Poppa’s Boat Hire

St helens
Poppa's Boat Hire is a small family business which is owned and operated by father and son Graeme and Brayden Popowski. Both have a passion for fishing and spend almost every spare minute getting to the sunny East Coast, which is regarded as the fishing capital of Tasmania. They thought why not give people the same opportunity to get out there and catch some of the many species of fish and experience what the East Coast of Tasmania has to offer. ​At Poppa's Boat Hire we offer different services based on our customer's needs, whether it be catching some of the many species of fish in George's Bay, exploring the famous Scamander River looking for those beautiful hard fighting Bream, or just a morning or afternoon adventure around the waters of the East Coast of Tasmania.
