Kraken Boat Hire is locally owned and operated by “Skipper” Scotty and Pilita “the Whipper” Wild, helped by their son “Lake-boy” Locky and the unproductive but “Adorable Secretary” Frizzy. The vision is to create a unique and unforgettable memory for every customer “the local Kraken way”, whilst doing something every day to keep our local waterways clean and sustainable for the future.
Scott and Pilita live in Blacksmiths Beach and are passionate about the area because of its down-to-earth and friendly locals and all that the area itself offers ~ from its untainted waters to its many sand islands, parks, venues, riding tracks, and quaint towns that feature all along the pristine Lake Macquarie. Scotty and Pilita want to give you a Kraken local experience and they will not let you down…

Starting small with only a handful of boats and small range of kayaks, paddle boards and push bikes for hire, the Kraken Boat Hire experience is about treating yourself and your loved ones to an unforgettable charted tour or self-drive/operate hire with super recommendations from local knowledge on how to best enjoy boating or biking along our amazing Lake Macquarie waterways.
Why are we so different to the rest? The owners are ‘hands-on’ every day and genuinely care about making your experience enjoyable whilst highlighting the best local spots to make you smile and take in the fresh air, stunning views and company. If you book one of Skipper Scotty’s chartered tours, he makes sure that all passengers (even the furry kind as we permit Dogs onboard) are treated to a Kraken day whilst being immersed in whatever your preferred theme of the day may be. The Skippered Boat Tours are personally crafted to suit the group’s style & preferences, and when onboard the KRAKEN ASSAULT it’s a fully liquor licenced vessel selling alcohol (18+ONLY) responsibly ~ so if you’d like to have a refreshing drink onboard you certainly can!
