Boat rentals in San Diego, CA


San Diego’s Most Popular Experiences

With its prime location on California's shores, San Diego is a boating paradise. Let's take a look at what you can get up to with a boat rental.

Surfs Up
California and surfing go hand in hand. If you want to surf somewhere in the U.S. then California's Pacific coast is the first that should come to mind. There are a plethora of world-class beaches with great waves that you can steer your San Diego boat rental to, and catch onto the drifts.

Gaze in Awe at a Great Migration
Luckily the sun can be found year-round in San Diego. If you head out on a San Diego boat rental in February, you could be lucky enough to witness Californian gray whales making their annual southbound migration.

Watch the Sun Drift Below the Horizon
The sun sets in the west, and with nothing but the ocean between your San Diego boat rental and Asia, you can view one of the most magnificent sunsets you can imagine. As it heads downwards, the orange gaze lights up the rocking waves, bringing forth a sense of wonder and delight.

San Diego's Best Bodies of Water

Find a Sheltered Spot in Mission Bay

Protected from the high waves yet still taking in that ocean breeze is Mission Bay. If a sailing boat is the San Diego boat rental you’re after, you can’t go wrong with this water body. Join the rest of the fleet, looping their way round this peaceful stretch.

Take a Tour Around Coronado

Located on the peninsula opposite from Downtown San Diego, across the San Diego Bay, Coronado is a boating gem. The area offers you subdued beaches and wondrous scenery to explore on your San Diego boat rental.

Scutter Across South San Diego Bay

Chula Vista is located in the southern sector of San Diego Bay. Southern Stand sits to the west of you and Chula Vista to the east as you cruise through this wildlife reserve on your San Diego boat rental, drink in hand.
