Feel the gentle lake breezes while cruising with the family on a rented pontoon boat. Lake County is famous for its many lakes which are connected by canals and rivers to create miles of natural shoreline to explore. Whether you are fishing or just sightseeing, pontoon boats offer a great why to enjoy Florida and the nearby Harris Chain of Lakes.
Pontoon boat rentals are affordable fun for the whole family or just a group of friends. Most rental outlets provide either 4 hour or 8 hour rentals which are usually around $100-$150 depending on the amount of time requested. Once on the water you have the freedom to tour the lakes at your leisure and checkout the wildlife or cruise into the many lakeside ports where there is shopping and restaurants.
Depending on which lakes you wish to visit, you can choose from any number of pontoon boat rentals all within 15 minutes drive of our Leesburg-Tavares hotel.
