Bribie Island is a well-known lifestyle location – and for good reason.
Beautiful beaches and pristine waters within easy distance of amenities and major cities can be hard to find, after all.
But while many people head to Bribie Island to enjoy the beach, have you ever considered enjoying a day on the water itself?
Boating Around Bribie Island
At GemLife Bribie Island, many of our homeowners have boats onsite so they can enjoy a day on the water whenever they like.
But if you don’t own a boat yourself, that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a day at sea as well.
Several boat companies on Bribie Island hire out boats by the hour or by the day. These boats range from kayaks and canopy fishing boats that you don’t need a licence in order to operate, all the way up to a BBQ pontoon boat that seats ten people and other larger vessels.
Queensland law sets out many of the rules for boat safety, equipment, operation and maintenance for boats operating in Queensland waters. As the skipper of the boat, it’s important to ensure that you adhere to these regulations. If you’re hiring a vessel, one of the most important rules to keep in mind is that you’ll require a boat licence for any boat that’s powered by a motor greater than 6hp.
Boat Hire on Bribie
Boab Boat Hire, Bribie Island Boat Charters, Bribie Island Boat Hire, and Bribie Passage Kiosk & Boat Hire are four examples of businesses that hire out boats to people on Bribie Island.
Boab Boat Hire has boats for recreational and commercial use. They provide all safety equipment and you can get their boats on trailers, delivered, or ready to go on the water. Many people use their boats for a day of fishing, whale watching or sightseeing.
Bribie Island Boat Charters offers BBQ boats and canopy fishing boats – including boats that can be hired by people without a boat licence. Fuel and safety equipment are covered in their rates. A BBQ boat is certainly a fun way to spend time on the water!
Bribie Island Boat Hire has fully-equipped boats that can be skippered by people without a boat licence. They also hire out kayaks with paddles and life vests included in the hire price. Kayaking is a favourite Bribie activity, so it’s definitely worth considering!
Bribie Passage Kiosk & Boat Hire offer fishing boats, a BBQ pontoon boat and even a 44-foot houseboat available for hire. Their smaller boats can be used without a boat licence, but the bigger boats are pretty tempting if you have a licenced skipper available. They also hire out single and double kayaks by the hour.
