Boat Day on Pittwater

Boat Day on Pittwater

With its crystal clear waters, pristine beaches, jaw dropping properties, sailing boats and occasional super yachts, Pittwater has long been a perfect playground for the people of Sydney. And the best way to explore and take it all in is from the comfort of our 18 ft. bow-rider.

Explore the bays, drop in a boat toy, try world class hikes and breathtaking lookouts, waterfront restaurants, or family picnics. Walk to West Head Point, or the historic lighthouse at Barrenjoey Headland. Or simply stay in the boat and admire the bush from the shoreline. Visit the unique, water access only settlements, which hold a special place in the hearts of Sydney siders: Scotland Island, Elvina Bay, Lovett Bay, Morning Bay, and Mackerel Beach.

Guests can buy lunch at a waterfront restaurant at Boat House Palm Beach, Church Point Waterfront, or The Newport. Alternatively, we can arrange a BBQ, or provide Wraps to eat anywhere. Coffee, tea, water and fruit are included.
