Marina Boat Rentals

Marina Boat Rentals’ diverse fleet of runabouts, deck boats, and day sailers enables hydrophiles of all stripes to sail the placid waters of Newport Bay. Before embarking, staffers brief new pilots on rules for safe operation of their vessel and provide them with detailed maps of the area. They then bid pilots bon voyage, endowing them with the freedom to steer boats across 27 square miles of placid, island-dotted waters. With boat speeds peaking at 5 mph, crews can expect a leisurely ride, ideal for lounging onboard or winning staring contests against passing tugboat captains. Additionally, the staff outfits all the boats with an AM/FM stereo, and invites guests to bring eats and beverages aboard.

Customer Reviews

Had a great time & had great customer service :) thanks :)
Marisela A. · June 25, 2013
Boats were very easy to drive and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. Even though we had the boat rental scheduled from 1-3, they started the time from 2-4PM (one of our party got lost and was late). Had a great time and will definitely be back!
