Stay overnight on a boat anywhere in the world

When a day trip isn't enough, extend your experience with a sleep aboard boat hire or charter. Search and reserve a houseboat for the experience of a lifetime. Hiring a houseboat is a popular option for groups looking to spend a few nights exploring an area, swimming, and relaxing onboard. Houseboats typically accommodate large groups and are perfect for hosting family gatherings or annual trips with friends. Sleep aboards can be chartered with a captain, or you can hire a boat and explore on your own.

    We had a great afternoon out with Captain Maj! The meeting spot in False Creek was perfect and the overall cruise and anchor was super fun. Really liked that we could bring our own food and drinks, sit back and relax and enjoy the views :)

    Mike was helpful, honest, and a great host. The boat was as pictured- the outdoor seating space is a little tight to fit all 12 people, so we split half up front and half in the back by the end of the trip. It was very easy to book the boat on this site, and Mike was attentive the week before, sending a message and then via text message and calls to make sure we found the proper location etc. Members of the group have already asked for his contact info to book more trips on this boat! Would definitely rent with Mike again, great experience.

    We had a wonderful day on the lake/river thanks to Mike. The boat was sparkling clean, and Mike was very helpful in figuring out the right itinerary for my group. It was truly an ideal set-up for 10-12 people and I can't recommend working with Mike and team enough.

    Michael was very easy to get in contact with in the weeks prior to the boat rental. Captain Danny was great too! Had a wonderful day out on the water with a group of 12 and definitely would book again!

    The boat is super chill and comfy! The captain is incredibly professional and relaxed. We brought drinks and snacks and were able to connect via Bluetooth to listen to our own music. Overall a great boat outing with friends!
