Overview

Starship Aqua Sydney is a boat hire option that was made exclusively for harbour cruises designed to impress. With huge 3 meter high glass walls Starship Aqua allows 360 degree panoramic views of Sydney Harbour whether you are looking for the comfort of relaxing inside or making the most of the beautiful weather outside. Inside the main area is fully air conditioned so if you want to get out of the heat in the middle of summer you won't miss any of the scenery behind solid walls.

The open plan design allows for all types of harbour cruises from corporate events to weddings and birthdays. There is plenty of room for seated formal dining and if you want cocktail dining even more space is available for a larger crowd. The upper deck allows

A harbour cruise on the Starship Aqua is complimented but 5 star catering at quite reasonable prices as well as drinks packages that are very competitive. There is a huge selection of menus but most guests find the standard menus meet all of their requirements. As you would expect from a professional harbour cruise company the menus can be tailored to meet any requirements you have.

On some occasions and only on some days self catering can be arranged. If a self catering option is available a surcharge will apply on a per person basis. It is important to note that Sydney harbour cruises on Pontoon that self caterer must use gold licensed caterers. This is not negotiable and the caterers will need to be verified.

Boat hire on Starship Aqua Sydney guarantees a harbour cruise that is professional and memorable with the I's dotted and the T's crossed. Ask us about any special requirements you have and the staff are happy to do their best to accommodate.
