Boating Made Simple®

Freedom Boat Club of Clear Lake

Local Club Locations: South Shore Harbor Marina

Clear Lake is known as a destination for year-round fun-in-the-sun. As the third largest boating center in the United States, the Clear Lake area offers the option of enjoying the protected waters of the lake or venturing out into Galveston Bay, or even fishing in the Gulf of Mexico--there are endless boating opportunities here! Members can go cruising, water skiing, fishing, swimming, and photographing, to just name a few.

And on dry land there are also countless opportunities for fun. We are located at South Shore Harbour Marina where our members enjoy access to the resort facilities. Around the area are antique and souvenir shops, delicious seafood restaurants, parks, and more. Afternoons can be spent visiting the Kemah Boardwalk for a ride on the ferris wheel or the Boardwalk Bullet (roller coaster), or enjoying of the many festivals or events. Space Center Houson nearby is home to several NASA Space Shuttles as well as a museum that is fun for all ages. And beautiful Galveston Island is a great destination--by land or by water--any time of year!

Here's How the Club Works

We Take Care of It All...Including the Boats

We’ve taken care to select a variety of quality boats. And we always keep them clean and maintained. We also take care of the storage, insurance and repairs. So you can just focus on the fun!

Pay a 1x Entry Fee and Monthly Dues

Just pay a 1x entry fee and choose one of our membership plans. Boat every day of the year. Or just weekdays. Some clubs may even have 3 and 6 month plans. And you can change your plan as the need arises.

Get Unlimited Training from Licensed Captains

Your safety is our No. 1 concern. So we give all our members unlimited training with USCG-certified captains. And if you wish to boat in a new location, they’ll show you the waterways.

Take Any Boat Out as Often as You Wish

Reserve a boat by phone or online. Then go fishing, tubing or head to a restaurant with friends. When you’re done, just bring the boat back and pay for the fuel. We take care of everything else!

Boat Ownership vs. Joining the Club

Boat ownership consists of much more than enjoying the water: cleaning, storage, maintenance and repairs, not to mention depreciation. The hidden costs of ownership can quickly add up, as can the time that is spent not enjoying the boat.
