Where to Find the Best Amelia Island Boat Rentals

No matter what time of year you’re heading to Amelia Island, there’s plenty to see and do. Take the time to enjoy some fresh seafood with your family at a local restaurant, pick out a unique souvenir downtown, or simply relax and unwind in one of our Amelia Island vacation rentals. Still, while there are plenty of fun things to do inside, the outdoor activities on Amelia Island are worthy of your attention as well.

When you want to make the most of your time on Amelia Island, rent your own boat and take to the waters as you please! 

Ocean Outboard Marine

One of the most popular local companies for boat rentals is Ocean Outboard Marine, located just moments away from the water. While the company is primarily known for its boat sales, they are also an excellent source for renting a boat while you’re in town. Owner and operator Eric Oliver has been in the local boating business for more than 20 years and can help you find the most suitable vessel for your needs. 

Here, you have two main boats to choose from. The 17-foot Angler is optimal for those who want to head out on the water to try for the big catch. This boat can fit four passengers and includes a GPS and Fishfinder for your use. Alternatively, you can rent the 23-foot Beach Cat Deckboat for even more fun in the sun! This vessel is available for daily rentals, can sit up to eight people, and includes fuel, a map, and all safety gear.
