Sydney boat trips can be the highlight of any family vacation or company event. Normally the charter would consist of a cruise of Sydney Harbour while dining on gourmet fare from the motor vessel’s galley. Working with the charter company, a properly sized vessel, venue and menu can be set up specifically for the family or company. Alternatively if it is a simple, ad hoc cruise, guests can get reservations on regularly scheduled Sydney boat trips.

Touring Sydney Harbour on Sydney boat trips can be a simple two hour excursion with light refreshments during a quick go round of the harbour. Taking in the major sights like the Sydney Opera House, the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Rocks area, gives the guest a taste of the history in the area. If your family or guests wish to have longer Sydney boat trips, those are available as well. In fact cruises can be chartered from two to eight hours in length and can be scheduled for a day or night cruise.

Specialty Sydney boat trips can be chartered for weddings, anniversaries, graduations, meetings and conferences. Motor vessels are available for small blue water fishing expeditions or excursions up to Pittwater and Hawkesbury River. Larger charter vessels for 100 to 800 guests are available for lease for wedding parties and anniversaries. They are equipped with sound systems and dance floors and can handle large parties easily. These vessels are also available for corporate charters so companies can showcase a particular product launch or host an offsite conference for clients and guests. Sydney boat trips can be chartered for pleasure or business.

Menu planning for Sydney boat trips is coordinated with the Charter Company and motor vessel. The menu for each vessel is different, but is designed to provide options to satisfy anyone’s gourmet tastes. Food services available range from tray served canapés and finger food to buffet style lunches or dinners and, ultimately, formal table dining. Various fresh seafood, beef, chicken and lamb dishes are available to choose from. All the gourmet food is prepared fresh the day of the cruise, either shore side or in the vessel’s galley by an executive chef. Sydney boat trips that include food service will usually include a beverage service package as well.

Sydney boat trips offer many opportunities for families and companies to have a meaningful and memorable vacation or event on the beautiful blue waters of Sydney Harbour.
