Staying on land is overrated. If you’re looking for a way to introduce some Miami-vibes into your summer plans, why not consider renting a boat or yacht in Canada? For the same price as an Airbnb or hotel suite, you can experience life on the water, and relax in the sunshine with your BFFs. Goodbye shoreline, goodbye worries!

While it’s definitely more common to search for accomodation on dry land, there’s also some extraordinary options a little further out to sea.

In fact, Canada has loads of weird and wonderful boats and yachts that you can rent for relatively cheap prices, and they’re perfect for a summer vacation on the water.

For the same price as a night's stay in a city hotel, you can test your sea legs and experience sleeping on the waves.

From luxury yachts on the ocean, to rustic and romantic river boats, there’s a perfect maritime trip out there somewhere waiting for you.

Forget whatever you had planned for your 2020 vacation, a nautical adventure is calling your name!
