For a fully catered experience, the cost per person can be expected to range from $70-$200. To avoid any unexpected costs on the day, we will provide a breakdown of all expenses upon your enquiry.

What is the duration of a Christmas boat hire?

Most Christmas boat parties take place from Nov-Jan, Sydney’s boating high season. The standard hire time for Christmas cruises this time of year are 4 hours or more. However, a few vessels offer 3-hour hires throughout the year. 

What times are available for my Christmas cruise?

Catamarans, yachts, and event boats are usually available for hire during the afternoon or evening. Afternoon hires usually start at either 12pm or 1pm, while evening hires typically begin at 5pm or 6pm. If you let us know your preferred time, we’ll provide you with information on the available options.

What is included in Christmas party boat hire?

Hiring a boat for your Christmas event in Sydney includes the vessel, a professional skipper, and a crew to navigate and manage the boat. The availability of BYO or all-inclusive options or a cash bar depends on the type and size of the boat. You can also add on entertainment like a DJ, band, microphone, and television with HDMI capability.

We’ll review all the details of the Christmas event package to ensure you know what’s included and any extra costs that may apply.

How far in advance should I book?

Large event boats are often fully booked a few months in advance, especially on Saturdays during the Christmas season. To secure your preferred time and date, we recommend booking at least 3-5 months prior to your event.

But we understand that last-minute bookings may be necessary, and we’ll do our best to accommodate them whenever possible. Even if you’re planning an Christmas Boat Party on short notice, we’ll work hard to help you find an available option for your preferred date and time.

I’m organising a Christmas boat party for less than 20 guests. What type of boat do you recommend?

When planning a Sydney Christmas cruise with a group size of 20 or less, it is important to consider your budget and preferences when selecting the appropriate boat.

If you want to have a fun and relaxing day on Sydney Harbour, there are various options available such as catamaran hire, sailboat hire, or small motorboat hire. These boats usually offer BYO food and drink options or basic catering add-ons.

On the other hand, if you’re looking to celebrate in style, luxury yacht hire is a great choice. With 5-star catering and service, you and your team will feel like celebrities for the day. This option is perfect for those seeking the ultimate VIP experience.

I’m organising a Christmas boat party for 20-45 guests. What type of boat do you recommend?

If you’re looking to hire a boat in Sydney for a Christmas event with 20-45 guests, there are several factors to consider. Your budget and preferences will be the main considerations when selecting the right type of boat.

For a BYO-friendly Christmas boat hire, catamaran hire, sailboat hire, or motorboat hire might be suitable options. These boats can offer BYO food and drink options or basic catering add-ons and can be ideal for those seeking a fun celebration.

Can we BYO food and/or drinks?

To comply with RSA guidelines, it’s mandatory to have sufficient food along with the drinks on all cruises. The majority of smaller boats and yachts will allow you to bring your own food. Most boats come equipped with onboard BBQs and the crew will be happy to cook your food for you. We’ll inform you if your boat has a BYO food option available to avoid any surprises. For Christmas events, it’s common for the boat owner to handle catering, which we’ll arrange for you.

Usually, BYO drinks options are available for groups up to 45 guests. Large eskies will be provided by the BYO boats to keep your drinks cold. Ice may or may not be included in your hire. We’ll let you know if your boat has a BYO option available and if a BYO fee applies when you make your booking to avoid any surprises.

Can we bring a DJ?

If you’re planning to host a DJ party on a boat, larger catamarans, yachts, and event boats are great options. We’ll let you know upon booking if having a DJ onboard is possible on your chosen boat. If you’re interested in having a DJ but haven’t arranged one yet, we can help you out. Just let us know and we can provide pricing and options for DJ services upon request.

Are we allowed to swim?

It’s possible to swim on some vessels, especially catamarans and yachts, which are great for a day of water play on Sydney Harbour. If the vessel has easy water access, the captain can take you to perfect secluded swimming spots. If swimming is something you’re interested in, please let our team know when enquiring.

What if it rains?

Boats will head out in all weather conditions when deemed safe by the captain. If the weather is deemed unsafe and the captain needs to cancel, you will receive a 12-month voucher. This voucher is equal to the value of your booking and can be used to reschedule your charter. The past years we’ve had quite a few groups out with a bit of rain, and they all still had an amazing time! There is plenty of space on the boats to keep dry, and sometimes a little rain even adds to the fun!

They were very responsive and helpful, and really ensured we had the best day possible. I would highly recommend using Sydney Harbour Days and I know for certain I’ll be using them again!!

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.
