Length of charter
Minimum charter length is 4 hours. Extra time can be organised at an additional cost per hour.
Game fishing time is 8 hours.
Arrival at the wharf
We recommend that your party arrives at the wharf 30 minutes prior to your charter. The boats need to book the wharves and have a limited time to pick up and drop off your guests.
Preferred pick up and drop off locations
There are specific locations available for pick up and drop off so please enquire as to a suitable location for your party.
Multiple pick up and drop offs
We do not recommend multiple pick up and drop offs as this can waste a considerable amount of your charter time. Instead, we are happy to supply you with a water taxi contact number that can deliver or pick up guests at their convenience.
We always suggest that you bring boat friendly food that requires the minimum preparation i.e. platter-style cold foods and any beverages that you may require for your charter.
What to bring
As with any outdoor venue, we recommend that your guests dress for the season (i.e. sunscreen and a hat in summer, a warm jacket in winter).
Bait is supplied.
Booking and Payment
We require a 50% deposit to lock the date for you. Once we have received the deposit payment, we will generate a contract for you with all your details. 2 weeks prior to the charter date we require the balance of the payment. 5 working days prior to the charter date, we require final numbers and the payment for the catering.
See General Booking Information below
Boat inspections are welcome by appointment.
Yes, it was a great experience, we were impressed of how diligent Gary and his assistant were in fulfilling all our needs. So we all had a great time and my wife loved it (which was the main aim).
Thank you very much for your help. Didier Delemme
I was unable to attend the event at the last minute but the general consensus from my colleagues and our guests was that they had a terrific time. The feedback regarding the crew and the boat has been very positive. Please thank those involved for a fantastic time and we will definitely be looking to charter with you guys again.
We were very happy with the day and I don't have one negative comment.
Gary and the captain were excellent and we were very pleased.
Thanks and regards, Cameron
Thank you for your arrangement. We had a great time on Yackatoon. The pity is the weather was not ideal when we went to fishing.
The big game deep sea experience we had on Saturday was absolutely fantastic. My friend and I had an unforgettable, excellent day.
The crew were accommodating, friendly, resourceful and overall fantastic and ensured that the day was sublime from wharf to shore.
As a result we would fully recommend this experience to anyone who asks.
Once again I would like to congratulate Sydney Harbour Escapes for making the event possible That was one fortieth birthday that will become the stuff of legend
