I hired a charter yesterday (11/01/2015) on the Dreamtime Girl for my husbands surprise birthday party and it was simply brilliant. We had around 27 people on board. The staff were excellent and everything ran so smoothly, despite the horrendous weather. The staff on the boat allowed me to relax whilst they served all the food and alcohol, they were... More

NYE - I went with a visiting international friend from Switzerland. What better way to showcase Sydney Harbour at its very best. Wow - "Starship" completely met my expectations and then some!

We booked "Coast" through Sydney Harbour Escapes for a New Year Cruise. We had an absolute blast and it gave us memories that will last a lifetime. We booked Coast as it was a smallish boat that catered for families. It turned up pretty much on time and I have to say delivered above our expectations. We thought the boat... More

One of the best things to do in Sydney must be to get out on the harbour to see the iconic Opera House and the Bridge from the water. Along with fabulous views and scenery you get to bring along your friends and/or colleagues to enjoy drinks/food in perfect surroundings. Sydney Harbour Escapes made this happen for us and we...

Firstly I am not an unreasonable person. Being in Events myself I understand that mistakes can be made. But what happened to me cannot be ignored and I would like for this to be read before you book with them. I was dealing with a lovely girl when I first booked my wedding. She left and then I was passed... More

I believe this is an unfair statement to make. Sydney Harbour Escapes took great care of you from day one of your enquiry – In this industry all payments have to be made up front before the vessel can leave the wharf, unless there is a consumption bar to be paid post charter. Sydney Harbour Escapes was in contact with... More

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Sydney Harbour Escapes team for a spectacular evening on the water. It is amazing to experience your own private voyage throughout our fantastic harbour on our own sailing boat, coupled by a fantastic skipper and food that is fit for Kings and Queens. I will ensure to promote this experience to... More

We had a boat arranged that met our requirements, 30 people, suitable to both the old and very young, all was set and planned. On the day there was a problem with the boat and we were "upgraded" to another boat with the promise of an extra half an hour and it being a better boat, half an hour later... More
