A great day out

We had a great day out with Cairns Boat Hire. We caught lots of fish in the inlets and Malcolm provided great service. We will definitely be back!

Great Experience

Had lots of fun and excitement being on the a boat esp. on your own the first time. Just follow the guidelines and local regulation, all was fun and safe, so long you are responsible and have safety in mind. Richard was friendly and helpful on getting you up to speed on what need to know and your possible needs if you are unprepared like me. Had an enjoyable great fun half day cos water rafting awaits in the afternoon. (Reluctant to stop though)
