Boat Rental Miami : What You Need To Know

Renting a boat in Miami is both simple and affordable , contrary to what one might think, not always as expensive as you might think. Here we answer the key questions you may have about boat rental in Miami.

Do I need a license to rent a boat in Miami?

The first thing to know, you need to be at least 18 years old to rent a boat in Miami.

The second thing to know, there is no need for a boating license in Florida. The boating license simply does not exist there.

However, since January 1st, 2010, to sail a boat with 10 or more horsepower (i.e. the vast majority of motorboats), according to Florida laws, you must be born on or after January 1st, 1988:

  • pass a Boating Safety Course and obtain a Boating Safety Education Card, or
  • get a temporary sailing license

If you were born in 1988 or later and you’re only passing through Miami, you will have to opt for the second solution.

Temporary licenses are navigational authorizations for a one-year validity period. Ask a boat rental company to obtain a certificate.

Where can I find boat charters ?

Prices for boat rentals vary depending on the boat rental company, the type of boat, the duration of the rental, and also if you choose to drive the boat yourself or if you choose the services of a captain and a crew.
