We were a family and friends group of 16 on "Sunwind". Captain Tim picked us up at Lavender Bay and we motored in our well fitted out and spotlessly clean catamaran over to the Opera House, Lady Macquarie's Chair, Woolloomooloo, and then across to Athol Bay near Taronga Zoo and found a good anchorage near the beach. Here there was... More

Anthony and his partner Greer hosted 14 of us for NYE on Sydney Harbour. GORGEOUS yacht, PERFECT hosts, FABULOUS catering. The whole experience was truly a "once in a lifetime" - although we'll be back again for sure. Ashley and the team at Sydney Harbour Escapes were fantastic to deal with too. Do yourself a favour and treat yourself to... More

We took the NYE 2016. The staff was very good and friendly, vessel very comfortable for such a big event in Sydney. However, the DJ should have had a better song play list for the occasion. The food was just ok. I would suggest not serving dinner and stick to the finger food instead.

When I got in touch with Sydney Harbour Escapes they straight away provided me with many suitable options for our Christmas party harbour cruise. Their recommendations helped on deciding for a boat that was just perfect for us. The food on board was delicious (also vegan and vegetarian options) and the staff was very polite and friendly.

We booked a 4 hour trip on a Wednesday afternoon, took our own food and drinks and had on board the catamaran 7 adults and 4 kids aged 3-11. And our fantastic skipper, Brian of course. There was plenty of room for all and following a slow cruise up to Blackwattle Bay, we lunched on the return to Mosman vicinity,... More

We hired a beautiful boat with capacity for 33 people for a sunset cruise and swim in the harbour. The boat was in excellent condition with wonderful facilities - very spacious and easily held 33 people. Dinner was simple but very good. Fully stocked bar too. The staff were excellent and extremely helpful and courteous. We would definitely recommend this... More
