Great day, great friendly service. Explained instructions well and great communicator. Everything went smoothly. We enjoyed the waters on Australia day, the boat was in great condition and had everything we needed. Although the water was a bit rocky we had a great time. Wish we went for longer. Thanks will book again

Amazing day out on the harbour. Whole experience from booking to getting on the water was so efficient and effortless. Dan was an absolute legend in guiding us through making the most of our time out and could not recommend more. Awesome value for money and an all round 10/10 experience. The boat was well looked after and had a new motor and equipment that was easy to look after and use. Perfect for making the most of our beautiful ‘backyard’. Thanks team!

Am I the 100 Reviewer?!. - 5 Stars for service and enjoyment. I hired the cruiseabout 610 for 4 hours. I've been meaning to make use of my boat license and this was a fantastic opportunity to take out a great boat with a brand new motor that had only been out once before.The best thing is there no need to launch the boat in and out of the ramp or clean it, or even fill it with fuel. It takes out all the ugliness of owning a boat. Just rock up at 8am and back at 12. Will definitely do it again!
