Welcome to Cairns Boat Hire!
Cairns Boat Hire is situated in the beautiful Marlin Marina in Cairns, Queensland. In front of the Reef Fleet Terminal at 1 Spence street, our custom made floating office awaits. Our pontoon and dingy boat hire service offers a different means of exploring Cairns and the Far North.
Hiring our self-drive boats is a popular pastime with locals and visitors to Cairns. Enjoy fishing, romantic outings and crocodile spotting along Trinity Inlet or see beautiful Far North Queensland from the water. Enjoy all day adventures or head out to catch a crab. We can supply fishing rods and bait and give you some clues about the good spots for catching fish.
You can explore the maze of creeks that are home to some spectacular wildlife or meander down past the fishing boats, navy base and the yacht squadron to the southern end of Admiralty Island.
The Dinghy and Pontoon boats are supplied with fuel - no license is required - climb aboard and head off for a unique experience.
We open 7 days per week all year round from 8.00 am to 5.00 pm. Hires can be organised for earlier starts by arrangement.
Hire arrangements are for daylight hours only.
