    Boat Rental FAQs

    Can you rent a boat for a day?

    Yes, you can rent a boat for a day with GetMyBoat. You can also rent a boat by the hour, half-day, for multiple days, or any duration that owners set on their boat rental listings.

    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.

    What kind of boats can I rent?

    Depending on availability, you can rent anything from a pontoon boat to a motor yacht. GetMyBoat has rental options for every type of boater. We have sailboats, wakeboarding boats, yachts, and party boats all for rent through our easy-to-use platform.

    How can I rent a boat?

    Renting a boat has never been easier thanks to GetMyBoat. It’s simple, just search GetMyBoat by the location you wish to visit, filter the boats based on type and group size, and submit a rental inquiry once you find a boat you like. 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 accommodate your rental times.

    How does GetMyBoat work for Renters?

    Renting a boat is simple and quick with GetMyBoat. You first search for the type of boat you would like to rent by location. You review the boats available for rent in that location and then submit a rental inquiry to the owner of the boat you want to rent. You specify the dates, group size, and duration of the rental. 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.

      37' Four Winns Vista Luxury Yacht in Washington DC! DISCOUNT 🚤 10 GUESTS ⚓️ DMV 🍾 GAS INCLUDED

      Adam was great! He was quick to reply to my request and kept great communication up until the trip. His boat was awesome and he was experienced captain! He definitely has the party boat for the summer. You can soak up sun from the front or chill in the shade in the back. His prices were awesome fair. Highly recommend him for your next boat ride!

      Spacious Luxury Motor Yacht Rental in Washington DC

      Thank you for providing us with a amazing boat, we absolutely loved it. The captain Rick was so nice and kind to our friends/ family. He made my daughter 18th birthday the best! He allowed us to jumó from the top of the boat which was scary at first but my daughter and her friends loved it. We were able to stop somewhere to swim and he gave us extra time because we came late. It was very fun and a good experience. The boat was a 10/10! Will definitely get it again

      Richard and Cpt. Rick were amazing! Cpt. Rick was the perfect captain for my group of friends for my birthday, and Diamond was awesome as well! We had to book last minute because we had someone cancel on us the night before our trip, and they were so gracious and patient with us as first time boaters. Cpt. Rick helped me have a great time in spite of other things that had me stressed, and I’m forever grateful for this wonderful experience.
