Who We Are


Wade Couzens Director

Embark on the Ultimate Aquatic Adventure

Founded by Wade, a Territorian, born and raised in this remarkable region. In 2021, he decided to share his passion for fishing and exploring the vast outdoors of the NT by establishing Buffalo Boat Hire. Soon after, due to high demand, BBH expanded their services to cater to clients’ needs, rebranding as Buffalo Boat Hire and Tours.

The goal was clear: to provide others with the opportunity to embark on adventures and discover the beauty of the NT’s pristine waterways and make boat accessibility from the northern suburbs more convenient.

Having strong connections to the Agalda people of Araru, West Arnhem Land, Cobourg, it was a natural decision to incorporate his heritage into the business. With the blessings and permission of his respected elders, BBHT chose to name their boats after marine animals in the Iwaidja language. This not only pays homage to our ancestral ties to the sea but also allows BBHT to proudly celebrate their cultural heritage.

Wade and his partner Jamie, along with their four children, are always ready for an adventure. Whether it’s fishing, spearing, crabbing, or simply exploring
the great outdoors, they seize every spare moment to immerse themselves in the natural wonders of the Territory. With Wade’s extensive local knowledge, every outing promises a unique and unforgettable experience.
