5.5m Hire Boat

The 5.5m Bushchook is Exmouth Boat Hire’s smallest plate aluminum boat. Suited for 3 people fishing and up to 5 if notall are fishing it has ample shade. The boat is somewhat lighter than the larger plate boats and offers the flexibility of being able to launch with relative ease at Coral Bay Boat Ramp. It is ideal for those not wanting to venture too far out the back off the Coral Bay Coast and across Exmouth Gulf and allow for trawling, reef fising & diving. With its high gunnwhales and plenty of shade it assures you of a dry ride out of the sun.

All our plate and polycraft boats have forward cabins to protect you from the weather and seas that our coast can throw at you.  Be wary of hiring cheaper alternatives that don't offer the forward cabin, shade and higher gunwhales. You will end up with a very wet and rough ride.



Game & Sport fishing:
Ideal set up for chasing pelagics like the Blue & Black Marlin and Sail fish, and Sport fishing for Cobia, Mackerel, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, GTs (Giant Trevally), queenies and many other demersals. With 8 rod holders and equipped for outriggers the 5.5m boat can get you out there and amongst it. 

Reef Fishing:
With an abundance of Coral bombies and reef flats there are plenty of resident Red Emperor, Coral Trout, Gold Band Snapper, Bluebone , Coronation Cod, the every elusive tripletail and many more species available for your gastronomic delight.

There are many world class diving sites accessible from both Exmouth and Coral Bay, to take you on the underwater experience of a lifetime. Fantastic coral formations, whale sharks, manta rays, dolphins, humpback whales, nudibranchs, starfish and anemones are just some of the fascinating marine life inhabiting the waters of the Ningaloo Reef Marine Park. Add to this the hundreds of species of coral and over 500 species of fish and you have a diver’s . CLICK HERE for more information on dive sites around Coral Bay and the Ningaloo Marine Park.
With its beamy deck, ladder and ample rear space to climb in and out of the boat, the 5.5m boat is perfectly suited for your next diving adventure on ou
paradiser Ningaloo Reef.


Waroora Station:

Grumpies:  is a powerful outer reef break left hander located south of Coral Bay towards Waroora Station.  You can access it by launching the boat from Coral Bay or using a dinghy and beach launching from 14 mile at Waroora Station


Whale watching

From June to October, humpback whales migrate between their summer breeding grounds and their winter feeding grounds. The waters off Coral Bay, Exmouth Gulf and all along the Ningaloo Coast are an ideal location to see the humpback whales playing and nursing their new born calves. Its not uncommon for boaters to see whale sharks.  What better way to see majestic & incredibly inquisitive creatures from the protected sides of this boat
