EVERYTHING you need to know before renting a boat in Long Beach

Long Beach boat rentals offer tons of fun for tourists and locals looking to get out on the water. You can charter a boat with a USCG-licensed captain or book a self-driving boat option. These are great boating options if you don't have boating experience or don't want the responsibility of driving a boat. A captain is also a great way to get the insider, local look at Long Beach.

When searching for a boat rental in Long Beach you can customize the experience to fulfill all your boat day desires. Include services such as a catered meal, water toys, fishing gear, or equipment for watersports, like stand-up paddleboards. Don’t forget to make a special playlist of music you want to listen to on your boat day - most boats available to rent have Bluetooth-enabled speakers. It’s so easy to find and rent a boat in Long Beach with GetMyBoat, and you have a huge range of boat types to choose from, with prices to fit any budget.

If you're seeking the classic boating experience or want to venture out from the bay, rent a powerboat or motor yacht. You’ll cover a lot of the coastline, venturing to Seal Beach or Belmont Shore. If you don't have a lot of time or want more of an adrenaline-fueled experience on the water, rent a jet ski. A SeaDoo will give you all the power you need to cruise solo or with your travel partner.

See dolphins, whales, and sea lions playing in the waves when you cruise with your family on a boat rental from Long Beach. It’s one of the top reasons to rent a boat during a trip to Southern California. Seeing wildlife on the water is a magical experience to have for kids and adults alike, and being in the fresh air instead of a crowded aquarium makes it even more special.

Booking a catamaran with a USCG-licensed captain will give you the perfect opportunity to host a boat party with a larger group. Another popular sailboat type to charter is a schooner, which will give you the luxury yachting experience in Long Beach as you glide through the wind along the southern California coast.

    48' Luxury Yacht in Long Beach, California

    Nick and his crew were amazing and the set up of his boat is perfect for any type of party or outing where guests can either choose to be above board or below board with ease of access and a comfortable flow. The boat is beautiful and clean and comfortable. We hosted our daughter 16th birthday party on this boat and the girls had a blast! During the day it was sunny and beautiful and the girls could sit outside but when it started to get cold at sunset it was easy for everybody to relocate downstairs where was just as comfortable and fun! We had a blast on the boat and highly recommend Nick and his beautiful boat!!

    Nick and his crew is the best!!! Our party of 8 had an amazing experience celebrating New Years on this boat. From the beginning with contacting Nick and meeting him at the dock, to the very end, our experience with him was seamless. He is super friendly and experienced and we had the best 3 hours out at sea. Also his boat is even bigger/prettier than the pictures - highly recommend!!

    We chartered this boat for our daughters 18th birthday party and it was amazing. The boat was nicer than the pictures show, and the captain was awesome. The boat had plenty of room for everyone and had a great area to set up the food.
