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.

How long is a half-day boat rental?

    This was a wonderful experience. Jim, the captain, ensured our celebration was meaningful and aligned to our desires and expectations. the boat is perfect for celebrating in a single location (enough seating to gather together) as well as jumping and swimming in the ocean.

    Bowrider Rental in New-Port Beach

    Had an awesome family outing on Nassar’s boat! He was extremely patient with directions when I got a bit lost on my way to the dock and was great about explaining areas and places to explore with the boat. The whole family (+2 dogs haha) had a blast and we will definitely rent from Nassar again!

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

    We had a wonderful time sailing with Captain Alberto and his wife Grace! My husband and I and two of our friends went for an afternoon cruise as a birthday celebration. The boat was beautiful and they were friendly and gracious hosts. I was interested in learning more about sailing and Captain Alberto (an experienced sailing instructor) was a great teacher. Captain Alberto was also very responsive and helpful when we were making the arrangements for the trip. We hope to have an opportunity to do this again, and highly recommend a trip with Captain Alberto!
