Alternatively, arrange your own entertainment. For this option, we suggest adding additional vessel hire time to allow DJ/musicians to set up and pack up. This will give them extra time on each side of the charter to prepare &/or unload. (Locations can be the same as the main pick up wharf or another convenient wharf on the way to the main pick up location.)
This also applies for clients that require a decorator to theme their vessel or have extensive BYO catering. Wharfage fees apply.

The vessel has an audio point available for use; we supply the cable and the music runs throughout the speakers on the ferry, all you need to bring is a fully charged music device (eg smart phone, iPod, iPad, etc). Speaker Hire $100

Public Holidays incur a surcharge on the total charter fee

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.

Prestige Harbour Cruises can provide quotes on a selection of boats that match your function requirements and budget.
