Many good ideas for renting a boat in Malaga

Along 160 km of the Costa del Sol, we present some wonderful ideas to spend an unforgettable day offshore!

  • Watching the fireworks of the Malaga Fair from the sea is a unique experience.
  • Celebrating a birthday
  • A different outing with a group of friends
  • Dolphin Watching
  • Visit hidden coves and waterfalls only accessible from the sea
    The eastern Costa del Sol towards Granada is characterized by beautiful hidden coves among rocks and vegetation, many of them only accessible on foot or from the sea.
    We recommend you to visit the Maro waterfall, hidden between rock formations and surrounded by turquoise waters. You can visit the Maro waterfall by boat. Or rent a canoe or book a guided tour with Educare Aventura. We have done it and we loved it!

  • Watch the sunset from the sea (with or without DJ)
    Another option is to enjoy a “public” catamaran with a DJ, watching the sunset and having a drink. The duration is about 2 hours and the price is about €20. A top idea, we have done it with FlyBlue in the Port of Malaga, a great experience that We will repeat this summer!
  • Bachelor parties
    Parties and bachelor parties on boats are a growing option in recent times. Remember that cities like Malaga have already banned bachelor parties in their centre, due to the lack of civility in this type of celebration. What you should know about bachelor parties in Malaga: Malaga has imposed restrictions on bachelor parties: Do not walk down the street without clothes or only in underwear, neither with dolls nor with “elements of a sexual nature or with accessories that represent genitalia”. Fines can go up to €750.

How much does it cost to rent a boat in Malaga?

This will depend a lot on the modality you choose, of course. But renting a boat in Malaga does not necessarily have to be very expensive. Obviously, if you opt for a yacht or a catamaran for a larger party, the price will be higher.

Prices for unlicensed boats start at around €80 for an hour. This price becomes proportionally cheaper as you rent the boat for more hours.

If you opt for a “public” catamaran with a DJ, watching the sunset and having a drink, the evening is very economical at around 20€. The duration is about 2 hours. A top idea.
