We booked a catamaran for a hens party and it was absolutely fabulous - we had Brian who was most accommodating and who took us to a beautiful secluded beach to swim. Organising was a breeze with prompt emails and knowledgeable staff. Divided amongst the 15 of us the boat was quite reasonable for four hours out on the beautiful... More

Thank you so much Sydney Harbour Escapes for making our boat trip so memorable! My family and I had one of the best experiences in Sydney. We would definitely recommend doing an evening boat trip! We were able to see the amazing Sydney harbour at both day and night and enjoyed a BBQ and drinks. We were able to choose... More

A group of friends and friends of friends spent Valentine's Day on Sydney Harbour aboard the motor yacht 'Day by Day'. I cannot recommend more highly the specific crew and boat, as well as the great service from the Sydney Harbour Escapes folks who made everything a breeze. The boat was awesome - great for a group of our size... More

Our charter was on board "Red Undies" through Sydney Harbour Escapes. The great experience started with Rithika in sales, who was so helpful and professional. We had about 14 for our staff xmas party which was so enjoyable. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting an experience out of the ordinary. Perhaps next time the inclusion of a few points of...

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! Professional in every aspect, with a great variety of food that seemed endless, great entertainment, the staff were professional, friendly and attentive. Yes, it may seem pricey for... More

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
