Sound System for Music

We have a great Bose and Fusion sound system for you to connect your mobile via Bluetooth. Sound levels can be controlled — (1) on deck (2) main saloon (3) rear saloon. We recommend you charge your mobile and prepare your playlist prior to departure.

DJs or other entertainment

If you organise your own DJ, they must bring only a limited amount of equipment, speakers, amp, DJ deck system, plus their own extension leads, power boards, etc.

You may wish to contact companies to arrange:

  • Music artists
  • Wedding planners
  • Magicians
  • Comedians
  • Dancers
  • Ladies/Men for Bucks/Hens Party

However, your contacts need to know the number of guests attending, the size and facilities available on board. Best you ask them to contact us direct so they can arrange the event for preparation and setting up prior to picking up your guests. We may also be able to assist or arrange these or other entertainment options given notice.

Swimming Activities

The water temperature in Sydney allows plenty of opportunities to go swimming with shallow waters, beautiful beaches and quiet coves aplenty. BYO appropriate swimwear, towel and sunscreen.

For nervous guests, the SYDNEYSIDER can offer a sophisticated Shark Shield which can attach to the vessel. The long whip emits an electric current and diverts sharks away from the swimming group — it's the only shark preventative product recommended by Choice Magazine. We choose to make it available to our guests to improve safety.


You can talk to your guests using the wireless microphone.
