Boat Rentals By Owner Will Get You To The World’s Top Boating Spots!

Sail the Whitsundays, Australia

Cruising in a sailboat among the Whitsunday Islands is a breathtaking experience. This tropical respite of turquoise seas meeting ivory sands against a backdrop of dense green foliage will be ingrained in your memory. Life on board here becomes pleasurably simple. Take a swim in the surrounding water, or a nap on the deck of the boat or the sand on the beach-it’s all good down under.

Brave the  Devil’s Throat at IGUAZÚ, ARGENTINA & BRAZIL

Every year, many thousands of visitors from around the world try to fathom the sheer dimension of this natural wonder – around 275 individual cascades, the highest with a drop of over 80m. However you spell it – Iguazú, Iguassu or Iguaçu – there’s little doubt that these are the most amazing falls in the world. Get right into the heart of the action on a boat trip up to the ominously named Devil’s Throat, one of the most impressive waterfalls.

Fish in the Columbia River Bar

Bring your rod and reel and North River boat, or hire a guide, and fish for salmon in the Columbia River Bar, where the Pacific Ocean and Columbia River meet. Begin at the crack of dawn, bobbing along, and cast your rod for fresh herring or anchovies. Don’t forget to wear your wet-weather gear!

Sea Kayaking in the San Juan Islands, Within the Puget Sound of Washington State

Animal lovers will delight in spending several days paddling, discovering jellyfish, or seeing a bald eagle take flight. Kayak the stunning sea cliffs & lighthouses of the wilder western San Juan Islands. Perhaps the elusive orca will show itself. Beach your kayak on the shore, and visit monuments and State & County Parks. Don’t miss camping on smaller islands in the San Juans with abundant eagles, otters & seals.

Sail to Palau and Endulge in a Natural Mud Bath in Milky Way

While boating in and out of Palau’s 300+ islets in search of the best snorkeling spots in this western Pacific island, you will behold spectacular sites full of colorful fish, whitetip sharks, gigantic clams, and elaborate coral. Don’t miss experiencing The Milky Way Lagoon, as locals call it, which is renowned as a natural spa treatment. The creamy water gives off a cloudy appearance, its bottom covered by white limestone mud – the best natural mud bath you’ll ever get!

Dry Tortugas National Park

Almost 70 miles (113 km) west of Key West lies the remote Dry Tortugas National Park. The 100-square mile park is mostly open water with seven small islands and protected reefs. When you secure a boat rental by owner through Boatsetter, you will be able to sail off and enjoy dramatic landscapes or explore underwater wonders including beautiful reefs, marine life and shipwrecks. Accessible only by boat or seaplane, the park is not easily reached.

Make sure to plan ahead if you are going to charter a boat with Boatsetter – you won’t want to miss the picturesque blue waters, marine life and the incredible variety of birds that call the area their home.
