Perfect day and customer service
I hired Calypso for my 40th birthday and the customer service I received from Kaitlin and the team was second to none. They were extremely responsive to all of my questions (always responding within the hour) and were very helpful when I was trying to finalize my booking. The boat was fantastic - well equipped and the crew were friendly and went out of our way to ensure we had a great day. I would highly recommend Sydney Harbour Escapes and will definitely book with them again. My only complaint was that the trip was too short!

Fabulous way to show off Sydney Harbour
We love the harbour and always enjoy showing it off to visitors. We recently had a wedding in the family which meant overseas visitors, and decided to organize a cruise on Sydney Harbour. Ashley was fabulous in helping selecting the right vessel and in organising food. Brian, our captain on Seawind was also great. He was right on time in a beautiful clean vessel, very friendly and extremely nice. He cruised to all the spots we liked and wanted to show our friends and went out of his way to be helpful. I will jump at the change to do it again.

From my initial query with you including booking this charter has been great. You are extremely professional and helpful and a pleasure to deal with.

'The Rockfish 2, Captain Dave and Dan were amazing. The charter was very accommodating & more than I expected. We had a great time at Athol Bay enjoying the scenery with neighbouring charters of SHE. We just loved it!!
Dave was a real champ agreeing to join in on our feast if we would share a dance with him. The man has got some serious moves! I look forward to maintaining this relationship with annual charters ahead (maybe even quarterly).'

Just a quick thank you for the amazing day we had out on the harbour on Good Friday. Whilst having the perfect weather for an afternoon of fishing, drinking and meandering helped, all credit must go to the excellent service we received leading up to and on the day. Thanks especially to Katie for making the safety briefing nice and easy and for enabling us to have such a special afternoon: it was perfect for my mate's last afternoon out with the boys before he gets married, and I'll be recommending it to everyone we know.
You'll see us again: after our rave reviews, our other halves want us to book up ASAP! '
Many thanks again.
Re: Hen's Party Cruise aboard Perfect Day
I was most pleased about the friendliness and helpfulness of everyone from Michellin organizing my bookings and answering any questions pre-cruise, to our lovely crew on the day who made everyone on the boat feel special as they effectively waited on us hand and foot and made the day run smoothly!
Re: Party Cruise aboard Francesca
To Katie and all the team at Sydney Harbour Escapes,
I cannot thank you enough for all your help in making Jane's hens experience so brilliant. Everything was magic on the day, and the professionalism and punctuality of the crew matched yours in the office. They also added to the vibe of the day with their relaxed, helpful manner.
I shopped around a few charter places before being put on to you guys, and thanks heavens I did. The boat you suggested was perfect, the rates were perfect, and the confidence and experience you demonstrated in dealing with my request was very impressive.
I look forward to the next time I have the pleasure of working with Sydney Harbour Escapes. In the meantime I will happily recommend Sydney Harbour Escapes to everyone I get the chance too.
Here's to you,

Re: 25th Birthday Cruise aboard 34' Seawind Catamaran
What a brilliant day! Thanks very much to Michelle, who seemed to know that we were double booked by another company and followed up on my enquiry just in time. Booking etc was all made very simple. A big thank you to our skipper, Dom. Thanks for lending us some spare clothes when we all decided to jump in for a swim, having not brought any swimmers along, as we thought it was going to rain! Our guests were equally impressed at Dom's coffee making skills. My sister and I both agreed that it was the best way to spend our 25th! Family + friends on Sydney harbour. Thanks again, and will definitely give you a call again for our next Sydney harbour adventure!
Re: Skippered Party Cruise
To the owner or Manager,
I would like to express my thanks to your company on my successful Hen's day charter on Sat 17th Feb. I am very impressed with the professionalism and patience of Dom Coleman. He made sure that all my guests were looked after and safe. My pregnant girlfriend was impressed with the care that was taken due to her condition. Dom always kept in contact leading up to the charter and made us feel welcomed.
Once again thank you for a wonderful day!
Re: Romantic Overnight Stay
If I were to single out the main attribute, of the service, that I would use boost my recommendation to any friends, it would include the following: The friendly and helpful nature of the booking staff and the yachting crew. No effort was spared when it came to ensuring that we, their clients were experiencing a personalized and relaxing event. I would strongly recommend this service to any looking for a perfect escape.
Re: Romantic Overnight Stay

Re: Corporate Cruise aboard Cosmos
We want to pass on our thanks for a wonderful day on Friday 16 November out on Cosmos.
Our team of 54 had such a great day, and we have received a lot of positive feedback from our team about what a great day they had probably more so than any other event we have held in the past. The boat far exceeded our expectations in size and comfort, and provided the perfect setting for our celebration with variety of space that was sophisticated yet still relaxed. The staff on board were incredibly helpful and pleasant which only added to the positive experience. The food was lovely also and the range of menu options was very diverse which worked well.
Dealing with Sydney Harbour Escapes, and Susannah in particular made the day a breeze to arrange. Nothing was hassle and all of our needs were met. Many thanks to everyone who made the day such an overwhelming success; we will definitely recommend your boat and company to others here at Optus.

Re: Corporate Entertainment Cruise aboard 34' Seawind Catamaran
Thank you so much for all your help with our sail on Saturday. Our clients and friends are still thanking us for our 'very generous and friendly hospitality' which wouldn't of happened if it wasn't for you both.
From the moment we boarded and set sail, I knew we were all in for a special day. Good company, great food, on a yacht sailing and swimming in Sydney Harbour- it couldn't have been better.
Thanks again from everyone, till next time!

Re: Family Harbour Cruise
Hi, the sailing charter was extremely good and everyone enjoyed themselves immensely. The skipper really made the trip and unlike many skippers I've been sailing with on the harbour (not from your company) he was very relaxed, open to suggestions and offering suggestions of where to go to. Being an experienced sailor myself, it's refreshing to find a skipper who isn't condescending to everyone on board and help; so he really did make the afternoon for us. The boat itself was very well equipped for an afternoon charter which was perfect.
We will definitely recommend your company to friends and family (and have already done so)
