Location - Kalbarri & Now DAMPIER, WA!


Murchison Boat Hire has been operating in Kalbarri for the past 18 years, supplying quality boats for hire to the general public, fishermen, whale watchers and commercial work. We are a family owned fishing boat hire business located in beautiful Kalbarri, where some of the best fishing for bottom and game fish is available along Western Australia's coral coast. With the unexpected events of COVID-19 in 2020, we have moved a boat or 2 up to Dampier for hire. We will endeavour to move the boats between Kalbarri and Dampier depending on the current weather/fishing seasons. We are currently dropping down to Coral Bay, Carnarvon or Shark Bay turnoffs if long enough hires depending on availability. Call to discuss your requirements.

Fish of a lifetime!

Had an amazing trip ...way beyond expectations .The whales put on quite a show. I personally caught 8 different species and a fish of a lifetime with a Dhu fish at 10.2 kilo.
