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.

    Reed was awesome! We hired Reed to guide us around the harbor during the boat parade and couldn't have asked for a better experience. He was right on time and let us load the boat a bit early so we could get on the water ASAP. He was an exceptional captain. The boat was perfect too. Very clean, and fit our party comfortably. We had such a great time we are already planning our trip next year.

    we have been coming to Tahoe for years and rented from several other places and never had service close to what Jay and team provided. The only reason i hesitate to provide a review is i want to make sure there is availability next year!! Thank you Jay and team for a fabulous experience. See you next year

    8 Passenger Boat for Rent in Bass Lake, California

    Other than a slight miscommunication during drop-off, Mike's service and the boat were awesome! It came fully equipped and we even replaced a tube which was taken or missing off the boat the next morning and when told of the incident, Mike said he would have just driven up another tube for us to use. Now that's service!

    PAIR Yamaha FX and FX SHO Jet Ski Rental in South Lake Tahoe

    Nick was an awesome host. His brother Andrew met us at the launch ramp. Had the life vest. Tanks were full; we had the rental for 8 hours and didn’t even use all the gas. Paid him cash to refill outside the launch ramp. I would definitely rent from him again!

    New 2019 23' 150 HP Tritoon Boat For Rent / Lake Tahoe

    My group and I had a wonderful time using the boat. It was very spacious, had a lot of storage under the seats, and had bluetooth so we could play our own music on board. The boat also came with a three person tube and a wakeboard - we had such a blast using both. We would definitely rent from water wave group again.
