IT IS PEAK FESTIVE SEASON and we are open seven days per week. We get our boats ready in advance to get the Snapper Sunrise groups underway and fishing just as the sun rises. Our motivated team then keeps sending groups throughout the day until just before dark. Bluey's Boat Hire operates from the home of the Famous Five Reefs … awesome and safe fishing fishing spots all within 5-15 minutes by boat that see large numbers of monster fish landed each and every year. At Bluey's Boat Hire we have new private easy boarding jetties and a friendly kiosk with a full range of bait, tackle and refreshments.
