    Boating Guide - Long Beach

    What 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.

    Where should I go on my boat rental in Long Beach?

    There are many great boating destinations surrounding Long Beach including:

    • Naples Island. Naples Island will give you a feeling that you’ve been transported to Venice, Italy, with the charming canals and romantic gondola tours.
    • Catalina Island. Book in advance if you’re taking the ferry, or book an overnight boat charter to sail there at your leisure! Some Catalina trips can last several nights, giving you ample time to explore the island and enjoy the special highlights of the island, like scuba diving in the magical kelp forests.
    • The Queen Mary. It’s one of the biggest attractions in Long Beach, a retired 1930’s ocean liner that has been converted into a hotel, with museum and restaurant.
    • Rainbow Harbor. If you want to park your boat at a dock and come ashore to check out shops and restaurants, this is the spot to go in Long Beach.
