Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Booked this as a present for my parents as they were visiting Sydney 4 months ago.

However the trip was cancelled by Sailing Pittwater due to personal circumstances. This is all well and good if the money had been refunded.

Yet despite multiple polite requests from me and promises by the owner that he would refund right away, I still have not seen a single dollar.

Sad.

I booked Sailing Pittwater for a friends birthday for a half day cruise on Pittwater. We had an amazing afternoon sailing with Paul on his beautiful boat. I am pretty sure we will all be back very soon. Highly recommended

Had a fantastic time with another couple. Sailed around Pittwater with Paul at a champagne pace. All went very well and Paul having lived in Pittwater all his life, knows the history and space very well. Relaxing and enjoyable . All the amenities you will need.

We used this as a work Christmas party experience and had a fantastic, relaxing time sailing Pittwater with our work mates.

We enjoyed everything about it - his knowledge, sailing, the weather, the birdlife, the fish and just the general ambience.

Couldn't think of a better way to spend a Sunday morning than Sailing Pittwater. Well worth it and highly recommended as a fantastic thing to do on Pittwater.

Paul is an experienced, knowledgeable seaman. The 4 hours tour with Paul on his spacious yacht was relaxing and memorable.
