We are locals and have only just tried out Bills Boat hire. Was a spur of the moment adventure and we were lucky enough to get a boat within 45mins. Friendly staff who gave easy and clear instructions. Will definitely go again! Thanks Bills Boat...More

We took out a family bike with our 2 year old and 5 year old. Riding along the esplanade was a great little family adventure and good exercise for hubby and I. Easy to contact and great experience all round.

This is not the first time that we have used Bill’s Boat Hire and yet again we were met with lovely service. Kerrie was wonderful and was up for a chat which is always lovely to see. We will definitely return next September holidays!! 😌

This was the second time we've hired boats from Bill's Boats. Good friendly staff with a laid back approach but still take safety and instructions seriously. Great way to shoot over to Bribie Island for the morning or afternoon with friends.

On high tide, it was low tide. No where to fish. Got told to break the law when driving the boat with the signage. The $260 which was paid for the day was very disappointing.More
