We had a wonderful time on our cruise for our wedding! The staff couldn't be more helpful and friendly, especially Snita, she was wonderful and great with the kids! :) The standard of food was excellent and everyone thoroughly enjoyed everything that was served. The staff were all very attentive to our needs which made our day even better as everything ran so smoothly. We would have no hesitation in recommending captain cook cruises to our friends and family in the future.

Thank you so much Emma for your kind words. Congratulations to you both!

4 hr rental for up to 20 people (they have many options). Friendly staff, good food, we didn’t bring decorations so if you want they will decorate boat with things you bring to them but basics like chairs, table cloths etc all covered. They have music set up, but if you need it from your phone verify connections they need prior to coming. Although I had a playlist we could play from the iPhone due to proper wires needed. They have many songs already loaded and karaoke on board which was fun for everyone. We had a casual boat but it was perfect for our small ceremony.

Captain Cook Cruises  

Toni, Thank you for the note and for your feedback to the music connection. We are so pleased we could be part of your perfect day.

My friends and I went on a high tea cruise as part of my hen's and it was quite a treat! The staff are friendly and accommodating, the food and champagne is delicious and they can cater for many dietary requirements which is huge plus when you have coeliacs disease!

Captain Cook Cruises  

Justine so pleased you enjoyed our High tea at sea! Such a great way to celebrate with the girls for a few hours.

We hired a boat to transport guests from our Botanical Gardens ceremony to Walsh Bay. We cruised for two hours, taking in sights of Sydney Harbour, and staff onboard served champagne and kept the boat steady in the wind. My only minor gripe was arriving at the destination 15mins early.

Captain Cook Cruises  

Linda, We are so pleased we could be part of your perfect day showcasing our beautiful harbour to your guests. Thank you for the note and for your feedback.

Cruised Sydney Harbour for our reception on Sydney Crystal - a great 'private yacht' style boat, perfect for our cocktail function. And the weather was perfect!
