Newport’s Largest Rental Fleet

Hours: Monday – Sunday, 10 AM – 6 PM
Located in the heart of the historic Balboa Fun Zone waterfront, Newport Beach Boat Rentals is home to Newport Harbor’s largest and most diversified rental fleet. Here you can take a relaxing self-guided tour of the beautiful homes and yachts of the harbor in your choice of five types of power or sail watercraft… enjoy a healthy workout on a super-stable kayak…jump the ocean swells in a powerful jetboat or runabout or, put your sportfishing skills to the test in a top-of-the-line Boston Whaler.

For common sense reasons, all rental availability is based on safe weather conditions.

Our Rental Fleet

Get out on the water today!

Be Your Own Captain!

Piloting your own boat in the bay is fun, safe and easy. All bay rental boats are governed not to exceed the 5 mph maximum harbor speed limit. Detailed maps are provided and all guests are thoroughly briefed on the “Rules of the Road” as well as the safe operation of their boat. Adult life vests are already on board and all children under
twelve are fitted with vests prior to boarding.
  • Took the family and mom out for an afternoon boat ride.  Had another fantastic time.

  • We had the BEST time renting a Duffy. The service was amazing and the staff was even better. Thank you for a great day. We will be back!

  • Renting a boat seems like a wallet breaker, but Newport Beach Boat Rentals has great prices AND a nice amount of boats to choose from. ...a fun adventure that's easy on your wallet, fun for everyone and it's RELAXING. What's a day in sunny, always summer, SoCal without spending it on (or even in) the ocean?

  • Loved, loved, loved my experience with marina boat rentals.

  • Their pricing for rentals are competitive and they have a number of options if you want to try something different than a Duffy.  They also tend to have the quickest turnover for their rentals so you never have to wait too long for a boat, even on busy days.

  • No hassle whatsoever--we reserved a time an hour after showing up on a busy summer weekend, got some food, and came back to fill out just one liability form and give them our credit card. Within 5 minutes we were on a boat.

    Ralph L.Long Beach, CA
  • Over the summer, me and my friends rented from these guys half a dozen times. Every time was a great experience! Staff was very friendly.

    Todd J.Newport Beach, CA
  • More fun than Disneyland for at least one kid. It is funny that you can spend all sorts of time, energy and money planning something 'spectacular' and it is the spur-of-the-moment activity at the end of your trip that is the most memorable.

  • All in all, good times renting a cruiser... Would definitely do it again, and maybe even go for 3 hours - with all the fun we were having the time just went by so fast.

    Belle L.Tustin, CA
  • ... I have become a big fan of this place.  It's an amazing deal for a number of different types of water craft, and the employees here are super friendly, helpful, and customer oriented.

    Robert M.Corona Del Mar, CA
  • These guys are just amazing. I mean, just wow!  ...  I had the time of my life.

  • Wonderful service!  Clean boats, friendly staff and right on top of things.  Had a terrific time on their boats!!

    Mia S.Newport Beach, CA
  • When we arrived, they had our reservation and our boat ready to go. We got the smaller boat because there were just three of us. Instructions on operation were easy, and we were also given routes we could take to see everything in our alloted time. The staff was helpful and friendly. Will be going back to see them again.

  • I'm so glad that I picked this place. The staff was incredibly helpful with everything and so accommodating. I'd like to personally thank Mike for taking extra time to help with my plans and just going above and beyond. I would highly recommend this place to any one that is considering a boat rental in the area. I will definitely be back in the future!
