What to know about renting a boat in California

California— the nationally renowned “Golden State”— is located on the West Coast of the United States. This state is beloved by many travelers and residents because of its beautiful coastline along the Pacific Ocean, which makes it the perfect place to enjoy boating and other ocean activities.

Northern California conjures images of towering redwood forests and breathtaking stretches of coastline in the minds of many, but it is also one of the world’s premier fishing destinations. Its numerous rivers, lakes, and bays provide plenty of ripe territory for fishermen to explore. If you’re not into fishing, there are plenty of options for you to explore the Northern coastline of California too. Sailing, boating, and watersports all have their place on the water in California and beyond, and there are cities that can help you make the best choice on your next boating trip. Try visiting San Francisco, Sacramento, Lake Tahoe, Redding, and Emeryville.

Southern California is one of the most desired vacation destinations in the world. In addition to the appeal of multiple amusement parks, vibrant culture, and the legendary town of Hollywood, the beautiful Pacific Ocean is one of the primary reasons Southern California tops the lists of travelers from all over the globe. Boating is the best way to experience the stunning Pacific coastline, and it’s no surprise that Los Angeles, Orange County, and San Diego County are appealing to boaters and tourists alike.

Interested in freshwater activities? There are endless inlets, marinas, docks, state parks, and beaches to experience and enjoy. Power boats, yacht charters, sailing lessons, jet ski rides, fishing charters, and kayaking are just the a few of the many rentals you can find all over California. There are so many options to select from, so book a boat rental in California and see what the West Coast has to offer!

About California

They do not say “West Coast, Best Coast” for nothing. From the shores of the Pacific Ocean to the Great Salt Lake and the bed of the Colorado River, the West Coast of the United States has a lot to offer in the way of water. The Oregon Trail and Gold Rush of 1850 may have populated the region, but today the abundance of natural wonders and water resources have tourists and locals alike praising the land. California’s most popular destinations are often coastal, such as San Francisco, San Diego, Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, and Monterey.

    Cruise In Style On Roomy Sailboat - 36' Catalina

    I had a friend visiting from out of town and booked a 4-hour sunset sail with Jared for our group of six. Jared was wonderful in communication, planning and as a captain and a human. He made the experience for us super fun, took great pictures from us and was an aware and awesome captain taking great care of us. I can't wait to book my next sail with him.

    Jared was a phenomenal captain! His boat was comfortable and very well equipped! We were able to bring our own food and drinks and he provided pillows/blankets. He was very knowledgeable of the best sailing routes and was an amazing conversationalist! I could not recommend him enough!

    Excellent experience! Captain Jared took my boyfriend and I out for the day for a half day trip and we had the best time! He was great, very professional, really fun and made sure we had a great time. He gave us some pointers on sailing which was fun too! This was a birthday gift for my boyfriend and he said it was one of his best gifts ever! Thanks Jared for a truly memorable experience! We can’t wait to do it again!
