Important information about night time hire

  1. The hirer/driver MUST have a valid RST (Recreational Skippers Ticket / boat licence) and bring it as proof on the night of hire.
  2. The hirer/driver MUST bring a valid form of photographic ID (e.g. a driver’s licence) as well as the RST.
  3. If no one in the group has a valid RST we can try source a guide for the evening for an extra charge (talk to staff for further details). It is $60 for 1.5 hours and $80 for the 2 hour hire. The guide will also use one of the seats so if you have a 10 person pontoon you would now only be able to have 9 plus your guide = 10
  4.  Night time hire slots are between 6:00PM-10:00PM the minimum night hire time is 1.5 hours.
  5. If your hire crosses from day time hire to night time hire, you will be charged accordingly (day rate + night rate = total rate)
  6. There will be a BOND of $200.00 payable at time of hire.
  7. The dates for our night time hire are between December 1st when the lights go up to January 8th when the lights start to come down again.
  8. However, there will be NO night hires on Christmas Night (25th December) and New Year’s Eve (31st December). Only day time hire.
  9. A $200 deposit will be required to secure the booking or paid in full if under $200 and with the remaining balance to be paid one month from the date of the hire.
  10. There are no refunds available for any cancellations to our “night time hires”. We can offer a voucher for a day time hire with a 1 year validity if 14 days notice is given, we may allow rescheduling at our discretion if availability allows and at least 7 days notice is given.
