Boat Rentals & Charters in Connecticut

Connecticut is a wonderful coastal destination for boating enthusiasts. With lots of coastline and rivers to explore, renting a boat or booking a boat charter is a great way to take advantage of Connecticut’s waterways. The history of the ports in Connecticut makes it a great place for a boating adventure, and the rivers of Connecticut are fantastic for cruising experiences. Sailing charters are a popular choice, and there’s a large sailing community in Connecticut offering experiences and lessons. Connecticut is also a great travel destination to go fishing or to try water sports, especially during the summer months. In the autumn season, getting out on a boat is also an excellent choice, as it will give you a front-row seat to the spectacular changing colors as the leaves transform into brilliant reds, oranges, and yellows. This is something the northeast of the US is famous for, and seeing it from the deck of a boat makes it even more special.

For active travelers and locals who like to maintain their fitness when out on the water, activities like kayak rentals, stand-up paddleboard rentals, and canoe rentals are all great options in Connecticut. Enjoying the sunshine while paddling yourself around a lake or in the ocean is a fantastic way to exercise when traveling around Connecticut.

    Marco is the perfect captain. Extremely knowledgeable about boats, navigates the waterways with great confidence, and truly loves what he does. The boat is very clean, maintained beautifully, and the day was perfect. I would definitely sail with Marco again. Great experience!

    Captain Dirk is by far the best Captain around! He was extremely flexible and polite. Family and kid friendly. He invited my kids to learn about the boat, pointed out the sites around and made us feel like we were "apart of his crew." His boat was immaculate, very well taken care of. To date, he is the only Captain I've charted with who wore the full captains uniform. I was highly impressed and would recommend and use him again in the future! THANK YOU CAPTAIN DIRK! My family had a fabulous time!

    Great communication and a great day on the water. The kids had a ton of fun tubing on the river and the adults got to relax and talk as Michael took care of everything. He pointed out restaurants and activities for the future as we are new to the area. And we got to see an eagle. Highly recommend this booking

Michael was a genuine and kind host and was so accommodating and made sure we had an amazing time. I highly recommend him and would 100% book with him again. Thank you so much again, Michael!! :-) -Alley

    This was an outstanding boat trip for me and my family. Michael is an amazing host, social and knowledgeable about the area. The boat is clean and well kept. The boat was very spacious. Michale communicated very well and very accommodating to what we wanted to do. I felt very welcomed on his boat as so did my family. We really had a great time. We were out on the river and we did some tubing, swimming, sight seeing and had lunch/dinner at a restaurant right on the water. I would highly recommend this experience you will NOT be dissapointed. Over 5 stars for this experience!
