  • 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?

Yes, you can rent a boat for a day with GetMyBoat. You can also rent a boat by the hour, half-day, 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.

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 or cannot 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.

    MUST SEE!!! BEST PRICES GUARANTEED!! Brand New 21ft Yamaha !! Family Fun Boat in Tampa Bay!

    Adrian was a great captain. We all had fun and it was a wonderful experience. We were a little worried at first because we were not good swimmers but he made us so comfortable and we trusted him to keep us safe. He made sure we were happy and gave us choices to explore the area. We saw a lot of dolphins and it was a perfect day to be out. Thank you, Adrian for a great day!!!

    Carver 60 Motor Yacht Charter for 12 People in Marina del Rey, California

    We honestly could not have asked for a better experience! The crew was top notch from the moment they arrived and greeted us at the dock. Once we got aboard the yacht, the captain explained the safety protocol and then the bartender started making mimosas! Safety first, but drinks second! Also, throughout the trip the crew was so hospitable and on top of things. There was never a dull moment and I can honestly say this was one of the best experiences I’ve had renting boats:)

    BEST OF 2019 AND SUPER OWNER AWARDS! Spacious 25' Bentley Encore on Lake Travis!

    Austin was awesome! From all of the boat rental experiences I’ve had, Austin was by far the best one. He was extremely accomodating and patient with me and my friends. The boat was clean, well maintained, totally set up and ready to go. I highly recommend Austin, and will for sure rent with him again.

    Double Decker Pontoon in Mission Bay

    Would definitely recommend to all of my family and friends!! Justin was very accommodating to a last minute reservation we had made and worked with me on getting something booked. Once there we had Captain Anthony and he made sure we had a great experience. He anchored for us and let us use the paddle board that was provided with the boat and threw out the Lilly pad for all of us to hang out and swim. This experience exceeded my expectations and was well worth the price! Overall, such a fun and great experience we are already planning our next event on one of Justin’s boats !

    38' Hunter 376 Cruising Monohull in Annapolis, Maryland, USA

    Our group of five adults had an EXCELLENT time on Alberto and Grace's boat. The vessel is beautiful and the hosts are gracious and communicative. We brought lite food and drinks to celebrate a birthday. Parking at the dock was simple and breezy. Will be doing this again! The reviews don't lie. Just book it!

    Beneteau 40 Cruising Sloop in Marina del Rey with Captain Mark

    Mark, the boat, and the experience is fantastic. He’s very kind, communication is clear and on point, and the in boat experience is the best we’ve had. It was my father’s dream to be on a sailing boat in the Pacific and Mark made the experience fantastic.
