Pittwater Yacht Charter

Your Smart Yacht Charter Sydney Guide

There is no doubt Sydney harbour is one of the most beautiful waterways in the world.

It comprises 54 square kms of sheltered tidal water, with so many bays and inlets that it’s foreshores measure 245 km!

And thanks to recent measures to reduce pollution – the water is, for the most part, beautifully clear.

We have a luxury catamaran available for skippered charter on Sydney Harbour so you can kick back and relax while someone else does all the hard work…

No Yacht Charter in Sydney is complete without a cruise under the Harbour Bridge past Sydney Opera House.

The Opera House looks absolutely spectacular from the water. It looks different from every angle and the stunning cream colour of the ‘sails’ makes a fantastic contrast with the deep blue Australian sky and the sparkling water of the harbour.

If you choose a twilight charter you see the Opera House glinting in the evening sun and later lit up at night – a great combination.

As you head downstream away from the Opera House the Harbour opens up and you get some great views of the Sydney skyline.

The South and East shore of Sydney Harbour is lined with very expensive houses. Our skippers have great local knowledge of the area and will let you know who lives where and all about the latest multi-million dollar sale.

If the wind is blowing from the South or East and you want to stop for a sheltered swim and barbeque, Hermit Bay is a good option.

And for great fish and chips you can’t beat Doyles at Watson’s Bay – the food is fresh and delicious.

The North Shore of the harbour is very different to the South. Large parts of it are National Park and free from development.

Taylor’s Bay and Chowder Bay are a couple of lovely spots for lunch and a quiet swim. We often stop in Athol Bay underneath Taronga Zoo and get a great view back towards the Opera House and Bridge. We also often cruise all the way down to the heads of the harbour and looking out to sea. The gap between the heads is quite small you can see why Captain Cook sailed right past Sydney Harbour the first time.

Sometimes you can be really lucky and see humpback whales playing in this area – it’s a great spectacle.
