This fishing experience is easy fun in the sun! Don't worry about having all the gear for the job... it's all supplied for you! Travel to those elusive spots where the fish are biting, fast and furious. Experience the beauty of fishing on Sydney Harbour!
Ever wanted to travel out on the water to do a spot of fishing without needing to hire a guide? If you’re looking for the independence that boat ownership brings, then perhaps hiring a boat is the next best thing! Take the controls of your hired boat and follow the map to some of your favourite fishing spots in the northern end of the harbour.
A self-drive leisure boat is the perfect choice if you want to explore Manly's waterways in comfort and safety. They are 4.2m long and 2.2m wide and feature a 15hp motor, forward steering controls, a removable canopy and cushioned seating. A polyethylene hull construction provides maximum buoyancy, making them extremely stable and robust. In addition, they are simple to drive; no boat license required!
Licensed to carry up to 4 people, you can make a day of this experience with family and friends as you try to find out where the fish are biting.
Please note: The boat does not come with bait, however, we do sell bait for at the hiring point. Alternatively, you may bring your own.
IMPORTANT: You may take the boat to Collins Flat, Store Beach, Quarantine Beach, Reef Beach and more, however, the boat must not travel outside of the Quarantine Station or Dobroyd Head.
