Staying overnight on Alila gives you the ultimate escape from everyday life, even here in the very heart of Sydney.

Your ‘hotel room afloat’ is the best of both worlds: it is luxuriously appointed, with a king bed fitted with soft, quality bed linens, yet you can bed down right on deck to feel the gentle harbour breeze on your cheek as you settle in on a typically mild Sydney night.

Alila is the only catamaran on Sydney Harbour with an on-deck saloon sleeping area. It is open, yet extremely private, with the ability to be completely enclosed (and very cosy) in wet or windy conditions.

Downstairs, there are rooms to enjoy a hot shower, and for the kids to bed down. Altogether, Alila can comfortably sleep up to 5 people. Upstairs, you have multiple places to lounge in the sun, as well as a hammock, a BBQ and a large Esky for keeping your food (and perhaps a bottle of champagne) nice and cool.

How it works

Our captain will come and pick you up from any wharf in the main Sydney area. Then it’s time to settle in, pour a glass of wine and let Tim take you on a two-hour tour of Sydney Harbour in luxury and comfort, to see whatever you’d like to see. It’s a great chance to fit in some sightseeing if you are visiting from out of town – enjoy seeing the Sydney Opera House up close from the water, or even sail right underneath the famous (and enormous) Sydney Harbour Bridge!

When you reach your mooring in beautiful Rose Bay, Tim will secure the catamaran, ensure you are comfortable and all set for the evening, and bid you goodbye! You are left to enjoy the luxury catamaran Alila on an entirely exclusive basis, until Tim returns the next morning to take you back to reality.

This is an all-weather vessel. The charter would only be cancelled in the event of very extreme weather conditions, such as a cyclone.

It is fairly uncommon for passengers to suffer from seasickness on a harbour cruise. Should the water become choppy due to windy conditions, the skipper will cruise the more sheltered areas of the harbour. However, if a passenger does become unwell for any reason, we can arrange for them to disembark at the nearest wharf or by water taxi.

Our chef can accommodate most dietary requirements. However in extreme cases we recommend passengers arrange their own catering.

Children of any age are permitted on-board with parental supervision.

There are no restrictions with regards to a Sydney harbour cruise whilst pregnant. Just ensure you notify the chef of any dietary requirements.

Please refer to our full terms and conditions.

We do offer BYO catering on some vessels. Charges may apply. Please ask us to quote on suitable vessels for your event.

*Ciggie burns $150 per burn
