I've been to Sydney plenty of times and have always done the ferries to see Sydney Harbour but not anymore! A few of us decided we wanted to be rich for a day so we rented a yacht with Eastsail. I sail in Port Phillip Bay (maybe not anymore!) so I was the captain. The boat was beautiful and was... More

I have hired East sail boats for a number of different occasions, corporate sailing events, private events and I have attended sailing courses with them. The first stand out thing about East Sail is the quality and maintenance of their boats, all boats are very well looked after and safety is paramount to the business. The office is efficient and...

Was really nice to sail around Sydney harbour and "race" other boats in our group. Unfortunately, our group didn't order the food and drink package. I would have thought complimentary bottled water would been provided onboard considering it was a 4-hour outing, but no such luck! It would have been nice for someone from EastSail to have mentioned this before... More

Our sail in Sydney Harbour was our first activity in Australia. It was such a fantastic beginning, all of our other activities were hard pressed to match the experience. Our skipper, George, was fantastic. None of us have ever sailed, so he made us comfortable and shared information about the Sydney sites as we navigated into the harbor, under the... More

My friend bought this as a present for my husband and myself. I know I am a bit spoilt but a few things were disappointing. The boat itself was very nice. The 2 hour drive around the harbour also beautiful. When the 2hrs finished I was waiting for the seafood platter chocolates and strawberries that were promised. We docked and... More

Our travel agent booked us on a cruise around Sydney harbour. OK we thought. Big boat. Other people. Typical harbour cruise. Right. Wrong. Arrived at rushcutters bay and found out that we were going to cruise on a sail boat. We had never sailed before. What a great experience. What a way to see Sydney harbour. And it ended up... More

We booked last minute and our Skipper George gave up his Good Friday afternoon to take us out for a few hours. What a truly fabulous experience and worth the expense. George was the perfect Skipper, used to teaching, he allowed the kids to get stuck in, always chilled and full of fun. Very knowledgeable, interesting and professional, keeping an... More

We hired a Dufour 36P for a staff day out and had the best time. The boat was virtually brand new and and perfectly set up for charter and very easy to sail.
