Pelican Boat Hire

Pelican Boat Hire has been helping generations of Noosa’s visitors get out and enjoy the beautiful Noosa River for more than 6 decades. The crew will help you get on-board a large range of boats, kayaks, stand-up paddle boards and tours.

You don’t need a boat licence to get out and have fun on the water on Pelican Boat Hire’s boats. Whether you’re cooking sausages on a luxury barbecue pontoon, wetting a line with the family, getting a workout while exploring the river on-board a stand-up paddleboard or double kayak, or looking for an adrenaline-pumping ride on a jet ski, Pelican Boat Hire has got the vessel for you.

They also have wheelchair accessible boats with enclosed toilets. And dogs are welcome!

After a few hours of fun on the water, you can drop into their riverside kiosk and pick up an ice-cream or stay for a coffee under an umbrella in the boathouse’s waterfront courtyard.

Look for Pelican Boat Hire along the Noosa River foreshore, next to the Big Pelican. Compare prices and you'll find they are very reasonable.
