7 Day charter itinerary – Sydney
Exclusive anchorages, protected swimming in beautiful bays and world-renowned restaurants with exquisite views.
DAY ONE – Iconic Views
Settle aboard at the 1919 heritage location of Jones Bay Wharf, and motor under the Sydney Harbour Bridge to Farm Cove, a small bay opposite the iconic Opera House, surrounded by Sydney’s Botanical Gardens. Lunch while taking in the spectacular view. You are minutes from the CBD on a tender ride! The hub of Sydney Harbour is Circular Quay, a ferry terminus situated next to the central business district. From here it is an easy walk to The Rocks, Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House. A VIP backstage tour of the Opera House will give you the best insights into the landmark, the controversies of its build and its deep meaning to the city, whilst a Bridge climb is sure to provide a good adrenaline rush!
In the late afternoon, cruise and watch the sunset show from the best vantage point on the harbour, Athol Bay, where we will spend the night at anchor.
DAY TWO – Eastern Beaches
A good option today is a stroll around Taronga Zoo, situated above our anchorage at Athol Bay. The zoo offers unbeatable views of Sydney over 21-hectares. When lunchtime comes, cruise to Doyle’s Restaurant on the beach at Watsons Bay for a spectacular seafood feast with views over the harbour and city. This afternoon, walk the stunning South Head coastal track. Rich in early settler and forgotten military history, Watsons Bay walk is home to one of Australia’s first lighthouses and it is there the Birrabirragal mob met the First Fleet. Bondi Beach being a short drive towards the North, why not go for a surfing lesson with one of Bondi’s famous lifeguards? Get ready for dinner and spread your wings to experience Sydney from the air. Sydney Seaplanes offer the best scenic flights. Land in the Pittwater waterways, and get set to take in the stunning view at Jonah’s: here the terrace balcony is perched on the cliffs of Whale Beach overlooking the Tasman Sea. Fly back to Rose Bay, and we will spend the night anchored in Vaucluse Bay surrounded by the historic resplendent homes.
DAY THREE – Middle Harbour
We may enjoy some deserved sunbathing and swimming today. After breakfast, depart Sydney Harbour through the Spit Bridge to Middle Harbour, and anchor at Sugarloaf Bay, known for its beautiful secluded anchorages. Relax surrounded by nature, protected from the wind – paddleboard, kayak or enjoy good fishing holes. Sail around to the unspoilt Bantry Bay for the evening.
DAY FOUR – Manly
Pass back through the Spit Bridge and anchor at Little Manly Cove. Enjoy a coffee in the laid-back beach town of Manly, then hike or mountain bike around the pristine bushland at North Head Nature Reserve. Manly is also a great place to try surfing, with good conditions year-round – an Australian experience not to be missed!
