Be the captain of your ship and enjoy a fantastic day with your family or friends with this self-drive boat hire on the beautiful Wallis Lake in Forster. Before departure, take part in a safety briefing to familiarise yourself with the pontoon boat before being supplied with a detailed map as you set off on your eight hour adventure.

Take yourself and your mates around the waterways, in and out of the many islands, and through the working oyster farms. You might even be fortunate enough to see a school of dolphins on your travels. If you fancy a spot of fishing you can cast lines in search of bream, flathead, or whiting with the fresh live worms sold at the shop or you can simply sit back and enjoy the serenity.

Feel free to bring your own food and drinks to take advantage of the BBQ facilities aboard this pontoon boat. This is a trip best enjoyed in the company of good friends and pets are also welcome.
