Frequently Asked Questions

CAN I DELIVER MY ALCOHOL AND CATERING TO THE BOAT IN ADVANCE OF MY CHARTER?

If we are out on a charter the day prior to yours, you can meet us at whichever wharf our passengers disembark, and we can load up your alcohol at that time. Unfortunately we are not able to meet you at any other time specifically to load alcohol. All catering must be brought with you on the day. We do offer a service whereby you let us know exactly what alcohol and beverages you would like on board, and we will purchase them for you and have them waiting cold on the day. You can reimburse us cash on the day, or a bank transfer in advance. Service fee of $50 applies.

DO I NEED TO BRING ICE?

Yes you do. You can then use our two large outdoor eskys to store your alcohol. We suggest six bags of ice.

WHERE CAN WE BOARD THE BOAT?

You can embark and disembark at most public wharves in Sydney. Please refer to our Sydney Harbour wharf list for further information.

WHEN WILL THE BOAT ARRIVE?

The boat will arrive a few minutes before embarkation time. The boat is allowed a 15 minute window at the wharf before it has to depart, so please make sure your guests arrive on time.

WHERE WILL WE GO?

It’s your choice. Normally the captain will decide on a route on the day, depending on the swell and wind conditions. If there’s somewhere in particular you’d like to see, please let the captain know on the day. Just some of your options are to travel under the Sydney Harbour Bridge, see the Opera House, Shark and Clark Islands, and many of the grand foreshore homes of Rose Bay, Point Piper and Vaucluse. Or cruise around Mosman and the zoo, and over to Manly. Or into Darling Harbour and Balmain, and along the tranquil Lane Cove River, past some of the stately homes of Greenwich.

CAN I BRING MY OWN MUSIC AND DVD’s

Yes you can. We have a large hi-def television, DVD player, CD player and MP3 and Ipod Stations. We can also connect your laptop to the television.

WHAT IF IT’S POURING WITH RAIN?

We have covered outdoor areas so that your charter can still go ahead. Should you wish to postpone, if we agree with you that the weather is not suitable for your charter, you may postpone to another date, at our discretion, at no additional charge. We want you to have a good time as much as you do!

CAN WE SWIM?

Yes you can, although swimming is at the passengers own risk and once you enter the water that signifies to us that you are swimming at your own risk. Please brings your own towels.

CAN WE USE THE BBQ, OVEN OR MICROWAVE?

Yes, you may use any of these, once the boat has stopped. If you are serving hot food, we will stop at a secluded cove for you to prepare and enjoy your lunch or dinner.

WILL SOMEONE HELP ME WITH MY CATERING?

Yes, there is a hostess on board to assist you with your catering and other needs.

ARE THERE TOILETS ON BOARD?

Yes, there are two.

Testimonials

This was our first Sydney Harbour boat hire, and it surpassed all of our expectations. Everything about the day was wonderful - the boat, the food, the weather, and we even did some sailing which was very exciting. We got to see lots of beautiful things on the Harbour and the captain was very informative about the history of some of the islands. Highly recommended!

-Judith and Lesley Thompson, Gold Coast
