Private Boat Hire for Sightseeing Adventures


If taking a public group tour does not appeal to you, and you are interested in creating your own itinerary, a private boat may be the recreational solution you need. Catering to tourists visiting primarily coastal locations, private boat hire is also possible along well-known inland bodies of water. While public boat tours can usually be researched on the Internet prior to departing, this usually applies to domestic boat hire. When traveling internationally, private boat hire is usually done onsite, after your travel party has arrived at its destination.

Upon arrival, hotels and visitor centers can provide you with literature regarding the process of hiring a chartered boat. Boats usually specialize in catering to one recreational event, as there are specific excursions focusing on sport fishing, scuba diving, group parties and island sightseeing. After you have determined the purpose for which you will need to hire the boat, proceed to the town's marina. At the marina office, the harbormaster can help guide you with your selection. This will allow you to choose a reputable operator who has experience with providing sightseeing tours and recreational outings.
