Boat Hire & Yacht Charters in Miami

From its Art Deco District and renown Cuban-infused cuisine to its warm, clear waters, Miami has so much to offer to travelers. One activity that’s always consistently named to lists of things to do in Miami? Hiring a yacht. There’s nothing quite like spending the day relaxing in the ocean breeze and soaking up some rays, and by the time you dock on shore, you’ll see fabulous views of Miami’s famed skyline.

If you’ve been looking for a great place for a boat hire, Miami is a perfect location. With GetMyBoat, you can find over 600 different yacht charters, boat hire, 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 their bucks party and hens 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 hire out on the water.

In addition to yachts, we have jet ski hire, deep sea fishing charters, sea kayaks, party pontoon hire, and surfing lessons available. We can’t wait for you to experience everything Miami has to offer.

7 Reasons to Hire a Boat in Miami

With so many things to do in South Florida, you might be trying to decide between planning a boat hire or spending a day doing something on land.

There are tons of great reasons to book a boat hire in Miami, but here are our top seven.

1. Enjoy the relaxing and therapeutic benefits of being out on the water, which has been known to have a calming and rejuvenating effect on people
2. Get some natural Vitamin D from the sun (though we also recommend broad-spectrum sunscreen)
3. Spend time with friends and family, because it’s a great way to catch up
4. Learn something new, whether it’s seeing how a new-to-you type of watercraft operates or advancing your sailing skills
5. Take a break from electronics and devices for a few hours
6. Spot some interesting wildlife, ranging from sea and ocean birds to dolphins, whales, sharks, and more
7. Cool off during Miami’s hot and humid summer months, or bask in the relative warmth during Florida’s mild winters

Packing List

Once you’re booked, get ready for your excursion! Whether you pack travel-sized items in your luggage or you’re planning to pick up some odds and ends locally, there are a few essentials you should pack into your beach tote for a day offshore:

• Broad-spectrum sunscreen protects against both UVA and UVB rays. Apply at least 20 minutes prior to going outside and reapply every two hours (more frequently if you’re sweating or swimming). While sunbathing feels nice, you don’t want to risk sun damage – and a nasty sunburn can really put a damper on the rest of your trip!
• Sunglasses are a must-have for reducing glare and they can help you avoid wrinkles around your eyes. Polarized ones are a good pick if you have them, since they help with boaters’ fatigue.
• A cover-up and a sun hat are also key, and they let you layer up for lounging or dressing down for a dip in the ocean. Many yachts have sun shades or cabins where you can get out from the sun, but it’s always good to bring a cover-up to be safe.
• Waterproof smartphone cases are a good idea, especially if you’d rather avoid having to replace your phone due to water damage (or losing it altogether in the ocean).

We also recommend downloading our free GetMyBoat mobile app (available on iOS and Android) to stay up-to-date with communication from the boat owner and clarify any details around meeting location, weather, and tips.

Onshore Things to Do in Miami

Besides its warm, humid weather and white sand beaches, Miami is known for its vibrant nightlife, spas, restaurants, and diverse history. Once you’ve docked for the day, we recommend finding some great Latin cuisine; while Cuban seems obvious, there are also incredible Venezuelan, Peruvian, and Colombian restaurants throughout the city. Be sure to hydrate after a day out on the water – sun exposure can be quite dehydrating – especially if you plan to partake in cocktails and dancing in the evening. Another popular activity is to relax and decompress at one of Miami’s many luxury spas for a massage or scrub.

Looking for something a bit more structured? While planning your trip, we’d suggest adding these tours and activities to your list:

• Explore Vizcaya Museum and Gardens
• Take in a Marlins, Canes, or Dolphins game
• Walk the Art Deco District
• Wander through Little Havana
• Check out Wynwood Walls
• Adventure in one of Miami’s state or national parks, like Oleta River State Park or Everglades National Park

    45' Sea Ray Sundancer Yacht Rental In Miami, Florida

    James and Luis we’re great. They sent a text with all instructions a few days prior to boat ride. They provide beverages (wAter, ice and soda ) and snacks on the yacht. The yacht was beautiful more than enough space for a group of 10. We were able to get in the water when we went to the private island. You can connect your phone to the Bluetooth to listen to music. You will enjoy yourself. It also comes with one crew member who will serve drinks and food. You should bring some food because you will get hungry. We brought sub sandwiches. It’s BYOB so bring liquor. You will have a marvelous experience.

    45' Sea Ray Yacht for 13 Guests - Best Value!

    Today’s trip was amazing! We were running a little late and he wasn’t bothered. Right when we arrived he broke down the rules... and we were off in five minutes. He wasn’t in our way whatsoever, answered all our questions and requests, and Hayden (the steward) was perfect delivered all the drinks and water activities! I would definitely recommend this boat/owner!

    Thanks to James for such a fantastic day out on the water. The boat is superb, and James has so much information to share about the key sites and highlights on the coast. My two children loved swimming at a secluded island. Highly recommended.

    Marco is awesome. He greeted us at the dock and spent time making sure we were comfortable with the boat. He was really great at responding before and during the trip. Will definitely use him again!
