There are various locations around the harbour where you and your guests can be picked up from/dropped off. On the map, you will see all of the wharf locations and each location has its page to give you further information. Some boats can’t access certain wharves due to their size, but we note this down on the location pages so you can bear this in mind when choosing your wharf pick up.
When arranging a boat, we allow guests to choose their pickup and drop off points, but we can advise on this if you’re not too familiar with Sydney or the Harbour. Usually, guests are picked up from the same wharf location, although multiple picks up points can be arranged for an additional fee. Please bear in mind that various pickups do eat into the time you have on board so you if you are arranging several stops you may want to accommodate for that when booking your boat.
THIS IS JUST BASIC INFORMATION WE HAVE GATHERED TO HELP OUR CLIENTS. WE ARE NOT A TOURIST INFORMATION CENTRE WE ARRANGE BOAT CHARTERS.
