Hire a boat, hit the water for Mother’s Day in Moreton Bay

Hire a boat, hit the water for Mother’s Day in Moreton Bay

If your mum would enjoy a few hours out on the water, but you don’t own a boat … don’t worry there are plenty of hire options in the Moreton Bay Region.

We’ve come up with a list of those who have pulled up the anchor after some COVID-19 restrictions were eased. So, book your vessel and give mum a Mother’s Day experience to remember.

There are still some restrictions – boats can only be hired to family members from the one household, or two people from different addresses. If in doubt, ask the hire operator.

You can choose from a half day or a full day, plan your journey, or simply hop aboard and the skipper will take you to some of their favourite spots. When your day is over there’s nothing more to do than tie the boat up from where you left and cook your catch or decide what to do for dinner. Phone 0404 188 192 or visit the website
