The Vessel and I!
I pride myself on the experience you have, and haven't had a bad review yet, and that's after 500+ charters under my belt! But simply put, I'll look after you, not just treat you as a number. I own and skipper the boat, always. So you know who's going to take you out.
The vessel has just undergone a very expensive refit and is an incredibly comfortable catamaran in all conditions, thanks to the handy, fully sealed and openable saloon cockpit doors that enable it to be fully shut off or fully open up, depending on the conditions of the day.
Cher is one of the greatest female performers of all time and you can now turn back the time with our Professional Cher Tribute Show and Cher's greatest hits.
Rewind the clock back to the 80’s with DVJ K.R.S straight after the show.

Step on board and begin your Sydney Harbour adventure. Our modern 78ft vessel is designed to feel luxurious and super comfortable, so you’ll feel right at home. We depart from Darling Harbour and begin our cruise towards the Sydney Harbour Bridge. We then pass the iconic Sydney cityscape and Sydney Opera House.
Enjoy 360-degree views of the iconic attractions as we sail past. We think lunch should be a long, lavish affair, so we serve generous al la carte meals inspired by locally sourced, regionally inspired delights. Think local seafood from the Hawkesbury, lamb from lush pastures in the Riverina and beef sourced from the upper Hunter Valley. We pair these with a selection of beers, wines, soft drinks and tea or coffee. Our wines have been hand selected by our sommelier from some of the finest wine regions in New South Wales – so wine lovers are in for a real treat!
After lunch we head back past Taronga Zoo and Luna Park before arriving back into Darling Harbour at 2.40pm.
