Sydney Party Boat for Hire



Harbourcat is the only party boat in Australia with a unique harbour spa. Being a party boat with no on board accommodation allows us to have the largest flat deck and undercover area, plus a massive trampoline area to enjoy the beautiful Sydney Harbour.

We have quickly become one of Sydney’s best party boats, having had 20,000 passengers in our 5 year old purpose built vessel!


Whether it is your 30th, 21st or 18th birthday, Christmas party, your sporting club events, or you just want a reason to enjoy yourselves on Sydney harbour, plan your next celebration on Harbourcat.

Design a unique cruise suited to your needs with 4 hour charters for up to 44 passengers. You can have the option to BYO all food and drinks with you on board, or leave it up to us and add our fully catered and beverage packages for an additional cost per person.


Harbourcat is perfect for family gatherings and parties, with the ability to take wheelchairs and prams on board unlike other vessels on the harbour. Harbourcat has been specially built to be able to pull up right onto the beach and is great for beach hopping and exploring some of Sydney Harbour’s secluded beaches.

We also have the ability to do coastal cruising along some of Sydney’s most famous beaches, such as Palm Beach, Manly and Bondi.


Harbourcat is the only boat 100% custom-built for events having the largest oversized covered areas ensuring guests comfort whatever the weather.

We have the biggest engines of all the catamarans, making us extremely safe and minimising travel time so you can have more time to explore all of the harbour. Harbourcat is based in Manly, but we are willing to travel into the Parramatta River and all the way up to Putney (on request).

I recommend any tourist or resident of Sydney to do this cruise!

We had an incredible experience on Christmas Eve on the boat. Colin took great care of us. We boated around the harbour to check out the sights and had a good amount of time swimming around the harbour. I recommend any tourist or resident of Sydney to do this cruise!

Saw more wildlife than Alaska!

Would recommend this to anyone wanting a fab way to see our coast. We saw more wildlife ( whales, dolphins, seals ,albatross) in 2 hours than we saw in 7 days in Alaska. Skipper Colin was fab and endeavored to make our experience as good as it gets.

Whale-watching & coastal tour

The entire experience was amazing.

We went on the whale watching cruise on Sunday morning from Manly and it was exceptional! The entire experience was amazing. Colin is a great skipper and quickly located a whale which we watched for a while. We then explored the marine réservé at Shelly beach after sailing along the beach from Queenscliff to Manly. I’ve lived in Manly for a long time and it’s the best thing I’ve done here!
The boat is perfect – clean and well designed with cover overhead that can be open in summer. There are multiple spaces to eat or hang out, with good seating and great areas to relax. The sound system is excellent and Colin is a fabulous host.

The service and communication from start to finish was fantastic!

My wife and I hired the Harbour Cat with Colin and Denise to celebrate our wedding weekend with our friends and loved ones from interstate and overseas and we were not disappointed.
The service and communication from start to finish was fantastic and Colin really catered the day to what we wanted to do, show Sydney in all its glory!
We will be back!

The Absolutely Best Way To See Sydney Harbour!

The Absolutely Best Way To See Sydney Harbour! What a fantastic guy Colin from HarbourCat is. He built the vessel, and it is a fantastic party boat. We had a group of 20 for a 4 hour cruise – the boat can hold double that. It was great, tour of harbour, then stop for lunch and swimming. I cannot recommend it highly enough. Perfect day out. Get a group together and all pitch in, it is not even very expensive if you do it that way – would be less than a commercial whale watching cruise for example where you are lumped in with hundreds of people. And Colin does what you want him to do – whale watching, swimming, tour of harbour, whatever you want!

Great value for money

We used Harbourcat for an evening cruise to celebrate my 25th Birthday and could not recommend them highly enough! Col is a fantastic skipper and so incredibly accommodating. The boat is spacious and clean, and the trampoline out the front is such fun time! Great value for money as well! We will definitely be back for another event with Harbourcat! Thanks for an incredible night Col!
