Sometime when you’re out and about looking for Cairns and regional attractions you may be in a position where you are after things to do in Cairns on a budget. You don’t have to fork out a small fortune to have a good day out and Cairns Boat Hire is living proof!
Located on Cairns Marlin Marina, Cairns Boat Hire is a fantastic option for those looking for a great day out on the waters of the tropics without breaking the bank.
With a fully stocked tackle shop and selection of boats, the gang at Cairns Boat Hire provide the opportunity for people to explore the mangrove systems of Trinity Inlet, a local favourite for fishing and crocodile spotting. Trinity Inlet is home to a solid range of fish species including grunter, GT, mangrove jack, bream and the prized barramundi to name a few. Trinity Inlet is also a hot spot for mud crabs, so you also have the opportunity to hire crab pots along with fishing gear (if required). Nothing like freshly caught mud crab for lunch or dinner.
Boat hire is available for an hour up to a full day, with their larger pontoon boats boasting an 8 passenger capacity. Better yet, boat and fishing licenses are not required, so you can get right into it and head out onto the water at your own pace. There’s nothing like a bit of fishing and a few cold ones and the backdrops of mountains surrounding Cairns make for a fantastic photo opportunity.
