The Ultimate Sydney NYE

April 29, 2021  By Sydney Charter Boat

How are you spending NYE this year? With the New Year just a few months away, time is running out to ensure you will celebrate in style. If you haven’t already booked a suitable venue or made definite plans, there’s still time! For anyone who is going to stay in Sydney for New Years Eve, a harbour location that gives an exceptional view of the fireworks is an absolute must. When you book tickets for our sensational NYE celebration, we promise a location that’s even better than waterside. Celebrate the start of 2020 by enjoying the fireworks whilst cruising in Sydney Harbour aboard our 90ft cruiser, Eclipse.

The best place to see the fireworks

Sydney’s world famous firework display illuminates the harbour bridge and with a blaze of light and colour. As a result, it is one of the most iconic NYE celebrations in the world. The culmination of an evening of exciting harbour events, being on the water ensures you will have a fantastic view of the display. The timing of our cruise enables you to see the entire NYE programme. Other highlights include: the fire tug water display; a smoking ceremony, performed by Gadigal elders; an air display; and the earlier family fireworks. When you buy Eclipse NYE Cruise tickets, we position ourselves so that you are able to gain excellent views of the festivities.

Why not be part of the celebrations?

Every year, a key part of the NYE celebrations at Sydney Harbour is the harbour of light parade. This is a chance for vessels sailing in the harbour to put on the glitz, entrancing spectators as they glide across the water, decorated with flashing, colour-changing lights. An awesome spectacle to witness, as a passenger on Eclipse you may well be taking part in the parade! Eclipse boat has been put forward to participate in the event and will hopefully be one of the vessels dressed in lights. And while at this stage we can’t promise Eclipse will be chosen, we have been selected consecutively in previous years. Therefore, we are very hopeful of continuing the status quo!

Dress to impress aboard a NYE Sydney cruise

A ticket for New Years Eve aboard Eclipse is a great excuse to get dressed up! Our NYE party is a glamorous occasion where guests can enjoy canapés and drinks as well as a delicious buffet later in the evening. With a DJ on one floor and live music on the other, there are plenty of chances to dance. Or, simply listen to the music, glass in hand whilst looking out across the water. NYE Sydney Eclipse style is a sophisticated, chic occasion which is also highly enjoyable. Experience the unique ambiance of the boat, along with the unforgettable Sydney Harbour NYE vibe. Bringing in the New Year aboard a harbour cruise is an unmissable opportunity.
