Last chance to enter giveaway: Miami half-day boating experience

With endless stretches of beaches, a skyline of glittering buildings, and tons of sandbars and coves to explore, Miami is a great place to see by boat. A boat rental or charter in Miami is one of the best ways to see the waterways around the city.

The water is for everyone! Kids love cruising on a pontoon or powerboat, and many vessels come equipped with gear for water sports, such as tubing or wake boarding. Grandparents can sit back and relax while watching their grandchildren enjoy the water. Elevate your date from the typical dinner and a movie and take it outside on the waves instead.

And despite what you might think — boating can be any affordable activity, even if you don’t own a boat. It’s even cheaper if you can win a free boat trip.

GetMyBoat, a boat rental platform, has hundreds of budget-friendly boat rental and charter options. Many boat rentals available in Miami start at $50 per hour. 

One lucky reader can win a half-day (4-hour) free boating experience on a 26-foot Sea Ray Sundeck with captain. Or, win $110 in credit toward a different GetMyBoat rental.

Here’s how to win:

  1. Leave a comment on this post about your favorite free thing to do in South Florida. 
  2. Make sure you are subscribed to our daily newsletter, because you have to be a subscriber to win. You can subscribe here.
  3. Get your entry in by Aug. 19, 2022.

The winner will be notified by email (so make sure you check). GetMyBoat will handle the booking with the contest winner.
