Engagement Party Boat Hire – FAQs

How much does engagement party boat hire on Sydney Harbour cost?

The cost of hiring a boat for your engagement party can vary depending on the type of vessel and the season, with hourly rates ranging from $350 to $2,500. But don’t worry, we’ll provide you with a detailed breakdown of all expenses upfront to avoid any surprises. Typically, there is a wharf pick-up and drop-off fee of around $100-$200. Many boats offer BYO food and drinks options, and all come equipped with a sound system for your convenience.

For a stress-free, fully-catered experience, we also offer packages that include waitstaff at a cost of $70-$200 per person. Whether you’re on a tight budget or ready to splurge, we have options to fit your needs and make your engagement boat cruise on Sydney Harbour unforgettable.

What is the duration of an engagement boat party hire?

During peak season (September – April) or on Saturdays year-round, boats are typically hired for 3-4 hours or more. However, some vessels do offer 3-hour hires year-round. On the other hand, during the low season (May – August) and on weekdays year-round, most boats and yachts require a minimum of 3-hour hires and some even offer short two hour cruises or Harbour transfers.

What times are available for an engagement party cruise?

Catamarans, yachts, and event boats are available during both afternoon and evening hours. Typically, afternoon hires start at either 12pm or 1pm, while evening hires usually begin at 5pm or 6pm. Let us know your preferred time, and we’ll help you find the perfect boat for your event.

What is included in engagement party boat hire?

When planning an engagement boat party in Sydney, the package usually includes the boat, a professional skipper, and crew to handle navigation and management. Depending on the type and size of the boat, you can choose between BYO or all-inclusive packages.

You can also make your celebration even more memorable by adding entertainment options like a DJ. Our team will provide you with a detailed event package review to ensure you are aware of everything that’s included and any potential additional costs.

How far in advance should I book?

Booking in advance is always a good idea to ensure you get your preferred date and time, particularly for popular boats that can be booked months in advance, especially on Saturdays during the high season. It is best to book at least three months before your event to secure your preferred boat.

If you’re planning an engagement party on short notice, we’ll work hard to help you find an available option for your preferred date and time.

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

When planning an engagement party for 20 guests or fewer, your group’s budget and preferences will be the main two things to consider when choosing the right type of boat.

If you’re looking for a fun and relaxing day out on Sydney Harbour, catamaran hire, sailboat hire, or small motorboat hire are all great options. These boats can offer BYO food and drink options or basic catering add-ons. 

For those who want to celebrate in style, luxury yacht hire is an amazing option. With 5-star catering and service, your guests will feel like movie stars for the day! This option is perfect for those who want to make their engagement celebration truly unforgettable.

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

If you’re planning an engagement party with 20-45 guests, your group’s budget and preferences will be the main two things to consider when choosing the right type of boat.

For a BYO-friendly cruise, you might want to consider single level or two story catamaran hire, sailboat hire, or motorboat hire. These options can offer BYO food and drink options or basic catering add-ons. They can be a great choice for those who want to have a fun celebration.

For those looking to celebrate in style, luxury yacht hire is an amazing option. With 5-star catering and service, your guests will feel like movie stars for the day! This option is perfect for those who want to turn heads on the water and make their engagement party unforgettable.

I’m organising an engagement party for 45+ guests. What type of boat do you recommend?

If you’re planning an engagement party with over 45 guests, your group’s budget and preferences will be the main two things to consider when choosing the right type of boat.

For those organising a large engagement celebration, event boat hire is a great choice. Event boats have all the necessary amenities for a fun party, great catering options and can accommodate a big group.

If you’re looking to go all out and celebrate in style, luxury yacht hire is an amazing option. With 5-star catering and service, your guests will feel like movie stars for the day! Our luxury (super) yacht hire options are perfect for those who want to turn heads on the water and make their engagement celebration unforgettable.

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 engagement events, it’s common for the boat owner to handle catering, which we’ll arrange for you. Alternatively you can suggest your own catering.

Usually, BYO drinks options are usually 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?

Larger catamarans, yachts, and event boats are especially suitable for hosting DJ parties. Upon booking, we will inform you if having a DJ onboard is possible on your chosen boat. If you’re interested in having a DJ at your event but don’t have one lined up yet, don’t worry! We can help you arrange this. Pricing and options are available upon request, so please let us know if you need any assistance with this.

Are we allowed to swim?

Depending on the vessel, this is possible. In particular, catamarans are a great option for a day of water play on Sydney Harbour. If you are on a vessel that has easy water access included, your captain will take you to the perfect secluded swimming spots. Please let our team know if swimming is something you’re interested upon 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!

I recently organised a boat for my birthday through Sydney Harbour Days and found the whole process with Travis and Karin incredibly smooth and enjoyable. 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.
