Beware: On The Narrows web site advertised fees are considerably lower than what they will attempt to charge you. We called to rent jet skis but when we arrived at the reserved time, found the charges to be twice what we were quoted the previous...More

We had an amazing time on Big Glen. The staff were wonderful. The boat was comfortable and clean. The water was spectacular - parallel to the Caribbean. We will be back 👍

We had a great time with a 2, 9, and 11 year old cruising around the lakes. Super friendly and courteous staff. Yes they were all teenagers, but hard-working and attentive. Very knowledgeable. Beautiful 2 hour pontoon ride with family.

Every summer we rent a jet ski from On the Narrows for one-hour, and we have a blast cruising around Glen Lake. It's amazing to experience the lake from a different perspective. For us, an hour is long enough to get our fix. It's best...More
