I used Sydney Harbour Escapes while on holiday in Sydney for our New Years Eve celebration. What a great experience! The staff was helpful in planning and understanding my needs. They worked seamlessly to help me find a boat that met my needs. The boat and crew were prepped and knew how to show us a great time. They were... More

The skipper & crew were super helpful and friendly, making everything go smoothly throughout the day. Our group has a blast all throughout the day and if anything it went by so quickly! Look forward to booking another day out on the harbour hopefully in the near future.

It was less than a month away before I started looking at booking a catamaran for my 25th birthday. The website showed what boat options there were and summarised all the features and costs which made it easy for comparative purposes. I had my eyes set on the Hestia and not knowing that there would be an annual yacht party... More

We chartered 'Amour de la Mer' one of the catamarans on offer from Sydney Harbour Escapes to celebrate my husband's 40th birthday. It was 25 of us. We were looked after so well by Brien and Cath who were both lovely and attentive. They took us to some lovely bays where we were able to swim in beautiful clear waters.... More

We went on The Rockfish 2 organised by Sydney Harbour Escapes on the weekend with a group of 19 girls for a Hens Day. The Crew were fantastic, and Ashley was really helpful answering all my questions promptly leading up to the day. Thanks so much, will definitely be going through Sydney Harbour Escapes for our next Charter. Amazing fun,... More

Our 4 hour skippered cruise on Red Undies for a birthday celebration with 18 friends was simply fantastic. The crew cooked our BBQ brilliantly, and took care of absolutely everything for us while on-board. Being able to bring along your own food and booze helps to keep the costs of a great day out like this to a minimum. The... More

We hired a catamaran for 4 hours out in Sydney Harbour for our work Christmas party. We had a brilliant day (just wished we'd brought our bathers so we could have had a swim). The crew were EXCELLENT. Friendly but not over bearing. We had a BBQ on board and lots of fun and laughter. I now know how the... More

I organised a summer sailing trip for a group of friends in Jan 2016 and we had such a fantastic time, everyone asked me to make it an annual event! Year # 2 didn't disappoint. Top notch crew, beautiful catamaran, wonderful service... all round a fantastic day relaxing with friends on Sydney harbour. I couldn't recommend Sydney Harbour Escapes enough!
