Best Ways to Celebrate the End of Lockdown in Sydney

At Karisma Cruises, we can’t think of any better way to draw a line under lockdown than throwing a special boat party on Sydney Harbour. Whether you’re just catching up with friends and family or marking a missed special event, we can craft the perfect package for your occasion. Our luxury catamarans will add a unique element to any gathering, ensuring your give your guests the gold standard.

Below, we suggest some great ways to celebrate the easing of restrictions on Sydney Harbour.

Casual Boat Trip and BBQ

What better way to catch up with friends than to charter a boat and have a sun-soaked day out on the harbour? Going for coffee with a pal is one thing, but reuniting with an action-packed boat trip around the most beautiful harbour in the world? To us, that says special.

Swim in the bays, relax on the sundeck, then enjoy a delicious BBQ as dusk begins to fall – all in the comfort of a private boat, away from the hectic Sydney beaches. This is a trip you and your friends will remember for a long time. And after the restrictions we’ve been living with, it’s time to make some memories!

Harbourside Spa Trip

The end of lockdown is exciting, but it can be a little stressful. Taking the time to look after yourself by booking a private spa boat trip is a great way to catch up with friends and family and enjoy a bit of indulgence too. Not all events have to be high-octane, action-packed, base pumping, heart thumping affairs. Instead, you can treat your guests to a relaxing harbourside pamper session, helping everyone feel restored and ready for whatever post-lockdown Sydney has to throw at them!

At Karisma Cruises, our luxury catamarans come with a 6 person spa, perfect for relaxing in style and enjoying some gorgeous Sydney sunsets. With a full hospitality team at your disposal, you can rest assured that your event will be seamlessly organised to the highest standard.

Formal Gathering with Live Music

When a lockdown lasts for nearly half a year, it’s inevitable that lots of special occasions get missed. From anniversaries to birthdays to proposals to corporate milestones, all sorts of events didn’t get the party they deserved at the time. Worse still, plenty of weddings and other formal events were postponed or even cancelled.

It’s better late than never! Bringing loved ones together for a formal gathering to mark a missed special event is a great way to catch up. And, choosing a private, luxury catamaran on Sydney Harbour as the venue is sure to make it extra special.

Karisma Cruises offer a range of party packages, perfect for all sorts of different occasions. Create a stylish event with live music, formal drinks, and canapés tailored to your budget. We can even dress and decorate our boats to suit your party theme, ensuring you enjoy a truly high class event.
