Our Story

Organising Your Boat

Organising a boat rental for your event can seem like a daunting task. With so many boats and agencies out there, it can be overwhelming to decide which one to choose.

At Sydney Harbour Days, we take the hassle out of the process by doing all the legwork for you. Our expertise lies in finding the perfect boat for your event, so you don’t have to spend hours searching. Just tell us your dates and requirements, and we’ll take it from there. It’s as easy as saying, “Let’s book it!”

Best of all, our pricing is the same as booking directly with the boat owner. We provide expert advice and access to a wide range of vessels at no extra cost. So why not let us take care of everything and make your boat rental experience easy and breezy?

Why Sydney Harbour Days

The idea for Sydney Harbour Days sprang up during a lively conversation between two Sydney tourism gurus (that’s us!) about how to improve the boat rental scene. We couldn’t help but notice that many boat booking websites were confusing, making it hard for customers to find what they were looking for.

So, we set out on a mission to create a boat rental company that would simplify the process of organising events or celebrations on Sydney Harbour, making it accessible to everyone. Thus, Sydney Harbour Days was born – a straight-shooting, no-nonsense boat rental company with one goal in mind: to make our customers happier than a dolphin doing backflips!

Our secret weapon? We keep customer experience front and center, always. From the moment you get in touch with us to the time you disembark, we want your experience to be as smooth as a calm harbour at sunrise.
