What 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.

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

    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!

    Bern had great communication throughout the entire process and gave us clear instructions on how to arrive and navigate to the dock on the date of the itinerary. He promptly answered all of our questions, and also provided great conversation. He offered lots of equipment with the booking and guided us with insightful recommendations to make sure we could get the most out of our trip. This was an excellent experience and we will definitely be picking Bern again for our next trip.

    Book this Florida Style 39' Midnight Express Boat

    Our experience with Milton and his boat was a 10 out of 10! It can’t possibly get better than this experience. The boat was spacious and sparkling clean and Covid safe. The sound system is incredible. Milton can set up a table on one side if you need an area for food. Loved the privacy this boat offers. The seating areas (there are 2) are slightly below where the captain sits. Communication prior to our excursion was seamless. I would say up to 8 people can fit comfortably between the 2 seating areas. Can’t wait to treat ourselves to this experience again!

    Bareboat charter sailing catamaran for parties / events in Long Beach

    This was an outstanding trip. David was the kindest, most easygoing captain who made my event that much more enjoyable! He helped take the best photos/videos of us and worked with such professionalism that I cannot wait to book with him again. The vessel was in great condition and comfortably fit my party of 9! Great sound system with speakers you can hear on all sides of the boat. Highly recommend booking this trip!

    41' Hatteras Luxury Yacht in Huntington Beach, California

    Captain Doug & Donna made us so welcomed and it was a magical 4 hours on the water during sunset in the harbor. I definitely want to come back again when the weather’s warmer and water’s calmer to do an ocean cruise. I cannot express enough how happy we were to have picked this boat. Thank you for the experience!!
