Hiring a catamaran is a great option for so many reasons but the main one is affordability. We have catamaran hire options that can cost as little as $60 per person for a 4 hour cruise! As well as the affordability side of things catamarans have all the main amenities for the majority of occasions and events people have in mind when wanting a Sydney Harbour cruise experience. Catamarans are super stable, and feature on board toilets, seating and table areas, a galley for food prep and fridge, freezer and Esky. They will often have great sound systems on board and provide shelter in the main saloon is weather is bad and ample deck space for sun bathing if weather is good. Many catamarans are also sailing catamarans so you can add a little more excitement to your harbour cruise by getting the sails up turning the engines off and experiencing some fun sailing time.

What groups sizes do catamarans accommodate best?

The short answer is all! We have plenty of small catamarans to hire that typically fit up to 20 guests, perfect for birthdays, hens, bucks and other parties, or just for get-togethers. From there we have slightly larger catamarans that can accommodate up to 30 guests, at this capacity you will normally get the most affordable rates and they are just a bit more spacious. From there sizing just continues all the way up to our largest size catamaran that can fit up to 480 guests called My Way .

Catamaran Hire FAQ

What is the typical price for booking a catamaran on Sydney Harbour?

Securing a catamaran for your Sydney Harbour celebration is remarkably cost-effective. For a group of 20, reserving a catamaran with ample space for a delightful 4-hour cruise costs approximately $1,800. This breaks down to around $90 per person, and many prefer the renowned Champagne Lady. Compared to other activities in Sydney, this rate is fantastic. Subsequent pricing variations consider the boat's size, type, cruise duration, seasonal factors, weekday or weekend preferences, and catering options.

Will there be any hidden costs when booking my catamaran?

Rest assured, there are no concealed expenses or unexpected fees when booking with Ucruise Sydney, apart from a standard card processing fee. Upon visiting our website, you'll receive a quote estimate for an initial pricing overview. Our team then generates an official quote with a payment link for you to secure your catamaran without any surprises.

How long is an ideal duration to book a catamaran for?

Most catamaran parties are booked for 4 hours, providing an optimal timeframe to explore the harbour fully. While 4 hours is the popular choice, some groups opt for longer durations. With pleasant weather, time tends to fly, and guests often wish they had booked 5 or 6 hours.

What is the best time of day to book a catamaran party?

Typically, groups prefer to make the most of Sydney's weather by scheduling around midday, concluding at 4 pm for the common 4-hour choice. However, we also see groups booking later, around 3 pm or 4 pm, for a sunset cruise. This setup allows for continued celebrations back in the CBD for dinner and drinks around 7 pm or 8 pm.

How far in advance should I book my catamaran?

The ideal booking window depends on the time of year and day you prefer. Weekends, especially during the Summer season from September to March, fill up quickly. For weekend bookings during this period, we recommend securing your catamaran at least 2 months in advance. In the Winter season from April to August, a comfortable booking window is 4 weeks in advance.

Do you offer BYO options for catamaran parties?

Absolutely! Many catamarans in our portfolio offer BYO options. They come equipped with Eskys for drinks, spacious galleys for food storage, and onboard BBQs, especially on the catamarans favoured for parties. Crew members often assist with cooking, making your catamaran party experience memorable. If you choose BYO, consider boat-friendly options such as finger foods and canned/bottled beverages to avoid spills. For those wanting a hassle-free experience, many catamaran partners provide catering options with comprehensive menus.

Is it possible to decorate the catamaran for my party?

Yes, it's possible with select catamaran partners, and we can guide you on vessels that allow decorations. Typically, guests take charge of decorations, buying balloons and setting up before the party starts. Decorators would need to reach the marina where the catamaran is moored. Keep in mind that availability varies from boat to boat, and it may not be possible if the catamaran had a previous charter. When making inquiries, inform us, and we'll do our best to accommodate your decoration plans.

Is it possible to bring a DJ on board?

Some catamaran partners offer DJ booth and equipment hire for your own DJ, at an additional cost. The DJ counts as a passenger, so factor that into your guest list, adhering to safety regulations. DJ setups, like decorations, need to be arranged before the party start time. Approval is crucial; bringing DJ equipment to the pick-up wharf without prior approval may result in restrictions.

Do you offer any special catamaran party packages?

Absolutely! Throughout the year, we introduce catamaran party deals to enhance affordability. Keep an eye out for mid-week specials and Sunday discounts on select catamarans.

Is it possible to extend my catamaran party cruise on the day?

For certain catamarans in our collection, extending the cruise is possible. Catamarans like Elysium II, Champagne Lady, The Floating Lounge, and Sirocco provide this option if there are no subsequent bookings. Additional hours usually align with standard pricing, with occasional discounts for extended hours.

What happens if there is rain or bad weather on the day of my catamaran party?

Unfortunately, in case of rain, your catamaran party proceeds as planned. This is consistent with the policy of all boat hire agents in Sydney. While many catamarans have canopies or full enclosures for rain protection, it's advisable to check the weather beforehand. If you don't attend due to weather, 100% of your payment is forfeited. Postponements are only considered if weather conditions are deemed unsafe by maritime authorities, with no standard refund practice. Familiarize yourself with all our terms and conditions before confirming your booking.

Is there a planned route around Sydney Harbour or can one be suggested?

Our experienced skippers can take you on various routes based on weather and wind direction. The aim is a smooth sailing experience, especially if you plan to drop anchor, have a BBQ, and swim. While we have suggested routes, our team is open to accommodating specific locations you have in mind. Popular spots to anchor include Milk Beach or Athol Bay.

What would be your top catamaran recommendations for a group of around 20-30 people?

Without a doubt, Elysium II or Champagne Lady are ideal for a gathering of approximately 20-30 people. Catamarans offer stability on the water, ample capacities, excellent sound systems, Eskys, BBQ facilities, and spacious decks for sunbathing. Explore additional Catamaran hire options.

What would be your top catamaran recommendations for a group of more than 40 people?

For larger gatherings exceeding 40 people, you can go for something like Ali B that offers BYO, however when group sizes get large a fully catered option is common. Catering packages encompass both food and drink, with multiple options to accommodate various preferences. Some catamarans even feature a licensed bar on board for a well-rounded experience catering to all your guests.
