Established for over 25 years, we are the Gold Coasts longest running boat hire company.

MIRAGE BOAT HIRE has been established for over 25 years, the longest period any boat hire company has been on the Gold Coast. It was originally two companies, one named POPEYE’S BOAT HIRE and the other CAPTAIN BARB E BOAT HIRE, which was appropriate in the good old days when Crocodile Dundee visited the Gold Coast. Today, however, with the tremendous growth and numerous entertainment attractions on the Gold Coast, the modern tourist rightfully expects a better quality boat and service excellence.

The names were changed to MIRAGE BOAT HIRE to reflect the upmarket quality of the boats and service we provide to our clients. No expense was spared to provide you with the LARGEST and BEST PRESENTED fleet to choose from. Our boats are all maintained to the highest mechanical and safety standards and offer you the best quality possible, to ensure that you have a wonderful day cruising the beautiful Nerang River and Broadwater.

Our boats are all fully upholstered, including the half cabin area for your comfort, as well as full covers to protect you from the elements. Our large fleet of 22 boats caters for every need, from the various size half cabins from 15’ to 20’, Sweetwater Party Pontoons, BBQ Pontoons onto the large 33’ BBQ Party Pontoon, Four Winns Bowrider and a 45 person party cruiser. With our boats, you are also free to explore the largest area of waterways. Along the Nerang River, through Surfers Paradise and the beautiful homes on Millionaires Mile, to the beautiful Broadwater with the seclusion of Wavebreak Island.

Many people choose the freedom of self driving our boats, instead of taking an organized, one or two hour canal cruise. For a family or group, not only is it more private, interesting and fun, but the costs are comparable as well. Some people prefer a private or more exclusive canal cruise for which we can arrange to suit your requirements. Click here for cruises and tours.
