What to Know About Boat to Hire in Seattle

With saltwater to the west and freshwater to the east, Seattle offers a plethora of boating opportunities. A Puget Sound boat hire is one of the best ways to enjoy the stunning nature of the Pacific Northwest. If you’re feeling up for a longer voyage, boat hires in Seattle give you many opportunities to charter a boat. Cruise the Puget Sound during the week or head up north to the San Juan Islands and the Inside Passage to Alaska. If you’re looking for a day out on the water, you can trailer your boat to larger lakes or hire a powerboat by the hour or by the day. If you don't want to hire or charter a boat on your own, you can also book a boat tour with a group to see more of Seattle and learn about the city from the water. It's a great way to gain a new perspective of a place you're traveling to. 

Enjoy sailing a small watercraft or even take a tour in a kayak or canoe on Green Lake and Lake Union to the north, or Lakes Washington and Sammamish inland. Fishing charters in Seattle— a popular activity in the Sound— are also available if you are looking for large catches. And because of its ideal position at the northwest corner of the United States, Seattle has many cruise options available, either going north to Alaska or south to Mexico. It's a great jumping off point for exploring the nature and beauty of the west coast of North America. 

Seattle offers a perfect playground for marine animals— and whale watching is an activity that cannot be passed up. Anytime from March to October, you can expect to see either gray whales, orcas, minkes, and humpbacks, not to mention the sea lions, porpoises, and seabirds who also inhabit the area near Seattle. Seeing whales in their natural environment is an experience that cannot be matched by going to a zoo or aquarium. It's the most ecologically responsible and sustainable way to enjoy the beauty of these animals without supporting the cruelty that comes with keeping them in captivity. 

For water sports enthusiasts, Seattle is a great place to try something exciting. Book a wakeboarding trip in Seattle or try parasailing to fly over Puget Sound with a parachute. Water sports are a fun way to enjoy the outdoors and get an adrenaline rush during your travels, and GetMyBoat has a lot of options!

    Charter a 66' Monte Fino Luxury Italian Yacht in Seattle - Book now for 4th of July, San Juans, Andrews Bay, SeaFair

    I rented Tracy and Scott’s boat to host a corporate team outing and it exceeded everyone’s expectations. I was a little hesitant renting from this site as it was new for me. Wow, I’m glad I did! The boat was incredible, they were very safe and professional with the right amount of fun :) The boat had speakers throughout so we were able to keep the music going. There were multiple seating areas where we had different drinks/food/games set to. It was perfect! My colleagues raved for days about how much fun they had. I would highly recommend Tracy and Scott and can’t wait to rent from them again in the future. Thank you Tracy and Scott for a wonderful time!
