“Great afternoon on the Harbour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2011

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.

Hi,
Just reading your review on Trip Advisor for the self drive boat hire on the Arvor 20. Just like to let you know that the boats have been refurbished and we would love to assist you if you wish to go out in the future.

“We hired a self drive boat out for the...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2010

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 to have a day away from the tourist traps to explore Sydney harbour waterways on our
own. Boat was equipped with shade, little cabin and beds, even a toilet. You can hire fishing gear as well but we will save that up for next time.
So if youre in Sydney i recommend this great day out any time of year.
