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.
GetMyBoat customer reviews for Boat Rentals worldwide.
Captain Alberto was such an amazing host and captain! He and his wife were wonderful hosts, and made our trip even more amazing. We had such a great time and can not wait to go back again for another "girls weekend" or with our family and friends. We will be recommending Captain Alberto to everyone we know!
Jessie and Mike were gracious hosts and capable mariners! Had a lovely day on the water to Catalina, with a brief stop in crowded Avalon and then a tour of the private island coves. Saw whales and dolphins and Mike took his time to find and re-find the wildlife. Highly recommend!
This was an amazing way to spend the morning on the water. Greg was obviously a great sailor and able to handle his 37' boat by himself. He was full of knowledge about the area and we loved hearing all the fun facts about the city of Chicago.
Great hosts, absolutely a pleasure. Everything was dialed in and explained perfectly for your Average;). Thanks again and will definitely be booking again soon! Great people to deal with, wouldn’t turn anywhere else. Dialed. In.

Our experience couldn't have been better! Frank was super communicative leading up to our trip and went out of his way to ensure we had a great time. From helping us with our bags, to loading up the cooler on his boat with ice and our food, to taking us to the perfect "chill spot" to float on the raft he let us use, it was a wonderful day.
Steve was amazing and an attentive captain! The boat itself was an amazing way to spend a lazy sunny Sunday floating beside the Toronto islands and enjoying some bubbles! The most comfortable journey with a superb host!
