Take your boating experience to the next level
Boating Partnerships takes pride in delivering the very best, not only in the choice and type of vessel we provide for our owners, but also in the extended services we offer. It can be time-consuming to prepare for your next trip; there's stocking supplies, planning activities, preparing the vessel and perhaps even finding the best skipper and crew. But, with Boating Partnerships, you don't need to stress about any of that as our concierge services give you access to everything you need to ensure a true walk-on walk-off experience, no matter where you board your vessel.
Captain and crew services
Whether you're after a captain so you can sit back and relax for the day or you're hosting a special event and require a chef to wait staff for that extra touch, we can organise experienced and friendly crew for you, no matter the location.
When exploring a new waterway for the first time we believe it is beneficial to take a local skipper along to learn all the “need to know” information of the area, this will increase your confidence at the helm and greatly enhance your future experiences on those waterways. This is particularly important in places such as The Whitsundays where experienced skippers can show you the best routes around the islands, teach you the Dos-and-Don’ts of boating in the area and share the best kept secret bays and anchorages of the islands and the Great Barrier Reef.
Should you wish to explore a new waterway close to your home port but you are not so keen to make the passage yourself, we have qualified captains available to drive the vessel to your desired location and meet you there.
Catering and supplies
We want our clients to be able to enjoy as much time on the water as possible. Whether you’re going out for the day, night or a week you can board your vessel to find fully stocked fridges, fresh seafood and a chilled bottle of champagne ready for corking. Together with our dedicated contractors, we have the ability to also offer delicious platters, canapés and cocktail packages to suit your liking.
We can supply fishing guides all year round at any location and they'll bring all the necessary bait and gear for you to fish straight from your boat. This service is perfect for those that are experienced at fishing but want to explore new grounds, those that are trying fishing for the first time or for anyone just wanting to relax and ensure guests catch fish and create some fun memories.
Transfers and transport
From Port Douglas to Sydney and everywhere in-between, we can arrange for transfers between the airport and your vessel as well as private chauffeurs during your stay. Should you wish to explore more than the local waterways on your own, we can source rental cars and other transport.
We will happily organise all reservations and bookings for all kinds of experiences including restaurants, scenic flights and more. Just advise us on what you're looking for and when you'd like to do it and we’ll take care of the rest.
We are available to help with any issues that may arise, no matter how big or small, during your time on the water. This includes (but is not limited to) needing additional food or drink delivered, providing medical supplies and additional fuel left for the tender. We are on call 24/7 and will happily deliver or organise a delivery of any items and provide any assistance that you may need.
