At Goodtime we don’t have 4, 5 or 6 boats, we don’t have beautiful imagery through stock shops, rather a honest down to earth family business providing you the level of service to make your event special. We are located in Cabarita – a 20 minute ferry ride from Darling Harbour. We have two vessels – The Goodtime a large 300 guest two level Catamaran with top and bottom deck bars, amenities and outdoor areas like no other vessel in its class. Another Catamaran sports yacht and holds 80 guests for more intimate occasions. Here at Goodtime Harbour Cruises,our family is part of our business. We claim to offer a affordable solution for your next venue where quality and service is not compromised. Please explore our web site and don’t hesitate to contact us by phone or email. You may be pleasantly surprised. Our name says it all – Goodtime Harbour Cruises.

What an absolute waste of money! The evening vivid cruise we went on was embarrassingly awful. They packed the boat like sardines, there wasn’t enough seats for everyone. The buffet food of frozen chicken and something that could resemble spring rolls and pasta was disgusting...More
