Boat Hire

Boat Hire Rates (without skipper)

There is no boat licensed required to operate the vessel in the NT, however you must have some experience operating boats to hire the vessel. You also have the option of heading out on a fishing charter for a day with our expert guide, Jon Russo, before hiring the boat and skippering yourself.
