The service offers a variety of boats of different sizes to help get you out onto the water, where the fish are, at a reasonable price.

I have observed the Bluey’s hire boats operating while I’ve been fishing on the Mordialloc Pier. Their customers seem cheery enough. The Google reviews for this service are nearly all positive.

Billed as a “No License or Experience Required” boat hire. Caters for individuals and groups. Aimed at fishing they are also suitable for seeing the sights just offshore on Port Phillip Bay.

At the time of writing, bookings are from the Blueys Boat Hire website on their Bookings Page.

Make sure you check out Bluey’s What To Bring page, particularly note the requirement of a Car License, Mobile Phone, seasonal clothing, food & drink (bring a cooler or Eski – but skip the grog !!), bait, tackle and rods.

Additionally, Bluey’s website state they do have rods, tackle and bait, at an additional charge, should you have none of your own.

Hiring a boat is an economical and relatively simple way of getting out on the bay fishing.

No towing, launching or retrieving on busy boat ramp hassles.

For many people this makes boat hire an attractive option.

Getting a few nautical miles offshore can make all the difference to your catch rate.

Around Mordialloc, there are a number of great offshore reefs and drop-offs that provide excellent fishing opportunities.

Plus there tends to be a little less pressure on fish populations than you find on a pier or beach.

It’s quieter, offers a range of habitats and increases your mobility towards “where the fish are biting.”

G'day!

I'm Dave, I live and fish in and around Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.
When it comes to fishing I love going out to land-based fishing spots, heading out in the tinny (aka an Aluminum Boat) and kayak fishing.

I've been fishing since I was a teen. Beginning way back in the 1970s. It was a hobby I picked up myself as my family certainly had no interest. Making me the black sheep! My favourite fish is Flathead and Snapper. Though I'm partial to Flake (Gummy Shark) and Calamari too! While I enjoy fishing for freshwater species like Redfin and Murray Cod I prefer eating saltwater species. They're just so mouth-wateringly tasty!

I love writing about some of my favourite Melbourne Fishing Spots while fishing around Victoria. As well as the tackle I use and test.
If you see me while you're out fishing say "G' day" - I'll be the one in a bush hat.

When I'm not fishing I'm working on my websites, such as Getfished, or writing computer software (my profession.)

I try to be as accurate as possible on this website. Most of the information is based on personal experience. However, if you spot an error or think there's something that I should add - no worries! Please use the Contact Form.
