  • 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.

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.

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.

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.

    Loved the whole experience with Steve!! He’s a great communicator, his posting was very accurate. Steve was very welcoming and accommodating to the whole group (15 of us). Very chill and down to earth, great to talk to and cool with kids. Overall we’d definitely be coming back ☺️

    21' Avalon Pontoon in South Lake Tahoe, California

    Our family had a great time on Luke’s pontoon boat! The whole experience from beginning to end was perfect. Luke gave us some tips on where to go so that was really nice since the lake is huge. My daughter loved being pulled on the tube! I would definitely rent from him again.

    Bareboat charter sailing catamaran for parties / events in Long Beach

    David was FANTASTIC!! Literally cant speak highly enough of David and his boat. This was a pretty last minute booking and David was able to go above and beyond and accommodated everyone of our requests. He was so kind and polite and gave us all the details to ensure everything went smooth for a surprise birthday party! He made sure our guests were safe while also allowing us to have fun. He took several photos and videos for us to have lasting memories. The boat is incredible and exceeded all expectations, he allowed us to put up some decorations inside for the birthday boy and they were the perfect touch for the special day. Plenty of space for everyone! Thank you so much David!!

    2018 Yamaha 242 Limited SE boat rental in South Lake Tahoe

    My family and I had an amazing time on Brad’s boat. First of all, the boat is gorgeous and very clean. He was our pilot and he recommended cool places to check out on Lake Tahoe. We went to emerald bay and did water tubing afterwards. He is so friendly and accommodating! My family and I will be booking him again! Highly recommend him - 10/10!!

    38' Hunter 376 Cruising Monohull in Annapolis, Maryland, USA

    Captain Alberto and his 38’ Hunter were perfect for an afternoon sail on the bay! He responded to the inquiry and communications quickly. You help as much or as little as you want, and the Hunter is perfectly setup to take a dip in the bay if you want.
