Boat Hire

Want to hit the water but don’t have a boat? Dogtooth Marine provides you with the option to self-drive. All you need is a current Boat Licence and you are ready to go.

An awesome and cost-effective solution for those of you who love the water, love to fish, or just simply want the means to have a cruise in our picturesque Australian waterways!!

Available from Port Adelaide Wharf or launched locally from North Haven, Snowdens Beach and St Kilda.

Boat Tuition

If you’re thinking of getting your boat licence, or even if you have one, but have never driven a boat, let us help you get experience. Includes everything from launching, handling, towing, tiller and forward steering.  Understand the  rules so that when you sit for your licence,  hire or purchase a boat, you are ready to go and have some boating skills and confidence in your ability to handle a boat on the water. Hire a boat for an hour and have one of our team show you the ins and outs, so you will be a lot safer at sea.

Our boats allow us to venture right through the Port River system and the Dolphin Sanctuary including areas around Garden Island and St Kilda or enjoy a Sunset Cruise tour.
