Pontoon Rental

Pontoon Rentals Make Dale Hollow Lake Even More Fun

Sunset Marina offers six choices for pontoon rentals so you can plan a day at the lake for an intimate cruise or a party on the waves. We have hard top and soft top pontoons. One rental even has a “John” onboard. The larger pontoons provide a table, chairs, a gas grill and a cooler. Some pontoons have a slide and a sundeck. Dale Hollow Lake is a beautiful body of water that provides many areas for adventure, fishing and relaxing.
