Create your own adventure when you hire a private boat to explore Sydney Harbour. Here are 5 reasons why you should explore Sydney Harbour by private boat:
Sightseeing The best vantage points are on boat when it comes to exploring Sydney Harbour. There’s the added flexibility of being able to navigate around the harbour and explore islands such as Cockatoo Island, Fort Denison and Goat Island to name a few. You can also drop off at secluded snorkeling locations and popular places such as Shelley Beach and Manly Beach. Go wherever you want and discover secret beaches where you can have a picnic on.
Fishing Head out on your own fishing adventure along Sydney Harbour and test your skills and patience with a catch or two. Catch bream, flounders, kingfish, mullet and more. Perhaps dinner is sorted by the end of the day!
Partying Cruise along the harbour on a private party yacht with your family or friends and enjoy a BYO or catered event with amazing atmosphere and class. Whatever occasion, a cruise on the harbour is perfect for having a great time!
Boat licences aren’t required for all boats Licences for driving a boat are required depending on the speed of the boat. Any vessel that has a speed of 10 knots (18.5 km/hr) requires a general boat driving licence, and to drive a personal watercraft (PWC) for any speed you need a PWC driving licence. However, there are some self-drive boats that require no licence to operate, so it is easy to hire one and hit the waters. Self-drive pontoons can be easily driven by people who’ve had zero boating experience!
Avoid the crowds of cruises and tours Avoid the crowds by choosing a boat hire and embark on your own voyage of discovery around Sydney Harbour at your own pace and freedom without being squished by tourists gathering to take photos..
