Things to consider for your boat rental or charter.

  • Ask the captain to help you plan an itinerary including places to visit and the time needed to get there.
  • 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?

Renting a boat is simple and quick with GetMyBoat. You first search for the type of boat you would like to rent by location.

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.

    2018 Yamaha 242 Limited SE boat rental in South Lake Tahoe

    If you are renting at Lake Tahoe, rent from James. I guarantee you will be pleased beyond your expectations. He brought the boat to a convenient boat dock, gassed up outside of marina to save us money, entrusted his beautiful boat to us, provided all water toys we needed, had GPS so we didn't get lost, gave much needed insights about boat and lake, but was casual and relaxed. Our family is so grateful to him. Beautiful boat and just a nice guy.

    EVERYTHING INCLUDED! NO HIDDEN FEES! BEST IN MIAMI!

    As we got to the boat, the thunder and rain started full force. They were kind enough to let us reschedule at a moment notice. Really top notch service. Boat was clean with music, cooler, ice, and water. Will be using them again and recommending to friends!

    😎 Cruise In Style On Roomy Sailboat ⛵

    Jared is the best captain and host! It was an amazing experience. I highly recommend his boat. We had a small group of 4 and spent a full day out at sea and it was well worth it. We saw so many dolphins and seals along the way. He also has a paddle board and kayak, so he brought us to a fun little spot where we could go out to paddle board or sunbathe and relax. We'll definitely be back for another boat adventure with Jared!

    BEST OF 2019 AND SUPER OWNER AWARDS! Spacious 25' Bentley Encore on Lake Travis!

    Austin, customer service and response time to messages is beyond exceptional. If he is available don’t even look at any other boat services. I tried 8 other boats and he was the first to respond within minutes and he was consistent throughout. Never heard back from any of the other boat companies, but it didn’t matter I am not sure how it could get any better than having Austin as a boat captain

    I had so much fun on my birthday all thanks to Jared for being an awesome host. He was very helpful right when I booked the trip he made everything easy. He communicated very well, answered all my questions and I never felt any stress at all. My husband and friends had a blast and at the end of the trip, it was all good vibes.

    Captained Charter this 36' C & C Cruising Monohull in Chicago, Illinois

    Nijole and her husband were very kind and caring and made the experience worthwhile. Unfortunately we did have to cut our charter short due to motion sickness but they were very accommodating with helping me feel better and returning to shore. Would definitely recommend
