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 or are not confident enough to skipper yourself and mates, let us help you get experience. Includes everything from launching, handling, towing, tiller and forward steering and understanding the boating rules so that when you sit for your licence or 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.
