Boat Rental in San Diego with Click&Boat

Sunny San Diego, California is known for its beaches, laidback lifestyle, and warm weather. Oh, and street tacos. The city is the last stop in California before heading into Tijuana, so San Diego’s food and culture are heavily influenced by Mexico. The city is big - extending from La Jolla down to Point Loma and inland toward San Pasqual Valley - but the heart of downtown is easily walkable. San Diego Bay is protected by land, making it an ideal harbor for the United States Navy, but also an ideal spot for boating, kayaking, jetskiing, or paddleboarding.

San Diego is an excellent destination to get on the water and discover the southern coast of California. Need a boat? Good news! Boat rental in San Diego is available with Click&Boat! We have plenty of vessels ranging in size and purpose for cruising around Mission Beach, San Diego Bay, and even Catalina Island. 

How much does it cost to rent a boat in San Diego?

There are plenty of factors that influence the price of a yacht charter in San Diego including the size of the boat, model, time of year, or the number of guests. For instance, a used pontoon boat that can host a lot of people may cost less than renting a sailboat with a captain for two guests. Plus, you have to consider extras including water toys, fishing gear, snorkel gear, or captain and crew.

San Diego motorboat rentals start at around $800/day for up to 6 guests and can cost up to $7,500/day for 8 guests.

A sailboat rental in San Diego starts at approximately $900/day and can cost up to $3,500/day, depending on the number of guests.

Where to boat in San Diego?

A mild climate and steady winds make San Diego a desirable destination for boating. Visitors and locals can discover San Diego and its neighboring coastal towns via catamaran, sailboat, superyacht, motorboat, and more; with Click&Boat, you can rent a boat in San Diego to enjoy the city beyond land!

  • Mission Bay is the world’s largest man-made saltwater bay that’s protected from the wild Pacific Ocean. And it’s also an ideal spot for your San Diego boat rental (especially pontoon boats, electric boats, or jet skis)! This aquatic playground has waterways, inlets, isles, beaches, waterfront dining, Sea World, and watersports to facilitate a fun day on the water.
  • Point Loma is on a rugged peninsula that’s bordered by the Pacific Ocean to the west and San Diego Bay to the east. When you rent a boat in San Diego, ask your captain about sailing around Point Loma during sunset. You can even dock n’ dine at Point Loma Marina, which features a promenade with shops, bars, and restaurants.
  • San Diego Bay is a top sailing destination in Southern California. Cruising around the bay offers incredible views of San Diego’s skyline! Plus, you’ll pass by military ships such as the USS Midway, which is always a unique experience.
  • If you book a multiday catamaran charter in San Diego, consider sailing to Catalina Island. It will take some time and planning with your captain, but once you get there, you’ll find that it’s a beautiful destination to enjoy the outdoors with family or friends!
  • Sportfish fanatic? Consider a fishing charter to La Jolla! Depending on the season, you can catch bluefin tuna, calico bass, yellowtail, or mahi-mahi. Keep in mind that there are certain areas around San Diego that require a fishing license. That’s why it’s best to go with a captain or a boat tour so that you can safely fish and enjoy your day.
