About Us

We strive to make cruising affordable and accessible to everyone.

We are a small locally-owned business providing private skippered charters around Sydney Harbour, aboard our vessel AMBER – a 44ft Riviera flybridge cruiser.

Our goal is to make private boat chartering affordable and accessible to everyone, by keeping things simple and focussing on the experience rather than all the bells and whistles.

We focus on the details,
so you don't have to.

Specialising in small group charters, we pull out all the stops to ensure passengers receive a high standard of service throughout the booking, catering and cruising stages. All requirements and requests are taken into consideration to deliver tailormade cruising packages that will leave passengers feeling affordably indulged, leaving us to manage all the details and preparation so that they don’t have to. No stress, no fuss.

Our dedicated crew has a wealth of knowledge about Sydney Harbour and are available to assist throughout the cruise without being intrusive. Our skippers have several decades of combined experience handling boats on Sydney waterways and can recommend the best places to see, swim and photograph depending on the conditions and your requirements.

We have the experience, and the passion.

No Stress, No Fuss

Local Knowledge

Our crew knows and loves Sydney Harbour, and we enjoy devising routes to show off all the famous icons and lesser-known locations.
