“Fun day on the harbour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We were a family and friends group of 16 on "Sunwind". Captain Tim picked us up at Lavender Bay and we motored in our well fitted out and spotlessly clean catamaran over to the Opera House, Lady Macquarie's Chair, Woolloomooloo, and then across to Athol Bay near Taronga Zoo and found a good anchorage near the beach.
Here there was lots of fun in the water and then lots of eating and drinking back on board from our self catering supplies.
After much chat there was a final dip in the water and then motor back to Lavender Bay to disembark after 4 hours which went too quickly.
This was another magical day on Sydney Harbour with perfect weather and a great environment to have fun. Our youngest passenger was 10 and a competent swimmer. This is not suitable for younger children.
My only gripe is ice should be supplied.

“The Count - 57' Yacht”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Anthony and his partner Greer hosted 14 of us for NYE on Sydney Harbour. GORGEOUS yacht, PERFECT hosts, FABULOUS catering. The whole experience was truly a "once in a lifetime" - although we'll be back again for sure. Ashley and the team at Sydney Harbour Escapes were fantastic to deal with too. Do yourself a favour and treat yourself to this!

“Muito bom espaço ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 weeks ago via mobile

We took the NYE 2016. The staff was very good and friendly, vessel very comfortable for such a big event in Sydney. However, the DJ should have had a better song play list for the occasion. The food was just ok. I would suggest not serving dinner and stick to the finger food instead.

“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.
