If you’ve been looking for a great place for a boat rental, Miami is a perfect location. With GetMyBoat, you can find over 600 different yacht rentals, boat rentals, and on-the-water experiences.
Plus, many boat owners also offer extras like lunch or dinner onboard, jet skis, sea kayaks, and other amenities to add to your trip. We’ve also helped people book bachelor and bachelorette parties, destination weddings, milestone birthdays, anniversary trips, and honeymoon excursions. We would recommend finding a captained charter unless you or someone in your group has the experience and licensing to take a bareboat rental out on the water.
In addition to yachts, we have Miami jet ski rentals, deep sea fishing charters, sea kayaks, Miami pontoon rentals, and surfing lessons available. We can’t wait for you to experience everything Miami has to offer.

If you’re hoping to have a float day in addition to your boat day, check the boat listing’s description and ask the boat captain or owner if they have floating toys that are included before confirming your booking.
Awesome experience. Wish we booked more hours the kids enjoyed the water. We booked perfect timing as the sun was setting perfect views. The kids also got to drive the boat a bit and they really enjoyed. Would book again. Leo was very accommodating.
Carmen was truly incredible. From the second we got on to the second we got dropped off he made sure to accommodate us all. He added great energy to our experience and would highly recommend using Carmen if your looking to rent a boat.
Thank you Julian, Chris & Dana for an amazing day!!! Weather was gloomy during our trip but Chris had all the spots figured out to avoid the rain as much as we could! Look forward to our next trip to book with Julian again!!! Amazing experience and crew made it that much better!!!
Marcelo was great! There was a double booking incident that happened but he was able to find me another boat just as great for the same date and time. He was very quick at replying and communicating. Definitely would recommend him and would book with him again!
We absolutely loved our experience on this rental- the captain and first mate were wonderful (thank you Leo and Allison!), the amenities were great, and our entire trip from departure to return could not have been more beautiful. Our only regret is not booking for more hours- seriously, you could spend all day on this boat! Thank you so much, we look forward to renting with you again.
If you want to have a GREAT time, please book with James. This boat was extremely clean and was the perfect size for my party of 8. The sound system was awesome, the service was absolutely amazing from start to finish and no way I could've had a better time. Our captain, Cristina, was absolutely amazing. She knew her stuff and gave us the best tour of Miami's mansions. We also had more than enough time at the sand bar where all the other boats were. It was absolutely the most perfect day and it was made possible by James. Communication from beginning to end was phenomenal, he talked me through every step of the way and answered any questions I had promptly and clear. We booked this boat for a bachelorette party and it was the most fun. Book this boat, you won't regret it!!! :)
