Self Drive Boat Hire

There is no better way to explore Sydney Harbour than on your own boat. Sydney Harbour is famous for its majestic views, secluded coves, waterfront mansions and of course the famous icons such as the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House.  To get out there and enjoy self drive boat hire you don’t even need a boat license as our five cruisers only go 8 knots. If you do have a boat license, a faster boat for hire is available with Power Arvor which will motor around quickly up to 20 knots, depending on number of passengers.

When you hire a boat, we will firstly take you through a detailed briefing and instructions to make sure that you are comfortable with the vessels and the rules of the harbour. We can point out the safe anchorage spots, interesting places to see, possible stopping points such as the fish markets and if you like – where the fish have been biting recently!

  • Brand new diesel Yanmar motors and outboard motors
  • New fish finders and Bluetooth stereos
  • Able to go 20 knots (35km/h) for boat licence holders
  • All boats are available for self drive hire, no licence required with maximum speed 10 knots
