Boat parties in Sydney can be great fun as there are so many options for on-board entertainment. Choosing a vessel is easy as there are boats designed to cater for almost any occasion from corporate charter cruises to the wild party boat hire Sydney harbour is now famous for. You can plan for everything well in advance, leaving nothing to chance except for one element that can ruin a boat party in minutes.
When planning a party aboard a cruise boat, check the weather forecast for Sydney more frequently as the event date gets closer. Tides and other offshore conditions can change fast and catch party goers unprepared. Ask the management if all your guests can fit comfortably below deck if the weather should turn against you. Can everyone be accommodated inside and be comfortable? Or will it just kill the party mood and wreck a great night?
This is important as many boats chartered in Sydney, provide outdoor entertainment such as laser shooting, heated spa treatments, top deck VIP areas, firework displays and open-air dance floors.
Remember that the weather can have a big impact on your party almost anywhere, so be prepared.
First Impressions count so arrive nice and early so you can check the venue is looking clean. Stroll alone the pier and check for potential problems.
What is the arrival area like?
Remember that a party boat often docks at different piers and there are quite a few in Sydney so don’t expect to turn up and find it where you originally made your pre -rental inspection. Find out a few days in advance of the party where it will be sailing from. You can also request a different location to board the party boat on the big day if you feel it is inconveniently located for you or your guests. There will usually be a surcharge for moving the vessel.
