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

I hired Dreamtime Girl (a 50 foot catermaran) on Saturday 11th Jan for my birthday, had 40 ppl on board and did the catering myself. It was one of the most magic days of my life, had the best time and I simply can't fault the wonderful crew - they cooked up tray after tray of lamb cutlets & kebabs... More

We had a great time on sydney harbour after hiring a boat from Sydney Harbour Escapes. The staff were friendly, and explained the procedures and safety really well. The boat was great, and perfect for the 7 ppl in our party!

This is my second time visiting Sydney Harbour Escapes in Rose Bay. This time we hired a Seawind catamaran for a get together with relatives to celebrate coming back to Sydney from the UK. Much better than a restaurant, we could BYO both food and drinks ( cant do that in uk) and the skipper took us around to see... More

Awesome. We chartered a boat from 5pm -9pm in January. 10 family members, from 7 months to 80 years old were treated to an amazing experience. The crew were friendly, knowledgable and professional, oh and their bbq skills were fab too. We were collected from the quay and sailed around the bays in the harbour, admiring the scenery, the properties... More

We have just returned from an evening on Sydney Harbour with Sydney Harbour Escapes. The party of 15 were collected from the jetty near home and when we boarded, the vessel was immaculate and our host was a very genial one! We sailed through heavy Australia Day sea traffic with ease, along the way seeing huge Ocean Liners leaving the... More

I wanted to rent a boat with my girlfriend for my last day in Australia and I thought it would be a nice romantic day. On the website it said great for site seeing...this is true only if you anchor bc it is so hard to see in the cockpit driving the boat. The boat goes 8 knots at best... More

Rented a self-drive boat from Sydney Harbour Escapes earlier this month for our first afternoon in Sydney, and spent a wonderful day on the Harbour. What a great introduction to the city's iconic landmarks. SHE delivered the boat and brief training just as promised. Prompt to reply to emails, and do a good job of explaining their policies. Recommended.

We hired a self drive boat out for the day. The hire boats are really easy to drive. You don't need a boat licence as they only go 8knots but that is all you need as you want to cruise Sydney harbour anyway. We had a comprehensive briefing first which was really easy to understand. Once underway, we were happy... More
