There is an easy bond that is created between people who are meeting for the first time as they are sharing an experience together rather than just four walls."

These guys were great - helpful staff who assisted in booking and all my questions, an absolute legend of a skipper and crew (Shane and Margie) who made sure the 30 of us had the best time out on the water and took us out to a nice bay where we swam all afternoon

The skipper & crew were super helpful and friendly, making everything go smoothly throughout the day. Our group has a blast all throughout the day and if anything it went by so quickly! Look forward to booking another day out on the harbour hopefully in the near future.

It was less than a month away before I started looking at booking a catamaran for my 25th birthday. The website showed what boat options there were and summarised all the features and costs which made it easy for comparative purposes. I had my eyes set on the Hestia and not knowing that there would be an annual yacht party... More

We chartered 'Amour de la Mer' one of the catamarans on offer from Sydney Harbour Escapes to celebrate my husband's 40th birthday. It was 25 of us. We were looked after so well by Brien and Cath who were both lovely and attentive. They took us to some lovely bays where we were able to swim in beautiful clear waters.... More
