Sydney Yacht Charter
A yacht charter around the Australian city of Sydney offers fantastic panoramas from the yacht and an exciting playground on land. Blessed with a balmy climate and (supposedly) 300 days of sunshine a year, Sydney is a great place to vacation. To either side, it boasts beautiful wild and rugged beaches, and the city itself is a beautiful blend of old and new, culture with a party-hard scene, and geographical splendor as soon as you head out of the city. Starting with the city, Sydney Harbour is the place to sail in to –it is one of the most awe-inspiring sail ins, in the world. You will glide under the Sydney Harbour Bridgeand through to see the Opera House –two of the city’s most iconic sites. On your way in you may be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the whales that hangout in the approach, or maybe even the dolphins that playfully jump in and out of the waters. Once on dry land explore the famous regions of Manly or Bondi, dine in upscale restaurants, head out to the theatre or just admire the views from the yacht. In the northern regions of Sydney sail up to the Royal Prince Albert Yacht Club –one of the most prestigious yacht clubs in Australia –the beaches in this area are raw and wild and worth making a stop at. To the south you have many secluded bays included Batemans Bay, which is a moon shaped bay, perfect for spending sometime on a deserted beach. For outdoor enthusiasts, leave the yacht for the day and head out into the Blue Mountains, about an hours drive west of Sydney – it is easy to get a chauffeur driven car to take you to all of the sites that offer hiking trails.Of course surfing is a big attraction here too and inner city, Bondi beach seems to be a favorite spot.
