Houseboat Rentals in Florida

Florida is a boating and warm weather enthusiast’s dream spot, with over 660 miles of beaches and almost 1,200 miles of coastline. Instead of trying to plan your hotel or homestay in proximity to the coast, why not sleep right on the water? Houseboat rentals in Florida are a great way to maximize your stay, and you can find everything from classically designed houseboats to ultra-modern, luxe floating condos.

While most people think of stationary houseboats permanently docked in a community, you can find nontraditional houseboat rentals on GetMyBoat too. We call them “sleep aboards,” and they can be any vessel - permanently docked or movable - that can accommodate people overnight in cabins. So you’ll see everything from motor yachts to floating homes to sailing charters available as sleep aboards. Try the houseboat life for a few nights or a few months – the choice is yours.

Many Florida houseboat rentals offer luxury amenities including soaking tubs, waterfall showers, hot tubs, flat-screen HDTVs, and helicopter landing pads. On GetMyBoat, several of our houseboat owners and charter operators offer experiences – take sailing lessons and go snorkeling by day, and enjoy local fish and relaxation on the vessel. We make it easy for people to find and book houseboat rentals in Florida’s freshwater and saltwater regions.

While houseboat rentals are in top demand in Florida, there are dozens of other on-the-water activities to pair with a stay on the water. When you’re not being lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves or the gentle bobbing of the water, plan some excursions to take advantage of Florida’s great weather.

- Go snorkeling.
- Plan a day exploring one of Florida’s 12 national parks, monuments, seashores, and other protected lands.
- Get scuba certified.
- Try sea kayaking.
- Book a standup paddleboard rental.
- Visit Orlando for a day of fun at Disney World and Universal Studios.
- Go wildlife watching.

    Captain Ed was SO incredible! He made our family’s first boating experience out of this world! He was super knowledgeable, comforting, understanding, and engaging. He showed us the sites, taught me and my kids the ins and outs of sailing, and was so hospitable. If we were stranded at sea, we would TOTALLY want captain Ed there. Thank god we weren’t, wanna know why?? BECAUSE CAPTAIN ED IS THE BEST! Woot

    Look no further -- book Ed for your next trip! Not only is his boat wonderful (great, spacious front area to enjoy the breeze and sea, lovely interior space for a break from the sun), but he is also so sweet and accommodating. Ed communicated with us from start to finish about everything we needed to know -- from how to get to the dock to restaurant/neighborhood recommendations for a bite afterwards. Also provided us with ice and different water toys/floats for us to lounge in the water with. 10000/10 experience, great man!!

    Parker was an exceptional captain! The route that he took was beyond scenic and the boat was simply stunning! We had the most memorable time and hope to be back to cruise with Parker on this boat in the future!

    Ed was so great! He took us to the exact spots that we wanted and made the whole day feel as easy as possible. We had so much fun. He taught our son about boating and have us a lot of fun facts about Miami! Best day of the trip so far.

    Wow - what can I say about Ed. He was in constant communication with us from day one until the day we arrived, answering all of our questions and confirming everything we needed. Not only is the catamaran gorgeous, the entire boat ride was amazing!! We didn't want to get off! I even saw Ed dancing a little bit in the back of the boat, that's how great the party was. Our group of 17 fit very comfortably and Ed got our group picture:) Thank you so much for making my bachelorette party so special!!

    We went for my bachelorette trip! We had an awesome time and it was big enough for 11 of us! Would definitely recommend, especially if you have a big group! Also Parker was very accommodating and fun. He made us feel at home on the yacht!
