Firstly we are starting with Clifton Springs Boat Hire. Offering loads of information about finishing, they are the perfect option for fishing boat hire in Geelong. They generally focus on fishing trips and sightseeing. 

A bonus of their four-seater boat is that you don’t need a boat license! You’ll be able to hire and take a boat out with your mates, having a great sightseeing trip out, but you’ll need to stick within a 2km limit. 

Clifton Springs Boat Hire has you covered if you’re looking for a fishing trip. They’ll provide you with fishing rods, fishing licenses, and fish cleaning facilities. They’ll even help you with the best advice on where to fish. 

Their prices are also very reasonable, with a four-seater costing $105 for 2 hours and a 4.5m boat (5 seaters) costing $120 for two hours. They’ll only charge $40 per hour after that.

Beachlea Boat Hire offers safe fishing trips with all the safety gear you need so you can fish from dawn to dusk at the best fishing spots. If you’re looking to go out on your own, you can hire boats that don’t require a boat license. Check their site for the hourly and day rates.

 They also offer double canoes, stand-up paddleboards, and a complete snorkeling set so you can experience the sea and a sea adventure for a few hours. The prices range from $15 to $25 an hour. Well worth it!

My personal favorite is their glass-bottom canoes so you can see the sea life below you as Geelong’s water is crystal-clear. A bonus, it’s only $15 per hour!

Beachlea Boat Hire has an efficient online booking system to book your boating adventure easily. Just add your details, which boat you want, and the duration. Easy as that. 

Head to the beach at Indented Head; it’s about half an hour from central Geelong.
