I booked a boat last minute to take my family over to Fraser Island. Had an absolutely incredible day! The boat was clean and clearly really well looked after. Fantastic and friendly service with great local knowledge. I wouldn't think of using anyone else!

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.

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.
