Unlicensed Boats

Don’t have a boat license? We’ve got you covered. Explore, fish and relax in the beautiful Pioneer Bay with one of our Smartwave boats.


4.2m “Smartwave”

No experience is necessary and no license is required. The self-drive hire boats have a 9.9 Yamaha 4 stroke motor and are available for half or full day hires.

Find a good fishing spot and catch your dinner, explore the bays of Airlie Beach or go sightseeing and spot some turtles and dugongs. Please note that there is no coral in the bay area so snorkelling is not applicable.

All hires include fuel, lifejackets, built in eskies, bait board and two rod holders.
