SET SAIL FOR THE PERFECT CHRISTMAS PARTY


The holiday season is a time for joy, celebration, and creating unforgettable memories with friends, family, and colleagues. While traditional parties and gatherings are wonderful, why not elevate your Christmas festivities this year by taking to the waters of Sydney Harbour? Imagine sipping a glass of wine under the stars, surrounded by breathtaking views of Sydney’s iconic landmarks – all while enjoying good company.

Let’s explore why hiring a boat on Sydney Harbour for your Christmas party is a decision you won’t regret.

WHY HIRING A BOAT ON SYDNEY HARBOUR IS A MUST

1. Spectacular scenic backdrop – Sydney Harbour is renowned for its unparalleled beauty, and there’s no better way to appreciate it than from the deck of a boat. Your Christmas party will be framed by the glittering city skyline, the iconic Sydney Opera House, and the majestic Sydney Harbour Bridge. This natural and architectural beauty creates an enchanting atmosphere that instantly elevates your event to a whole new level.

2. A unique, unforgettable experience – Break away from the norm and give your guests an unforgettable experience. A Christmas party on a boat is a departure from the traditional indoor setting, offering an opportunity for your guests to socialise, dance, and celebrate in an open-air environment. The gentle lapping of waves, the cool breeze, and the twinkling lights of the city create a magical ambience that’s sure to leave a lasting impression.

3. Customisable venues and sizes – Whether you’re hosting a small family gathering or a larger corporate bash, boats on Sydney Harbour come in a range of sizes and styles. You have the flexibility to choose a vessel that perfectly matches your party’s size and theme. Many boats offer multiple decks, indoor and outdoor spaces, bars and even a space to dance.

4. Stress-free planning – When you hire a boat for your Christmas party, you’re not just renting a venue – you’re enlisting a team of experts to help you plan and execute your event flawlessly. Within the Sea Sydney Harbour team, we have experienced event coordinators who can assist with details from catering to entertainment and logistics. This allows you to relax and enjoy the party while leaving the details in capable hands.

5. Build stronger connections – Being on a boat in a private, more intimate setting encourages mingling and interaction among guests. It’s an opportunity for people to connect and socialise in a way that might not be possible in a larger, traditional venue. Boat parties cater to all ages -kids can enjoy the excitement of being on a boat, while adults can relish the scenic views and festive ambience.

6. Escape the hustle and bustle – Sydney can get quite busy during the holiday season, but when you’re out on the water, you can escape the crowded streets and enjoy a serene and peaceful atmosphere. It’s a tranquil oasis away from the holiday rush.


This holiday season, step away from the ordinary and embark on a nautical journey that will leave a lasting imprint on your guests’ hearts. Hiring a boat on Sydney Harbour for your Christmas party is more than just an event – it’s an adventure that combines stunning visuals, exceptional service, and a unique atmosphere. It’s the perfect opportunity to reflect on the year that’s passed and set intentions for the one ahead.

The charm of the harbour, combined with the luxury and convenience of a boat charter, promises a Christmas celebration that will be cherished for years to come. So, why wait? Set sail for an unforgettable experience and make this Christmas truly special!

HEN’S PARTY GAMES

Planning a Hen’s Party for your bestie and that beautiful bride-to-be? Already booked a boat cruise ✔️✔️✔️ and now planning for some fun games while on board? 

The Sea Sydney Harbour team have created a list of fun-filled, boat-suitable, games to play with your group – it’s all about stress-free and easy planning and you can use our templates, or make these games as funny or as naughty as you like! 

WOULD SHE RATHER

It’s time to see how well you know the bride!

This game is for all on board to play. Create a quiz sheet prior to the day and list 10-15 different preferences, with two similar choices noted e.g coffee vs tea. The party guests must then answer what they think the bride would prefer. After the game is played, the sheets are checked with the bride and the highest score wins!

Would She Rather

NEVER HAVE I EVER

Bet you didn’t know that!

