  • Ask the captain if gas is included in the price of your trip. Some owners include gas in the price and some don't, so be sure to ask.

Boat Rental FAQs

Can you rent a boat for a day?

How much does it cost to rent a boat for a day?

The cost depends on the type of boat you want to rent. A pontoon boat rental can start as low as $200 a day and for something more luxurious like a motor yacht rental the cost can increase to $5,000 a day.

Do you need a boat license to rent a boat?

No, you do not need a license to rent a boat. With GetMyBoat you can rent a boat that includes a licensed captain so that you can enjoy your time on the water. If you want to drive the boat yourself, depending on the specific location you will need to at the very least have a Boating Safety Certificate.

Boat owners will respond with a custom offer and you can confirm and pay for the rental all through the website.

How long is a half-day boat rental?

Typically a half-day boat rental is any rental duration that lasts 4 hours. Boat owners usually like to split the day into two rentals, one in the morning for 4 hours and then a second for the later part of the day. Through GetMyBoat you can specify what timeframe you would like to reserve and the owner will let you know if they can or cannot accommodate your rental times.

How does GetMyBoat work for Renters?

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.

    45' Sea Ray Sundancer up to 12 guests as Low as $ 275 per hr - water toys included: water carpet, paddle board, floating noodles, goggles..! Very clean and well maintained Yacht!

    This was an amazing experience. 5 star, clean, and well maintained yatch. James coordinated everything well and Luis our captain was awesome. He gave us a tour of Miami, the history of islands and properties. Luis was courteous and catered to us the entire trip. I will definitely book again with this crew.

    BEST experience! They were so welcoming and friendly as soon as we showed up. They gave us our space on the boat and helped with anything we needed! The jetski was broken for our trip, but Jorge was SO kind and gave us $100 back on the trip for the "inconvenience"! Even without the jetski, we had so much fun hanging in the water, laying out on top of the boat, and cooling off in the cabin! Cannot say enough about this experience!!

    We had a great time riding with Henry! he took us on a wonderful tour and he was laid back. We will definitely book again next time I am in the area. Henry was also prompt at keeping in touch and waited patiently with us for our friends to arrive to the dock location. Thank you

    James, and our captain Luis were incredible. The boat was absolutely beautiful, and clean as can be upon our arrival. As we went along Luis continuously went out of his way to make sure we were having an amazing time. Helping make drinks, food, clean up, and telling us all about the best local spots, providing a water carpet and paddle board. Once we got back James was welcoming and happy to hear we had a great day. I felt like we made new friends today! I know exactly who I am booking with for next time. Don’t hesitate, book today!

    6 PASSENGERS MAX! EVERYTHING INCLUDED!

    Marcel is a cool dude. From the moment we stepped on the boat until departure he made sure we were safe but had the best time. This was the highlight of my sister birthday trip. This was the best ending of our vacation. Book him for the best ride of your life.

    Captained Charter this 36' C & C Cruising Monohull in Chicago, Illinois

    We had a wonderful time sailing with Nijole and her husband Remus (I probably spelled that wrong, apologies!). Lake Michigan and views of Chicago are stunning, we had perfect weather, and the boat and her crew were wonderful. Highly recommended, especially as a somewhat "physically distanced" option in these times.
