We had our wedding party on 24th of June 2018. My wedding went off without a hitch. All the guests enjoyed the lavish buffet, and they provided service with a smile. I would love to recommend this company to anyone who needs a catering service in the future. Thanks Allan and the excellent service provided by your delightful employees. The price was reasonable and the quality we received was 5 star.
I arranged our team Christmas party through Harbourside cruises and was very impressed with the entire process. They were able to tailor the standard package to suit the budget I had provided. The booking process was so simple, I even called to confirm that there was nothing else I needed to do as it seemed too easy that I thought I must have forgotten something. Highly recommend!
More a family than a business. Staff were so helpful and attentive. Brings the best Sydney Harbour has to offer in a great package. Thoroughly recommend Harbourside Cruises for those special events like Weddings, Hens/Bucks night, Corporate and just the occasional personal pat on the back for your partner and self.Great food, great entertainment, just GREAT!
I have now booked two cruise with Harbour Cruises both times they have been extremely accommodating as I had international guest both times I have had nothing but great feedback from my guest - I would highly recommend Alan and the crew and look forward to using them again
We asked Harbourside Cruises to take care of our Green Card Party celebrations on the harbour, for our family and friends, both local and from New York. This 4 hour cruise was the very best! DJ Stanley, Marissa our host, and the friendly staff on deck, and Carmen and Allan behind the scenes -- these guys KNOW customer service! Imagine trying to set this up for 100 people? They did, and passed with flying colours! It was a joy, and everyone loved it. Thank you so much! Michael and Dianne.
I have been on many, many Sydney harbour cruises and Harbourside Cruises was one of the best I have been on. The boat was enormous, very well fitted out, and extremely clean. The crew were outstanding, hardworking, and friendly. All in all I would recommend Harbourside Cruises to anyone looking to book a cruise.
Dear Allan, Carmen and Harbourside Cruise teamThank you for the most amazing night. All our guests had the most enjoyable time. The food was great, entertainment was fantastic and your hospitality was outstanding. Thank you for making Roshan's 50th the most memorable event and experience of a lifetime. Well done for pulling off a great event for 155 people! Highly recommend Allan and his great team. Regards Padmi and Roshan
I cruised on Harbour Spirit for Australia Day 2020. It was a great experience. Everything was well organised and the vessel had everything we could ask for. Perfect positioning for all the events on the harbour, great entertainment (DJ) and tasty food and flowing drinks. Well done to all the crew! I would highly recommend this vessel for all Sydney harbour events.
This was one of our best Christmas work functions we have had. The entertainment was brilliant as they involved the people on the cruise. We had such a good laugh. The music and food was fantastic as well. Well done guys, definitely will be doing a Christmas Cruise with you again.
The Management, staff and food is nothing less then amazing. I can not fault anything at all. I recommend Sydney Harbourside Cruises to everyone. Whether it is a lunch or evening cruise you are choosing, it will always be a lot of fun and satisfaction is guaranteed. I held many shows on this boat and am extremely impressed all round. A.W.Phoenix Entertainers loves you all. You are the best.
Fantastic cruise experience. Tony, Allan and the crew really looked after everyone aboard. The food was fantastic, the complimentary drinks were Peroni etc. Tony took us around the harbour at a leisurely pace so we could take in the lights ! Everyone was enjoying themselves. Thanks guys and keep up the good work.
We had the best time. Alan and the staff were amazing, the food was great. It was great value for money. Sydney put on a great day weather wise and we just could not have asked for a better venue to hold my hubby's 50th. I would highly recommend and would definitely do it again.
Our company cruised with Harbourside cruises on last Friday for our Annual Xmas Party, we always go on a cruise this time of the year and this was the best by far!! The food was amazing, DJ was fantastic and the boat was absolutely awesome. The pricing is super competitive and the service by their events Manager Carmen is second to none and very personable. Do yourself a favour and book in with these guys!! You will not be disappointed!!
This is the second time I have cruised with Harbourside Cruises. First, a personal cruise where I charted the whole vessel, and last week, I took clients aboard as part of a Melbourne Cup cruise. A beautiful vessel with large amazing outdoor areas at the front and back, accompanied by excellent quality food, good service and a DJ as well. I will be back. Highly recommend.

