Malta has a typical Mediterranean climate, and it is well suited for boat rentals. The boat charter season starts in April and goes on until November. The temperature can vary between 20ºC to 40ºC, and the sun shines brightly during these months. From June to September is the high season. Therefore, the best times to visit Malta are April to May and October to November.
Renting a boat during this period allows you to enjoy an even more joyful vacation as there are fewer tourists at this time of the year.
You might enjoy visiting Malta between December and March, but it is too cold for swimming. Usually, the winds and the rain pick up in this period as well. We would recommend chartering a boat in Malta in this season only to experienced sailors as you will need to know how to maneuver a boat in unpredictable weather conditions and in strong winds.
Be sure to book your boat well in advance as more than 40% of the fleet is already booked by May.

Renting a boat in Malta is easier than you think! The good news is that you don’t need a boat license when renting a small boat. However, if you’re looking at renting a boat with more than 90hp, you do need a Nautical license.
An alternative is renting a boat with a captain / skipper. The beauty of this option is that you don’t need to worry about anything when it comes to operating the boat. Also, a local skipper can show you all the most stunning spots that you might miss otherwise.
Skippered boat rental means that the boat is rented with a professional crew consisting of a skipper/captain who is responsible for the maneuvering of the boat. In several cases the skipper is aided by other crew members as well.
A bareboat rental is an arrangement for the chartering or rental of a boat, whereby no captain / skipper is included as part of the rental; instead, the person who rents the boat from the supplier is responsible for maneuvering the boat, and therefore they must have the appropriate nautical license.
If you have a boating nautical license and good experience, take a bareboat. This will add more freedom and a high level of privacy to your vacation. If you don't have a license or just want to relax and have nothing to think about - choose a boat with a skipper.
