Items To Bring on Your Boat Trip

There are a number of items you should bring on a boat trip. The individual boat owner might have some extra requirements like a boater education card (if you're renting without a captain and want to operate the vessel yourself) so you'll want to ask them when making the booking.

But common items worth bringing include:

  • Plenty of sunscreen
  • A hat to cover your head
  • Sunglasses to protect your eyes

  • Towels
  • Water safety gear e.g. arm bands if you can't swim

So you want to rent a boat in Florida but don't know where to go? Well, there are plenty of places to check out. If you hire a boat with a captain, they'll most likely know some great places. But if you don't, here are some great spots for boaters:

Miami Beach

You can't enjoy a boat rental in Florida without checking out the wonderful Miami Beach. Located in south Florida, you can explore the miles of beach along the coast or simply cool off with a swim in the Atlantic Ocean.

Clearwater Beach

An award winning beach located a short distance from Clearwater city, enjoy a day boating on this beautiful coastal area and check out the vast marine wildlife.

Fort Lauderdale Canals

The canals are full of all different types of fish for you to catch. You'll find plenty of peacock bass around the docks here.

Stiltsville, Key Biscayne

Stiltsville is a group of abandoned homes and businesses just over a mile off the coast of Key Biscayne. It's a cool spot to check out by boat to see some of these historic buildings

Key West Coral Reef

Explore the rich marine environment and North Americas only living coral reef with swimming and snorkeling in the Atlantic Ocean.

You can also explore the shipping wrecks and if you're lucky you might even catch a glimpse of the dolphins and sea turtles.

Hollywood Beach, Florida

With the white sandy beaches littered across the coast, this is a wonderful spot to explore! Cool off with a swim, search for fish with snorkeling or simply relax onboard and take in the sun.

Newport Fishing Pier, Sunny Isles Beach

Newport Fishing Pier is a great spot to go fishing or simply relax and soak up the sun. Located at Collins Avenue and Sunny Isles Boulevard, you'd be foolish not to check it out. This is also a great spot to check out the local stores and cafes.
