“The perfect experience for any occasion”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 December 2016

Sydney Harbour Escapes are definitely the go to team for your next party boat function. This is our second time with Sydney Harbour Escapes on board the Aquabay and again our experience was high quality. From booking and getting quotes to arranging alcohol and food, it was all very easy. On board the staff are amazing. So friendly and fun, they really make the event and the food and service is outstanding. We will certainly be back a third time.

“Perfect work Christmas party in the harbour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 December 2016

When I got in touch with Sydney Harbour Escapes they straight away provided me with many suitable options for our Christmas party harbour cruise. Their recommendations helped on deciding for a boat that was just perfect for us. The food on board was delicious (also vegan and vegetarian options) and the staff was very polite and friendly. Kaitlin from Sydney Harbour Escapes was always quick to respond to all my questions and was very friendly. I'd highly recommend their services to others.

“A fantastic way to show off our great city to our overseas guests!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 December 2016

We booked a 4 hour trip on a Wednesday afternoon, took our own food and drinks and had on board the catamaran 7 adults and 4 kids aged 3-11. And our fantastic skipper, Brian of course. There was plenty of room for all and following a slow cruise up to Blackwattle Bay, we lunched on the return to Mosman vicinity, where we anchored and swam into the beach adjacent to the zoo for a fantastic "private" moment in a city of nearly 6 Million people.
Brian and SHE were flexible enough to bring forward our booking time a couple of hours, given the storms and southerly change predicted in the late afternoon, making this a fantastic day in a fantastic harbour.
While we are locals, it was a great experience and we would recommend it to anyone. Our visitors absolutely enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere in this beautiful world class environment!
The girls in the office were continually polite, helpful and efficient in their planning and associated communication.
Well done Sydney Harbour Escapes, we hope we can utilise your services again one day!

“Excellent service and the perfect way to see Sydney from a different angle.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2016

We hired a beautiful boat with capacity for 33 people for a sunset cruise and swim in the harbour. The boat was in excellent condition with wonderful facilities - very spacious and easily held 33 people. Dinner was simple but very good. Fully stocked bar too. The staff were excellent and extremely helpful and courteous. We would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a treat or visiting Sydney and wanting to explore.
