Paddle the day away There are many ways to have fun on the water at Lakes Entrance, including water-skiing, jet skiing and cruising around at your leisure on a boat. But if you are after an experience that’s a little different why not try one of the crafts for hire at Lakes Entrance Paddle Boats. An iconic tourist destination in Lakes Entrance, Lakes Entrance Paddle Boats is located just over the footbridge. A local character, Noel Manning has been providing fun and entertainment to visitors to the area for more than 30 years. People from across the country fondly remember times spent at Lakes Entrance, particularly their time out on the Cunninghame Arm on one of Noel’s vessels. “I’ve travelled around Australia myself and when people ask where I’m from I say Lakes Entrance. Their response is, ‘I’ve been there. We went on the paddle boats and had a ball.’ I’m happy to tell them that they’re mine,” Noel said. Opening at 10am until late, weather permitting, Lakes Entrance Paddle Boats has a variety of vessels to suit everyone. There are also motor operated boats for people with disabilities to use. Noel prides himself on short wait times. “It’s important that customers aren’t waiting around too long before they get out on the water,” he said. The fleet of watercraft available for hire includes paddle boats for two or family size, cruise chair with electric motor and sun- roof, three-wheel aquabikes, canoes, paddle skis, stand up pad- dleboards, catamarans and even bodyboards for use over at the surf beach. Why not take some time on your holiday to learn to sail? The display of colour when the vessels are out on the waters of Cunninghame Arm is one you don’t see very often elsewhere, but the smiles on the faces of those out there having fun are priceless.
