Client Reviews

A few nights ago I had my 40th on board the Element. My expectations were very high and I never thought they would be exceeded but they were! That night will go down as one of the greatest in my life. My friends and I had the most amazing evening. The food was incredible, the service was second to none. I couldn’t fault it one bit. Dealing with Marc and Debbie was amazing they always made sure I was happy with everything. Cooper was an AMAZING Captain my friends and I had so much fun with him and the crew like he was part of the celebrations! Thank you guys for a birthday I will never forget.

We had a wonderful Private Bucks party over the weekend. The organisation and inclusions were amazing. We were never left without a reply, given the best available rates in comparison to other cruises in Sydney. Very flexible with payment too. Had an awesome time!

After endless inquiries and trying to find the perfect boat, I stumbled upon Smart Cruiser, and couldn’t be happier!I requested for a quote from the website and received an email, I spoke with Marc directly about possible options, Marc has been so helpful throughout the whole process - one message away and I received prompt replies about any queries I had.We had an incredible experience overall and will definitely book with Smart Cruiser for future events again!

From the moment I first enquired until we stepped off the boat, everything was an absolute breeze.Marc was great to liaise with in terms of choosing which vessel suited our groups needs etc. It’s a tricky time during COVID but great to be able to still plan a great event like this.We were greeted by the friendly boat staff as soon as we arrived at the wharf, and cruised for three hours during sunset. The staff cooked all our food for us and made sure we had a great time.Couldn’t fault any moment. Would 100% recommend to anyone who wants a memorable trip on the water!

Was organising an office event and needed a boat in two weeks' time! Having spoken to Marc, one could see that he was super passionate about what he does. He was super helpful throughout the entire process, right till the last minute. Would highly recommend Smart Cruiser for anyone looking for an efficient service.

We booked Pearl through Marc and thoroughly recommend Smart Cruiser. Marc was really helpful right from the start, provided us with a great selection of boats to meet our requirements at a range of prices. We picked Pearl because of it's layout and capacity, and were very happy with that. The crew were fantastic and really helped make our day. Our guests, 19 of my daughter's friends, had a great day out and all smiles the whole afternoon!

We used Smart Sydney Cruiser to book a boat for a transfer to our wedding in March. They were absolutely amazing! The customer service was some of the best I have had in a while. Marc was really wonderful at getting back to me quickly and was really helpful in finding the right boat for us. we chose the Sun Seeker boat which was perfect for us. The Crew were really lovely and happy to help. I highly recommend their services and will definitely use them for our next boating adventure.

We had a wonderful trip – our skipper was great and we all had a lovely time. Nothing to improve except the sunshine! The skipper suggested a little cove out of the wind to do the barbeque, which was perfect. Loved the views and we got some lovely pictures of the team in front of all the landmarks.Booking with Marc could not have been easier. Really responsive - email replies are almost instantaneous!

Booked Cosmos II last weekend for a birthday party. Marc was so professional and efficient from the start in organising the event and would answer all your questions even on the weekends!!. The staff on the boat were amazing high quality 5 star service and to top it off the fireworks were just great. This has exceeded my expectations as well as all the guests on board.

We had the best time on the boat, and I cannot stress that enough. From the booking process right through to being on the boat, we had the most amazing experience and I will 100% be booking again/referring friends to smart cruiser. During our cruise the Skipper and staff were patient, professional and seriously fun. Handled a group of 30, 20 year golds really well and weren't fun sponges! 10/10 cant wait to book again.

Great experience when hosting a client boat party. Hired a catamaran for 20-30 people for a corporate event in Nov 2019 and had an amazing time. Thanks for the great customer service from Marc, Cyril and Augustina. The boat was beautiful, bbq and drinks were great. You made sure we thought of everything and we even got a great team picture with the harbour bridge in view.

This is second time Marc organized a harbour cruise for me and my guests, and after a great first experience couple of years ago for a corporate event, this one was for a personal occasion (birthday) and the team at Smart Cruiser once again overdelivered. Competitive prices, flexibility, responsiveness, clear communication... everything was done to take the pressure off my back and as the organizer of this event, I couldn't have asked for better advice or better service. Already looking forward to my 3rd experience with Marc and his team ! Highly recommended.

Having a great time on the water in Sydney Harbour with the gorgeous weather, iconic city backdrop, unbelievable choice of vessels, and amazing food & drink is the easy bit. Finding the right charter company to work with, made even all of the hard work organising this, just as easy and pleasurable. Justine and her team were immaculate and I look forward to working with them again in the future.

Celebrated by husband's 40th in Feb 2020.This was indeed the best 40th ever...had an amazing experience!! Totally loved it! Cyril and Margo were friendly, professional and helpful which enabled us to relax and thoroughly enjoy ourselves. The boat was super neat and clean, the music system was excellent, all the food was managed so well by Cyril and Margo. My guests were so excited and kept telling me it is the best B’day party they have ever attended. Have already recommended you guys to two of my friends. They should call you soon😊. Looking forward to coming onboard again in Summer!

Marc is an absolute asset to this industry. He went above and beyond to ensure all our requests were adhered to. Our clients had a fantastic day on board Prometheus and have been raving about it since. I could not speak more highly of Marc, his attention to detail, responsiveness to our requests and smoothness of the transaction leading up to, and on the day itself. Looking forward to another booking next year 🙂

Was a brilliant day out once again. Thank you for arranging and for making it a smooth day. No issues what so ever! Crew were amazing, and really great with not just getting us around on the harbour but also never saw an empty bowl of chips or platter of food as they just kept on top of it all!

Marc from Smart Cruiser was fantastic from the first-time I spoke with him over the phone. He helped me organise two yachts for my family, One World and the Element for NYE. He was always available to answer questions, gave accurate quotes and was such a pleasure to deal with! I would highly recommend Smart Cruiser as it connects with you some of the nicest, most professional yachts on Sydney harbour!
