7.85m Hire Boat

The 7.85m Preston Craft Island Cab Walk around is the ultimate vessel for getting out the back of Ningaloo Reef . Definitely suited for the more serious, angler, diver or surfer, this hire boat can take you 10 miles off anywhere along Ningaloo Reef  & Coral Bay Coast and anywhere across the other side of the Exmouth gulf.


This is the only hire boat in Western Australia that can go up to 10 miles anywhere off the Western Australian coast.


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.

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 10 rods and equipped for outriggers The Leos can get you out there and amongst it. This hire boat is set up for outriggers and can be hired from us also.

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 paradise. 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 Leos is  perfectly suited for your next diving adventure on our Ningaloo Reef & Coral Bay Coast.


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
