Many people can find boat rentals in Alaska, such as powerboats, sailboats, jet boats, kayaks, fishing charters, and even inflatable rafting boats.
Jet boat rentals in Alaska are very popular on many of the state’s rivers. In these locations, like the Yukon River, boats are usually hauled out to the village during the warmer summer months. Sailboats are popular in southeast Alaska if boaters are planning to boat on the Inside Passage. Some sailboat rentals in Alaska can also be found in Prince William Sound around Whittier and Seward. If you are looking for a smaller and more compact way of cruising the waters, then searching for kayak rentals in Alaska might suit your needs. Kayaking and kayak rentals in Alaska are mostly popular in the southeast panhandle, Prince William Sound, and the Kenai Peninsula. There is also a fair amount of kayakers ocean kayaking is done in the Kodiak area, and of course, remote ocean kayaking is possible along the Alaska Peninsula. Inflatable rafts are also popular with the whitewater crowd due to their small size which makes them easily transportable.

Ryan was very easy to work with and the boat was in great condition. We had no issues at all and had a great time out on the water. The price was reasonable for the time we had the boat and drop off/pick up was very easy.
We had an amazing time boating in Resurrection Bay! The boat was in condition and reliable. We were provided with all the fishing gear and caught a lot of halibut and rock fish. Views of the glacier and amazing landscape were beautiful from the boat.
Definitely something for experienced boaters only, but it was awesome! They give you advice on when/where to fish. In Resurrection Bay, so many places to explore. We were able to find a calm cove where we cooked fresh caught salmon and watched a humpback whale feeding right next to us! Super helpful with everything and would definitely rent from them again.
Ryan's boat was fantastic. It was clean and in good shape. He provided all the fishing gear we needed for the fish we wanted to catch. We booked with the captain option and his father in law took us out as the captain. He was very helpful and did just what we wanted. We were looking for a more hands-on/DIY fishing trip, and that's exactly what we got. Having the captain option to handle the boat was great. Ryan was flexible on time/day and willing to move locations due to weather. We will definitely look for Ryan in the listings for any future boat rental needs in Alaska.
Encore was an amazing sailboat in a beautiful area. Kate was very easy to communicate with and very helpful throughout the whole process. The boat is well equipped with everything you will need for a few days out in the bay. We spent both our nights in thumb cove, where we found the anchoring conditions to be the best in the area. Truly beautiful boat and surroundings made for a pristine trip.
We had the most incredible time aboard!! Checking in and out the boat was a breeze and dealing with Nate and Kate was very smooth. The day we were supposed to go out wasn't ideal and Nate offered to change to the following day which was beautiful. We will definitely be back and recommend this company in the future! Thanks again, Dan & Kirsten
