Test The Water’s, Texas Style
Everything's bigger in Texas, and Boatsetter has got the fleet to match it! Although Texas may not be your typical boating destination, the Lonestar state has a vast assortment of waterways to cater to anyone's needs. Across the state, there are 3,700 named streams and 15 major rivers accounting for over 80,000 miles of Texas land. All of the state's waterways drain towards the Mississippi River, the Texas Gulf Coast, or the Rio Grande, with mouths located in seven major estuaries. Raft down the Rio Grande, a river that forms its border with Mexico, wakeboard across the many lakes, or cruise out of a cove directly into the Gulf. Texas puts a twist on your typical water experience. So kick off your cowboy boots and sink into some aquatic activities.
RiversWith an abundance of river options, how could one not take advantage of water as a means of relaxation? Raft up, fish, picnic on the water, and relax down the river's on a Pontoon. Get the music up and running, your cooler filled, and spread out to soak up the sun while sharing the fun with your loved ones and friends! Or, if you prefer, you can pull up and dock at one of the many restaurants along the waterfronts. Looking to celebrate? Pedal down the river's on this Party Barge while sipping on drinks, and simultaneously getting a workout in. Set your own pace as you take in the beautiful scenery the state has to offer.
