Where do your luxury vessels depart from?
We typically depart from King Street Wharf, off Lime Street Sydney, as it’s protected from the wind and waves and is safe for boarding and disembarking of passengers. We also pick up from most public wharves on Sydney Harbour, Darling Harbour and Circular Quay. If you have a specific pick-up location in mind please let us know.
Where do you normally cruise to?
It depends on what length of time your luxury yacht charter is, and which direction the breeze is blowing, sea and swell conditions. The Captain on the day will decide the best places to see. You will normally cruise by Darling Harbour, Sydney`s Cockle Bay, Harbour Bridge, Opera House, Eastern suburbs and North Shore suburbs. We also anchor up at some of the most pristine beaches on Sydney Harbour, which offers pristine clear water for swimming and white sandy beaches during daylight charters only.
How do I get to King Street Wharf, Sydney?
King Steet Wharf is only a 5-minute drive or a 15-minute walk from the centre of Sydney CBD and is easily accessible by either walking, car or light train. Alternatively, we can organise a charter bus or limousine for your group.
What happens if we have bad weather | rain | storm on our scheduled cruising date?
In the event of extremely bad weather, we will re-schedule to another date which suits both parties, it’s important for us to give you the best possible experience so you’ll join us for future luxury cruises. Generally, we operate 99.9% of the time, as all three yachts are large Superyachts and are capable of handling all conditions on Sydney Harbour.
Am I likely to get seasick while cruising?
Our vessels are large Superyachts and range in size from 62 – 90-foot which boasts great stability on the water. Some of our yachts also have stabilizers for extra stability on the water, however, these stabilizers are mainly used in open sea and not required for sheltered waters like Sydney Harbour. If you would prefer to take precautions, there are plenty of seasickness remedies available from your local Pharmacy.
Can I Swim whilst on a charter?
Swimming is permitted on daytime charters only. Guests are advised to bring there own beach towels. Please advise us prior to your charter, so that the Captain and crew are aware of your planned activity. We will also include any swimming activity in your charter itinerary for our crew reference.
