Ahoy!

If you're keen to cruise Sydney Harbour but your dates aren't available, please message me as I may be able to offer an alternate experience. Click the "message" or "contact host" button.

I am a local skipper on Sydney Harbour, and I thoroughly enjoy doing what I love every day. My passion for boats and the water started from a really young age when I was out on my uncle’s boat up around Coffs Harbour. I developed a love for the water and decided then and there I wanted to make a career out of it. I have many years of experience on Sydney Harbour, and lots of knowledge about the area also.

On days when I am not available to host the cruise myself, my co-skippers Pete, James or Ben will host this experience. They have years of experience on Sydney Harbour working alongside me as both a deckhand and skipper.

See you onboard!

Where you'll be

There is no better place to experience Sydney Harbour than from the water! Enjoy plenty of prime photo opportunities amongst the views of the Sydney Opera House, Harbour Bridge, and other iconic landmarks, as this small vessel allows you to get up close and personal like no other. Pending the weather, we may anchor in a quiet cove for a short period while you enjoy morning/afternoon tea and lap up the luxury of being on your own private vessel.

From the moment my partner and I stepped onto the catamaran, we were incredibly well looked after. Frank's co-skipper Alex welcomed us on board along with the friendly deckhand. It was an incredibly rainy day, but despite this we had an incredible time. The afternoon tea was great and Alex was incredibly knowledgable about the area and offered to take photos of us. Communication with Frank before the trip was also great. Would highly recommend this experience to anyone visiting Sydney.

We had a wonderful time celebrating and soaking up the beautiful views on Frank’s harbour cruise. We were worried about the weather and although we didn’t have sunshine, Frank was absolutely right, it’s impossible to not have a delightful time. Thank you to Frank and his team.

Had a great day on the harbour just my partner and I on this glorious boat. Was somewhat short lived but a great hour and a half taking in the serenity 🙌

Excellent day boating with Ty and James. They took us around Sydney harbor , found a great cove on a windier day, and went above and beyond to make it great experience including grilling up burgers. Value was good, we would book with them again
