Ready for true "pier-to-pier" service? Miami startup BoatBay promises to abide by that very slogan.
Joining competitors Boatsetter, Boatbound and GetMyBoat, who allow renters to obtain a boat from an individual private owner or from a booking service with a captain, BoatDay is a little different. And that difference is with a partnership with a famous name: Uber.
BoatDay users in South Florida can request an Uber to drive them to their BoatDay transportation.
According to SFBJ, BoatDay has offered 40 boat trips each month since their July launch.
