Great birthday on the water 23 May 2021

My families experience with Noah and Friday Harbor boat rentals was exceptional. It was my daughter’s fourth birthday and we rented a 17 foot whaler. Noah met us down on the dock and was so excited that we were taking our daughter out on a boat for her fourth birthday. He found an appropriate life jacket for her and gave us a rundown on the boat.We went through a quick safety briefing and he showed us all these amazing places to check out while we’re out on the water. Noah puts a lot of trust in you and really helps you plan a great adventure with his boat. We powered up to Roche Harbor had lunch and explored some islands on the way back to Friday Harbor it was a perfect day. The boat ran flawlessly was very clean and we had an absolute blast and our Daughter said this was the best day ever. I highly suggest renting from Noah at Friday harbor boat rentals!

Winter is a great time to go boating too! We've rented from Noah during Spring Break, 4th of July and now over Christmas. He's great and the crabbing was really fun in the snow.

Review 05 Nov 2020

Highly recommend renting from Noah at Friday Harbor Boat Rentals! We were staying on Orcas island for the weekend and wanted to get out on the water and do a bit of crabbing. Being a Monday in the off season (early November) and during COVID, pretty much every place we contacted was closed. Noah was super responsive, helped us make a plan for getting from Orcas to San Juan, explained exactly what we’d need to go crabbing and where to get it nearby his boat, and just gave us a lot of confidence taking the stress out of planning this outing. When our early morning ferry to SJI was cancelled, he responded quickly and postponed our reservation by a few hours till we could get there, no problems. When we finally got to the boat he was very patient and thorough with the briefing of the boat: where everything was located, and how to operate it. He pulled out a map and showed us all of the good spots in the area, throwing in some local info that really helped us make an unforgettable boating trip! He provided some crab traps we could use, told us where the best spot to drop them was, and helped us figure out a general idea of our plan for the day. We saw a ton of sea life out there, stopped at Roche Harbor, navigated through tons of smaller islands, and caught 8 crabs! 2 mamas had to go back...but will make for great dinner for weeks to come! This was the absolute highlight of our weekend getaway, and an unforgettable experience. We will absolutely be back to Friday Harbor Boat Rentals and highly recommend to everyone we know!

Highly recommend renting from Noah at Friday Harbor Boat Rentals. He was very professional and made sure we felt comfortable and confident driving the boat and knowing where everything was located in the boat. We even saw a whole pod of whales while we were cruising around. By far the best part of our vacation on San Juan Island.

Review 17 Aug 2020

Noah answered all of my questions and had a great attitude. Our boat was in great shape, had plenty of power, and ran great. No complaints at all, great experience.

Review 11 Aug 2020

We had a great time renting the 20' ALUMAWELD (Stryker). Noah was great, easy to coordinate with and very friendly. We rented a couple crab cages and Noah pointed us to a fantastic spot. This was our first time crabbing and we managed to catch 8 (but released 3). They were delicious for dinner that night. Overall, great day. Thanks Noah!

Review 28 Jun 2020

Friday Harbor boat rentals was the perfect answer to a great vacation to the San Juan Islands. Noah was extremely helpful and friendly. He thoroughly helped orient us to the area and the boat. It was a fun filled day on the water where we were able to see some native wildlife. We toured the islands on our own terms and had our own space while we did it. Great experience and I highly recommend Friday Harbor Boat Rentals.

Great experience!

Review 07 Jul 2019

Noah and his wife were stellar folks that made the boat rental easy. Despite ferry issues, caution paid to a Saturday summer excursion, they were flexible planning the time and return process as easy as it comes. Half the price around Seattle, twice the scenery. 5/5

Review 04 Jul 2019

Charter and Boat Rental in Friday Harbor. Owner Noah is super friendly and professional. Boats are well maintained and suitable for a crabbing, fishing or just touring around in style. Captain your own boat or Noah can provide a captain to show you the best places.

Review 24 Jun 2019

Noah was a pleasure to work with at Friday Harbor Boat Rentals. He covered all the necessary information to ensure that we got out onto the water and did so safely! In addition to that, he gave us some great recommendations on places to go around the islands and the "must sees!" Reasonably priced, great condition for boats, and he really knew how to read the crowd we were in to see a lot of us did know about boating. Would definitely use again if we ever find our way to San Juan again!

Review 04 Jun 2019

Me and my wife had a blast the boat was running amazing and Noah was awesome! Showed us some cool spots to check out and we went everywhere we could. We recommend it for anyone looking for a amazing day out on the water. You won't regret renting with Friday harbor rentals. It was absolutely a blast.

Great experience for sure! Made our whole trip! You can tour all the islands at your own pace! Noah was so accommodating and the boat handled great. We will definitely be doing this again. Thank you Noah!!

Review 10 Apr 2019

So glad we did this! We took out Stryker which was easy to drive, with good protection from the elements. We visited Jone’s island, and explored along Spieden Island. Saw so much wildlife!! Boating at your own pace is the way to go. I suspect Noah’s business is going to take off. We will definitely be back!!

Review 09 Apr 2019

We had a great day exploring the islands! We rented a 22ft Smoker craft for the day. Noah was very friendly and accommodating. His boat was clean and ran great, and he gave us some fun recommendations of places to go around the islands. It was an awesome experience and we would highly recommend Noah.

Noah is amazing to work with. He made everything super easy and straight forward. His boat Stryker was a great boat to hit a lot of the San Juan Islands and explore. He gave great tips and ideas for us to enjoy the day. Would definitely rent with him again!

Great day on the water on the Alumaweld Stryker! Noah was very helpful and easy to work with. So much better than being stuck on a whale watching boat with 20 other people on somebody else's schedule.

We had an absolute blast out on the water for the day. We visited 5 different islands!! We spotted 3 Orca whales, many seals, 4 bald eagles & porpoises. We spotted weird wildlife on Seiden Island. Our boys (8,6,4) had a great time!! The boat was great and Noah filled us in on all kinds of great things to see!!

Reasonable prices and excellent service.

Review 01 Jun 2018

Noah was great to work with and has well maintained boats that are easy to use. Minimal restrictions and provides all safety items and a much needed cooler to keep your beverages cold. Noah provided an itinerary and estimate of time needed for each area. Would recommend to all interested in captaining their own trip to the nearby islands.

Review 30 May 2018

We rented a fishing boat over Memorial Day weekend. Noah was very helpful and the boat was so clean it looked brand new. Pick up and drop off was quick and efficient. Their location in Friday Harbor was super convenient. We will definitely rent from this company again.

What a great experience! The paperwork process was quick and easy. Noah was very helpful with destinations to visit while out on the boat. From his advice, my husband and I got to see a bald eagle, an Island full of visible wildlife, seals, otters and tons of beautiful scenery. Highly recommend taking a boat out from Friday Harbor Boat Rental!

Noah and his girlfriend are the best. I recommend them highly. Safety was their number one concern and the equipment was superior. We cannot wait to come back and see them.
