    Hi Sydney By Sail,

    I just wanted to feedback how fantastic our experience was for your whale watching day trip on saturday 16th.

  • Mitre 10 Trade - New Zealand - Silver Multi Race Regatta x 105 Pax - August 2015

    Thank you Sydney by Sail for creating such a memorable day for our group on the Sydney Harbour.

    As we took over 100 customers from New Zealand, this was a fantastic and unique activity to offer them. Everything was made very easy for us, especially with having to organising remotely, with everything taken care of including a delicious packed lunch, safety briefings, and most importantly - the regatta.


    We have had amazing feedback from all of our customers, and we will forward to working with you again next year.

    Many thanks

    Dear Sydney By Sail,

    I just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our Sail with your company on Sunday 7th June.

    My family and I had the most wonderful Sydney weather and a great day sailing. Clive was fantastic with the kids and let them steer the Yacht, which they loved! It will be an experience they will remember for a long time.

    Thank you and all the best,

  • Andy Taylor - Skippered Yacht Charter - March 2015

    We recently chartered the Hunter 45 yacht from 'Sydney by Sail'. It was a very relaxing 4 hours sail around Sydney Harbour. The yacht was in excellent condition and catered for our party of 16 in comfort. Our skipper, Neill, was great and took time to show interested members of the party how the yacht works and gave us a chance to work the winches and steering. He was obviously very experienced, relaxed and friendly. We all had a great time. There's something special about being on the water and Sydney Harbour is just beautiful. I highly recommend the experience and 'Sydney By Sail' met all our expectations - cheers Andy.

  • Alister May - Bed & Breakfast On Sea Package - DEcember 2014

    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.
