2020 – Year of disruption… for everyone.

First we had to close for months due to #covid19 and then were not able to operate our beach gear hire with the restrictions in place. Now, at the Coochie Boat Hire, we are currently facing an unrelated health issue that will necessitate major surgery in December. For this reason, 

 we are currently not open for kayaks and other beach gear on the beach and we will not take firm bookings or deposits for boat hires right now. 

We will put your name down for a hire date, and get back to you once we know how things are going.  

We know our clients will understand these are constraints out of our control and that as a small family business we just have to work around it.. and health comes first. 

We thank all of you for your ongoing support and patronage. 

We take eftpos on the beach.

Booking Deposit and Cancellation

A booking deposit of $100 is payable at the time of reservation in order to secure your booking. In the event of cancellation by the hiring party, the booking deposit is non-refundable after 14 days prior to your date of hire. 
Boating is an outdoor activity and we cannot guarantee the weather...
We want you to have a fun day on the bay, and be comfortable and safe!
In the event of persistent rain or strong wind, in excess of 18 knots, by law, we will have to postpone your booking. You can reschedule your booking for another day  in the next 12 months (according to availability) and we will transfer your deposit to that date.
