Galveston Houseboat Rentals

Close your eyes and imagine floating across a serene lake as the sun slowly sets in the distance. This can be your reality when you rent a house boat during your vacation to Galveston.

Houseboat vacations are like no other. You’re guaranteed a gorgeous view, and if you ever get a little tired of your surroundings, just pull anchor and explore that new cove across the way. As the sun kisses your shoulders and casts dapples across the water, your travel mates can cannonball right off the side of the boat and play the day away. No one will be glued to their phones during this trip!

Houseboat rentals are all about ease, convenience, and comfort. They often offer a complete kitchen, bathrooms, a television, and comfy beds. Take advantage of that kitchen to save money by making tasty meals for your group. Luxury house boats can offer even more glamorous amenities, like jet skis, an on-board hot tub, and a huge deck designed for sipping cocktails and dancing late into the night with your favorite friends.

The beauty of a house boat is that it lets you explore a totally new side of Galveston. Now you aren’t pinned down to a certain location or stymied by traffic. You can explore the waterways and coves on your own time and bed down on a different shore each night.

Travelocity offers a wide range of houseboat rentals throughout Galveston. Everything from a standard barge to a luxury yacht or sailboat can be your next boat home and make for an unforgettable aquatic vacation. Start your house boat search today!
