All our boats have protection from the elements, however, they are designed for open viewing and are best experienced in relatively dry and mild weather conditions. If it’s forecast for heavy, consistent rain or very strong winds we may cancel the tour and customers are entitled to credit with us or a full refund. However, it rarely rains for a sustained period of time in Sydney, so if it is forecast for some sporadic rain, we will likely go ahead with the tour.

Both our boats have onboard toilet facilities, however, the toilets on SeaSki and Spectre is slightly small, so we advise guests to only use this toilet if absolutely necessary. We are never in the boat for more than 1 hour at a time.

Our boats remain in enclosed waters at all times and we are never more than 5 minutes from land. We do not venture into the open sea, therefore conditions are usually very calm, however, due to the number of boats on Sydney Harbour and Pittwater and Broken Bay there are occasionally small waves or ‘boat wash’ that can rock the boat. However, our boats are very robust and designed to cope with any conditions on the harbour and meet strict Sydney Harbour Maritime safety regulations.

 

 

Our customers’ well-being and safety is our number 1 priority. Our new, open-style sports boats are kept in immaculate condition and cleaned and sanitised meticulously before and after every charter.  We also observe government recommended social distancing protocols and our qualified captains undergo regular health & safety training. 

The boats are not suitable for anyone with mobility issues because we have 3 stops and toilet facilities are for emergencies only. However, we have had guests in their 80s who are relatively fit and mobile who have had hugely enjoyable experiences. So age is not a barrier, just attitude and mobility.

All our boats operate with $10 million public liability insurance. They are fully compliant and registered with the marine authorities AMSA and RMS to carry passengers commercially on Sydney Harbour. This includes annual tests by certified marine surveyors to check that all current commercial safety standards are in place. The boats also undergo twice-monthly mechanical checks. All our skippers are highly experienced and hold the appropriate commercial skipper qualifications.

Gratuities are optional, but if you really enjoyed the day and felt the crew did a great job, a tip would be much appreciated.

 

All cruises on public holidays incur a 25% surcharge on the total cruise cost. This will be charged before departure.

No, smoking is prohibited on the boat.

Unfortunately, our boats are not wheelchair accessible. Both of our boats have ample room for moving about the deck. However, if you think mobility may be an issue on the boat, please contact us to discuss the suitability of our tours for you or your guests.

 

You are welcome to bring your own alcoholic beverages. On Spectre, our VIP Sports Cruiser we have two small fridges for drinks. Our SeaSki boat is equipped with a fridge or for cold drinks.

While the boats are mostly dry there can be occasional splashes of water due to strong wind or passing ferries. However, towels and wind jackets are provided should you need them. Guests may also step off the boat onto the beach in very shallow water and get their feet wet.

No, it is not permitted to bring a baby. All children must be able to take a seat due to safety requirements and remain seated on the boat for up to 45 minutes. We do have child lifejackets available.

We recommend all guests bring sun protection, but also a jacket because it can get a bit chilly on the water, even in summer. Casual shoes or sandals are best because we land on beaches.

No, there is no fishing on any of our boats or tours.

For your own safety there is a strict no heels shoe policy on all vessels.
