  • Ask the captain if gas is included in the price of your trip. Some owners include gas in the price and some don't, so be sure to ask.
  • Picking the right size and type of boat for your trip and guest count makes a huge difference. Make sure that the boat you choose can accommodate what you want to do and group size. When in doubt, message the captain and ask.

Boat Rental FAQs

Can you rent a boat for a day?

How much does it cost to rent a boat for a day?

The cost depends on the type of boat you want to rent. A pontoon boat rental can start as low as $200 a day and for something more luxurious like a motor yacht rental the cost can increase to $5,000 a day.

Do you need a boat license to rent a boat?

No, you do not need a license to rent a boat. With GetMyBoat you can rent a boat that includes a licensed captain so that you can enjoy your time on the water. If you want to drive the boat yourself, depending on the specific location you will need to at the very least have a Boating Safety Certificate.

Renting a boat has never been easier thanks to GetMyBoat. It’s simple, just search GetMyBoat by the location you wish to visit, filter the boats based on type and group size, and submit a rental inquiry once you find a boat you like. Boat owners will respond with a custom offer and you can confirm and pay for the rental all through the website.

How long is a half-day boat rental?

Typically a half-day boat rental is any rental duration that lasts 4 hours. Boat owners usually like to split the day into two rentals, one in the morning for 4 hours and then a second for the later part of the day. Through GetMyBoat you can specify what timeframe you would like to reserve and the owner will let you know if they can or cannot accommodate your rental times.

How does GetMyBoat work for Renters?

After you submit the inquiry, the owner will respond with a customized rental offer for you to review. Once you agree on the rental terms, you pay for the rental in full via credit card through GetMyBoat to secure your rental reservation.

    My husband had a wonderful birthday on the boat, enjoying the scenery in the harbor and speed on the ocean. Nassar is a pro at what he does: clear, pleasant communicator with a nice sense of humor. And very sweet to my dog too. We will remain in touch for our next ride:)

    I had an wonderful afternoon celebrating my birthday with my family! Eddie was an awesome captain and even let my teen son drive the boat for a bit. We cruised north out of the Marina harbor and anchored in Paradise Cove to enjoy the spectacular sunset! Can’t wait for our next boating adventure with this crew!
