Miami and its surrounding waters draw huge numbers of yachters each year, as well as being a popular jumping-off point for cheap boar rental excursions in the wider Florida region.

Nestled at the state’s southeastern tip, the city’s pristine coastal waters and year-round sunshine have ensured its status as one of the world’s most enticing yachting destinations. With prestigious yacht events taking place in and around the city each year, there’s already a well-established yachting infrastructure here. As a result, those shopping around for a yacht rental are often spoilt for choice. To help you dig through the (sea)weeds, we’ve done the research so you don’t have to and picked out three companies that we’d recommend for boat rentals in Miami.

Click & Boat

A leading boat hire company, click & Boat offer more than 40,000 vessels for rental worldwide. A collaborative platform based on sharing and trust, owners can create a free listing for their boat by adding pictures, a description, a price, and some advice about the sailing area. Renters can then contact them directly via the online messaging service to ask any questions, as well as view feedback from previous renters. Bareboat rental are the cheapest option, but you can also have a captain onboard for additional cost. In Miami, there are over 100 boat rentals available, with prices starting as low as $100 for 4 hours, before fees. Many boat owners also provide water sports equipment for your rental, and there are even party boat, pontoon boat and speed boat options, too.
