Safety and Equipment
Is the boat safe and in good condition?

Yes, the vessel is currently in survey with the NSW Roads and Maritime, which requires comprehensive safety equipment standards and regular safety checks. A safety briefing is given to the charter passengers before embarkation and safety gear will be provided if required. All vessels in our fleet are selected for safety, comfort, quality and cleanliness. We are proud to keep them this way.

What is the maximum capacity of the boat?
38 passengers is the maximum surveyed number allowed on this vessel.
Please note - an infant, regardless of age is considered a passenger.

Is the boat suitable for children?
Yes, the vessel has safety rails all the way around the boat and children's lifejackets are available on request. Children must be under adult supervision at all times.

Is there sun and wind protection on the boat?
Calypso’s spacious indoor area provides ample shade from the sun and wind.

What toilet facilities are on board?
Calypso is equipped with 2 modern, spacious marine toilets with easy access for charter.

Catered Food and Beverage Options
Can we organize a meal on board?

Yes, we can recommend some excellent local caterers for you to design and deliver the perfect menu to suit your budget and taste.

BYO Catering
Are we allowed to bring our own food and drinks?

Yes, we suggest that you bring boat friendly food that requires minimum preparation i.e. platter-style cold foods.

Is there a BBQ on board?
The vessel is equipped with an outdoor gas BBQ including cooking utensils. Please note that adverse weather conditions may make barbecuing difficult.

Do I have to wash up the dishes?
No, sit back and relax and the crew will do that for you.

Where can we put our food and drinks?
The boat has a freezer and fridge unit in the galley as well as two large ice coolers in the cockpit. You are permitted to bring along additional coolers if required. Older style metal eskies are not allowed as they damage the boat.

Do we need to bring ice for the cooler / esky?
Yes

On Tour
Can we have music on board?

Yes, the vessel is equipped with a sound system which is iPod and mp3 compatible. Please ensure your mp3 player is fully charged. Calypso is equipped with both indoor and outdoor speakers

Where can we go during our charter?
Your skipper can take you most places within Sydney Harbour, providing it is within the surveyed boundaries. Should your guests wish to go to a specific location within Sydney Harbour please let us know at time of briefing.

Can we extend our charter time during the charter?
Yes, although this is subject to availability and up to the skippers discretion. Please note payment will charged to the authorised bond post charter.

Booking and Payment
How do I secure my booking?

A minimum 50% deposit is required to confirm booking, with the balance payable 14 days prior to commencement of the charter. Upon payment of your deposit, a Skippered Charter Contract will be faxed or emailed to you, confirming details relevant to your charter, which must be signed and returned. Payment can be made by MasterCard, Visa, EFTPOS, Electronic Funds Transfer or Cash. Diners Card, Bankcard and Cheques are not accepted.

Is there any paperwork to complete before we go on our Charter?                 
Yes, we require your signed contract and authorised bond form prior to your charter.

Cancellation
If I cancel the charter, can I get a refund?

See General Booking Information button below for details.

Wet Weather
What happens in the event of rain?

Calypso provides excellent protection from the elements because of its covered coach house area and clear roll down awnings that can be rolled out to cover the transom if necessary.
We cannot offer a 'Blue Sky Guarantee'. If boating conditions are unsafe, as determined by the management of Sydney Harbour Escapes, we will offer a six month voucher where you can reschedule your charter based on availability.

Preparations and Arrival
What do you advise we bring along for our charter?

As conditions can vary on the water, it is suggested that you bring along a hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, swimmers, and seasonal jumper or jacket. Please wear white-soled shoes or non-marking boating shoes. Strictly no black soled shoes or stiletto-heeled shoes, as this will damage the decking.

Does our party need to get there before the set time of the charter?
All your party should be at the designated pick up point at least 15 minutes prior to your charter time to allow loading of passengers and gear and to enable enough time for the skipper's safety briefing.
Please note - your charter will start and finish at the times on your contract.

Can one of our guests be picked up late and dropped off early from another wharf?
Multiple pick up and drop off points are not recommended as this will shorten your charter time significantly. We suggest that guests wishing to join the charter late or leave early should arrange alternative transportation via water taxi at their own cost. Please ask one of the Sydney Harbour Escapes team members for a Water Taxi contact.


Dear Sydney Harbour Escapes, We had my husbands 40th yesterday 14 Jan. We wanted to thank you so much for making it such a great day. We had an absolute ball as did all of our friends! Cathy, Susie and Graham were the best crew. They went above and beyond to serve us and look after us! It was one of the best experiences in our lives for almost all of us! We are already planning the next one!! Again thanks, Noni & Anthony Robertson

The day went really well, all the staffs were the best! And the boat was awesome.. Next year I think I will definitely get the same boat. Loved it! We got really lucky with the weather too thank god. Cheers! Kind Regards, Daniel Jones

Thank you … yes, we had a great day. The crew was fantastic and the boat first class. Catering was also very good (hard to get excited about sandwiches … but as far as sandwiches go they were great). Catering was also good in terms of quantity (no one went hungry). Please pass on my thanks to the captain and crew… They both certainly helped make the day a very pleasant and enjoyable experience for everyone. Best Regards ... Craig

Hello Just a quick note to say thanks for your assistance on the hire. We were very fortunate with the weather and had a wonderful day. Hans and his crew were awesome and made everyone feel very welcome and created a very comfortable environment. I would highly recommend in the future. Many thanks, Warwick Jones

Yes it all was very nice everybody enjoyed the day even with the thunderstorm and the staff we great and the shooting was very competitive, overall it was a special day for all thanks very much. Regards, Peter Smith

Your boat was sensational, as were your crew. We catered ourselves. We had a great day out. Thank you. Andrew G. McDonald

I would just like to say everything was perfect. The food was amazing, the crew were fantastic making sure everyone had a great night. The boat itself was unbelievable, the entire night met and surpassed all expectations. Angela Flannery

Just wanted to pass on some feedback from the 2 amazing days we had on Calypso with a DREAM crew. We had a wild wild fun time on Boxing Day with a heaving boat of 20 year olds who drank everything on board. Yesterday we had a relaxed day in the sun tucked into Rose Bay out of the wind. Please pass on my highest praise and thanks to Graeme, Susie and Cathy for the professionalism experience and general sense of FUN! All were so helpful in the preparation and serving of the food and drinks and made the day for me as I didn’t have to worry about preparation. Thanks again, Gabrielle

We had the best Xmas party ever. Even the Sydney weather was kind! The boat, food but especially the crew were fantastic. Please pass on our sincere thanks firstly to you for making the booking a pleasure and to Alan, Kath and Susie who looked after us so well. We would be happy to do it again sometime. Kind regards, Stuart Hall

Great day, due to the wonderful team on board! Regards, Marilee

To the entire team at Sydney Harbour Escapes, Just a quick note regarding our charter cruise on-board the amazing boat on Saturday. Once again we experienced the second to none professionalism and service from the entire team at Sydney harbour escapes, and the crew on board our charter.

The entire party was blown away once again by the fantastic and friendly service of Graham, Sue and Tim. The day was a total success and it was without doubt due to the team at Sydney Harbour Escapes. Already I have had two members from my group asking for the details of the boat and Syd Harbour Escape so they can book their next event. Kind Regards, Jason Quarisa
