Wat je gaat doen

Imagine: it’s a beautiful day in Sydney and you’re behind the wheel of a speedboat, gliding through the world-famous harbour with the salty breeze on your face. Surrounded by iconic landmarks, it’s just you, your closest friends and a local guide who knows exactly where to find the coolest spots on Sydney’s downtown shores.

Aye, captain - this is the ultimate tour for you if you really want to see Sydney like a local. In fact, I’m the only one in Sydney offering guided self-drive boat tours of the harbour.

Forget about joining a huge tourist barge and listening to pre-recorded commentary. It’s much more fun to zip around on quick, agile boats with a small group, seeing unique spots in the harbour the big boats don’t even visit.

Don’t worry if you have no experience or boating licence. Most of my guests have never driven a boat before - but after 5-10 minutes they are completely comfortable and able to navigate the harbour confidently.

If you really want to discover all the fascinating stories Sydney Harbour has to offer, this trip provides you with the best value.

(When you compare this tour with our two hour option and factor in time for your safety briefing and preparation, you’ll get nearly twice as much time on the water. That’s twice the sights, twice the stories and twice the fun - for only 30% more.)
Other things to note
Before the start of the tour you will participate in a boat safety and operations briefing. Once training is completed you will be able to operate your own boat as you follow me through the harbour.

Hi, I’m Dirk.

When I moved here from Germany in 2013, I fell in love with Sydney Harbour. Of course, I haven’t seen every harbour in the world. But that being said... I can’t imagine one more spectacular than this one.

When I arrived here, I got myself a kayak and spent days exploring every nook and cranny of the harbour. I realized just how special this location is and how much I wanted to share it with visitors.

With more than 25 years of experience on the water with sail and motor boats, you’ll be in safe hands with me guiding the tour. I know every corner of Sydney Harbour and I can’t wait to show you my favorite spots. Plus, I’ll tell you plenty of tidbits and stories most tourists miss out on hearing.

I’m looking forward to spending a beautiful day out on the water, sharing my love for Sydney with you aboard my speedboats.

This was one of the best days I’ve had. What a treat. Part exhilarating part terrifying but that only added to the greatness of the day. My son, the lead foot, was the driver and he loved zipping over the waves. I did too tbh but don’t tell him haha. Such a caring host making sure we were safe the whole time. Never in my life after years of living in Sydney did I think my son and I would drive our own boat to every single one of the highlighted bay stops including a jaw dropping ride under the Harbour bridge. Worth every cent and we will be back!

This was such a fantastic experience! I purchased this as a surprise for my partner's birthday and we have already decided to do this again for friend's and family's birthdays! Dirk was a fantastic navigator and guided us all along the Sydney coastline, from Rose Bay, Point Piper, Darling Harbour, Lane Cove, Pyrmont and even under the Harbour Bridge. As someone who has grown up in Sydney, it was so much fun to be able to see Sydney from a different perspective on the water. The jet boat itself was very fast and easy to manouver. We had the best time and can't wait to do it again. Thank you, Dirk!

Great trip, quite exhilarating and scary at times. A lot of fun as there was only Dirk in his boat & our boat, so was a Super private tour :). Fabulous journey around the different bays within the harbour.