Let’s find out more about the guests and the bride-to-be, with this fun and revealing card game. Questions are asked around the group and guests respond with HAVE or HAVE NOT. It’s funny, embarrassing and revealing and an ideal game for groups, as it’s a great icebreaker! 

Purchase the game online here, or you can make your own version. 



HELP WRITE THE BRIDE’S VOWS

Sometimes an outside observer has some great insights! What should the bride say on her special day?

Prior to the day, bridesmaids can create a vow template for the group or you can use ours. Party guests must come up with the missing words to the vows making them fun and exciting (or naughty), bringing laughter into the group. There is no limit to how creative the group can get filling in the blanks. 

Help Write The Bride’s Vows

TWO TRUTHS & A LIE (BRIDE EDITION)

How good are the bride squad’s poker faces?

The maid of honour and the bridesmaids come up with a series of two truths mixed with a lie. Make this all about the bride and the couple, such as how the bride and groom met, the bride’s initial thoughts of the groom, plans for the future, etc… Get as personal as the bride-to-be will let you get! 

Present the statements to the group, who must then choose which is the lie. This game is exciting with laughter and fun for everyone. 

‘FIND SOMEONE WHO’ BINGO

Great for larger groups on the boat, or if you’re hosting a Hen’s Party on land and venue hopping. 

This game gets all the ladies involved and is great to get your group mingling amongst each other, or with others at the same venue. It can be played in small groups or individually, with the aim to be the first to “find someone who” ticks each of the boxes on the BINGO card. The person or group that crosses off all their card first is the winner! 

You can use the BINGO card that we have created, or add and change details on the card, tailored to your group and/or venue.

Hen’s Party Bingo

COCKTAIL QUIZ

Who is the true cocktail queen?!?

This game involves the group naming as many cocktails as possible – a great game for people that like to work under pressure and love to enjoy a good cocktail. The bride to be can start the game off, and the next person’s cocktail name must start with the last letter of the cocktail named prior. When you can’t come up with a cocktail name, you’re eliminated from the game and the last lady standing wins! The winner can then create their favourite cocktail for the group.



Have fun playing these games with your Hen’s Party guests, and be sure to enjoy the planning time with the bride squad too. Some games noted may require some bridesmaid preparation prior to the day and prizes are a great idea to have for the winners. 

Don’t forget to secure your unique harbour venue and set sail before the veil. Reach out to the Sea Sydney Harbour team or click here to find out more information on our Hen’s Package options – email info@seasydneyharbour.com.au or phone +61 452 188 739.

THE CAPTAIN’S CHRISTMAS TREATS

Christmas is the time for celebrations, fun, good food and drinks, and great company – whether it be on the water or on land. Bonding with your family and friends over Christmas treats and activities is a loved pass-time and one of Captain Frank’s favourite things about Christmas. For those that love food and fun activities, there is no better time of the year!

Want to enjoy some special treats and foodie fun this holiday season? Here are some ideas to explore for making and baking and some of the Captain’s favourites…

CHRISTMAS TREATS & FUN

Shortbread – Everyone loves a good homemade shortbread cookie, and these can be baked in all shapes and sizes, including Christmas trees, stars, Santa, reindeers, etc. This is a fun activity for all involved so gather your friends and family together and cook away. Don’t forget to decorate the cookies, using Christmas coloured icing (or nautical coloured). A true Christmas classic!


Fruit Mince Pies – For a long-lasting Christmas treat, a fruit mince pie will do the trick. This tasty treat is a classic and homemade pies are a favourite. With a mix of fruit, nuts and spices the fruit mince pie is mixed together and left to rest until the pastry cups are cooked and ready to go.


Rum Balls – One for the adults, a classic rum ball puts a twist on all Christmas party occasions. The secret of a rum ball is that they don’t actually contain too much rum, however, this is your personal preference, and you can add more or less according to your liking. Decorate as you please and enjoy them for yourself or give them as a gift. You can never go wrong with an indulgent rum ball, and rum is the liquor of choice for many sailors and sea captains!


