Pontoon Rentals Lake Okeechobee
Lake Okeechobee is the heart of the Florida Everglades and the state’s most famous big bass fishery. It’s a highly scenic and precious water system in south-central Florida that everyone should get to experience.
Luckily, the days of having to decide between splitting up your group or going on a large commercial headboat or airboat are over. Bassonline now offers the chance to rent a boat for your entire group of up to twelve people in the famous Lake Okeechobee, the largest lake in Florida. Our pontoon rental boats come with everything you need to set sail, relax, sightsee, and catch fish.
Pontoons are made for pleasure and relaxation; renting one is excellent for families, young children, groups, and people with disabilities. The rentals have a bimini top for shade, plenty of seating, and are dog-friendly.
Our lake Okeechobee boat rentals launch out of Slims Fish Camp in Belle Glade, the lake’s southeast end. Belle Glade, Fl is conveniently located to West Palm Beach and within an hour’s drive to Okeechobee, Fl (Okeechobee City). Belle Glade is the closest launch part of the lake for anybody coming from South Florida areas such as Fort Lauderdale and Miami.
Okeechobee pontoon boats are a perfect way to experience famous Florida bass fishing and incredible sightseeing.
Who Should Rent A Boat On Lake Okeechobee
Lake Okeechobee boat rentals are the perfect adventure for large families or a group of friends looking to enjoy an outdoor activity or fishing in the bass capital of the world without having to split up. Previous visitors have rented the boat for special events such as family reunions, corporate outings, and a bachelorette party.
Bass boats and other flats boats can only fit 3 or 4 people maximum, a pontoon fishing charter can fit up to 6 passengers, but your boat rental can fit up to twelve passengers!
Pontoon boats are much sturdier and roomier than flats and bass boats. Pontoons don’t rock as much and have sides making it safer for young kids.
Our pontoon boats are roomy, with plenty of sitting areas under the bimini top for those looking for a relaxing experience out of the sun. We love when the grandparents come and enjoy watching their grandkid’s faces light up after they catch a fish. It’s also a much sturdier experience than the bass and flats boats and more intimate than public headboat and airboat tours. A bass and flats boat is much lower and requires more balance from a person boarding as well.
Because of the excess floor space and set up of a pontoon, accommodating those in a wheelchair or any handicap situation is no problem. Pontoons are higher up and more level with the dock, making boarding much easier for our renters.
For those who get easily nauseated by rocking water, pontoon boats will likely provide a much better experience for you compared to a low rocky bass boat.
Our pontoon boat rental is available with the goal in mind for everyone to have an exciting, amazing day. This even goes for your four-legged friend. Well-behaved dogs are more than welcome on board.

Boat Rentals on Okeechobee
Lake Okeechobee is legendary for producing quality and quantity largemouth bass, creating the ultimate fishing adventure with the whole family.
Pontoons are large enough to fit a group but small enough to cruise the calm Lake O waters with fishing success. While pontoon fishing, you will have the same high probability of success as in flats or bass boats. In fact, the number of fish caught by people who rent a pontoon is often higher because of the ability to have more rods out at once. The boat is the perfect size and shape to have many people fishing around it. Your mate will be able to take you to all the best spots, so everyone has a shot at catching fish regardless of which side of the boat you are on.
Live bait, especially wild shiners, is typically the most effective method in catching a trophy on the big o.
Lake Okeechobee is most known for its incredible bass fishing, but it also holds a thriving panfish population such as bluegill and black crappie.
Being part of the Florida Everglades, Lake Okeechobee is home to a vast amount of plants and animals. Apart from the fishes and alligators, Lake Okeechobee is an incredible birdwatching spot. The sanctuaries on Lake Okeechobee help protect various species, including Snail Kites and the American Bald Eagle.
