Some of the best times you will experience in our region take place on the water of Lake Murray. Sit back and relax while aboard a sail boat captained by Lanier Sailing Academy watching one of Lake Murray’s breathtaking sunsets, or take a moonlight paddle adventure on Lake Murray with Get Your Gear On. You don’t need to have your own boat to enjoy an afternoon on the water, simply rent a boat of your choice from one of the many rental companies, like Better Boating. The region’s variety of rental companies offer pontoon boats to enjoy a family outing, jet skis and ski boats for the more adventurous types, and kayaks for the slower paced. In the summer months, climb on board one of the lake’s tour boats, The Southern Patriot or The Spirit of Lake Murray to witness the Purple Martin Phenomenon. And if you want to try something new to hit Lake Murray… rent a SUP- Stand Up Paddle Board and paddle all around the lake’s islands. One thing is for sure, the lake is here to be enjoyed by you and we hope you take full advantage.
