Bribie Island Boat Charters operates from the bridge as far as Mission Point, hiring self drive BBQ Boats and Fishing Boats for cruising up the Passage. The boats provide a great opportunity to take pleasure in one of the most picturesque bodies of water in Queensland.
The BBQ Boats and Fishing Boats are clean, safe and comfortable, with cushioned seats and shade canopies. The BBQ Boats also have a toilet, sink and bench area, with drinking water, and a gas bbq. Life jackets are supplied.
Fishing is great fun – flathead in the creeks, whiting on the sandbars, snapper under the bridge and bream just about everywhere! Bribie Island Boat Charters can hire fishing gear and sells bait and ice for your day out.
Being on the water gives you the best chance of spotting dolphins and sea-turtles. Both bottle-nose and Indo-Pacific humpback dolphins are common in Pumicestone Passage and green sea-turtles are regularly sighted. There is a resident population of dugong in Moreton Bay Marine Park. This placid mammal feeds on the sea-grass beds of Pumicestone Passage.
There are some great swimming spots – pull up in your BBQ Boat or Fishing Boat and the kids can chase the soldier crabs along the sand. Further north are landings, such as Mission Point, that can only be reached by boat.
Being on a BBQ or Fishing Boat also allows you to enjoy the abundant bird-life in and around the Pumicestone Passage.
With the distinctive Glasshouse Mountains in the distance providing a perfect backdrop, journeying up the Pumicestone Passage in a Bribie Island Boat Charters BBQ or Fishing Boat will become a lasting memory from your Bribie holiday.
