I always rent from daybreak because they are so friendly, but last week I was with a friend who insisted on Just for fun so we went to Just for fun and then I remembered why I dont go there. The owner is extremely rude and the workers obviously take their lead from him. Obnoxious bunch of people the service is extremely slow but why would they care by the time you get in the wave runner you are 10 minuted into your hour rental and they dont care they stress that you have to be back within the hour because every additional minute is 3 dollars. Are they serious? I thought they were kidding but no we got in 3 minutes late and they charged us 9 dollars that would make the hourly rental 180 dollars plus the 75 they charged. I guess its a good way to gouge renters. Go to daybreak if you are late a few minutes they let it go they are really great there.

I had the same experience as several other recent reviewers. JFF tried to charge me $108.00 for a supposedly 'damaged' prop. The owner told me if it was his personal boat, he would just fix the prop but since I supposedly damaged the prop, he had to replace it. The guy is rude, obnoxious and crook. Don't do business with these people.

They charged us for a "damaged" propeller and made us buy a replacement. When we asked them if we could keep the old propeller, since it was no longer any good, they said no, that they were going to fix it.
So why did we need to buy a new one for them if they could just fix the one we supposedly broke??? As if paying $150 for a ski boat rental wasn't enough. So they got to make an extra $100 plus tax for a part which cost $40 to buy and nothing to replace. Since the employees are on an hourly wage, they don't get paid anything extra to install. It took them 5 minutes for them to install it, so there was no need for us to paid parts and labor.
You're better off going somewhere else.

Ive rented boats in a lot of different places and have not found any better than Just for Fun. The boats are always in good shape. The people are helpful and courteous and the prices are fair.
I do have a couple of suggestions for any readers that are planning to rent a boat: Call ahead and make a reservation. Or do it through their website. (Being good means they get quite busy) If possible go during the week or early in the day (My preference because the lake isnt as busy) Tell the staff if you are a beginner (They really know a lot about boating and will spend extra time helping you if they know)
Another thing Just for Fun has is Party Barges. My office has our annual picnic on one of these each year...they are the bomb! The driver takes care of getting you there and all you have to do is have fun. They have slides and Bar B Que grills (we always just order fajitas from Carlos n Charlies next door) Everyone has a great time and then they start bugging me about next years party.
I've gotten to know most of the staff over the years and they always remember me when I show up. I've seen some reviews where people complain but each of those seems to be about bad weather or something getting damaged. These things occasionally do happen, but Just for Fun has always been professional and fair even if there is a problem.
I highly recommend Just for Fun for any boating needs at Lake Travis. Ask for Ted or Kyle or Chris and they will take good care of you.

Whether its renting a boat for a day of water skiing or a party boat for a corporate/family gathering, Just for Fun has what you need. We were able to rent a ski boat one afternoon for some fun water skiing and tubing with friends. We attended a company picnic on one of their party boats, and had a great time. They also offer jet ski rentals.

This oceanfront La Quinta was a little more expensive than most La Quintas but you can find weekend deals. The rooms were not as clean as most in the chain and were a little run down. However, the location right on the beach in Daytona Beach made up for the rooms. They have a nice pool area that directly overlooks the beach and is a very comfortable area for just relaxing.

I've had the pleasure of using Just For Fun twice to charter a party barge on Lake Travis, and each time was a dream.

The barge captains were very laid-back and got us to our scheduled destinations quickly, and without any fuss. Once there, we were free to swim to our heart's content.

Food and drinks (and alcohol) are allowed, and there are trashcans on the barges so litter is contained. The bathroom was clean both times, and there is plenty of seating available for every guest.

This is such a fun place to rent boats, waverunners, ski boats, and houseboats. The best part is that there are no surprises with their rental rates. All prices include gas!!

The party barges are excellent for bridal parties, office parties and just to have fun with friends and family members. They usually have some kind of special, so that helps with the expense.

The lake is beautiful, and it is nice to actually be able to get on the lake without having to purchase and store your own watercraft.