Can't praise this company enough. Did a 4 hour harbour cruise for a special occaision with family & friends & Alan, Carmen, Tony [skipper] & crew couldn't have looked after us better. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves & even though the weather was inclement the cruise was a huge hit. I will certainly use them again if a harbour cruise is required so highly recommended.
Harbourside cruises hosted our 2018 Macchina Espresso, Christmas party and what a success.The vessel catered for our large group with large open spaces inside and out. Pick up from King Street Wharf was on time and efficient. We enjoyed the wonderful sunset whilst traveling around Sydney's many landmarks including the Opera House, Harbour Bridge, Luna Park etc.Our seafood buffet was delicious. Providing a very large menu range to cater for everyone's needs.The friendly staff worked exceptionally hard greeting guests, serving drinks (we had a drinks package) and food for the duration of the trip. We had very comfortable seating.The DJ was great and kept the party feel going all night!We would like to thank Alan, Carmen and team for making our Christmas Party so enjoyable.
Thank you for the most enjoyable celebration of my husbands 60th. Everything was absolutely perfect, from the moment we booked the communication & help was excellent. The cruise itself outstanding, the food amazing & service none better. Price very reasonable, never imagined we could afford our own private charter! Cant wait for another excuse to book again. Highly recommend to anyone.
We had our belated work Christmas Party onboard with Sydney Harbour Cruises, and it was a great night. Our staff loved the food and entertainment. Excellent and professional service from all staff including Jad, Mario, Allan and Carmen. Would highly recommend the dinner cruise and certainly would do it again.
Thank you to Allan and the rest of the team on Harbourside Spirit, they made my birthday organisation effortless, giving me plenty of time to kick up my heels and celebrate with my guests, we all had a brilliant time and would recommend this cruise as the perfect party vessel, thanks to the wonderful food and DJ Stan playing the perfect tunes,
From the moment we arrived at the wharf to embark on the cruise staff were very attentive. The table settings and finger food was excellent, drinks were a reasonable price. All our friends had a fantastic day and there was plenty of room for them on the deck to take in the stunning view of the harbour. Would definitely book again through Harbourside Cruises. Thank you to the captain for reducing the rocking of the boat on such a windy day so we could dance!
Last week I participated in a Sydney Harbour cruise with Harbourside Cruises. It was a dinner cruise (evening) that was part of the program of a conference I was attending. Many of the conference delegates were from overseas (USA, Ireland, UK, Zambia, Pakistan, India, New Zealand). It was a fantastic evening. The service was exceptional. The buffet was excellent in terms of quality, variety and quantity. A real highlight for us was the entertainment. The music was fantastic. The DJ really knew his audience and his playlists were perfect. Well done to all involved. I recommend Harbourside Cruises to all visitors to Sydney.
Fantastic time on our afternoon/evening cruise with 105 guests to celebrate our anniversary & wedding. Allan & his whole team put in an amazing effort making organising our event easy and delivered an extraordinary cruise. All our guests commented about the great food & excellent service. The attention to detail by every staff member really made it special. We highly recommend them for any event you wish to hold. Thank you Allan, Tony, Xanthe, Stanley, Paulo & the whole team!
I have been an entertainer since 1998 as bornagainelvis & have booked many private charters.

We had a fantastic cruise on the Harbour Spirit!!! The crew were awesome, the food was exceptional and the atmosphere was fantastic! The booking process was made a very easy and we felt welcomed from the first conversation!!!Would definitely recommend them!Bella Management HQ
A fabulous day on Sydney Harbour for a friend's 60th birthday. The Harbour Spirit is a good sized boat. Very comfortable with room to move and decks forward & rear. Plenty of room to see the sights indoor or out without being crowded. Buffet lunch was delicious with a good variety of food to cater to all tastes. The Hawaiian themed entertainment was outstanding as was the DJ/MC. Staff were helpful & friendly. A great day.
