This is an all weather vessel. The charter would only be cancelled in the event of very extreme weather conditions, such as a cyclone.

It is fairly uncommon for passengers to suffer from seasickness on a harbour cruise. Should the water become choppy due to windy conditions, the skipper will cruise the more sheltered areas of the harbour. However, if a passenger does become unwell for any reason, we can arrange for them to disembark at the nearest wharf or by water taxi.

Our chef can accommodate most dietary requirements. However in extreme cases we recommend passengers arrange their own catering.

Children of any age are permitted on-board with parental supervision.

There are no restrictions with regards to a Sydney harbour cruise whilst pregnant. Just ensure you notify the chef of any dietary requirements.

Please refer to our full terms and conditions. See brochure for terms and conditions specific to this vessel

We do offer BYO catering on some vessels. Charges may apply. Please ask us to quote on suitable vessels for your event.

For safety reasons, intoxicated persons will not be permitted to board the yacht.
Substantial food must be provided alongside alcohol and our crew will check adequate food is brought for BYO charters.

Prestige Harbour Cruises can provide quotes on a selection of boats that match your function requirements and budget.
