Boat 4 Hire Provides Snapper Fishing Classes

Book our Bow Rider and head to the best fishing spots! Since it’s in survey for night use, you can beat the boat ramp queues.

We are asked where snapper can be caught. One location you can check on is in the calm waters of  Yarra Rivera near Pier 35 Marina. Need a proof? Just take a look at Mark’s catch on the photo!

With Boat 4 Hire boats, you don’t have to go far to get a good catch. Our new open hours mean you can be on the water as early as 6:30am to enjoy more fishing time!

Ask Zac, our fishing expert, about snapper fishing classes. Take your private guide and learn from the best. No more coming back empty-handed! Go start snapper fishing and head off to the fish shop for dinner.


No Boat License Required

Great news! No boat license required to use a Boat 4 Hire boat that has 8hp capacity.

There are lots of boating adventures to do in Melbourne. Why not take the family for a day out (up to five people) on our rugged Polycraft boat? There are miles and miles of waterways to explore, from Docklands to Herring Island, Southbank and the Crown Casino. Where the rowing sculls glide by! Take the other route and go up the Maribyrnong River, Flemington Race Course to the Angles Tavern. Another option is go to Hobsons Bay and Williamstown. Because our hire boats in Melbourne function in sheltered waters, they can operate up to 30knots of wind in contrast to the cut off point of 15knots in the bay!

Under current marine regulations, no boat license is required on engine sizes under 10hp.  All our boats are authorized by the government as safe to use. Also, Boat 4 Hire boats come with all the safety gears. And for every boat use, full instruction is provided for you!


If It’s Blowing, We Keep You Going!

The unusually strong winds do not mean you can’t go boating. If it’s blowing in the bay with more than 15knots, our Boat 4 Hire boats can still run. You can still go fishing in the Warmies, Williamstown and the Yarra. So, don’t miss out on a good day as other operators are not able to use their boats during heavy winds. We can look after you all year round!

With our location on the Yarra, you can get to the ” warmies” and there are other catches on the Maribyrnong River, too. Check out the links and be amazed of what you can get from fishing!

So, if it’s blowing more than 15knots and you find no hire boat around Melbourne, call us! We can bring you on the water at an affordable cost- boats on budget prices!
