  • Angela Brazao - Bed & Breakfast Experience - March 2022


    Hi guys

    I just want to thank you so much for a fantastic experience we had on Saturday 12/3/22.

    My partner Kevin had never sailed before and we had an amazing time and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.  

    I bought the experience for his birthday, he wanted to do it on our 2-year anniversary and it ended up being the night he proposed to me!

    Everything from the time of booking right through to being sailed back to shore on Sunday morning was hassle free.

    The food was great and the boat was amazing and the staff were so friendly.

    Thank you again for a memorable experience, that we will definitely do again.

  • : Greenstone SLT - Offsite Team Building Regatta - June 2021

    Everyone I spoke to on the day post the sailing and then when back in the office LOVED it.

    I was really nervous about how this would be received as we kept it a secret until they jumped off the water taxis, but everyone said it was such a great idea and they thoroughly enjoyed sailing on the harbour. They loved the banter between the skippers. Although got a little chilly towards the end, watching the sunset behind the bridge made it all worthwhile. The food was amazing and I know for those on my boat, not expected. The quality and presentation were really good.

    From me, a huge thankyou to Sydney By Sail for the service you provided throughout the entire booking process – you made everything so much easier!

    Ed, Josh and all the team,

    Thank you so much for an amazing experience. The incredible support we received from you in the lead-up, the friendly team of skippers you have available to you, the planning that must go on at your end and the fabulous yachts all combined to make this a memorable experience that will go down in BRG annals as one of the best!

    Having been with the BRG team for well over 3 years now, I know that these events create real and happy memories – they are shared moments that bring the team closer – and you have made that happen for us. Thank you!


  • Lara Spence - Overnight Stay on Sydney Harbour - June 2020

    “We had the most incredible time as a young family. An overnight experience we will remember for years to come. Watching our young girls “steer” and take in the views was a picture we will never forget. The experience was unique, laid-back and the team went out of their way to ensure our safety and comfort. We loved every minute of it. The yacht was spotless and we felt like rock-stars!”

  • Columbus capital - November 2019

    Thank you so much to you and your team for providing Columbus with such a wonderful experience! I know I had a fabulous time.

    I am the kind of person that likes to know what is happening, and to have things organised ahead of time. I felt that yesterday went

    seamlessly, and we were all able to enjoy ourselves, learn a bit about how to Yacht (I had a go at steering the yacht, and found it

    was much more challenging than what I expected), and have a fun team experience.

    I have spoken with a number of other staff and they have all said they had the best time!

    Thank you for sending through the photos. I would highly recommend Sydney By Sail to anyone looking for a fun sailing experience.

    Kind regards,

  • E.Santoso - Dufour 382 Charter - September 2019

    Thank you so much for the warm wishes!!

    We absolutely loved, LOVED having the yacht on Saturday. Weather was perfect, and watching the sunset from the boat was such a great experience. Our bridal party and the photo/cinematographer also thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Tade the skipper was great, we were running a bit late on the day but he was so calm and cool about it. He helped us time our arrival at Deckhouse perfectly for our sparkler entrance. 

    Would you also please pass on our thanks to the whole Sydney by sail team? You and everyone else have been so helpful from the beginning when we first inspected the yachts, and also throughout the booking process and selecting our boarding point. Thank you so much!!

  • Nathan Phillips

    A really excellent sail thank you, Josh was a great captain and boat was exceptional.

  • Andrew Ebbott

    The International Bareboat Skipper Sail course undertaken at Sydney by Sail was a very practical and informative course.  The course instructor was very friendly, knowledgeable and skilled. The administrative staff were friendly, accommodating and made the whole process very straight forward.  I would highly recommend Sydney by Sail and the course. 
  • Wendy Fraser

    Thanks Sydney by Sail for a wonderful sailing experience. Our group of 6 friends recently chartered the Dufour 412 for a birthday celebration. Alice and Tade were professional and respectful towards the vessel, the owner, and us. Over the 3 hours Tade, our skipper, was very accommodating and a joy to chat with on board. We enjoyed a quick swim off the back landing and just the right mix of hands-on sailing action vs relaxation. We also enjoyed beautiful platters of prawns, fruits and cheeses arranged by SBS. Easy.

  • Monique & Walter Verhelst

    We are extremely happy with the experience offered by the Sydney by Sail team.  A unique way to experience sydney and just perfect. A day of sailing with skipper Neil super fun and entertaining.

    Don,t hesitate to use us as a reference or ask for our reference with future clients.

    Best regards

  • Mitre 10 Trade - New Zealand - Silver Multi Race Regatta x 105 Pax - August 2016

    Thank you Sydney by Sail for creating such a memorable day for our group on the Sydney Harbour.

    As we took over 100 customers from New Zealand, this was a fantastic and unique activity to offer them. Everything was made very easy for us, especially with having to organising remotely, with everything taken care of including a delicious packed lunch, safety briefings, and most importantly - the regatta.

    We have had amazing feedback from all of our customers, and we will forward to working with you again next year.

    Many thanks

  • Andy Taylor - Skippered Yacht Charter - March 2017

    We recently chartered the Hunter 45 yacht from 'Sydney by Sail'. It was a very relaxing 4 hours sail around Sydney Harbour. The yacht was in excellent condition and catered for our party of 16 in comfort. Our skipper, Neill, was great and took time to show interested members of the party how the yacht works and gave us a chance to work the winches and steering. He was obviously very experienced, relaxed and friendly. We all had a great time. There's something special about being on the water and Sydney Harbour is just beautiful. I highly recommend the experience and 'Sydney By Sail' met all our expectations - cheers Andy.

  • Alister May

    I booked an overnight cruise for my partner and I for our anniversary and I am so glad I did so with Sydney By Sail. The Customer Service I had was exceptional. From the very start, I was supported and all my questions answered above and beyond the normal expectations. The support due to the bad weather and my fears of our cruise being cancelled were dealt with in the most professional way.

    Once we got to the base, we were met by our skipper who was wonderful. He was professional, showed us the ropes and made us feel very safe. The Breakfast that was provided was of amazing quality and the whole event was better than I could have asked for.

    10/10. I would definitely recommend this if you want a magical night mixed with a wonderful customer experience.
