05 May Do I need a licence to hire a boat?
One of the most commonly asked questions is whether you need a boat licence to hire a boat and put simply, you don’t.
Why don’t I need a boat licence?
- All our hire boats are speed restricted to less than 10 knots
- You are given instruction on how to use the boat
- A map is provided with ideas on what you can do for your time
I don’t have any boating experience, can I still hire one?
Of course! We get plenty of fresh faced captains coming to hire a boat on Noosa River for the first time. Provided you abide by the instruction given by our staff it will all be smooth sailing.
Noosa River is a gorgeous system to explore with great locations for beaching and swimming, getting food or even trying your luck at fishing. Check out our “What can I do” and “Places of interest” sections for some great ideas!
What do I need to hire a boat?
You must be at least 18 years of age to hire a boat and also have photo ID. A security deposit ($100/$200) is required prior to departure.
How do I book?
Our website gives you the option to book online with live availability. This is the easiest and fastest way to book a boat and ensures that we have a boat available for you when you arrive.
