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.
Jason and crew was amazing. The Yacht is bigger in person than I thought. I was concerned having 12 people onboard but it was not an issue at all. Jason literally serves you for the time you have the boat. We never felt rushed at any moment.
If you’re looking for a great boat day then book with AJ. His boat was PERFECT and the captain was so nice and knowledgeable. AJ was so communicative and worked with our schedule requests and went above and beyond for us. The boat was beautiful and so spacious. We will absolutely be booking again anytime we are in south Florida again :)
Beautiful boat, super clean & cold A/C inside new born. Jason was awesome & down to earth kind of guy. Docked up for kids to swim, went fishing & cruise slow to take in sights. 👍
Great charter. Rained some but the boat setup allowed us to still see and do everything. Captain was great and we enjoyed the trip a lot.
Jason and his crew mate were 15/10 AMAZING. We came for a bachelorette party and their accommodations were great. Absolutely no complaints - we had a blast!!!
Great trip out to the islands to take my family fishing. Captain was very knowledgeable and had great communication setting up the outing. The ship was very comfortable and spacious, service was excellent and my family had a great time. An absolute steal at the price can’t recommend him enough.
