Boat Rentals

Does anybody know of a boat rental company in either kihei or lahaina (or anywhere else really)

I have only come across one company and you have to rent the boats for a minimum of 3 to 5 hours depending on which boat you rent. I'm looking for something hourly with no minimum.

Any help would be appreciated!

I guess you tried Sea Escape - 3 to 5 hr min.

It's probably going to be difficult to find somthing with no min. I'd contact Sea Escape & tell them what you want.... all they can say is no.

Also, you may want to enquire at either:

Central Pacific Marine in Lahaina - Phone: (808) 661-3349

or

Maui Boat Works in Kahului (808) 871-5552

Yea that's Sea Escape.

I'll give those two places a call. Thanks!

I've never been to Hawai'i before. I'd think there would be more places that rented out boats. Sea Escape seems to be the only one with a presence on the internet. Hope there are more.

I called those 2 places.

The first place doesn't have it. The 2nd number seems to be disconnected.

I hope I come across something. I'd love to take my wife out on the ocean... just the two of us.

Those numbers are from awhile back....

I'm sure you asked the one company you spoke with for referral's, eh??

I looked on Craigslist Hawaii, to no avail.....was that your ad asking for a short term boat rental?? Great idea!

Good luck!

Yea the guy told me that seaescape was the only place he knew of that rented boats in Maui.

:) Yea I posted on craiglist for a rental.

Hopefully someone will come through.

Not a bad money making business idea.

I'm sure with all the water activities in the area, insurance for this kind of venture would be a major deal breaker....