Saturday 1st April, Sydney put on a perfect day, it was dry, cool and Sydney, well she really did shine through the night. Harbour Spirit had a few parties on board - a couple of birthdays and some smaller groups - we were one of those smaller groups. Allan, one of the owners, came around and was the perfect host. We were well looked after and the restaurant quality buffet was terrific. More than enough food and such variety catering for all tastes. Music, the young DJ was open to requests and had all the old favorites as well as the latest songs. Not too loud so we could understand ourselves as we talked over the great meal. The front deck has chairs and you could relax and soak in the Harbour view. Many great photo ops, Bridge, Darling Harbour, city lights - yep Sydney always puts on a fine show. Thoroughly recommend Harbourside Cruises, best experience, great people.
Great end-to-end service, from enquiry to boat day. Always open to accommodate into customer’s requirements. The boat day itself was fantastic, with high quality food & drinks and taking a route along tranquil waters and amazing views.I highly recommend Harbourside Cruises for your corporate or team events. Excellent quality-price ratio.

A massive thank you to Alan, Carmen and crew for a memorable birthday cruise. Restrictions forced us to ‘get a bigger boat’ and what a great find it was finding Harbourside Cruises. My every request was delivered, the food was great, the drinks were cold and DJ Dovy created a great atmosphere with his tunes. My guests had the best day and I am looking to book my next cruise already.
Harbourside Cruises, Without peers when it comes to sightseeing the great Sydney Harbour.From the moment we were helped on board,the food,service,cordiality were par excellence. Our booking from 2016 was kindly held over to 2017 because of a family illness,as a consequence our son became blind, the crew without exception went out of their way to help him. Do yourself a favour if you are considering any event on the Harbour ,these guy,s are the best.
Went last night and had a fantastic time, the food was good, the staff entertaining were friendly, the entertainers were funny, the DJ played a song when you requested it. My husband was worried about being stuck on a boat for 3 hours but after said it could have gone for at least another 45 min 😂 Overall we had a awesome night and I highly recommend going.
Highly recommend, just has my hens night over the weekend and all staff were so accomodating and such a blast to be around! The dj listened too all requests and played them all, food was amazing and the alcohol was just a big bonus ! The boat is beautiful and even for a cold night you couldn't miss the views on the outside deck ! I would definitely use them again ! 😀
A group of friends shared a lovely day with Harbourside cruises. The crew were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. Morning tea and buffet lunch were served providing a great variety of choices followed by dessert. We were impressed by this and made bookings for vivid and our travel club Christmas luncheon.
Highest recommendation for Harbourside Cruises for their New Years Eve Cruise. It was so, so much more than just experiencing the awesome fireworks live on the harbour. Our family and friends loved every moment - the main buffet and nibbles were delirious, the smooth way in cruised through the light parade, sailing under the Sydney Harbour Bridge and around the whole bay taking in the sites from a different perspective in daylight and then with the lights. Well done to the friendly staff, DJ for making it a very memorable experience!!
We hired out Harbourside Cruises for our mums 70th birthday last weekend. I have to say the most amazing experience for my whole family and guests especially for the birthday girl. The boat itself is beautifully decorated, spacious inside and out and sets a relaxing vibe. Allan and Carmen made the whole event easy to organise. Marissa and staff were absolute gems and helped run everything smoothly.From making a booking to the end of the event, it was all worth it and so thankful to everyone involved.The food was 100% delicious and service overall was above and beyond. DJ was awesome and set the mood from entrance, eating and dancing.I was referred to a photo/videographer by Carmen as well and he was very pro👌@Celio 'paparazzi'.I recommend this cruise for all events.Thankyou again for the experience Allan and Team cannot wait til the next one.Cheers. Suz
We recently had our work Christmas party on Harbourside Cruises, it was so amazing! The staff are all lovely and the food was the best buffet I've ever had on a harbour cruise. The booking process was also so easy and the team at Harbourside Cruises went out of there way to make sure we were happy with everything.
What an amazing cruise:) thank you Allan for making our birthday unforgettable. We had a great time, the food was great and your staff were very accommodating. the entertainment was really good and especially Mr DJ. And a huge thank you to Carmen for her outstanding service. Nothing was ever a problem and always found ways to please everyone. Once again Allan thank you for the experience I will definitely be revisiting and will not hesitate to recommend your cruises to all in the future.
We have done many cruises for our Christmas party and this was by far the best we have been on. The food drinks and entertainment were all exceptional and the staff went above and beyond. I would highly recommend this company for your next event. We will be back!!! thankyou very much Alan and team at Harbourside cruises
