Brynda is a sturdy vessel equipped with built in stabilizers to make your offshore fishing experience comfortable. Up to 12 persons can enjoy specialised fishing charters either inside the harbour or offshore out from Sydney heads. As you are booking the whole boat for a private charter, your group fishing tour can be tailored to suit your groups needs. Choose either an offshore or inshore fishing charter and experience a fabulous and exciting day out on the water. Offshore charters booked in the winter months have a good chance of seeing up close magnificent Humpback whales migrating up the coast to the warm waters of Queensland.
Twelve persons can fish comfortably aboard Brynda. Our knowledgeable skippers can guide you to the best places to fish and set up rigs to catch fish in season. What ever you catch, you can keep as long as the size is legal!
Brynda can provide a Chinese captain who can speak fluent mandarin for our guests.

We fish 5 to 10 km offshore, over a selection of the productive reefs and fish feeding grounds within easy reach of Sydney. Depending on conditions, 12 people can fish at the same time. In most social groups this works out well, because several people are happy to relax, socialise, take photos and take turns fishing. – If you are all die-hard fishermen, however, we suggest limiting your numbers.

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 embarking 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?
Brynda is surveyed to hold a maximum of 12 passengers, 1 skipper and additional crew dependent on your numbers. Please note, an infant, regardless of age is considered a passenger.
What toilet facilities are on board?
Brynda is equipped with one modern, spacious marine toilet with easy access for charter.
Catered Food Options
Can we organise a meal on board?
Yes, we can recommend some excellent caterers for you where we can design the perfect menu to suit your budget and taste.
Are we allowed to bring our own food and drinks?
Yes, we suggest that you bring boat friendly food that requires minimum preparation e.g. platter-style cold foods or food that can be cooked on our BBQ.
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.
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 emailed to you, confirming details relevant to your charter, which must be signed and returned. Payment can be made by MasterCard, Visa, Amex, 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 authorized bond form prior to your charter commencing.
If I cancel the charter, can I get a refund?
We do not offer refunds should you wish to cancel your charter. 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. Please see our General Booking Information on our website or contact a staff member on 02 9328 4748 for details.
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, our 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.
