Frequently Asked Questions

What happens in case of bad weather on Australia Day?

Your reservation can be transferred if bad weather begins before your party. Keep in mind that light rain doesn’t warrant a reschedule. But if winds exceed 40 km/hr, your boat rental will be rescheduled to ensure your safety and enjoyment.

What type of shoes should we wear?

You and your guests can wear whatever type of shoe you’d like except stilettos. Boat shoes are recommended for your comfort and safety.

Can we go swimming?

We may be able to drop anchor at some of the beautiful beaches along the Sydney Harbour and, if weather permits, you and your guests may go for a swim.

Are children allowed on board?

Definitely! But with all the Australia Day festivities going around, you’ll need to make sure children onboard do not remain unattended.
