Imagine: it’s a beautiful day in Sydney and you’re behind the wheel of a speedboat, gliding through the world-famous harbour with the salty breeze on your face. Surrounded by iconic landmarks, it’s just you, your closest friends and a local guide who knows exactly where to find the coolest spots on Sydney’s downtown shores. Aye, captain - this is the ultimate tour for you if you really want to see Sydney like a local. In fact, I’m the only one in Sydney offering guided self-drive boat tours of the harbour. Forget about joining a huge tourist barge and listening to pre-recorded commentary. It’s much more fun to zip around on quick, agile boats with a small group, seeing unique spots in the harbour the big boats don’t even visit. Don’t worry if you have no experience or boating licence. Most of my guests have never driven a boat before - but after 5-10 minutes they are completely comfortable and able to navigate the harbour confidently. If you really want to discover all the fascinating stories Sydney Harbour has to offer, this trip provides you with the best value. (When you compare this tour with our two hour option and factor in time for your safety briefing and preparation, you’ll get nearly twice as much time on the water. That’s twice the sights, twice the stories and twice the fun - for only 30% more.)
Hi, I’m Dirk. When I moved here from Germany in 2013, I fell in love with Sydney Harbour. Of course, I haven’t seen every harbour in the world. But that being said... I can’t imagine one more spectacular than this one. When I arrived here, I got myself a kayak and spent days exploring every nook and cranny of the harbour. I realized just how special this location is and how much I wanted to share it with visitors. With more than 25 years of experience on the water with sail and motor boats, you’ll be in safe hands with me guiding the tour. I know every corner of Sydney Harbour and I can’t wait to show you my favorite spots. Plus, I’ll tell you plenty of tidbits and stories most tourists miss out on hearing. I’m looking forward to spending a beautiful day out on the water, sharing my love for Sydney with you aboard my speedboats.
