If one your party is late arriving at the pick up point and departure is delayed, you will lose some of your charter time on the water.
We have never taken out a boat before and we were surprised how easy it was to drive.Wayne D'SouzaI just wanted to say what a wonderful experience it was going out in one of your boats. Cruise under the Sydney Harbour Bridge, past the Opera House and impressive foreshore homes.
Sydney Harbour is famous for its majestic views, secluded coves, waterfront mansions and of course the famous icons such as the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House.  To get out there and enjoy self drive boat hire you don’t even need a boat license as our  three 20 ‘ Arvor Half cabin cruisers only go 8 knots.
We can point out the safe anchorage spots, interesting places to see, possible stopping points such as the fish markets and if you like – where the fish have been biting recently! To the west, you can go as far as Gladesville Bridge and Lane Cove River; this includes Cockle Bay and Sydney Fish Markets.
There is a map of the harbour to guide you and an easy to understand illustrated boat manual for reference. If you do have a boat license, a faster boat for hire is available with Power Arvor which will motor around quickly up to 20 knots, depending on number of passengers. Rescheduled charters must be used within 3 months of the original booking date.Most charters go ahead as Sydney Harbour is one of the safest harbours in the world and is well protected from strong ocean currents and ocean winds. You can contact us if you need to ask questions by VHF radio or by mobile phone if you have one on board.
Regardless of whether you have a license or not, the vessels are restricted by Waterways to the Hire Drive Plying Limit. To pull into any other area is at your own risk, any damage caused to vessels will result in the bond being retained by us. The bond of $2,000 is taken by credit card imprint and kept for at least 14 days in case of loss or damage to the vessel, other vessels or property. The next step is for you to sit back, relax and look forward to a wonderful experience on Sydney Harbour.
