Bill's Boat Hire is easily accessible providing a choice of activities. I hired the kayaks and it was an easy process and Bill was very friendly. It was great fun and Pumistone Passage in Golden Waters is the perfect location. Had a great morning. Will definitely do again.

We are locals, and we rented a tinny for the first time, they were so kind and patient, and service was great!! me and my boys loved it so much, and would highly recommend it to anyone local or visiting to go for a couple of hours or a day and explore the waterways of golden beach and pelican waters.

My husband and two children hired a kayak, conditions were well explained and safety was a top priority. My family had a great time, it was a highlight of their holiday! Thank you

We rented 2 push bikes from Bill's Boat Hire and Bike Hire recently and had a great afternoon cycling along the foreshore. The only downside was that the bikes needed abit of maintenance with regards to the gears being hard to change.

You are so right about the gears, the maintenance on the bikes are a constant for us - especially being exposed to the salt air all the time. Thanks for the feedback and we really appreciate your 4 star rating. Great to hear you had a great afternoon cycling. Cheers. Craig, Kerrie and the Team @ Bills Boat Hire.
