The price of a fishing boat rental is subject to change based on a number of factors such as time of year, the number of people and the various amenities on board the fishing boat. Generally speaking, the average price of a fishing boat rental for 6 people is about €420 per day in high season and €360 per day in low season, but prices also vary by destination.
For example, the price of a fishing boat rental for 6 people in Florida starts from €1,087 per day whereas the price in Panama City for 9 people is cheaper at €988 per day.
The duration of the rental can also affect the price and the minimum duration period is also dependent on the owner. Some owners only allow rentals by the week whereas others allow daily rentals, half-day rentals and rentals by the hour! There are many options to give you the autonomy to decide when and how you sail, as well as how much time you want to spend on board, navigating the waters.
If you would like to sail a fishing boat on your own, you must have a valid nautical license which allows you to do so. But if you don’t have a license to sail don’t worry, you still have plenty of fishing boat rental options which include a skipper on board, who will take care of everything so you can sit back, release the line and wait for a bite! Many of the fishing boat rentals on the Nautal platform have a mandatory skipper on board which is either included in the price or at an extra cost. This is because fishing boats are expensive, and owners don’t want to risk damage being done to their vessels, especially in high season. You should also be aware that in some destinations you will need a license to fish on a boat. If you’re unsure about licenses and permits, make sure to ask the boat owner for more information.
There are so many beautiful places in the world, and with Nautal you can explore them all. We have a range of boats in our fleet in some of the best fishing destinations in the world. In Europe, Spain is one of the most popular destinations for fishing, as it has one of the largest fishing markets in the world. Here you can find both saltwater and freshwater fish like Sea bream, Cod and Swordfish. Some of the best fishing spots in Spain include Mallorca, Alicante, Torrevieja, Cartagena and Costa Brava.
Mexico is also another popular destination for fishing, as it is home to one of the most ecologically diverse bodies of water in the world: the Gulf of Mexico. Here you can spot a variety of sea life such as dolphins, sharks and turtles. For fishing, you might have a chance to catch Red Snappers, Wahoo and Grouper fish. We recommend renting a fishing boat in the beautiful Cabo San Lucas for the fishing holiday of a lifetime.
The most important thing to consider when renting a fishing boat is safety. Always confirm with the owner that there are life jackets on board and be sure to pack other safety essentials for your journey, as well as plenty of snacks and water. Remember that once you’re out on the water, it’s not always easy to go to the shop and buy something you might need, so it’s always best to overprepare before stepping foot on board.
If you’re new to fishing and sailing, we recommend chartering a fishing boat with a skipper and crew to help you handle all of the nautical logistics. Finally, be sure to ask the boat owner whether or not fishing equipment is included or if it’s necessary to bring your own.
All fishing boats on our website offer different services and amenities which might be included in the charter price, or available for additional fees. Some of our fishing boats include fuel, a skipper and fishing equipment in the price of the rental while for others, these are considered additional expenses. Most owners require renters to pay for fuel and for refuelling the boat before returning it once your rental period has finished. Owners also usually expect renters to pay a final cleaning fee on top of the base charter price. As always, if you’re unsure about additional costs and what is included in the price of your fishing boat rental, communicate with the owner for more detailed information and a breakdown of expenses.
