My kids and I had a fabulous time today. Trip was catered to my kids requests. Chris was amazing with my pre teen kids, all of them saying how much fun they had. It was special finding our own quiet spots with noone else around....More

So glad you enjoyed the day, nothing like finding the 'locals' areas.
My family and I were lucky enough to spend an amazing day out on the water. Loved every minute and will most definitely be back again. Thanks a million Chris and Danielle for your friendly and professional service.

Was our pleasure, so glad you enjoyed it nothing like getting the kids out on the water and enjoying our beautiful water ways. Cant wait to see you again.
I went halves with a mate and we hired the Sportsrider for a day. Great boat! Fast, roomy and rides well. We tracked along the spectacular coast of Fraser island following big schools of feeding tuna. Hooked eight of them in the end, as well...More

Was our pleasure, always a great day when the fish play ball! Big schools of tuna lead to explosive times but guarantee smiles all round. Look forward to seeing you next time.
Have had two really amazing trips with BOAB boats, fishing, wake boarding and even a stop off at Fraser Island for lunch. Really easy and affordable, will definitely be hiring the boat again! Thanks so much

Thanks Lucy, nothing better than lunch on Fraser Island. Unlike the surf on the eastern side the western beach is normally calm and allows you to stop and get ashore wherever you like.
Chris and Danielle were really helpful to us getting our boat license and building our confidence in boating. Very friendly, knowledgeable and happy to offer all their local advice. Highly recommended!

Thanks, that's what we are here for, boating in new areas can be a bit challenging at times and local knowledge is always valuable. Our briefings always include current conditions, what to look out for and where the best areas for boating will be.
The boat was at the jetty when we arrived - nothing to do but jump on and get going on our Australia Day adventure. We had a great day on the water, sight seeing, and fishing. Chris and Danielle were absolutely wonderful. Excellent - would...More

Thanks Myree, glad you had an awesome day out, nothing better than having the family on the water for the holidays.
Great service. The boat was in the water ready to go when we arrived.
Across Fraser Straights there was some wind chop but after Moon Point the water was calm and a beautiful blue/green colour washing upon the whitest sand with not a foot print...More

Glad you had a great time and yes best of all for you, no clean up or towing you just get to enjoy the boat with no stress. Hope to see you again soon.
Since my other half did his boat license with boab, we have rented boats from Danielle and Chris multiple times now. Great days out on the great sandy straits, comfortable spacious boats for up to 6-7 people. Whales seem to love the orange colour and...More

Thanks so much for the kind words. Not too long now before we start to see whales arriving back in the bay, its a great way to see them up close and with much smaller crowds in your own boat plus all the extra freedom...More
