Sydney Harbour Escapes offers Sydney Harbour cruises on board a range of over 85 different vessels. They are a reputable family based business, which was established in 2000. Their boat charter cruises can host small to large groups up to 950 guests, for a wide range of private functions.

'Most people are surprised that our boat charters are at a comparable price to a land based venue. Guests love the sensational views and the feeling of being treated as a special guest. There is an easy bond that is created between people who are meeting for the first time as they are sharing an experience together rather than just four walls."

What a professional company! Just hop on one of their immaculate boats and cruise around the Harbour for four hours. Take your your own lunch, have a swim and relax. This is what Sydney is all about. We really appreciated the excellent staff and customer service. Thanks very much.

We love the harbour and always enjoy showing it off to visitors. We recently had a wedding in the family which meant overseas visitors, and decided to organize a cruise on Sydney Harbour. Ashley was fabulous in helping selecting the right vessel and in organising food. Brian, our captain on Seawind was also great. He was right on time in... More

The perfect day on board a perfect yacht with perfect service, what more could one ask for on their wedding day? I can not be more grateful to Glen and the crew. Nothing was too much trouble and the service was first-rate. Think we might have to have our anniversary, birthday, full moon party, any excuse to celebrate on board... More

I hired Calypso for my 40th birthday and the customer service I received from Kaitlin and the team was second to none. They were extremely responsive to all of my questions (always responding within the hour) and were very helpful when I was trying to finalize my booking. The boat was fantastic - well equipped and the crew were friendly... More

We chartered a catamaran with a skipper and the whole experience was wonderful. At one point we anchored near a secluded beach and we all swam ashore. We then sailed to Darling Harbour and on the way back to Rose Bay visited all the bays along the route. The skipper could not have been more friendly and we will definitely... More

We hired a boat from Sydney Harbour Escapes to celebrate a 40th birthday and the whole experience was great. The service from the people who booked the boat and then the service we received on board was excellent. Chris, Cath and Jordan were a superstar crew and it made having fun all that more easier for us and our guests.... More

The cruise exceeded our expectations. The boat (Day By Day) was fantastic, Darren the skipper and Hans the owner were friendly and accomodating, and the communication from Sydney Harbour Escapes was excellent. 10/10.

After reviewing our options for New Years Eve in Sydney we opted for the NYE Harbour Cruise with buffet and Disco. The boat was the older type - but this added to the atmosphere . After boarding we were advised that instead of the buffet it would be staff bringing the food around - which was an excellent way of... More
