Port Douglas Boat Hire
Departing from the Marina Mirage, explore photograph and fish 15km of tranquil mangrove forest at your leisure. See some of the diverse wildlife that inhabits this magical area, perhaps even a sunbaking crocodile. Throw a line over, catch tonight's dinner and relax as the world goes by.
You choose one hour or all day, single solitude or with family and friends. Whatever you decide this is one of Port's best value for money activities and you don't need a licence to operate one.
