Available for hire
There are two boats available:
475 Quintrex Top Ender with a 60Hp Yamaha motor
The Qunitrex was invented for the ‘top end’ and has become one of Australia’s favourite fishing boats.
It has a barra-bass tournament style layout, deep sides, Blade hull and Flared bow making it perfect for remote creeks, estuarties and open bays.
Like sport angling? This one is for you.
It is licensed to carry three people.
3.8m Savage Tinny with a 15Hp Yamaha tiller steer engine
The Savage is a basic package which will allow you to enjoy life on the water on a budget.
This will get you out on the water with ease. It is licensed to carry two people.
While there is no requirement to hold a boat licence in the Northern Territory, those who hire the boats will need to undergoing a safety induction to ensure the skipper has the adequate skills needed.
If operating a boat you must know the boat laws and obey them.
Each boat is equipped with a full information pack detailing the four main rivers, as well as the location of boat ramps.
For tourists (and locals) it includes a list of unsafe places known for crocodiles, as well as a Fish Finder magazine and all the fishing hot spots.
“Each of the boats are all compliant with current marine standards and have all the safety gear, oars and operational information on board,” Dior said.
Also available are two standard two-horse floats.
Each is a straight load float, and cost $100 per day to hire.