Gingerbread Houses – Get the family together and entertain the kids with some gingerbread house creations. Having a gingerbread house bake-off is a great Christmas Day pass-time to keep everyone busy. With house kits available in a number of stores and supermarkets, it’s a fun activity for all ages to do. Add on some extras to the decorations (perhaps some nautical fun) and work to create the best house of all!



The Trifle – One of the longest-running classic desserts around, dating all the way back to the 1500’s; the trifle is the most classic and timeless dessert. Families for generations have passed down their trifle recipes so this dessert often contains family secrets, making each version unique and different. This dish is layered with everyone’s favourites including jelly, custard, cream, jam sponge scrolls and fresh fruit, and the layers piled up look amazing in those beautiful glass dishes.



Pick just one or two treat options, or if you and the kids are on holidays, why not try all these fun treat ideas!?! Share them in person with your family and friends and share your creations with Captain Frank and the team on Instagram.

WHY CHOOSE A CATAMARAN ?

Celebrating on Sydney Harbour is the ultimate party venue for locals and visitors to Sydney, but with an array of boats floating around the harbour, how do you know which boat you should hire? 

The team at Sea Sydney Harbour (SSH) are experts in the industry and we specialise in catamaran hire because we believe this type of vessel is the ideal way to explore and celebrate on the harbour.

Here are our top reasons, why your boat of choice should be a catamaran when hiring a vessel for your next harbour cruise.

WHY A CATAMARAN ?

1. Great layouts and a large amount of space – Catamarans are wider than monohulls, and ultimately this allows them to offer much more deck space for you and your guests to enjoy. While catamarans are often associated with cruising in the warmer months, they have a great mix of indoor and outdoor areas and can be enjoyed in all weather conditions. The layout onboard is functional and allows guests to mingle easily and enjoy the water comfortably.

2. Safe and stable – As catamarans have two hulls, the stability of the vessel is great. The vessel will cut through the water smoothly and there is no severe rocking from side to side. It’s like having two feet on the ground instead of one – you have much more balance! If you’re someone that fears swell or is prone to motion sickness, a catamaran will allow you the best opportunity to enjoy your cruise.

3. Views all round – Catamarans give you the best 360-degree views you can ask for! With Sydney Harbour being one of the best in the world, whether you are a local or visitor to the city, you don’t want to be on a boat and not enjoy the views of the famous Sydney landmarks and cityscape. With spacious saloon areas, and large clear windows these vessels are ideal for general sightseeing, but even better for special events such as viewing the Sydney NYE fireworks or Vivid Sydney from the water.

4. Cruising in shallow water is easy – Hiring a vessel in Summer and hoping to go for a swim? Catamarans have a very shallow draft, which means your skipper can manoeuvre the vessel through shallow waters, where other vessels may not be able to go. The vessel can anchor in quiet coves and get close to beaches, so if you are planning to take a dip in the harbour, this can be done in shallow bays and waters.

5. Those holiday feels – Ever find yourself daydreaming of Summer in Europe, cruising the Greek Islands, Croatia, or any other beautiful island? We know we do! The catamaran – with those front nets to feel the splash of the fresh water on your legs – is the iconic symbol of a holiday experience on the water, and cruising on a catamaran in Sydney Harbour, is the closest experience to those holiday feels that you can get, without leaving your local city.


Are you convinced yet?!? These are just a few reasons why your boat of choice should be a catamaran when you want to get out on Sydney Harbour next. If you have questions or want further information on catamaran options, the Sea Sydney Harbour team is always happy to help.

SYDNEY HARBOUR COVES – OUR TOP PICKS

When hiring a boat on Sydney Harbour, spending some time at anchor in a harbour cove, is a common pass-time. Whether this is to take a dip in the water, cook a BBQ on board, or simply enjoy some amazing views from a unique perspective, there is an array of spots to choose from.

Our team are local experts on the harbour, and they frequently visit coves and locations that they know guests on board will love. Who better to ask for their top picks?!?

