If you're planning to host your birthday party on the Sydney Harbour and invite about 20-30 guests, then you're looking to pay about $375 AUD per hour. You are allowed to bring your own food on this boat but they also offer catering services if you're looking to go all out for your birthday party. Depending on the type of event you could split the cost with your guests and only pay about $100 AUD per person for a fun day out on the water.

Tips For Having the Best Boat Party

You've done it! You've talked with our Sydney Harbour sales team and picked out the perfect boat and date for your event. The guest list is complete and everyone is ready for the time of their lives. But what now?

Make sure to have your playlist made in advance so you aren't struggling to find the perfect song. You may want to play classic boat songs as your journey begins. But as time goes on and more drinks are had then you will want to bust out the party playlist. 

Depending on the size of your party make sure to designate at least one or two people who will remain sober. At the end of your trip, you're going to want someone who can responsibly help everyone off the boat and make sure nothing was left behind. 

Another must-have for your boating party is sunscreen. You are going to be out in the hot sun pretty much all day after all and you won't want to burn. Don't forget to drink lots of water to stay hydrated. 

And lastly, don't forget to bring a camera to capture the beautiful scenery and the smiling faces of all your guests.
