About Sydney

The location of Sydney, the state capital of New South Wales, is one of the most fascinating for any boater. It is situated on the east coast of Australia and surrounds the largest natural harbour of the world. To the east of Sydney is the Tasman Sea, to the north is the Hawkesbury River, and the beautiful Blue Mountains stand on the west. Sydney experiences warm and sometimes hot summers and mild winters, offering ample scope for boaters to enjoy their pursuit.

Sydney Boat Hire Tips

The spectacular beauty of the Sydney Harbour makes it a perfect locale to spend a day on the waters. Hop on a Sydney ferry and experience some of the most well-known landmarks in the area. Take a cruise to seep in the surrounding beauty in a laidback way. Tall ships are also available. Boarding one such tall ship would give you the opportunity to learn more about the history of Sydney while offering a new experience all the way. Kayaking facilities and many high-speed boat tours are also available.

Boat ramps, marinas, and yacht clubs abound in and around the harbour area. Apart from boating, the Sydney Harbour is one of the best places to go fishing. In fact, many are of the opinion that the fishing in Sydney is the best in the state. Mulloway, yellowtail kingfish, whiting, and bream are a few of the species available here. If you are in luck, you might also catch a glimpse of the humpback whales. The nearby Hawkesbury River is yet another place where boaters can enjoy boating amidst breathtaking natural beauty. There are many safe anchorages and marinas along the river. While exploring the sparkling waters of the Sydney harbour, don’t forget to include the nearby Lake Glenbawn, Port Stephens, Myall Lakes, the Lower Illawarra, and the Big River in your itinerary.

    Sailing Sydney Harbour on 'Cutting Loose' Sailboat

    Wonderful experience. Great upfront communication as weather changes came in. Fantastic skipper who was chill yet very competent in guiding our true sailing in a busy harbor. Boat was in great shape, clean and fully functional.

    Perfect way to combine a 21st celebration, seeing Sydney’s waterside highlights and having a bit of fun. Mark was charming, knowledgable and flexible, the boat classically handsome, comfortable and with a good turn of speed, and the whole package great value.

    Hire 38' Sailing Catamaran on Sydney Harbour

    One of the best experiences I have ever had. Robyn was great to work with and had a friendly and caring approach which made our day so great. Robyn went out of her way to accomodate for us on the day and the catamaran we had for the afternoon was simply stunning. Thank you Robyn and the team for such a great day! We will definitely be back
