Boating in Branson

No matter the season, there is always something fun to do on a boat in Branson. We offer three pristine lakes that are unmatched in beauty, activities and scenery.

If you’re looking for some on-the-water recreation, Branson is the place for you. Check out these great ideas for boating on our three pristine lakes this year!


For a memorable day on the lake, rent a boat! On Table Rock Lake, check out State Park Marina or Bass Pro Shops Long Creek Marina. Both marinas offer a large variety of boat rentals, including ski, pontoon and bass fishing boats.

If you’re hungry for some of the best trout fishing in the country, visit Fall Creek MarinaScotty’s Trout Dock and Marina or Lilley’s Landing on Lake Taneycomo. You can rent boats and head out on your own, or you can choose to take a guided fishing trip from one of their expert fishing guides. Check here for all things fishing!

Bull Shoals Lake is also a fantastic choice for lake and fishing excursions. Check out all you need to know about Bull Shoals Lake here.  

If you prefer to bring your own boat to Branson, take advantage of daily slip rentals at many area marinas. Or visit Table Rock State Park where you can launch your boat into Table Rock Lake using the park’s concrete or asphalt boat ramps.

Take advantage of the many watersports available in the Branson area. For kayaking, canoeing or stand-up paddleboarding, check out Kayak Branson, located near Table Rock Lake, or White River Kayaking and Outdoors, located near Lake Taneycomo. Both companies provide transport and offer guided tours.

For something truly unique, check out renting Hydro Bikes at Main Street Marina on Lake Taneycomo. A bit more adventurous, but safe for people as young as eight years old, these “boats” will give you that bit of activity you are looking for!


Maybe what floats your boat is simply relaxing on one! If this is you, check out the Sightseeing Cruise on the Lake Queen, a modern replica of the majestic paddleboats that reigned on the White River in the early years of Branson’s history. Or try the Dinner Cruise on the Landing Princess, a luxury cruise on Lake Taneycomo.

On Table Rock Lake, set sail from the State Park Marina on the Spirit of America, a 48-foot sailing catamaran. You can hop on one of their regularly scheduled excursions or check out their options for group and corporate charters.

Also, on Table Rock Lake, enjoy the Showboat Branson Belle, a sightseeing dinner cruise owned by the owners of Silver Dollar City that features incredible live shows, incomparable views and delicious cuisine!
