“I have been boating for 45 years and enjoy being on and around the water with my family and friends.”
Aboard since 2016
From Clear Lake Shores, TX
What an awesome day we had -- Joe is so friendly and helpful. We arrived on time and he was waiting for us and waved us over. It's the nicest pontoon boat I've been on -- loved the fishing chairs in the back. He gave us a very thorough and professional safety and operational briefing. My husband is an experienced boater but agreed that the overview was incredibly helpful. We also very much appreciated his suggestions on where we should go for sightseeing and also grabbing a bite to eat. He offered to help us with our belongings and just made everything so easy -- even took awesome photos of us before we took off. We were a party of seven -- our family of three and our good friends, family of four, all the kids teenagers. We were very comfortable the whole day and had a blast!! Would rent from Joe again in a heartbeat and recommend him highly!
I don’t know how a boat owner could have been more friendly, helpful and kind. Joe seemed genuinely interested in us having a great time which we did! The boat was super clean and well-maintained. If you are looking to rent a pontoon boat on Clear Lake, look no further. You won’t find a better deal than Avalon!
Great day on the lake. Met Joe at the dock where the boat was waiting for us. He was on time and the boat was ready to go. Went over the check list and we were on our way. Returned the boat at the designated time and Joe waiting for us. He is a very nice guy and his boat is very clean and has all the needed equipment for safe and fun time on the water. We will do this again.
Took my family out for a special occasion yesterday on Joe's pontoon. It was my first time renting on Boatsetter...and I was very impressed...with the ease of signing up, making the reservation, connecting with Joe, and completing the enjoyable time. Joe took extra time to make sure we understood the details of his well-cared for, clean, and new boat. I feel like I have a new friend in Joe...and certainly a new place to rent a boat. I highly recommend Joe and his pontoon...and Boatsetter.
My DIL and I rented the boat for a Father’s Day gift of boating and fishing for my husband and son. Joe was a pleasure to work with right from the start! He is very responsive and a really nice guy!! We loved the boat, the personal service and the process for rental. We plan to do it again just as soon as we can! Thanks for everything, Joe!
This was the last day of my families week vacation, and it was everyone's favorite activity from the whole week. This is in large part of Joe, and his beautiful boat. He was amazing, so helpful, kind, on time and accommodating. He made the process so easy, and covered everything where we had no question... Except when we were trying to find a specific location once we were on the water, and he was so quick to respond with a pin drop that got us there in minute! I would definitely use Joe again in the future!
Our family (4 adults and 4 kids) had an amazing day on Joe’s boat. The pontoon was the perfect size for our group and is very well maintained. Joe was great to work with, very responsive, and gave us lots of great tips on places to explore and where to swim. We would definitely rent this boat again!
We had a wonderful family day on the water. Joe replied quickly to all my questions. It was very nice that the boat was ready to go at the dock when we arrived. We did some cruising on the water & some fishing. Seamless process, I highly recommend this boat.
Joe and his boat were great to meet and rent. I thought I wrote a review a long time ago but apparently not, sorry for the delay.
Great deal on boat, convenient location and clam waters for boating. Joe was great to work with and we repeated for two years while we were down on vacation.
We cannot thank Joe enough for his awesome service. Joe explained the instructions very carefully to ensure the safety of everyone. The boat was very cleaned and described exactly in the pictures. My friends and I rented the boat for a birthday celebration. Joe made the celebration more special. Thank you Joe for an amazing experience!
We had a great experience renting from Joe! The boat was in excellent condition and being able to take it out from the dock without having to trailer it was very convenient. We'll definitely try to get this boat again the next time we rent!
If I could give Joe 10 stars, I would in a heartbeat! My wife and I celebrated our 1-year anniversary on Joe's boat and the experience was so outstanding that we are bringing friends and going to rent from him again! Everything was clean and in order when we arrived and Joe walked us through the ins and outs of his watercraft after which he gave us tips on where to go for the best food, fishing, and sightseeing! He even had a small gift for me and my wife to enjoy for our anniversary out on the water! What an unbeatable experience for an unbeatable price! We highly recommend renting from Joe and we are sure you won't be disappointed!
Joe was awesome a real pleasure to work with. The Avalon Pontoons was a great boat practically brand new and with plenty of space for all your friends. Joe was even nice enough to leave a cooler with a bag of ice and some waters for us. I would definitely rent from him again and would recommend him to family and friends a really great experience!
We had a great time on Joe's boat this past Friday. The boat was well-maintained with plenty of room, very comfortable and had all the necessities- GPS, depth finder, radio, baitwell, etc. The boat is easily accessible and already in the water so no need to trailer and unload.
Joe is very friendly and helpful providing us with water and ice for our trip and then treating us to shaved ice upon our return.
We highly recommend this boat and owner and will certainly rent again ourselves.
The Hicks Family
We rented this boat from Joe and it was the best experience ever. He was helpful from start to finish. Met the family at the dock and he and his wife showed us everything we needed to know about the boat. Beautiful boat, too!! Spacious enough for all of us to stretch out and have our own space, as well as easy to drive. He got us out of the dock, since it was pretty close quarters, and then we picked him up at the end to get it back home. Was very kind and engaging: this was not just a money transaction to him. He got to know the whole family. If we ever rented a boat again in the area, it would be with Joe.
It was a perfect weekend on the water! Joe was extremely kind and easy to work with. We spent all day out on the boat, and even when I made a rookie mistake handling the boat and did some damage to it, Joe was very gracious and patcient as we work through getting it resolved. Thanks for the amazing weekend! I couldn't have asked for a better first time out in Clear Lake!
I fell in love with this boat. My family had a perfect day cruising around the lake in luxury. Joe was very accommodating. We met at the boat slip and everything was ready to go. Way more convenient than I had anticipated. We will definitely do this again.