ATHOL BAY

A very popular location situated on the north of the harbour near the infamous Taronga Zoo. This bay is sheltered from the Summer winds, so provides charter guests with a comfortable, smooth spot to anchor. Located not too far from a secluded beach, those that a confident swimmers or excellent paddle boarders, can make their way to the sand bank by water, or simply enjoy a swim near to the vessel. Better yet, if you are out on the water at sunset, this location provides spectacular views of the sun setting on Sydney Harbour, with the iconic Harbour Bridge and Opera House as the amazing backdrop.



TAYLOR’S BAY

A beautiful, secluded, quiet bay, you can’t go wrong with a stop here! Also located on the northern side of the harbour, this bay whispers serenity. It’s perfect to stop at when on a day cruise with friends, family or even for a romantic adventure, and if you want to take a dip in the harbour you can do so. It’s also an amazing place to anchor should you wish to stay overnight on the harbour, and sleep in a peaceful environment.  


MILK BEACH

A very popular swimming destination, and one that guests often request to visit! Due to its location, cruising here can be impacted by the swirl and weather conditions on the day, but if you do get the opportunity to visit, Milk Beach is a great all-rounder! It has beautiful views of the city and your experience here will certainly be memorable, with the opportunity to snap some Instaworthy shots. It’s also great for a swim and vessels can often anchor quite close to the beach.


ROSE BAY

In addition to having a nice, soothing name to the bay, this location is popular for its stunning views of the whole harbour. You can get great postcard shots from this bay, and you won’t miss viewing any of the Sydney landmarks. Located on the east side of Sydney, this location is also popular for boarding and disembarking vessels from the local wharf.



NEILSEN BAY

An area located not too far away from Rose Bay, if you have your heart set on spending time swimming and having water fun, this location is ideal. Neilsen Park has shark nets in the water, so if you have guests in your group that are concerned about the harbour’s wildlife, you can ease their worries. It’s also a nice location generally and not too overcrowded with vessels on the water.

BOAT PARTY PLANNING TIPS

Having a party on a boat on Sydney Harbour is the ultimate way to have fun and take in the amazing sites. Let your planning process also be fun and stress-free, by following these simple planning tips!

TOP PLANNING TIPS

The Sea Sydney Harbour team spend their days planning and organising events on boats. Discover their top planning tips to follow…

1. Have an initial idea on guest numbers – All vessels have a maximum capacity that they must work within. Having a clear idea of your guest numbers is important for a boat party in your early planning stages, to ensure that you book the most suitable vessel for your group size. Where possible, leaving a little bit of leeway in case guest numbers change is a good idea, but remember when you confirm a booking you are locking in that specific vessel.

2. Keep it simple – Being on a boat is an activity in itself. Your group will be entertained for hours mingling and enjoying food and drinks, and will love the time on board. Don’t feel the need to fill up the schedule with lots of extra activities – one or two is fine but allow time for your group to just enjoy each other’s company and being on a boat on Sydney Harbour.

3. Try not to worry about the weather – Bring your positive vibes on the day and you will have a good time.  While we definitely hope the sun is shining, rain or shine, you WILL have fun with your family and friends!

4. Decide on a boarding location that is convenient for you – Consider how you and your guests will be getting to the wharf on the day e.g. public transport or driving, and select a location accordingly. Plan to arrive 15 minutes before your cruise is set to commence to avoid any delays. While generally boarding and disembarking does take place at the same location, if you have alternate plans after your cruise, a different location can be an option.

5. Plan adequate food for all – If you choose to BYO food and drinks, ensure there is a substantial amount for all. The simplest idea for food is pre-prepared platters or BBQ items, as this keeps preparation to a minimum when on board. If choosing to bring food for the BBQ, our friendly crew will cook this for you. All BBQ utensils and cleaning products are available onboard, so you just need to bring your food and drinks for the day.

6. Don’t forget your drinking water – A must for all boat charters, but something that is often forgotten. Don’t forget this!

