Family and Kid Friendly Boat Hire in Sydney Harbour

Wave Line

What better way to get the family together and have an unforgettable day than by taking to the water and chartering your own private boat? Explore Sydney Harbour and get some real quality time with loved ones on board Karisma I.

At Karisma Cruises we know how to create the perfect Sydney Harbour experience. We put together this useful guide to family and kid friendly boat hire to help you plan the ideal day on the water.

Family and Kid Friendly Activities

Although being on a boat is no doubt exciting, kids do have a habit of getting bored very easily. Keep them occupied and give them plenty to do to ensure they make the most out of the experience. For instance, stop off at one of the many wharves in Sydney Harbour and explore the beautiful beaches on offer. Who doesn’t love the feeling of sand in their toes?!

From the safety of the boat, a great deal of sightseeing can take place. Not only do you get to avoid traffic and busy walkways, you get exclusive undisturbed views. While everyone clambers over each other on land to get a picture, you float by and get a unique take. Sydney Harbour is home to many iconic sights as well as stunning coves, so there will be plenty to keep kids busy looking for.

For the ultimate day on the Harbour, get your family and friends in the water! Karisma Cruises have a selection of fun inflatables, including an island raft, a lily pad, and a floating dock, guaranteed to get everyone laughing. Kids will love splashing about and cooling off on our inflatables.

Family and Kid Friendly Places to Visit

If you are planning on extending your day and visiting elsewhere once you’ve floated Sydney Harbour, there are many places to go. Darling Harbour, once industrial docks, is now a bustling area full of shops, restaurants, museums and entertainment such as the aquarium and Madame Tussauds. With so much option, there is plenty to keep kids and adults alike entertained.

The Royal Botanical Garden is ideal for families looking to escape the hustle and bustle of crowds, and instead want to relax in a green oasis. There are lots of plants to discover, and areas to let the kids run free, making it the perfect place to let off steam. The best part? Entry is free!

Food and Drink

Children can be notoriously fussy when it comes to food. That’s why many families favour making and bringing their own food on days out. At Karisma Cruises we gladly cater (literally) to a variety of demands. You are more than welcome to have a BYO day on board, supplying your own food and drink that you know everyone will love. There are many advantages to doing BYO when hiring a boat including price and guaranteed contentment.

However, if you are going all out and hiring a boat for your family, why not get our skilled on-board chefs to put something together for you? We have a range of cuisine options and choices to suit everyone; take a look at our menus. Treat yourself and take the stress of organising everything away with catering. We offer plenty so there will be something for everyone. Kids will enjoy the experience and you get to enjoy sitting back without worry.

Family Parties

Getting the family together and celebrating creates fond memories for all to look back on. Make the memories all the more special and throw a party on a boat! Whether you are celebrating a birthday or milestone anniversary, Karisma Cruises know how to put on a show. With a DJ, on board staff, a bar, and many other necessities, we can create the ultimate party.

We love to celebrate on board Karisma I and know how much guests enjoy the luxurious experience. The whole family will delight in being on the water, indulging to their heart’s content. Watch the kids dance away for hours while relatives catch up over a glass of bubbly. Request some disco classics and get everyone involved. Your boat party will not be great fun for the whole family, but it will create memories and heart-warming moments.
