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 was such a gracious captain. We were a group of four adults just relaxing on the boat cruising around. Marco was very polite, accommodating and knowledgeable. I highly recommend booking his boat.

    Dirk was very patient with my little toddlers who were difficult to say the least. He was a great guide. He even let our 5 year old captain the boat for his birthday. Highly recommend to anyone looking for some fun on the water.

    Charter Sailboat Cruiser in Stamford, Connecticut

    Marco was a wonderful captain and we had a great time watching fireworks from Todd's Point on the water. He piloted the ship safely and got us "front row seats" for the show. He also was mindful of other boaters in the area and got us out before the show ended so we weren't stuck or in danger. This was a surprise for my partner and Marco made it so worth the wait to reveal that we were going on an adventure in this beautifully renovated, fully equipped and well maintained ship. Would do this trip over 100 times! I highly recommend Marco for anyone that wants a safe, comfortable, and truly special time on the water.

    We had a great day out on the water with Nate! He was very flexible with starting a bit later due to the weather and had great communication overall. He and his crew are very kind and professional. The boat is great and this is a must-do while you are in the Hamptons!
