Thank you for assisting me in organising the whole day especially for a last minute booking!
Chris was so lovely! He was an amazing host: made sure we knew all the rules, he was so friendly and got along with our group and brought us safely to our destination and back to Darling Harbour!
Seriously, the whole group enjoyed themselves yesterday on the Catalyst for Australia Day. It was a perfect size for us and so affordable for a public holiday. I would definitely recommend people to book a boat with Smart Cruisers Sydney! It was an experience we will never forget and one that makes us want to do it again in the future!
Amazing experience for my birthday, loved every minute of it!
The boat was amazing! Looked exactly like the photos. It accommodated our group very well and more.
Thanks Smart Cruiser Sydney, it was an enjoyable day. One that will be very memorable!
Boat was nice, in good condition and had plenty of room for 20 of us and our eskys. The captain was excellent!

Are you looking for something different to enjoy your day off? Or are you planning an intimate party with a few close friends? Or do you want to spend some precious time with that special someone? Whatever the occasion, what better way to spend it than on Catalyst, one of our popular charter boats at Sydney Catamaran Cruises.
With a maximum capacity of 20 guests, Catalyst is one of the most affordable option for a charter on Sydney Harbour. The boat has a range of features ensuring your experience out on the water is done in comfort.
Catalyst is the prefect answer to all your needs. Take a ride on this 34 ft motorised catamaran on a day out. Its superior design ensures that you get a smooth ride, no matter what the water condition. Get on board and feel the tang in the air, the breeze ruffling your hair and the awesome view. You can plan this as a family outing. Children love the open sky, clean air and the feel on the boat under their feet. Nets at the front will let them enjoy the spray from the sea. Why not plan a birthday party with a sea theme? Or get cousins and friends on board.
In fact, it is quite popular for small parties. With a capacity to hold up to 16 guests, the Catalyst is perfect for parties that are not too big. Its size and proportions make it perfect for a cosy get together with close friends. If the weather does not permit standing on deck and enjoying the breeze, relax in the indoor cabin with its plush seating. The sound system at the Catamaran is excellent, so get your dancing shoes. Just sit back, relax and enjoy the ride and we’ll do the rest!
There is also a barbecue on board. After all what can be better than a BBQ on the blue waters? You can get seafood fillet, sausage sizzle and more. If you reach early enough, do not forget the gourmet champagne breakfast. After all what better occasion to bring out the bubbly!
