When seeking inexpensive boat rentals, be sure to rent an appropriately sized boat for the area, make sure the boat has insurance and verify that is not the renter's responsibility to obtain coverage. Searching the Internet for boat rental agencies in the area is a good way to begin looking for inexpensive boat rentals, notes DiscoverBoating.com.
Try contacting a local marina or local tourism office for a list of boat rental companies, states DiscoverBoating.com. Make sure to examine the boat closely to look for anything that is damaged and may be blamed on the renter. Note the damage in the rental agreement. Some rental agencies charge less when renters bring their own safety equipment, such as life jackets.
