Miami is a vibrant city, full of energy and exciting experiences no matter where you look. Have you ever considered taking a step back to enjoy the city from the water? Boat rentals in Miami offer a variety of options for travelers to explore from an exciting new angle, offering unique experiences for all interests.
Renting a boat on the sparkling Atlantic offers all types of memorable experiences. Those simply needing a day to relax on the calming water will be delighted by the extensive selection of deck boats and cruisers, ideal for anchoring on the sandbar. For the adventure-seekers, you can charter a catamaran to spend the day snorkeling or take part in a deep-sea fishing excursion with an expert fisherman. If your group wants to tour the city and its surroundings, captain and crew-operated boat tours are available for scenic excursions to national parks, nearby islands, and even to power your booze cruise bar-hopping up the Intercoastal. Finally, since Miami is known for its ostentatious displays of wealth, it’s the place to enjoy a luxurious party on a rented mega yacht, perfect for commemorating a special occasion.
Anchor Out And Relax On The Water
Have you ever heard, “A rainy day on the water is better than a good day at work”? One of the most relaxing ways to unplug is to spend the day anchored on one of the many sandbars surrounding Miami Beach, lounging on a float, enjoying some cocktails, and simply being.
Here are some of the best relaxation boat rental options in Miami to consider:
This cute little Bayliner deck boat is perfect for the couple or family wanting to relax anchored to a sandbar, maybe with a few tubing or skiing breaks thrown in. Deck boats are popular rentals because they are easy to maneuver, have enough power to support water sports, and offer ample space aboard.
Anyone who mocks a group dancing aboard a pontoon boat clearly has never experienced the stress-free joy of a pontoon. This captain-driven rental is equipped with the ultimate relaxation accessories, including an upper deck lounge with sofas, a water slide, a shaded lounge area, multiple inflatables and water toys, a 12 x 6 floating mat, and a high-end Bluetooth sound system.
This impressive cruiser, named Whiskey Business, is one of our favorite boat rentals in Miami. It includes your personal captain and guide and is the perfect mid-sized rental that can be enjoyed while docking on a sandbar or cruising the open sea.
Charter A Deep-Sea Fishing Boat
Fishermen in Miami brag that it offers the absolute best deep-sea fishing available in the United States because you can expect to catch just about anything. Okay, so you probably won’t catch salmon, but the Atlantic Coast waters are full of every species from tuna to billfish, mahi to swordfish. If you don’t know how to bait a hook, it’s probably a good idea to take advantage of the many captain-operated fishing charters. Not only will these skippers pilot your boat, but they are skilled in knowing the hot spots and the right bait and tactics to lure your trophy catch.

Snorkel The Sea

However, diving into the submarine outskirts offers adventurers the chance to get up close and personal with some of the ocean’s most enchanting creatures and colorful reefs. We recommend taking a charter or hiring a captain along with your boat rental so they can show you where to find the most stunning underwater scenes.
