Have A Question
A. No license required and yes, provided you are over the age of 21 or have at least one of the crew 21 years or over you are away!
A. One of our qualified skippers will spend about one hour briefing your crew on the operations, safety features and navigation of the vessel. Our skipper will spend a short time with you on the water while underway to ensure you are confident and happy. Then away you go!
A. 24hour phone support – twice daily scheduled call “ins” via text.
A. Food, drinks, personal towels and clothing and binoculars. Everything else is supplied. Ice & bait available at our Marina.
A. Each vessel is supplied with a 12 foot dinghy and 6hp outboard motor. (6HP outboard motor, see pricing), 25 litres Dinghy fuel included with hired motor, all in one price! Bring your own boat provided it is less that 4.5m in length – fenders and tow rope required.
A. From our marina at Tin Can Bay (in Snapper Creek), to the Kingfisher Resort on Fraser Island (approximately 80 Klms as the crow flies). Add on all the creeks and anchorages on the way there and you could cover over 200 Klms of waterway.
No spectacular buildings or water traffic to annoy those who want a paradise of peace & quiet, just a wonderful feeling of getting back to nature.
A. We provide secure lock up parking, just enquire when booking.
What Others Are Saying About Us
We Really Enjoyed the Experience
The boat itself was absolutely spotless and was furnished with everything we could possibly need to ensure that our holiday would be enjoyable. Well, enjoy it we certainly did! The weather was perfect (which you probably arranged as well) and, as a person who has fished all around the world, I have never caught such a range of fish in one place. The fishing was so good, in fact, that we stayed anchored in the one spot for the entire five days!
The quality of your overall product, from the friendly, competent service, to the boat and its accessories is an absolute credit to you and your team, and I am more than pleased to recommend Luxury Afloat to anyone who wants a very special holiday.

Regulars for 26 Years
For the past 10-15 years we have been hiring 2 boats every year from Luxury Afloat for a mens family fishing trip and in between the bigger boats when our women want to join us.
We have experienced a variety of standards of service and efficiency over that time. We returned last Friday from our 2005 trip and all participants agreed that this was our best ever in terms of the quality of the boats presentation and efficiency plus the service from your self and staff was excellent. We love the Great Sandy Straits and the peace and tranquility of living on the boats but when the back up from the owner is seen and felt positively then it all adds to a memorable experience.
Hopefully in 2006 we will be hiring 3 boats and taking some of the grandchildren for the first time.
Greg thanks for a good holiday.
Magnificent & Memorable Holiday
P.S. Give Skipper a big pat from all of us
