Why people love the boats we hire:

Nicolette L – March 2022

Really appreciate the amazing customer service we had dealing with Sydney Harbour Days! Karin and Travis were very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Nothing was a bother and their response times were outstanding. We can highly recommend this business!

Rachel H – Dec 2021

I had my 30th birthday on the water in Sydney Harbour and it was definitely a night to remember! Hired a boat perfect for our group and had an awesome captain who was also a great cook with the bbq! The customer service of Sydney Harbour Days was 5 star and communication with them was effortless. I highly recommend and would love to do it again sometime.

Jodie S – May 2022

Karin & Travis were great to work with! So accommodating to every request and kept us informed every step of the way! They had so many options and nothing felt like an issue, definitely would look to book through them again!

Jason M – Jan 2022

Great communication in organizing our staff party. Will definitely be using again. All the staff keep talking about how great the day was. Highly recommend Sydney Harbour Days.

Kris W – Jan 2022

I just wanted to thank you and the boat operators for an amazing day out on the harbour. The entire team had a great day, we swam, we shot guns, we danced and we drank!! The food was fabulous and everyone was raving about how good it was. My team have been on a fair few harbour cruises in our time, but none were as fun as this.

Coleen R – July 2022

Definitely had the best time ever in the boat! We are lucky enough as well to have the most gorgeous sunset! Everything made possible by Karin and Travis. They helped me plan every details and they keep me updated all the time. You won’t regret these two because they will reply as quick as they can.
