Best way to experience boating in Sydney!
I've always wanted to boat around Sydney. Pacific boating is by far the best way to do it without having to commit to owning and mooring your own boat! They provide all the training you need until you are comfortable (I had fun during the lessons too). Using the boats are a breeze as you literally just walk on and walk off. With kids and weekend sport it would be so much harder to do if we had to clean and maintain our own boat. For those thinking of buying a boat, this is a great way to try it out before you make such a large commitment. ...The cost is also a fraction of what it would cost of owning one too. Another benefit is being able to take boats out in either Pittwater or Sydney Harbour. It would be tedious to do on your own boat.
Wonderful boating experience
I joined Pacific Boating 3 years ago, without any boating experience. They were so friendly, welcoming and patient. They taught us everything we needed to know from scratch. 3 years later, we are extremely comfortable on the boat, and have even gotten into sailing! The boats are beautiful and hassle-free, and we have learned and enjoyed our experience so much.
Has immeasurably added to our quality of life!
We’ve been w Pacifc Boating for about 5 years. Well-maintained boats & super friendly team (Sean, Deon, Rob, Cam are the best!). Previous novices now totally in love w the Pittwater!
This is the best way to go boating in Sydney. In addition to the 44' being the perfect entertainers boat, they are always clean, everything works, and they are very easy to drive. The training and support from Pacific Boating is great. I'm sure they have plenty of members but i always feel like they know me personally every time i call or arrive. Can't recommend this more highly to anyone considering buying a boat.
Hassle Free Boating
I've been a member for over 6 years and Pacific Boating offer a great option to get on the water without the burden of owning a boat. The step on step off service is a great way to explore some of Sydney's best waterways and beaches. Highly recommend the PB team.
A great way to enjoy boating
A great way to enjoy boating without the hassle. Before buying a boat I would recommend using Pacific Boatings's luxurious boats. It's fantastic to be able to jump on and off without the worry of needing to clean the boat and the guys are always there to help you.
The perfect way to enjoy boating - all the fun and none of the hassle
I joined 12 months ago with no power boat experience. The training is fantastic and meant I was confident from my very first cruise. The boats are always in top condition and the friendly team at PB is there to support you whenever you need them. Being able to access boats on Sydney harbour and Pittwater on the same membership is great. Why would you buy your own boat when you can walk on/walk off with PB?
Pacific Boating is THE best way to own a boat. No cleaning. No maintenance. No stress. It’s 100% boating fun. The boats are great and the team are amazing to deal with. It’s a life enhancing experience.
A wonderful introduction to boating on the harbour
We have all watched the boats on Sydney harbour cruise by and wish it was us. My daughter convinced me to get on the harbour and lucky for us we discovered Pacific Boating. Unlimited training ,walking on to a clean, fuelled and beautifully presented boat , and walking off with no concerns is the ultimate introduction to boating. There is hands down no better introduction and ongoing support than what this company provides. If you are contemplating enjoying the harbour do yourself a favour and follow this path , you wont be disappointed
The only way to start boating.
My wife and I joined Pacific Boating 10 months ago. We were both complete novices with no previous experience of boating. Everyone we met made us feel very welcome. After 3 days of training at each marina we were both able to pass our boating licence and take out the Pacific 44. Berthing was still a challenge, particularly when the wind speed came up late afternoon. The shore crew at Pittwater were more than happy to come out to meet us in the bay and berth the boat for us or give us instruction from the shore to help us berth. Additional refre...sher training is always available to help hone your skills if required. This has been the perfect introduction to boating for us and I can highly recommend it to anyone thinking of options for spare time on your hands.
5 Star Experience
Joined Pacific Boating about 18 months ago and can't speak highly enough of the team, the facilities and the boats. The whole experience is an absolute pleasure. I've enjoyed taking friends and family out for a day of relaxation, with the kids busy playing in the water and sand (and not on their screens!). Even when it's too cold for swimming the kids love rowing in the dinghy, playing on the sand and hanging out on the boat. Have also used the boat to entertain clients. The team are lovely, professional and always ready to help. One day out on the boat makes you feel like you've had a holiday. As a busy working mum I don't have the time or skills to maintain my own boat, this is the perfect alternative.
The best possible introduction to boating.
I joined Pacific boating about a year ago with very little experience. The 2 days of introduction training was perfect and they've thought through the whole experience quite well. The flexibility to take a boat out on either Sydney harbour or Pittwater is great, and the Pacific team are always available to lend a hand. I've had a number of unforgettable experiences including watching the new years' fireworks from farm cove and enjoying the spectacular Sydney skyline on the water after sunset. Looking forward to more time on the harbour!
Boating at its best!
My wife and I joined Pacific Boating a few months ago and we cannot rate the whole experience highly enough. If you told me before we joined that we would be able to berth a 20 ton boat in Rozelle I would have laughed, I have not skippered a tinnie before this. After 2 x intense days of training with PB we were confident enough to go out on the water and have fun armed with the knowledge to navigate safely around Pittwater and Sydney Harbour. What takes the experience to the next level is the team at PB, they cannot do enough to ensure that you...have the best experience. From detailed briefings about the weather, what spots on the water are best on the specific day, any refreshers that you might need and they are even happy to berth the boat for you if the weather is hairy. Any dramas while you are on the boat and they are only a phone call away! A team member is on the dock when you return to give you any guidance if needed to berth before they tie up the boat. Our expectations were very high and they have been exceeded! We really are blown away how hard the team at PB work to ensure that you have a great day on the boat and make you look forward to the next trip!
Pacific Boating the way to go
Recommend this membership highly. From the ease of booking to the informative trainings, to the ease to be able to contact the staff and let’s not forget the beautiful boats we get to use from 2 very convenient locations.

Hi Sholeh. Some of the pricing and details for membership is on our website as Altan suggests above but we do have a lot of membership options available which our team would be more than happy to go through with you. You can give us a call on 87651067 during business hours or if you prefer why not visit us at our display at this years Sydney boat show that commences at Darling Harbour on August 3. Thanks for your query.
How come four pages (2 to 5) of 5 star reviews came from reviewers who joined between Sept 22 and Sept 25 2012?
Indeed, and all have only ever made 1 review!
Absolutely totally obvious that it's Pacific Boating themselves - the reviews are very similar in addition to the joining date and just 1 review
It's an interesting question so I asked them. They periodically contact their membership base and ask them to provide a review and that's why they tend to come in clumps.
They now have over 250 members with 18 boats across 3 bases (Rose Bay, Cabarita & Pittwater).
If you are going to be cynical, at least ask a few questions before passing judgement. They have just celebrated 10 years so something must be working!!!
