    Frequently Asked Questions

    Can you rent a boat in NJ without a license?

    You must have a boating safety certificate to operate a boat in New Jersey. You can obtain a rental certification the day of your boat rental, but it's a good idea to complete a boating safety course to earn a certificate prior to your boat rental day. You will also need a license to operate a boat on non-tidal waters in New Jersey. If you do not have boating experience nor a certificate — book a captained boat charter in New Jersey. This way, you can have a licensed professional take care of the navigation while you relax onboard with your friends and family.
