At Pontoon Rentals & Tours, we carry pontoon boat rentals (with captain) that allow you and your party of boaters to enjoy the day on Lake Murray, with the confidence and knowledge of an experienced master captain. Cruise along the water, stopping to sun bathe or swim, and dock along the shoreline and experience one of the many delicious restaurants that are right on the lakeside. We have flexible hours and can accommodate early or late start times. Our typical day is approximately 7 hours.

Our pontoon boat rentals are 24-28 feet in length and include life jackets, anchors, a map, radio, swimming ladder, and cooler. The fishing pontoon comes complete with fishing chairs, rod holders, and a fish/depth finder.

*Fuel not included for fishing or cruising pontoon rentals.

Boat Tours

2-Hour Tours: Purple Martin Tour, Sunset Cruise Tour, Graveyard Tour, Island Tour, $180 fuel included

A pontoon boat tour on Lake Murray can consist of whatever the group would like to do. The captain can make some suggestions of good areas to swim, lounge, eat lunch or dinner, and sight see. Ultimately, we want you to enjoy your time on Lake Murray. You may also enjoy your own adult beverage, knowing that an experienced, sober captain is at the helm.

One of our most popular boat tours is the Purple Martin Tour, which is offered each summer between June and September. The Purple Martin is a bird from the swallow family that migrates from South America nests on the island of Lake Murray each summer evening. Watching thousands of birds converge and roost on the island at dusk is an amazing sight.

Camping Overnight

As part of our boat tours, we offer the option for your group to camp on the island. Campsites are "first come, first camp", and there is no charge to camp on the island. Contact us today at (803) 530-3713 for information and pricing.
