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?
100 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?
Commissioner II’s spacious indoor area; covered cockpit and roll out awnings provide ample shade from the sun and wind.

What toilet facilities are on board?
Commissioner II is equipped with 2 modern, spacious marine toilets with easy access.

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. Commissioner II 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.

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?

Commissioner II provides excellent protection from the elements.
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.

We would like to extend our great thankful for all of your fabulous support that has made our day become a very lovely one.

I’ll definitely recommend your service to our family and friend should they have any special occasion. I personally would like to thank you very much for your incredible support (and especially your patience) in accommodating all of my queries, question and expectation. Well done & great job, Michelle!! All the best! Kia

We had another successful day on the harbour. As usual crew are great, and food is fab. Boat is lovely. No complaints at all. Plan to repeat next year! Charlotte

We had a great time, the boat was beautiful and the food was amazing, everyone made comments about how lovely it was so thank you, and please thank our hosts. Yes my husband is turning 40 in 2 years and is going to consider the boat, we will let you know when we are closer to it. I passed out the details to some other people too so you may get contacted. Thank you again for your help! Regards, Alison Herbert

We just wanted to say a quick thank you (to you and the skipper and crew of Commissioner II) for all your help with the boat on our wedding day. The harbour cruise was an absolute hit with our guests -- especially those from overseas -- and the crew and catering were all absolutely perfect for the occasion (helped by an absolutely stunning Sydney day weather wise!). Please pass on our thanks to the team at Sydney Harbour Escapes and Commissioner II -- we're already looking for an excuse to use both again in the future! Mark and Sheila.

Happy new year! I wanted to let you know that the boat trip was amazing. Thank you a lot for your good advice. It was absolutely lovely Cheers, Alexandra

We had a great evening and were very happy with the crew, vessel and catering. All in all it was a very successful event. Thanks for all your help getting all the documentation for us to get approval for the event. Cheers, Rhett

Just wanted to let you know that the event went really well. The vessel, crew and catering were all fantastic and it kicked off our conference and in a really relaxed manner. I do hope that we will be able to use Sydney Harbour Escapes again in the future. Kind regards, Naomi
