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?

Please ask one of the Sydney Harbour Escapes team members for a Water Taxi contact.
