    Boating Guide - Sydney

    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 harbor in 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. Check out our Sydney Boating Guide for more inspiration and motivation to hire a boat!

    Sydney Boat Hire Tips

    The spectacular beauty of Sydney Harbor 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. Dinner cruises are also available to see the sunset and enjoy a meal on board. Kayaking rentals and many high-speed boat tours are also available. Book a catamaran or hire a party boat in Sydney if you want to host an event on the water!

    Boat ramps, marinas, and yacht clubs abound in and around the harbor area. Apart from boating, Sydney Harbor 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 harbor, don’t forget to include the nearby Lake Glenbawn, Port Stephens, Myall Lakes, the Lower Illawarra, and the Big River in your itinerary.

      Sydney Harbour Charter on Beautiful Sailing Catamaran

      Juliet was fantastic to work with when organising the charter! We had a fantastic afternoon with our skipper, Tom, who brought a great presence on board - and manned the BBQ. The boat was lovely with great amenities, even having salad dressings available. Everything was clean and well cared for, and we got to see the best of Sydney harbour on our sail. Thanks to Juliet and Tom for an amazing afternoon!

      Charter MV Salute Motor Yacht on Sydney Harbour

      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.

      Catalyst Sailing Catamaran Charter in Sydney Harbour

      A fantastic day around our beautiful Sydney Harbour with Robyn and Captain Elaine. The boat was kept immaculate, and both Robyn & the Captain were very accomodating and knowledgeable. Really lovely to spend the day with them, and a delight to be onboard. Our guests had a great time. We will definitely be back! The Quinns

      Skippered Cruise on 33ft "Macleay" Timber Cruiser Yacht on Sydney Harbour

      We had a great time aboard this unique boat! It works well having indoor and outdoor seating areas. Was a bit tight in terms of where we could lay out food platters but we made it work and everyone had an awesome time. Our skipper was great and super helpful with wrangling our floatie toys to tie on the back. Although we had to change pick up locations due to the swell the skipper made up the time lost and we were treated to a magnificent sunset. Would recommend. THANK YOU!

      Blodwen organised a great boat day for a group of 13. We felt welcomed soon as we reached the wharf, Brian and Peter, provided exceptional service! The boat was lovely, big and clean and Brian prepared the yummiest bbq. Thank you to all three!

      Sailing Sydney Harbour on Luxury 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.
