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

    BEST experience! They were so welcoming and friendly as soon as we showed up. They gave us our space on the boat and helped with anything we needed! The jetski was broken for our trip, but Jorge was SO kind and gave us $100 back on the trip for the "inconvenience"! Even without the jetski, we had so much fun hanging in the water, laying out on top of the boat, and cooling off in the cabin! Cannot say enough about this experience!!

    James, and our captain Luis were incredible. The boat was absolutely beautiful, and clean as can be upon our arrival. As we went along Luis continuously went out of his way to make sure we were having an amazing time. Helping make drinks, food, clean up, and telling us all about the best local spots, providing a water carpet and paddle board. Once we got back James was welcoming and happy to hear we had a great day. I felt like we made new friends today! I know exactly who I am booking with for next time. Don’t hesitate, book today!

    Marcel is a cool dude. From the moment we stepped on the boat until departure he made sure we were safe but had the best time. This was the highlight of my sister birthday trip. This was the best ending of our vacation. Book him for the best ride of your life.

    Ximena and Kevin are absolutely amazing! The yacht is gorgeous and extremely comfortable. Kevin is so laid-back and not only knowledgable and professional, but was great with the kids! We had an absolutely amazing time and will be back. Ximena was attentive, kind and such a hard worker. She is SO communicative and hospitable. I highly recommend cruising with them!!

    Captain James and Louis were absolutely amazing. We had the best day ever because of them. The boat is also beautiful and we wish we could have stayed longer. These two gentlemen are outstanding and showed up the best time ever on their boat. We are definitely coming back and using them again. Thanks so much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Captained Charter on 51ft Sea Ray flybridge Motor Yacht in Miami, Florida

    Had a amazing day with two experienced captains Ximena and Kevin. They went above and beyond to make this day extra special for us. The boat is big with various comfortable seating options. I look forward to doing another charter with them in the future.
