The Bommie is a powerful outer reef break left hander located 700m from the Bommie carpark. The Bommie is not recommended for inexperienced surfers. Can be paddled out to, but its a little sharkie. So for a abit of reassurance you can launch the Leos instead.

Murion Islands: Cranking left hander when the swells up on the South Island. Park the boat up in the channel between the 2 islands, and have this barrelling left all to yourself. Needs at least a 2m swell running for this left to work.

Whale watching
From June to October, humpback whales migrate between their summer breeding grounds and their winter feeding grounds. The waters of the Exmouth Gulf and the West Side 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.  Whale shark season extends from March to September and when they are in abundance its not hard to spot one of these beauties in one of your own boat.  Imagine sharing this experience with just family and friends and not on a tour with 40 others.

Why Hire From Us?

More Days Out on the Water with our Boats

Our boats are built by renown WA boat builders who know what WA wind and ocean conditions can throw at you.  Nothing worse than to get all the way up here after planning your long awaited fishing trip and find your boat cant handle that extra bit of wind or swell that WA can be renowned for. Our boats are designed to cope with all types of elements that are thrown at you.  From 15knot winds to 2m swell.  With high gunwales, ample shade, great hull designed these boats have proven themselves over the many conditions that fisherman have gone out in.

Don't Trust your Life out at Sea with Backyard Operators

Hiring a boat is NOT like hiring a car!

When you break down in a car you can just pull over on the side of the road.  Not so with a boat.  Ocean conditions can change very quickly, especially in WA.  You want to make sure that you are in a vessel that is well maintained and seaworthy.  Don’t risk your life and safety hiring boat based on price alone.  DO check the operators marine experience, how often the motors are serviced, how long have they been in the industry,  how many marine incidents have their boats been involved in.  The list can go on.  All we can say is that we have been in the industry for nearly 20 years, Warren is a Master 5 class skipper with over 30 years in the commercial marine industry in WA and has lived in fished around Exmouth for over 30 years.  No other operator can offer the expertise in boating, fishing and navigating the Exmouth Coast

Largest Fleet More Choices- Less Down Time

With over 12 different vessels to choose from, there is virtually no way you won’t be able to get on the water and explore Ningaloo Reef.  With a large back up fleet, if anything does go wrong, we pretty much have a boat on standby to get you back out on the water again.  We have a boat for any purpose, so that if the elements make it unsuitable for one type of activity then there is always something else you can do.
