Do not waste your money with these Rude Scammers. I was looking for a local activity to do with my child. I used to live in Marina Del Rey. I called Marina Del Rey Boat Rentals on Friday on 310-306-4444 and spoke to a nice woman Johanna. I told her I was looking for a 13 ft Boston Whaler for 1 Hour. Their website lists this at $85.00. She said the minimum 1 Hour is only offered on Monday and Tuesday. So, I wait until Tuesday, take a half-day off work, download, and fill in their PDF Agreement, and head down to MDR with my child. Marina Del Rey Boat Rentals is a shack the size of my bathroom on a floating dock. Not easy to find. The over-aggressive, vile man at the shack window rudely says he could not care less what Johanna told me on the phone, and that the minimum rental is 1.5 Hours at $128.00. All I was planning to do was a couple of circles inside the Harbor for my child. I patiently tried to explain that I was told over the phone to come on Monday or Tuesday, but to no avail, this aggressive, nasty creep continued to rudely snap at me. We turned away and ended up renting Bird scooters for the day and made the best of it. Do not waste your money with these rude, vile scammers. It is a tiny shack with a few rundown boats, nothing like the photos on their website. I have no doubt that this over-aggressive guy will promptly provide a quick “comeback” reply to this honest negative review, followed by three 5-star raving reviews. Do not buy it. Marina Del Rey Boat Rentals is a nasty dump run by a total creep. The 1 Hour rental does not exist on any day for any boat. Once you get down there you will find out!

We have used their boats 3 times now, a cute boat with a bimini ( shade top) and just love taking a picnic out to the open ocean. Last time we were out, we were surrounded by dolphin, which was spectacular. The owners and staff are very attentive, coach you on how the boat works and make you feel confident, even if you haven’t tried boating before. It might sound expensive, but for the fun you have ( great stereo system!) and the feeling of freedom in nature, its way worth it!! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Lovely place. Efficient staff and very helpful. They have a good choice of wave runners as well. Everything is done professionally for seasoned and amateurs for your safety. Once out at sea they are fun to open up and with the added bonus of seeing a pod of dolphins surround us as they fed on a shoal of fish. Wonderful experience.

This was my first time booking a boat rental and I wasn't sure exactly how to go about it. After speaking on the phone to Jessica, who happily answered all my questions and concerns, I booked a reservation. On the day of our reservation we arrived a bit early to make sure all the paperwork was taken care of. The walk from the parking lot to the dock is super quick and easy and once my group arrived and documents were signed and all the safety information was given, off we were. The staff was friendly and eager to make sure we were on time. It couldn't have been a smoother experience. The boat was clean, easy to operate and obviously well maintained. We even got to see dolphins and sea lions. I would definitely rent a boat from these guys again. We had so much fun!

We went with party of 5 and they have enough choices of activities. We didn't have to pre-book anything and it wasn't busy at all since it was during weekday. 3 of us did paddle board and the sizes of the boards are more to the smaller size. They extend military discount and staff were very friendly. Overall the equipment are well maintained and the dock is easy to access. 1 of my friend doesn't know how to swim but able to get on the kayak with no problem. They also offer parasailing but that requires pre-booking. I like this area better because is less busy and the parking lot is roomy. I definitely will be back for the parasailing and paddle board. There is not much disruption so it makes it much easier to paddle on the board. Is my first time doing the paddle board and didn't need any lessons. The rental provide life vest and it was well maintained and clean. the dock is close to the parking lot, public restrooms and shops.
