Rent a boat with or without a skipper

Many of our boat charters in Airlie Beach come with the option of sailing with a skipper and/or crew. Although this may come at an extra cost, having a skipper on board can, no doubt, provide you with an even more enjoyable experience! Your skipper can adapt the sailing route so that your voyage best suits the desires of you and the rest of your party.

Additionally, setting sail with a skipper will make your voyage even more comfortable! The skipper will take care of all the technical aspects of sailing, so all you need to do is sit back and relax.

If you would like to take charge of your boat charter in Airlie Beach, then bareboat charters are the way to go. Enjoy a bareboat charter if you have a license and set sail at your own pace. You need a valid boating license to enjoy a boat this way so check with the boat owner beforehand to see that your license is valid.

When is the best time of year to rent a boat?

The high season in Airlie Beach spans from April to October, offering pleasant weather and ideal conditions for boating and sailing. During this time, temperatures are generally warm, with average temperatures ranging from the mid-70s°F to low 80s°F. It's a popular time for tourists to visit, and you can expect busier marinas and more people enjoying water activities.

The months of March and November are considered shoulder seasons in Airlie Beach. These months can offer slightly lower rates for boat rentals and fewer crowds compared to the high season. Average temperatures during the shoulder season are similar to the high season, ranging from the mid-70s°F to low 80s°F

What type of boat is best for an Airlie Beach boat charter?

Before choosing the right vessel for your boat rental in Airlie Beach, you first have to think about the duration of your holiday. If you’re only going to sail for a few days, it is best to opt for a daily charter such as a motorboat or a RIB. With the speed of these vessels, you’ll be able to see everything on your wish list in no time. If you’re planning a longer charter of a week or more you should choose a vessel that includes amenities you’ll need during your stay. Catamarans and yachts have the space and accommodations on board to ensure a comfortable stay on the water. For a more luxurious holiday, you might consider a gulet, and for an authentic sailing experience a sailboat.

If you’re unsure about whether or not a vessel suits your needs, feel free to contact the boat owners to get a better sense of what is included on board. With our large fleet, you’ll have no problem finding the perfect boat for your Airlie Beach boat charter!
