  • 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.

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.

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.

    Matthew gave us a wonderful tour on his boat. He is knowledgeable about the area and took us to some stunning locations we never would have visited otherwise. His boat was spotlessly clean, he was conscientious of Covid safe practices ie face mask & social distancing. Touring with a local on the water is a must-do when visiting the area. I highly recommend a tour with Matt!

    Charter 55ft Irwin sailboat In Marina del Rey, California. PLEASE READ THE PRICES UNDER "READ FULL DESCRIPTION" BEFORE MAKING AN INQUIRY!

    Great day on the ocean. We wanted a relaxing trip for our family. Nothing to intense for our small kids, who had never been on the ocean. We toured the marina, saw some sea lions, did paddle board and kayak and listened to great music. Captain Stephen was an easy conversationalist and is great with kids too!

    We had an awesome time on the boat. Our originally date and time was postponed due to hurricane Isaias that closed off marina. However, Jakub was communicating with us all the time and gave us an option during the weekday. The boat is clean and easy to navigate. Our family enjoyed it!

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

    Austin and Zach has been super kind, patience, and accommodating through out this whole process. Due to unfortunate circumstances, we had to change and shift around some things a few times but it was a pleasure to work with Austin. He made this so easy with prompt respond and that lifted a whole lot of stress from planning for me. We had an AMAZING time with Zach as our captain. He was an absolute gem. Really looking forward to work with them again in the future!

    We had a great time with Matthew. He gave us a great tour of the area. We really enjoyed Rooker island. He was very knowledgable about the waters and specific questions we all had. Will definitely do it again when we come back to town! Thanks Greg S.

    Me and 3 girls went on a day trip to a sandbar. We hate to reschedule because of the hurricane and the communication was great. Boat was as advertised and launch was smooth. The high lift was super busy as it was 9am on a Saturday, and the 30 minute we lost was added to our trip time which was really appreciated. HIGHLY RECOMMEND
