Five Big Miami Boat Rentals Myths Debunked

You don’t have to be in Miami for too long to begin to understand the huge role the water plays in the day to day ‘life’ of the city and the surrounding area. Where there is open water there are always going to be boats and so Miami boat rentals are often at – or near – the top of a visitor’s to do list when they visit our unique and truly vibrant city.

There are, however, several persistent myths that keep others from truly enjoying all that the water around Miami have to offer. In the interest of trying to help ensure that anyone has the best possible experience when visiting – or even living in- the Magic City, we thought we’d take the time to look at some of the most common Miami boat rental myths and offer a little information about the realities behind them.

Myth #1: Miami Boat Rentals are Too Expensive

This is a biggie. There are those who do not ever even inquire about renting a boat – although they’d love to – because they have heard that doing so is hugely expensive and not something the ‘average’ person can afford to do.

That however, could not be further from the truth. Ask yourself for a second, how much would you expect to spend on a great meal while on vacation? Around $40 per person sounds pretty reasonable, right? Well, that’s about what it will cost to rent a boat with too. The rates are a little higher for the flashier options – but not anywhere near as high as you might imagine – and a day out on the water anywhere around Miami offers so much more than even a really great meal.
