Hire A Boat For Your Next Event

Are you wanting to do something different this birthday? Is the family in town and looking for a fun get together activity? Or maybe it’s just time you got your colleagues together and organised a team-bonding session. Whatever the occasion, a harbour cruise is a great way to relax, get some quality fun in the sun and experience the best of Sydney.

The excitement begins when we pick you up from any of the convenient wharf locations. Then we’ll cruise through the harbour, under the bridge, past the opera house and along this magic coastline. A quick anchor drop and we’ll get the BBQ on, or serve up the delicious pre-organised catering. Then it might be time for a refreshing swim or a laze up at the bow? Grab a cold one and relax.

Sailing tour testimonial
“We are Sydneysiders and are used to taking our beautiful harbour for granted, but this was a special way to experience it. The boat is beautiful, the views are stunning whatever the weather, and who doesn’t love jumping in the water from a yacht??”— Mathew, Australia.

Sailing tour testimonial
“From the first point of contact Lily has been amazing! Thank you for making a very special occasion even more amazing with your hospitality and allowing us to enjoy the best parts of Sydney!”— Ashley, UK

Sailing tour testimonial
“Lily was very quick to reply to any questions I had, and she was so accommodating to my requests. The boat was well-maintained, the BBQ was great, and we had the best time cruising around Sydney harbour and swimming in the ocean. Highly recommended :)”— Jessa, Australia

Sailing tour testimonial
“Lily is truly a skilled yachty that respects the ocean and is simply a great host. We had a super time on board and a twilight harbour sail that all agreed was the “best sail ever” within the harbour as we watched the sun go down over the Opera House.”— Mark, USA

Frequently Asked Questions

How many people can I invite?
“One Ocean” is licensed to carry 20 passengers (not including the crew we provide). This includes children (even babies) and by law we are limited to 20 guests per cruise.
Can I bring children and babies?
Yes! We love family outings and encourage you to bring your kids. “One Ocean” has safe and protected areas, but be sure to keep an eye on them at all times. Also, we supply adult life jackets, but please bring life jackets sized for your kids with you.
Where do we go?
We will pick you up from your preferred pick up/drop off point, usually somewhere close to the CBD, such as Darling Harbour, Walsh Bay Wharfs, etc… Then we will cruise slowly under the Sydney Harbour Bridge, and past the Opera House. From there we will find a nice beach to stop at for you to enjoy a BBQ, a swim, or a few drinks. The beach location is weather dependent, but we will always endeavour to find the most protected spot on the harbour. If there is somewhere you would specifically like to visit, just let us know! We cannot guarantee it will be possible, but we will certainly try our best. We will then finalise your adventure with another short cruise through the harbour, and back to your drop off location.
Can I drop things off prior to my cruise?
We are happy to try to accommodate this option for you if possible. You may be able to meet us near our marina in Balmain the day before your cruise. This will depend on our booking schedule, so contact us and we will try our best!
What does a charter cost?
Cruises are $400p/hr or $425p/hr in December. This includes your skipper, crew, fuel and use of the whole boat. Additionally, there is a $125 BYO charge and a $100 wharf booking fee. Public holidays are an additional $100 per hour.
How do I secure a booking?
A 50% deposit is required when you book. Contact us to confirm the details, and we will email you an invoice. Payment is via direct debit or credit card. You will also have to agree to our Terms and Conditions. The remaining 50% must be paid two weeks prior to your cruise.
Where do you pick up and drop off from?
We can use many different wharfs throughout Sydney. Check out the map on our website to select your preferred pick up and drop off location. We can pick up from one wharf and drop off from another, or pick up from multiple wharfs, but please understand travel to and from the wharfs is included in your cruise time.
Do you cruise in the rain?
“One Ocean” is an all-weather vessel with undercover areas, and your cruise will go ahead unless the weather is deemed unsafe. This is very rare as Sydney Harbour is considered one of the safest in the world.
Can we BYO food and drinks?
Of course. Bring your own food for the BBQ (we’ll cook it) and drinks for the cooler. We will provide all plates, cutlery, cups, serving trays etc…
Can you arrange food for us?
We sure can. Check out our catering page for all the options. BYO drinks.
Is there music on board?
Yes there sure is! We have a quality sound system and speakers for you to use. Bring your own iPod or smart phone and bluetooth or plug into our AUX cable to play your own music all cruise long.
Will I get seasick?
Sydney harbour is one of the safest and most protected harbours in the world, and our catamaran is very stable. It is unlikely that you or your guests will get seasick, but taking sea-sickness medication before your cruise may be a good idea if you are concerned. We will always endeavour to find a calm and protected spot if any of your guests are feeling uneasy.
