Sydney Luxury Charters

Established over 25 years ago, Sydney Luxury Charters specializes in offering a variety of scenic and exciting water-based excursions on the local Sydney waterways. If you’re looking for a harbor cruise, big game fishing trip, sightseeing tour or even a unique marriage locality, the company’s M.V. ‘Yackatoon’ does it all. Departing out of the famous Sydney Harbour, this 50 foot Precision boat is dedicated to providing an intimate luxury experience, heavily customized to your own personal desires.

The Yackatoon’s harbour cruises include guiding the guests along a variety of Sydney’s prominent landmarks, where they can enjoy the panoramic views of the city skyline and its vast waterways. Throughout the summer and late fall, whale watching becomes another popular activity in the area, with about 6000 Humpback and Southern Right Whales migrating along the countries’ coastline. Other wildlife such as dolphins, seals, penguins and a variety of birds can frequently be spotted as well.

As for fishing, although Cairns may be notorious for the Grander Black Marlins congregating offshore, Sydney has a unique offering in its own right. A wide range of pelagics can be targeted as close as 10 nautical miles from the city centre, including the likes of Black, Blue and Striped Marlin, Dorado, Yellowfin Tuna, Wahoo, Albacore and others. The crew utilizes a variety of custom rods on board, crafted by famous rod designers Jack Erskine and Ian Miller, as well Penn International reels.

For those looking for a different type of fishing experience, private 4-hour harbour trips can also be arranged, usually limited to the eastern and northern sides of the harbour. Same goes for reef fishing trips, a 5-hour drifting excursions over the reefs outside Sydney heads.