7. Limit decorations and extra items – All vessels are well-maintained and where décor is used the look is modern and sophisticated. We understand that some events are planned with a specific theme in mind, however, limiting decorations and items being brought on board will make the boarding and disembarking process quicker and easier. Remember that planning an event on a boat is different to land venues, and bump-in time or pre-access cannot always be offered, so it is a good idea to keep it simple. At the end of your cruise, items brought on board will also need to be taken off or disposed of, so keep this in mind.

8. Communicate accurate details to your guests – To avoid stress and lots of phone calls on the day, ensure all your guests have accurate details, including cruise date and time, exact boarding location (with a link if possible), and advise them if you want them to bring anything with them on the day.


Use these simple tips to help you have a smooth, stress-free planning process in the lead up to your cruise celebration. The Sea Sydney Harbour team is always happy to help and assist with your planning too.

BIRTHDAYS ON THE WATER

Turning a year older and looking for a unique party venue?!? Why not celebrate on Sydney Harbour with Captain Frank and the team!

Birthdays come and go every year… some love to lap up the attention and others prefer to let the day slide under the radar… but big or small, we all deserve some kind of celebration. It’s the one day of the year that you can truly say is about you, you, you, and no one can tell you otherwise!

Whether you are looking to host a low-key, mid-week event, or make a day or night of it on the weekend, you can hire your own private floating venue for an intimate group of family and friends. Why share a space with others, in a restaurant or bar, when you can hire a venue privately on one of the most beautiful harbour’s in the world?

FLOATING VENUE OPTIONS

Sea Sydney Harbour specialises in intimate gatherings on the harbour and the team host a range of functions, including birthdays of all ages. With vessels currently ranging in capacity and different vessel styles available, there will undoubtedly be a vessel that you will love. Opt for an open one-level sailing catamaran, or a luxury motor catamaran with two levels and a range of internal and external deck spaces, perfect for all weather conditions.

CUSTOMISATION

One of the best features of Sea Sydney Harbour’s private charters is that the team customise the experience to suit your needs – it’s your birthday so the day should be about you, you, you! While we recommend cruise durations of 3-4 hours to allow time to enjoy your time on the water, shorter cruise durations are available if preferred. There is also the option to select from catering and beverage packages (selected vessels only), or the option to BYO food and beverages onboard. Pending your budget, the team can tailor a package to suit your requests, making each celebration unique and your birthday extra special!

ONBOARD ACTIVITIES

Want to go that extra step and add some fun activities to your cruise? The team have a range of optional extras that can be organised including:

  • the hire of water equipment
  • an onboard DJ
  • a drag queen hostess
  • a cocktail masterclass
  • laser clay pigeon shooting

PLAN EARLY

In the present time of writing this post, there is no denying that the world is moving through an evolving and unfamiliar situation. However, it is important that special occasions still be recognised and celebrated (with some precautions). Despite any external impacts on events, every individual has a birth date and this remains certain each year, so there is no reason why the planning for birthday celebrations can’t start early.

Captain Frank and the team would love to have you onboard and what better way to celebrate another year of life, than by enjoying your time on the water, with some food, drinks and an intimate group of family and friends. You will create memories that will carry you through the year, until your next birthday and beyond!

Don’t just take our word for it… Check out these testimonials from birthday events Captain Frank and the team have hosted…

______________________________

“I booked the Enigma X for a dozen friends and myself for a friend’s first birthday in Australia.
We were picked up at 3:30 and celebrated on the boat until 6:30 including watching the sunset over the harbour. Both of the crew were a lot of fun to chat with and handled every need/request with (the) utmost professionalism.
Thank you so much for making our friend’s birthday a memorable one! We’ll most definitely be back again!” – Natasha

“Unforgettable day ! From the moment we stepped on the boat Captain Frank and Tye could not do enough for us. They were AWESOME ! Everyone had a day that they won’t forget. We set sail at 3, returning at 7 so got to see the best of everything on our amazing harbour. I can not fault the Catamaran – there was plenty of room for everyone to spread out, yet we were still altogether. It’s a great layout for socialising. Everything about the day exceeded our expectations and was PERFECT !
Thank you again, Captain Frank and Tye – We will definitely be back !” – Narelle
