Wet Weather
What happens in the event of rain?
The Lightwave Catamaran provides excellent protection from the elements because of it's 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. 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.


I just want to say a big thank you for all that you and your staff have done in making my 30th birthday celebrations a perfect day, this is the second time I have hired from your company and you always made our day amazing. All the crew have been so accommodating, courteous and polite. Service was superb and the boat had more than enough room for my 35 guests. My guests have all praises and compliments for you and the crew. I am extremely pleased with my choice in engaging your company for my birthday, I will certainly consider your service again and I know for sure you will be receiving a call from 2 of my guests for their function. Thank you very much. Mark Sourintha

Hi all, I would like to say a very big thankyou to the staff and crew that were on the Lightwave charter. It was the most fantastic and memorable day and this was largely due to the most professional, friendly and helpful staff on board and of course the immaculate condition of the charter boat. I have spoken to many guests who attended the party and the recurring comments have been the fantastic venue and most of all the crew! I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Sydney Harbour Escapes to anyone for any occasion. You will be the first business that comes to my mind for my next big occasion. Again, a very big thankyou for making my 30th one to remember. Ashley Peacock

Just wanted to thank you and your team for all of your help and for a wonderful afternoon out on the harbour. The weather was great and Dreamtime Girl truly a magnificent vessel! The crew were wonderful, friendly and efficient and the food was excellent too. It was a great way to - celebrate my 50th birthday. My family and friends really enjoyed the experience and will hopefully talk about it for a long time to come...there was even some impromptu swimming as the weather was so good and the temptation too much! The only problem was that it was over too soon! Kindest regards, Cate xx

I just wanted to share with you what an amazing time we had on Dreamtime Girl yesterday! I really wanted to make mention to you how friendly, helpful and downright AMAZING the crew was. They really made the day flow so smoothly and it was greatly appreciated. I look forward to doing another boat trip with you soon! Jordan Berger

We had a wonderful cruise on Saturday. Both Chris' were great. In fact next time we go on Dreamtime Girl again, we wouldn't mind having Chris as our Captain again. Thanks for organising it for us. Regards, Teresa

We had such an amazing time on Saturday -- the crew were awesome, as always! Thank you for all of your help (and for turning on the sunshine) -- we'll be back again for sure. Cheers. Sheridan Kerr

You guys were great!!! From the boat, to the crew and your help organising everything at the last minute- just fantastic. I will definitely be booking with you guys again. Sydney Harbour Escapes are fantastic! The boats are beautiful and the staff are so friendly and extremely helpful. Our corporate function was a hit- I will definitely be booking my next harbour cruise with them. Let me know if you need anything else! Thanks again, Elizabeth

Thanks for the email. I’ve been meaning to call Dom all week. The boat was fantastic! Even with the pouring rain we all managed to fit under cover and had a great time. I think that’s the only boat we will be going out on from now onwards. Chris and Kathy were great also- very helpful and tolerant of my silly intoxicated friends. Shame we didn’t get sunny weather, but hopefully next time! Thanks again for helping to reschedule! Sophie Perkes

Oh my, I have only fantastic things to say about the boat and the staff aboard the dream time girl catamaran. Cath was the most hospitable and lovely person and Allan, the Captain, was sooooo entertaining and made our day wonderful. Once we were on the boat I got to relax and enjoy the day because the staff looked after everything. The boat was beautiful and in immaculate condition. I will definitely recommend Sydney Harbour escapes to all my friends. Every one commented on how great the day was and how impressed they were with the staff. Thank you so much for all your help you too made this experience very enjoyable. If you could keep me updated with any special offers because i would definitely want to book again in the future. Thanks and regards, Cass

We had a fabulous day and it was so lovely to have Cathy on board looking after us for the 4th year in a row, she is fantastic. It was great to have Alan as our Captain as he took us I think the 1st year. Weather turned out great so we all got to have a swim. It’s a pleasure dealing with your company and you have been fantastic as well in keeping posted on what I need to do. Once again thanks for all your help. Anne-Maree

Everything went perfect apart from the weather. Crew were great. everyone had fun. no complaints at all. Will definitely book again and tell my friends. Thank you, Babak

it was great, totally exceeded expectations and I loved how our hostess made sure everyone had a champagne in their hands at all times - my friends and family now refer to her as "the booze fairy"! Bec
