“We just wanted to say a huge thank you for your patience and attention to detail in assisting us in planning our NYE charter. The crew were beyond amazing, nothing was too much trouble and the spot they landed us for the night was phenomenal.
Warm thanks for a magical evening”
Wanderlust – NYE December 2021
We had an excellent day, could not fault a single thing!
I have to say the crew were outstanding, the captain Sam was very accommodating to all our requests, food and drink service was super high quality. Everyone was so appreciative of their great service. Our clients that we had onboard are ‘wined and dined’ very often, and many have said it was the best event they’ve attended.
Please pass on my gratitude to Sam and all of his team for a wonderful day, and thank you to you for handling all of my questions beforehand.
Hopefully we can find a reason to hold a similar event next year so we can return 😊 will certainly be recommending you guys to others in our business for future memorable events.

Sunseeker – December 2020
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
It has been a pretty bloody awful year in terms of COVID with our team having to work remotely from home, so the harbour cruise on Oscar II was totally awesome giving us a chance to reconnect and bond. A wonderful evening with an amazing crew going above and beyond to provide top notch service and gourmet catering to tantalise the taste buds. Oh and the boat was breath taking. A real treat. Thank you, Daniel, for this memorable experience we will cherish.
Oscar II – December 2020
Thanks for following up. We had a great couple of hours out on the harbour. Our international guests were very excited about being able to see the city from the harbour. The service was great as well, the crew really looked after us well.

Many thanks to you for your help organizing ‘Obsession’ for our birthday celebration. You have been a pleasure to deal with 🙂
We had an absolute ball and wished we could have stayed longer on the boat! Please pass on our thanks to John and Voiter (spelling?) we called him V! They were incredible and the day was perfect with seamless service. Sam and I have reviewed your company on trip adviser and will be asking our friends to share the love also.

Really appreciate all your help in arranging what was an amazing afternoon J

Please pass on our thanks to the Ariston crew – we hope to look for another opportunity to experience their hospitality again.
Ariston – December
Just wanted to extend my gratitude to you for coordinating the Sydney Harbour cruise for our investor event a few weeks back (and apologies for the late note!) Everything went seamlessly; it couldn’t have been better!! I am particularly grateful that you were able to help source sound equipment for the performers, which I recognize is not something you typically do. Thanks so much for going above and beyond!
I look forward to staying in touch and will of course reach out should we be holding a similar event in the future.
Enigma – November 2017
Thanks very much and we had a fantastic time.
The quality of the vessel was excellent and very enjoyable for all on board. I must add that the Captain and his support crew were very accommodating and were attentive with serving and making sure we had a great time.
Most of my guests were from interstate so the experience was memorable.
Please pass on my thanks to the crew and will definitely come back to you when I next need to be on the water.

Obsession – October 2017
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.

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.

“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”

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.

“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.”
