Sydney Yacht Hire: Sunday Family Cruise

Summer is well upon us and many families are enjoying the extra time they have together while the kids are on holidays. During the holidays and weekends, we’ve got a chance to spend time together in ways that go beyond watching TV on the couch. Living in Sydney means that good weather is abundant almost year round.  As such, the best family activities can take place outdoors, or even atop the sparkling blue waters of Sydney Harbour. Next time you’ve got a free Sunday morning, consider a Sydney Yacht Hire for a special treat for the family.


Ideas for Family Plans on a Sydney Yacht Hire

Whether it’s just a normal Sunday or a special event, booking a Yacht Hire in Sydney is a great way to bring your friends and family together. A few examples are:

A Family Reunion. Get everyone back together and take group photos out on the water with the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House as your backdrops.

Family Fun. Cruising or sailing on Sydney Harbour – what a great way for families to have fun together and create amazing memories.

Take the kids out. Take an opportunity to teach the kids a bit about Sydney Harbour from atop the water itself. This is a great way to keep them engaged whilst enjoying a morning out on the sea.

You don’t need a reason. Who said you need a reason to have a special day out? Show your family a great day that’s  totally different from the average Sunday breakfast at home. Pack your favourite food or let us cater for you.

What to bring for your Family’s Sydney Yacht Hire: 

Phone or Camera: You’ll definitely be getting some incredible backdrops and photo ops so make sure you’ve got your camera along and your phone charged up so you don’t miss any unique shots.

Sun protection: Bring sunscreen, hats, and clothing to cover up. Depending on the weather, you may need extra sun protection so no one goes home with a sunburn. Make sure you’ve got everything you need to get the most out of a beautiful day out on a yacht in the Sydney Harbour.

Food: You can either pack your own picnic basket, or let us do the catering for you. We’ve got catering options from BBQ, to finger food, to seafood and sushi platters. Check out the catering menu to figure out what suits your family. Make sure to let us know about any dietary requirements you may have! We’ll always try our best to accommodate you.

Change of clothing: Just in case anyone gets wet, or if the weather takes a turn, bring some extra clothing with you. We recommend a pair of pants and sleeves, as well as swimmers or warm weather clothing.

What are the Sydney Yacht Hire Options?

Eastcoast Sailing has an enormous fleet of skippered yachts that can be hired out on the Sydney Harbour. You can peruse our expansive list of Yacht hire options here, or get in touch with us to help you make a selection. Sydney Yacht Hires typically vary by the number of people who will be on board, how long you will be out on the water, what activities you are planning on doing, and whether you’re having a full catering provided.


If you and your family would like to participate in sailing the yachts, trimming the headsail, hauling the mainsail, and even steering the helm, we have a range of options for you as well. Some families want to jump right in to the sailing experience while others are happy to sit back and enjoy the cruise. You choose what works for you!
