boat rental

boat rentalRenting a boat is a wonderful option if you are planning to travel without your vessel or if you don’t have one. Although boat rental may seem like a simple process, all you need is put down a deposit, get the keys, and just go. There are some things you need to remember when looking for boat rentals to make sure that you have a fun filled and safe day on the water.

Get what you need.

If you want to spend a day fishing with your friends or loved ones, a ski boat won’t get the job done. Call Action Water Sportz ahead of time to make sure that the boat rental you want is available.

Make a reservation.

Do you want to go out on a certain day? Then make a boat reservation for a boat rental Myrtle Beach ahead of time. You don’t to see yourself and your friends all prepared only to find out that there are no available boat rentals.

Shop around.

Shop around and compare rates to get the best deal. Most companies have multi-day, full-day, or even a half-day boat rentals. Choose the option that is suitable for your needs.

Perform a walkthrough.

Before you hand over your credit card, be sure that your rental boat is maintained well and is working properly. Ask the boat rental operator to give you a walkthrough and to tell you where important items like battery switches are located. Find out if the safety equipment is on the boat and in working condition.

Always be prepared.

Never take for granted the preparation required if you are renting a boat in a new area or if you are about to operate a new kind of boat. Any type vessel that you rent out must have the latest maps or charts so you can safely navigate the waters. In case this is your first time on a pontoon boat or a sail boat, take extra care and know how to pilot the boat safely.

File a float plan.

Even if it is not required by the boat rental company, it is still best to file a float plan especially if you don’t know the area very well. Be sure you know how to properly use the onboard radio and bring your mobile phone and a list of the numbers of who you would like to get in touch with in case you get into some kind of trouble.

Check your insurance.

When renting a boat, you should also consider the insurance. Boat rental is different from a car rental. Most rental firms are protected by their liability insurance but their coverage does not include you. So make sure that you are covered.
