What To Know About Renting a Boat in Seattle
With saltwater to the west and freshwater to the east, Seattle offers a plethora of boating opportunities. A Puget Sound boat rental is one of the best ways to enjoy the stunning nature of the Pacific Northwest. If you’re feeling up for a longer voyage, boat rentals in Seattle give you many opportunities to charter a boat. Cruise the Puget Sound during the week or head up north to the San Juan Islands and the Inside Passage to Alaska. If you’re looking for a day out on the water, you can trailer your boat to larger lakes or rent a powerboat by the hour or by the day. If you don't want to rent or charter a boat on your own, you can also book a boat tour with a group to see more of Seattle and learn about the city from the water. It's a great way to gain a new perspective of a place you're traveling to.
Enjoy sailing a small watercraft or even take a tour in a kayak or canoe on Green Lake and Lake Union to the north, or Lakes Washington and Sammamish inland. Fishing charters in Seattle— a popular activity in the Sound— are also available if you are looking for large catches. And because of its ideal position at the northwest corner of the United States, Seattle has many cruise options available, either going north to Alaska or south to Mexico. It's a great jumping off point for exploring the nature and beauty of the west coast of North America.
Seattle offers a perfect playground for marine animals— and whale watching is an activity that cannot be passed up. Anytime from March to October, you can expect to see either gray whales, orcas, minkes, and humpbacks, not to mention the sea lions, porpoises, and seabirds who also inhabit the area near Seattle. Seeing whales in their natural environment is an experience that cannot be matched by going to a zoo or aquarium. It's the most ecologically responsible and sustainable way to enjoy the beauty of these animals without supporting the cruelty that comes with keeping them in captivity.
For water sports enthusiasts, Seattle is a great place to try something exciting. Book a wakeboarding trip in Seattle or try parasailing to fly over Puget Sound with a parachute. Water sports are a fun way to enjoy the outdoors and get an adrenaline rush during your travels, and GetMyBoat has a lot of options!

GetMyBoat customer reviews for boat rentals in Seattle.
Phenomenal boating experience in Seattle! The Duffy is a great way to see Lake Union and very easy to get to. Joshua’s boat is in great condition, clean and has everything you need for relaxing afternoon on the water. Joshua was very communicative. Thanks again!
We had a family day on the boat to celebrate my birthday. Great boat, great crew, great day and wonderful itinerary (we want around Bainbridge island). The crew gives you a lot of privacy and are there to make us comfortable in every way. We brought our own food and had lunch in the comfortable living quarters and then enjoyed the sun and the boat ride in the sun chairs on the upper deck. It really did feel like having our own boat, but better since we the crew took care of everything. I highly recommend this boat and crew.
As usual all good with the booking with Vitaly. This probably our 4th or 5th time and each experience has always been the same, great communication, on time and great boat for the cruise around Lake Washington. Have another booking in another 2 weeks. If you have been considering booking, don't hesitate! Roger
My girlfriends and I had the best day out on Troy's boat. The Sea Monkey offered a ton of seating options outside and in, spotless kitchen & bathroom with an awesome skipper. I highly recommend the boat and the captain- flawless boating, brunching and bubbles day!
Highly recommend booking with Corey! We had such a great experience and he was very flexible when we were running a bit behind getting to the boat. He was knowledgeable about the area and different sites. The boat was amazing and in great condition! Couldn’t have asked for a better experience!
Corey was great! The boat was beautiful, and Corey was very knowledgeable of the area he took us out to. Overall, this is probably the best value in Seattle, I recommend him to anyone that is looking for a boat rental, and I will definitely book again when I come back into town.
