What to know about renting a boat in California

California— the nationally renowned “Golden State”— is located on the West Coast of the United States. This state is beloved by many travelers and residents because of its beautiful coastline along the Pacific Ocean, which makes it the perfect place to enjoy boating and other ocean activities.

Northern California conjures images of towering redwood forests and breathtaking stretches of coastline in the minds of many, but it is also one of the world’s premier fishing destinations. Its numerous rivers, lakes, and bays provide plenty of ripe territory for fishermen to explore. If you’re not into fishing, there are plenty of options for you to explore the Northern coastline of California too. Sailing, boating, and watersports all have their place on the water in California and beyond, and there are cities that can help you make the best choice on your next boating trip. Try visiting San Francisco, Sacramento, Lake Tahoe, Redding, and Emeryville.

Southern California is one of the most desired vacation destinations in the world. In addition to the appeal of multiple amusement parks, vibrant culture, and the legendary town of Hollywood, the beautiful Pacific Ocean is one of the primary reasons Southern California tops the lists of travelers from all over the globe. Boating is the best way to experience the stunning Pacific coastline, and it’s no surprise that Los Angeles, Orange County, and San Diego County are appealing to boaters and tourists alike.

Interested in freshwater activities? There are endless inlets, marinas, docks, state parks, and beaches to experience and enjoy. Power boats, yacht charters, sailing lessons, jet ski rides, fishing charters, and kayaking are just the a few of the many rentals you can find all over California. There are so many options to select from, so book a boat rental in California and see what the West Coast has to offer!

About California

They do not say “West Coast, Best Coast” for nothing. From the shores of the Pacific Ocean to the Great Salt Lake and the bed of the Colorado River, the West Coast of the United States has a lot to offer in the way of water. The Oregon Trail and Gold Rush of 1850 may have populated the region, but today the abundance of natural wonders and water resources have tourists and locals alike praising the land. California’s most popular destinations are often coastal, such as San Francisco, San Diego, Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, and Monterey.

    Everything was wonderful. Elliott prepared me for the trip and answered all my questions in a timely manner. His first mate for our trip was beyond wonderful. The whole experience was very accommodating. They both made me feel amazing and both were very knowledgeable and helpful. I definitely recommend because it is an amazing experience and a forever memory.

    Captain Nick was very professional, everything we asked him to he accommodated, and when he helped us make it back to harbor without anyone getting too seasick and new what to do to stop the seasickness. Book with him if you want a spacious experience for a first time boat trip or a party where you want to eat drink and prepare to own food, there is room to have people change and shower on board too!

    Amazing day! The boat is pristine and beautiful. The captain and crew were fabulous. You are lucky to be able to experience this in your lifetime. We anchored at Emerald Bay and swam a bit. Absolutely beautiful. Do this. You will be happy.

    We had a great afternoon trip with Elliott. We had originally only planned a three hour tour, but deceived to extend an extra hour and get the sunset. He is tremendously knowledgeable about the Newport area and great tour guide as well as captain. We plan on boating again with him soon.

    Had a blast on the boat. The weather was beautiful and the sunset even better. Our captain was very kind and a great energy to have around. Our favorite part was jumping into the ocean and going fast on the boat. This trip was filled with laughs and smiles. Thankyou.
