Sail the Great Sandy Strait

Bareboat & Skippered Charters in paradise

Exploring our water wonderland

Welcome to Fraser Island Boat Charters, where you can hire a boat and explore the waters of Hervey Bay and Fraser Island. If we’re passionate about one thing it’s how incredible our backyard, the Fraser Coast, is. Our fleet is based in Hervey Bay – home to calm seas (protected by the one and only Fraser Island). Hervey Bay is also known as the best place in the world to catch a glimpse of the Humpback Whales as they stop along their annual migration.

Once you leave the Great Sandy Straits Marina you’ll be greeted with views across Round Island, Woody Island and over to the world’s largest sand island in all her glory. The local aboriginal (Butchulla) people refer to Fraser Island as K’Gari which translates to ‘paradise’, this is something you will completely understand when you see this beauty.

Hiring one of our luxury catamaran vessels will you give an intimate and exclusive opportunity to sail these waters in style and at your own pace. Fraser Island Boat Charters offers skipper-your-own boat hire with plenty of inclusions to make your trip as easy as it can be. Just bring your bags and essential gear and we’ll sort the rest for you!
