  • Alister May

    I booked an overnight cruise for my partner and I for our anniversary and I am so glad I did so with Sydney By Sail. The Customer Service I had was exceptional. From the very start, I was supported and all my questions answered above and beyond the normal expectations. The support due to the bad weather and my fears of our cruise being cancelled were dealt with in the most professional way.

    Once we got to the base, we were met by our skipper who was wonderful. He was professional, showed us the ropes and made us feel very safe. The Breakfast that was provided was of amazing quality and the whole event was better than I could have asked for.

    10/10. I would definitely recommend this if you want a magical night mixed with a wonderful customer experience.

    ’It was the most glorious day to be on Sydney Harbour and all the families had a fantastic time on the beautiful boat.   They all enjoyed being out on the water and spending time with their families.  

    Sydney by Sail took good care of everyone and our Skipper was lovely.    We knew we were in good hands”

  • James Bridge - Burton Enterprises

    We have chartered on the Harbour many times and these guys are the best.

    Their boats are in good shape and the staff really helpful.

    One of my staff was a little worried about the windy conditions, but our skipper Ed really put her mind at rest and kept the boat well under control.

    Thanks Sydney By Sail, see you soon. Jimmy

    Sydney by Sail afforded I and a group of academic health economists from around the globe the sail of a lifetime.  Everyone had a great time and folks keep taking about the whole experience months after.  The staff were extremely knowledgeable and really went the extra mile to make sure sure special requests were handled promptly and effortlessly.  Definitely coming back to use their services when we are down under again.

    "Thanks to Ed, Matt and the team who provided a fantastic team building afternoon.

    Our marketing team are very competitive and the race to the finish line fired up the team with an adrenaline rush, unfortunately there is only 1 winner and that is Sydney by Sail for supplying us with a wonderful crew and the best yachts to sail

    Tthe wind was up and made the afternoon something to remember

    The location in Darling Harbour is an added bonus."

  • Twilight Regatta - Julie Hanlon , MACQUARIE

    "...everyone had a fantastic time, they all commented how much fun they had and Jeff was amazing as our skipper so would like to thank him for helping us to enjoy oursevles (and apologise that we couldn't be of more help - although one person in particular was very helpful having had previous sailing experience, we were very grateful!)

    But it turned out to be a perfect day and we all enjoyed it a lot - literally couldn't have asked for a better day (which is lucky considering the weather lately).

    So thank you to you and your team for helping to create a fun and memorable day for us
