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

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.

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
