such as repairs, bills, and carpooling requests from neighborhood pirates. Each rental gives boaters the freedom to float wherever they choose as they spend a day in the sun, play watersports, and feel breezes that seem to come out just for them.
With 10" sub-woofers and spacious floors, Joe and Toni Watson?s fleet of catamarans were designed with revelry in mind. Licensed party-boat operators often chart routes to Party Cove, though they?ll happily stop anywhere on Lake Lewisville and crank up their vessel?s iPod-outfitted stereos. When parties rage beyond sunset, the boats? lights flicker on, casting a cool glow on the open deck and any stowaway flying fish.

There are other locations too, and even the art that students create varies: recent themes include a colorful owl and dreamcatchers. Canvas n Cocktails provides all the supplies, including paint, brushes, easels, aprons, and the canvas that you'll take home and model your home's entire interior design upon.
While many saw the 11-mile-per-hour winds that whipped across Lake Lewisville as an annoyance, Captain Mike saw them as the perfect fuel for a perpetual party. With the wind at his back, he pilots the Chamonix II, a 70-foot catamaran equipped for on-the-water events with a heated cabin, catered buffets, and plush couches lining the front deck. He plies the water daily, taking his passengers on corporate getaways, mobile wedding receptions, or private parties across the sunny waters. And as night sets in, he escorts intimate groups on quiet sunset dinner cruises. He invites dinner guests to bring their favorite alcoholic beverages to enjoy while they dine on catered Italian fair, chip golf balls off the deck at targets in the water, or make spooky faces with flashlights under the light of the moon.
