Mamas, we all want our Jersey summers to be shore to please for the whole family. We’re talking catching waves, eating boardwalk fries (malt vinegar over here, please!), and maybe even exploring the Jersey Shore via sea. If you’re looking for a hidden gem to make your shore experience a memorable one, we highly recommend Bill’s Boat Rentals in Seaside Heights for your #NJMOM summer bucket. After working at the business for over 18 years, the owner, Bill Waldron, bought Bill’s Boat Rentals following Superstorm Sandy, and turned it into the go-to spot for all of your family’s boat-renting needs around Seaside Heights. At Bill’s Boat Rentals, you can rent boats, crabbing traps and supplies, all while using their docks and having some extra fun at the free beachfront playground and beach.
And, it’s all reasonably priced and easy to access. Can we say summer #momwin?

Rent a boat in Seaside Heights and explore the beautiful Jersey Shore
“If you don’t bring it, we have it. ” – Bill Waldron, owner of Bill’s Boat Rentals
Every summer, Bill’s Boat Rentals sends out between 300 and 400 boats from Seaside Heights to enjoy a full (or half) day of family fun. Bill’s Boat Rentals is happy to provide everything you need while out on one of their little blue boats; from bait to buckets, to nets, traps, poles, tackle and line.
What to know before you go to Bill’s Boat Rentals in Seaside
All you need to start your day on the water is a valid driver’s license (you must be 18 to operate the boats).
We recommend requesting a boat with a cover over the top to block the hot sun and keep the little ones cool. If you’re unsure of the best spot to head to catch your fill of crabs or views, don’t worry, Bill’s experienced staff is happy to give you the inside scoop and the best strategies for success on the water.
When you’re all finished on the boat, you can even stick around for some more crabbing on the dock, enjoy the cute nautical-themed playground nearby and free beach (with lifeguard on duty), or grab a bite to eat at Stewart’s Root Beer, all while enjoying gorgeous waterfront views. Bill’s also has free public restrooms and free parking.
For this #NJMOM adventure, Bill’s Boat Rentals is offering a sweet deal. For a half-day boat rental (four and a half hours with four people), you’ll pay just $72. If full-day fun on the water is more your thing, you’ll pay just $20 more. Another perk? Teachers can enjoy 15% off and firefighters/EMT/military/police receive 10% off (active or retired).
The business is cash only, so be sure to come prepared. Bill’s is open from 7AM to 4PM from Memorial Day to Labor Day.
