9 Reasons to Hire a Party Boat

1. Why is a Sydney Harbour Cruise a sure bet for a party?

I will let you into a secret. Once our customers experience a boat charter and then compare to a regular restaurant venue or open plan private venue space, they keep coming back. For the same price you can experience so much more. It is like discovering a hidden oasis in your own backyard.

2. It's Quick to Organise

A charter cruise is quick to organise with our experienced Sydney Harbour boat charter event management team - leaving more quality time for you. We can easily add rental extras such as catering, team events, pick up locations near you and more to tailor to create a memorable charter event!

3. Instantly Relax and Refresh

Let us whisk you and your guests away from the busy Sydney CBD to feel totally relaxed in minutes, surrounded by quiet water and bush land surrounds. Overseas visitors especially will be enamoured by the views, fresh and clean water so close to Sydney city.

4. Your Guests will Bond Easily

Private boat hire has an instant group and team bonding effect. We have seen it time and time again. Sharing a luxury boat charter escape together breaks the ice every time. Perfect for corporate charters or any boat charter where the guests are not regular friends.

5. The Food is Really Yummy!

We specialise in fresh, gourmet catering. Just book a cruise menu and enjoy. Catering is delicious, beautifully presented, delectable, contemporary Australian gourmet cuisine. If any guests have dietary requirements, these can be catered for - just ask.

6. Best Harbour Views Ever

Experience 360 degree knockout views. Sightseeing Sydney on a Sydney Harbour cruise is incomparable to just viewing it from an onshore party venue. The people on the shore will be looking at you! Generally on a boat charter, you will get up close to the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House as the boat cruises around  the harbour. 

7. Professional Free Event Planning

We want you to simply enjoy your boat cruise with your friends or colleagues, and not worry about anything.  At no extra cost to you we look after the finer organising details to make sure that your boat charter is a stress free, walk on, walk off event.

8. Great Photo Opportunities

You will have many opportunities for some fabulous photography. Boats are often used for photo shoots by the professionals. Be seduced with the sensational skies, beautiful boat decor, relaxing blue waters and most of all for the smiles on the faces of everyone on board!

9. Create Lasting Memories

Remember and be remembered - honour your special occasion by creating a private or corporate event that will become a treasured memory. A charter cruise is different. It excites all the senses, creates a rich memory so that your guests will remember your event much longer than if they went to a regular restaurant. Expect to be receiving many thanks for a long time!
