Why transport a boat to Runaway Bay on the Gold Coast?
Runaway Bay is one of the most popular coastal suburbs on the Golad Coast in Queensland, Australia. It is one of the most popular spots that we get asked to transport boats to because of the mix of waterways, beaches and waterfront residential homes. With a population of just over nine thousand people is the northern area of the Gold Coast with a large number of choices to use your boat or get it put into the water.
The bay provides close access to South Stradbroke Island and the amazing canal system which is why it was originally known as Angler’s Paradise. This area is a fishing boater’s heaven with a feast of either deep sea reef or game fishing options as well as the more relaxed choice of dropping your line in a calm water estuary. That is why so many boats are transported to Runaway Bay on the Gold Coast.
The waterways around here are known for their local snapper, kingfish, pearl perch, tuna, wahoo or mackerel or if you venture out deeper, you might just bag yourself a marlin or sailfish. The Arvor fishing boat is a great choice for a premium fishing boat and we just transported the newest models, learn more here.
There is also a local marina that is packed with luxury yachts where we can pick up or drop off boats as well.
Are there many boat ramps in Runaway Bay?
Runaway Bay is a very unique location and very popular for boat owners because there are more than ten boat ramps in the area. It is a location that provides plenty of choices for boat owners because there are boat ramps that provide access to calm canal waters or the open ocean. It is a short boat trip to get to Stradbroke Island.
