We are proud to keep them this way.

What is the maximum capacity of the boat?
Bella Vista is surveyed to hold a maximum of 900 passengers, 1 skipper and crew dependent on your passenger numbers. Please note, an infant, regardless of age is considered a passenger.

Is the boat suitable for children?
Yes, Bella Vista is suitable for children appropriate sized lifejackets lifejackets are available on request. Children must be under adult supervision at all times.

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.

On Tour
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. Please note, the charter will be extended based on the decision of the captain on board and payment will be processed post charter by authorised bond.

Booking and Payment
Can we view the boat before we book our charter?
Yes, the vessel is located in Blackwattle and viewings are possible most days. We recommend that you view the vessel so that you know exactly what the boat has to offer and whether it is suitable for your charter. Please call in advance to check availability and arrange a viewing.

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, 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 commencing.

Cancellation
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.


We truly had the most amazing, memorable time on the boat. The crew were fantastic. Everything went perfectly and we couldn’t have asked for anything more. We really appreciated all your help organising it also. We also cannot thank the crew enough as they were perfect. Special mention to Cathy as we have been on the boat twice before with her and she is so helpful and kind and everyone kept on coming up to myself and Stephen saying how great she was. Thanks again for all your help. Steve and Stephen

I would just like you to pass on a big thank you to the guy and gals who hosted our group last Friday they were outstanding. Their service and interaction was wonderful and I had rave reviews from all people aboard. We had a great time and will be using your company again. Thanks again. Regards Mark PS food was great as well

It was a wonderful day, and definitely a highlight for our guests, so thank you so much! Everything went very smoothly, and the skipper and his second in command (I don’t know the correct title and I forget her name!) were fantastic! Many thanks for your help, and we’ll certainly keep you in mind for our next outing! Warmest regards, Annaliesse.

The cruise was fantastic. Well worth it. We all loved it, so much so that we are planning to do it again in the near future. I would have no hesitation in recommending your business to others who are thinking of doing something different for a special occasion. The food was great and the crew, Graham and Vanessa were the perfect hosts. Please pass on to them our appreciation for their efforts and for putting up with us. Thank you all for an experience, that I am sure all of us will remember for a long time. Kind regards, Michael Zizic

I am so impressed with your staff and crew. We had one of the wettest April days in 10 years and your team changed boats for me at the last minute to ensure we had enough shelter for the guests. It was greatly appreciated! My partner - who's 40th it was had an absolute ball despite the weather as the boys on board made the trip fun and we so helpful!! I cannot recommend your company highly enough. Please pass my thanks on to the team for a truly memorable day. Warm regards, Jo

We had a wonderful time! Thank you so much. Food was great, crew was lovely....very accommodating! We were very pleased with the outcome. Cheers, Sal

Hi Sydney Harbour Escapes Team, Just wanted to write to say thank you very much for the suggestion to use the above vessel for our cruise last week on Friday. The entire team & I had a fantastic afternoon & everyone has continued to talk about how great everything was all this week. I would like to make special mention of the crew on board the boat & how fantastic their service was. Under normal circumstances I am normally the one serving the food & drinks, but this time I did not have to lift one finger. Everything was done for us. So thank you to all involved. I will definitely recommend your services to any friends or colleagues who are looking to do something a little more special & hope we can do something like this for our Christmas party at the end of the year. Cheers, Gillian Adams

To the Sydney Harbour Escapes Team, Thank you for helping us organise yet another wonderful outing on Sydney Harbour. Everyone on our cruise commented on how helpful and attentive the crew were. We all had a fantastic time and would love to do it again very soon. Thanks again. Hieu Nguyen

Hi, I’d just like to say that myself and my guests had a BRILLIANT time on Sunday’s cruise. It was the best birthday I’ve ever had and the boat and service was a big part of it.
