Frequently Asked Questions

What happens in case of bad weather on the day of Vivid Sydney?

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 can wear whatever type of shoe you’d like, except stilettos, but boat shoes are recommended.

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 we want you to join in on the Vivid Sydney celebration without a hitch, so make sure kids do not remain unattended while on board.
