Beachlea Boat Hire

Being in operation for over 50 years of continuous operation and 11 years with the current operator we can offer a safe fishing, boating and beach experience for you, your family and friends that you will always cherish. We aim to leave you fully satisfied with your experience no matter what activities you participate in.

Located on the beach at Indented Head opposite the general store half way between Portarlington and St Leonards and half an hour from Geelong on what is known as one the best beaches in the region, you can participate in fishing, boat hire, glass bottom canoe hire, snorkelling or stand-up paddle boarding (sup’s).

We operate 7 days a week from dawn to dusk and are only closed on Christmas Day. Of course the weather needs to be right but as we have plenty of experience we can advise on better days and times to do various activities so you and your family can feel safe and enjoy the natural beauty of the lovely environment we operate in.

Our location provides easy access to some of Port Phillip’s best fishing spots which offer the chance to catch Snapper, Flathead, Gummy Shark, Squid, Whiting and Garfish to name a few. As some fish are better targeted at particular times of the year we can advise on what to target, when and where. We will also assist you in the best rigs and bait to use and yes we do sell bait. You will need a fishing license which can be purchased online or in the shop across the road. All safety gear is supplied.

We will help you clean and prepare your catch for cooking at home or on the free barbecue’s provided nearby.

A boat license is not needed at this location but we can offer boats suitable for licensed operators and can now also offer another location (licence required) at Swan Bay which is also great fishing but much more sheltered to enable more opportunity in differing weather conditions. See boat information and prices for details.

The beach has crystal clear waters protected by the wreck of the Ozone which is easily accessible from the beach to provide a great adventure for anyone to snorkel or glass bottom canoe around. Our beautiful beach is a great place to try your hand at stand up paddle boarding as well.

Hints & Tips #1 The snapper are well and truly in the bay now, so if you want a great shot at catching one, then now would be a great time. Of course early morning and evening are the best times.
