Rent a boat with or without a skipper

Many of our boat charters in La Rochelle 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 La Rochelle, 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?

During the high season, typically from May to September, La Rochelle experiences delightful weather with average temperatures ranging from the 60s°F to the 70s°F. This period is ideal for boat rentals as the pleasant climate allows you to explore the enchanting coastlines, indulge in water sports, and enjoy the stunning vistas along the Atlantic Ocean.

In the months just outside of the high season, specifically April and October, average temperatures in La Rochelle range from the 50s°F to the 60s°F. While this period can be slightly cooler, the weather remains enjoyable for boating activities, and you can take advantage of quieter waters and a more serene atmosphere, as it falls during the shoulder season.

What type of boat is best for a La Rochelle boat charter?

Before choosing the right vessel for your boat rental in La Rochelle, 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 La Rochelle boat charter!
