There are a number of events for which we provide boats with skippers. These tend to be the events where the harbour gets crazy busy and we do not normally hire our boats out for self-drive, preferring to provide a skipper so you can relax, have a drink and enjoy the evening.
You can book a boat that can take either 6 Adults plus a Skipper or can take 5 Adults plus a Skipper.
NSW Maritime do allow us to ‘trade’ one adult for two smaller kids (under 12 years old). If that gets confusing just email or call us (see our Contact Page)
The Events we currently provide Boat plus Skipper are :
New Year’s Eve Fireworks
The family fireworks are at 9pm and the main show is at midnight. Between the shows are the Harbour of Light Parade and the winner of the Design You Own Fireworks show. You can do one, any or all of them and we will pick you up at an agreed spot, load the boat, take you out to see the fireworks from somewhere near Taronga Zoo or Bradley’s Head and then drop you back to an agreed spot. The harbour plan for the last NYE Fireworks can be seen.
Australia Day Fireworks
While not as grand as the NYE fireworks these are still fun and a great excuse to see fireworks from the water up close and personal. The fireworks are at 9PM and we will pick you up at an agreed spot, load the boat, take you out to see the fireworks from somewhere between Clarke Island, Shark Island and Bradley’s Head and then drop you back to an agreed spot.
Sydney Vivid Festival
The lights around Circular Quay, the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge are amazing and worth a look from the water. We will pick you up from an agreed spot, cruise around the lights and then drop you back on land. The lights start at 6PM and you only need a couple of hours to take a look.
Sydney to Hobart Race Start
On 26 December the big race starts. Being there at the start and as they round the marks to leave the heads is breathtaking. Whether you have a loved one aboard or just want to see the start of the tussle between the super-maxis, this is a great day on the water.
