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 a number of 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.
The boat is equipped with a good quality sound system. Bring This vessel does not have provision for a DJ or live band.
This vessel has a range of menus available which we can e-mail you upon request. It is not licensed so you must bring your own alcohol and soft drinks for your charter.
If you like you can arrange to have your order delivered to the vessel prior to your charter, please arrange this directly with the skipper once your charter is confirmed.
Wait staff are available. POA . Please book in advance of your charter.

Thanks so much, it really couldn't have been a better day. Everything was so relaxed, the crew was really friendly and helpful and everyone had a great time. I appreciate all your help - the booking was so easy and stress free. On the day everything was as it should be. It was a wonderful surprise that the crew cooked our barbecue for us (and perfectly) and had everything that we needed on board. What else can I say? We even went swimming. Couldn't beat it and I'll recommend you guys to anyone who will listen. Thanks again! Anna
We all had a great time thank you. Really enjoyed ourselves and a relaxing time.
The boat was amazing, the staff were fantastic and friendly and the food was great.
Thanks for a great day out, we look forward to our next experience.
Many thanks, Karina

Now back in the UK- just wanted to drop you a line to thank you so much for a fantastic evening on Pilgrim on Wednesday. We all had a brilliant time. Sophie, London – UK
We wanted to email and thank you for a wonderful sail on Wednesday with Sophie and Bill and all the kids. We had a great time. Would definitely like to do it again; the boys loved it. We have some more visitors arriving soon so will be in touch. Simon, Rose Bay
We had a fantastic time. Paul and Clare were both absolutely fantastic. They are fun and very professional. We all loved every minute of the charter and cannot think of anything that would have made the charter any better. Paul took time to teach a couple of us a few things about sailing. Everything about our day on Pilgrim was perfect. John, Sydney
