Rentals Boats and all your other needs!
Crabbing is always better when you're in a boat!!!
Rental Boats are done by reservation only. Reservations are accepted no more than 7 to 10 days in advance.
Safety is our number one priority at Garibaldi Marina. It is this reason that we can only rent our boats on the INCOMING tide with favorable weather conditions. Please plan accordingly.
We rent 16 foot aluminum boats with well maintained late model 8hp motors. All required safety equipment is included with the rental at no additional charge. Coast Gaurd regulations do not allow more than 5 persons on board including children.
At the time of rental we will go over a map of the bay, detailing where to go and where the crabbing is good. We will also go over safety procedures, boat and motor operation and take time to answer any and all questions you may have. Please arrive a little early to allow time for this. Already experienced with boats and our area? Then please be patient and enjoy our refresher course!
We rent crab rings! Crab rings are a little different than crab pots. The primary difference is that you need to check crab rings more often, we recomend checking them about every ten minutes. Please feel free to bring your own gear or rent or purchase from us.
Boat rentals - $80 first three hours / $10 each additional hour as tide and weather allow.
Crab Rings - $6 each for the day. Back by end of business day - No overnight rentals.

Crab Cooking - First 12 crab FREE with boat rental!
The most common package we put together for our customers is a 3 hour boat rental / 3 crab rings / 6 crab bait for a total cost of $116.

We rent crab rings!
Crab rings are a little different than crab pots or traps. The primary difference is that you need to check crab rings more often, we recommend checking them about every ten minutes from a boat and about every fifteen minutes when crabbing off the docks.
We also rent clam rakes!
Clam rakes are great for harvesting many kinds of bay clams. Locally you can find Gapers, Butters, Cockles, Littlenecks, & Softshells.
Both Crab Rings and Clam Rakes are a $5.00 Rental and are due back an hour before the end of the business day.
Sorry - No overnight rentals.
