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

We had family fly in from overseas just for the day and Sydney Harbour and the crew lead by the skipper Tim did not disappoint!! The vessel was early to meet us at Thames St Wharf in BAlmain...

We had a fabulous New Years Eve 2015 on the "Fusion" boat organized by Sydney Harbour Escapes. There was plenty of food and drinks available through the night. They had a fun DJ with plenty of music and dancing. The boat was in the Light Parade so it was fun to cruise back and forth past the Opera House and... More

We were able to put decorations up, he was very relaxed and did a great job cooking all of our BBQ food. Everyone had a fantastic day -... More

For the second year running, we have used Sydney Harbour Escapes boat 'Dreamtime Girl' for our work Christmas Party. The boat is spacious and well equipped with plenty of room for people to relax and enjoy the view. We were able to moor and swim if we wanted- and as the day was over 30 C, a lot of people... More
