Stylish Simplicity

At Sydney by Boat we focus on creating the best possible experience for our passengers, ensuring your time aboard is memorable and well spent. We will work with you to curate the ideal cruising adventure, and then take care of all the preparation and cleanup so you can sit back, relax and enjoy the splendour of our iconic Sydney Harbour in comfort and style. The reasons for choosing a private chartered cruise are really only limited to your imagination.

“Believe me.. there is nothing – absolutely nothing – half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.”

Absolutely loved spending the day cruising around the harbour, especially after lockdown. The skipper and deckhand were lovely and made sure we were well looked after. I couldn't recommend Sydney by Boat enough!!!!

Thank you for an incredible day, we had a wonderful time and loved the boat it really made my 21st very special. The crew were amazing and can't wait to book with you again in the near future.

I wanted a special setting to propose to my partner, and a private cruise around the harbour at sunset, with champagne, cheese and chocolate was certainly the way to do it. We had the boat all to ourselves and the skipper played along brilliantly with my surprise. Thanks for helping me out at such short notice.

Thank you so much for such a great day on Saturday! The girls had so much fun. Sam and Neil were fantastic hosts, we couldn't have asked for a better experience. My other daughter has asked to have the same for her 16th birthday!
