Sue was wonderful to deal with, the boat was great...have to say the fishing was awesome. Hooked onto a fish that snapped my cheap ass rod. Do your self a favour just hire them from Sue , she has all the gear....thanks again for a great day, and Scout is cute too 🐶

On a free day decided to give this self drive boat hire ago , after a 5 min briefing , don’t tempt the crocs with a swim off we went , headed up river as far as the golf course , about 40 min to get there , put a line in the water to try our luck , lots of bites but couldn’t hook up , Seen a small croc in this area but missed the photo . A great way to spend 2 or 3 hours . A great morning out

We absolutely LOVED this experience! Sue was amazing! Very friendly and helpful. The boat was easy to use and the folder provided was very informative. We found this to be one of the highlights of our honeymoon! Whilst we didn’t see any crocs we had such a relaxing time and enjoyed having a go at some fishing. We also managed to spot the cutest little baby moray eel right next to the marina office! We only did two hours but could have easily booked another hour or two! We will definitely be back!

We called up last minute and luckily able to book a boat. We were welcomed by the fantastic Sue who was friendly, fun and great help. We headed out to the estuary where we caught a selection of Brim and a prize fish Mango Jack! A fantastic experience and couldn’t recommend this company more highly, thank you Sue! Jonny and Lara 👍👍👍
