And, fishing enthusiasts can stock up on frozen and live bait, lures and all the correct gear right here in our tackle shop!

Take a leisurely cruise through limestone gorges, do a spot of fishing, visit the Princess Margaret Rose Cave or picnic in the Lower Glenelg National Park. For travel to the caves, allow about an hour and 15 minutes travel each way, and about the same time for a caves tour (tours conducted on the hour most days).

Half-Cabin Crusiers and Dinghies

We have half-cabin cruisers (for up to 6 people) plus open dinghys (for up to 4 people). Our boats are easy to operate and each half-cabin cruiser has forward controls - dinghies and half-cabs even have canopies to help keep you comfortable all year round.

Pontoon Boat

Our pontoon boat seats up to 10 people and is great for parties and celebrations of every kind. Lounge style seating and an all-weather canopy make for comfortable year-round cruising. Take some refreshments and catch up with friends or family, even take a barbeque or picnic to have in the beautiful national park.
