Leisure Boat Hire in Sydney

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.

Your boat hire from Manly Kayak Centre includes maps, paddles, life jackets, ropes, and anchor. It is simple to drive, and no boat license is required.
