Self-Drive Leisure Boats

Our self-drive leisure boat is the perfect choice if you want to explore Manly's waterways in comfort and safety.  With their aluminium hulls, these vessels are extremely stable and robust. 

The boat contains maps, paddles, life jackets, ropes and anchor.  It is simple to drive, and no boat license is required.  So pack the picnic, sunscreen, hat and camera, get behind the controls and discover the magic of Sydney Harbour in your own self-drive leisure boat!
