Boat HireWhen it comes to getting to the places you simply can't get to by land - and you don't own a boat - then boat hire makes excellent sense.

The fact is many fish species avoid areas where they are likely to be exposed to predators.  So offshore and inshore reefs and structure are often out of range of land-based fishos.

Hiring a boat can be a simple and economical option.  Often requiring little preparation by you and in some instances, exceptions are made on not having a boating license.  Though some restrictions do apply.

Boat hire businesses are scattered around Victoria.  Both on the coast and in the inland rivers and lakes.

Hiring a boat can be a great way to bet to places that you simply can’t reach by foot.

Some boat hire companies allow you to hire even if you do not possess a license.  Though they do impose restrictions on what you can and cannot do.

Most operators treat their boats, equipment and customers with respect.

However, it is your responsibility to make sure you have the correct safety equipment – life jackets, flairs etc – and that they are in good working order.
