Below are just some of the happy clients of
Sydney Harbour Specialists.

Hi Daniel, 

We all had a great time, the day ran smoothly and even the weather turned out to be nice!

The staff on the day were all amazing, all food was brought out in a timely manner and communication throughout the day was excellent between all the crew. Claudia was so lovely, she asked for my confirmation first before any decisions were made (when to dock, what time for speeches etc).

Thank you for all your assistance throughout the planning process, you remained in contact and ensured all our needs were accommodated to. There was talk of another cruise once we hit 200 stores so I will be in touch then!

Thank you again.


Corroboree – April 2017 

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your fantastic organisational skills.  From the water taxi pick up to arriving in time for our seaplane flight.  Lunch was absolutely sensational and then our limo back home.  Everything worked perfectly, except that we were back a little late, not that we minded.

My husband had an absolutely wonderful day.  He’s put it right up there in his favourite things we’ve done.


Thankyou Thankyou Thankyou.


Seaplane Lunch flight Cottage Point Inn – March 2017

Keith & Nikki   were amazing and couldn’t have been more accommodating! please send my apologies to Nikki, as someone put her on onion chopping duty all night!!!

Birchgrove – December 2016

“We all agree that Australia is amazing but we think the highlight of the trip was the boat cruise. The crew was the best, two great guys. We’re talking about coming back with all of our children. The last trip was just me & my sons. The girls are jealous now. I cannot tell you how great & how much fun the boat tour was. We will hope to do it again with all of us. Dave & Frank were the best. Thanks again”

“What a wonderful day was had by all, I arranged a surprise 60th birthday on
Sydney harbour for my husband who is mad about boats and cruising the
waterways I chose to hire Seduced a 50ft cruiser, we found the day was well
organised very informative and the food was great I found Daniel from Sydney
Harbour Specialists was so helpful and went out of his way to make this
special day for my husband very memorable indeed, I also got Daniel to
arrange a second day showing us all the hidden secrets of the northern beach
areas of Sydney which also was arranged very well had lunch at Burnt Orange
which was recommend by Daniel, what a glorious location and wonderful meal
we had, our driver showed us many interesting locations and it was very
evident he enjoyed his work as he made for a second memorable day I would
not hesitate to recommend Sydney Harbour Specialist and hope we will be

Daniel for a job well done.”

Seaduced – December 2015

“The cruise was absolutely fantastic and we were blessed with the weather. I thought for a moment we were a little unlucky as the clouds rolled over, and then the sunshine came back out. My sister said she couldn’t have imagined her day any different. Patrick and Archie were amazing and made all the guests feel extremely comfortable and which only added to the pleasure of the day.

One of the girls on board has also decided for her birthday she wants to do exactly what we have done (sail around the harbour) so I will pass your details on to her.

Everyone had a fantastic time and I have received nothing but compliments which must be passed onto Patrick and Archie.

I will not hesitate to recommend your company and in particular the OzCat for anyone thinking of doing a similar thing to what we did over the weekend.

Thank you again for all that you have done for me over the past few months your company has definitely made this a memorable experience for not only the guests on board but my sister. All I wanted was a perfect day for her and it appears I have achieved this so thank you.

Kind regards,

Thanks again for a great afternoon.

Boat charter on Seaduced – May 2014

“This is just a short note to let you know that our group had a fantastic time on Coast last Friday night.

We have received a lot of great feedback on the experience and the evening.
People really enjoyed the boat, the food and hospitality. (I wish that I could have stayed for the entire evening!)
Team members have commented to me that Kate and the crew were very warm and welcoming, and made people feel right at home (including a birthday girl!). The food received great reviews (prawn and chorizo skewers a big hit), and I understand that the amount of food was perfect and well-paced (right down to the curry at the end). It sounds like the beverage package also worked out well!
People were also very appreciative of the 2nd pick up at 7pm.
So thanks very much again for hosting a great night for us. There isn’t anything which we would have done differently for that evening.”
