EVERYTHING you need to know before renting a boat in Long Beach

Long Beach boat rentals offer tons of fun for tourists and locals looking to get out on the water. You can charter a boat with a USCG-licensed captain or book a self-driving boat option. These are great boating options if you don't have boating experience or don't want the responsibility of driving a boat. A captain is also a great way to get the insider, local look at Long Beach.

When searching for a boat rental in Long Beach you can customize the experience to fulfill all your boat day desires. Include services such as a catered meal, water toys, fishing gear, or equipment for watersports, like stand-up paddleboards. Don’t forget to make a special playlist of music you want to listen to on your boat day - most boats available to rent have Bluetooth-enabled speakers. It’s so easy to find and rent a boat in Long Beach with GetMyBoat, and you have a huge range of boat types to choose from, with prices to fit any budget.

If you're seeking the classic boating experience or want to venture out from the bay, rent a powerboat or motor yacht. You’ll cover a lot of the coastline, venturing to Seal Beach or Belmont Shore. If you don't have a lot of time or want more of an adrenaline-fueled experience on the water, rent a jet ski. A SeaDoo will give you all the power you need to cruise solo or with your travel partner.

See dolphins, whales, and sea lions playing in the waves when you cruise with your family on a boat rental from Long Beach. It’s one of the top reasons to rent a boat during a trip to Southern California. Seeing wildlife on the water is a magical experience to have for kids and adults alike, and being in the fresh air instead of a crowded aquarium makes it even more special.

Sailing charters in Long Beach are a highly sought after tourist experience. Booking a catamaran with a USCG-licensed captain will give you the perfect opportunity to host a boat party with a larger group. Another popular sailboat type to charter is a schooner, which will give you the luxury yachting experience in Long Beach as you glide through the wind along the southern California coast.

    Nick is awesome, and this is such a cool boat! There are 3 areas to hang out (plus the bedroom) but we mostly hung out in the front. Nick and Brian were so accommodating and honestly so relaxed. They were knowledgeable about the area and have a great sense of humor. Would definitely go out on the water with them again!

    Highly recommend a boat trip! I had a Christmas & birthday party on a boat. I think getting on a boat is the way we can make the most of SoCal’s nice weather especially during this quarantine times! The captain was so thoughtful and nice, the ocean view was amazing! Definitely worth it. I’m planning another trip!

    Captain Max and the Buschman’s Friend made our Sunday sunset sail an absolutely mellow and vibrant experience. 10/10 recommended ⛵️✨🙏 The directions were super easy to follow and Max was so pleasant and respectful of our vibe, he is an amazing host. Gifted us photos, provided a Bose speaker for music, blankets/pillows for comfortable lounging and we BYOB and snacks (opened all items and threw trash away beforehand so the wind didn’t blow anything into the ocean) which made our 2 hour sail a dream.
