Boat Hire & Yacht Rentals 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

    Book the Beautiful Sea Ray Motor Yacht in Miami, Florida

    Alejandro was phenomenal! We took a ride past celebrity houses and islands while Alejandro pointed out cool places. We dropped anchor, relaxed in the water with music and enjoyed time off the boat. He was very knowledgeable, charming and friendly.

    Party In Style On 51ft Sea Ray flybridge Yacht In Miami, Minimum 4 hours

    Wow!!! Not sure how to express the time we had on this boat with Kevin and Jimena!! They are so much fun and catered to anything you needed. My whole group felt spoiled and had an amazing time. Can’t wait to come back. If you are thinking of booking JUST BOOK. you don’t regret it.

    Party in style on The 52' Sea Ray Flybridge Yacht Rental. Minimum 4 hours

    Ximena is an excellent host and you will be well taken care of if you chose her experience! It was such a nice way to get some awesome views of Miami and enjoy the water. I highly recommend Ximena and her yacht. I would just caution those who are renting a boat for the first time that there is a separate fee to pay for the captain and that the captain fee is not included when you first book the rental. You pay that fee the day of your boat trip (oversight on my part).

    Miami Cruise On A Beautiful 50' Sea Ray Sedan Bridge Motor Yacht

    From the moment you meet Felix and his wife you will fall in love with them. I loved every moment that I spent aboard their vessel. They were very sweet and made our experience so surreal. PLEASE don't book with anyone else. The entire time was AMAZING! Iris serves you alcohol and food (if you have) the whole time making you feel like royalty. And they also gave us a complimentary bottle of champagne for our birthday celebration! Look no further.... book with them for memories you will never forget....
