Pittwater Yacht Charters

Located about 22 km north of Sydney Harbour is the stunning Pittwater waterways. Sydney-siders have long appreciated this stunning bay, but it often overlooked by tourists and travelers. Eastcoast Sailing has a range of luxury vessels for yacht charter to enable you explore the beautiful bays and beaches, and enjoy fabulous yacht sailing.


Sailing to the Pittwater Icons

Nestled by extensive national parks, Pittwater is a large sheltered waterways, part of the broader Broken Bay. With the famous Newport Beach and Palm Beach to the east, and West Head and Hawkesbury river system to the West, it is a popular sailing experience. There are many beautiful bays, beaches, creeks, islands, rivers and nature reserves to explore.

Within Pittwater, there are several excellent beaches including The Basin and Great Mackerel beach. Sailing around Scotland Island is a must do, as you past West Head (nature park) to the west. Further north into Broken Bay is great sailing with good breezes around Lion Island, and further north to Pearl Beach, Patonga and Kilcare.

North West up the Hawkesbury is a broad expanse of water taking you to Brooklyn. Beyond Brooklyn the water system continues and eventually winds its way right up, to Wisemans Ferry but these places are beyond a day yacht charter.

South West up the Hawkesbury you can discover breath-taking private bays including Bay of Americas & Refuge Bay. Renown for the waterfall right onto the beach which is truly spectacular and only accessible by boat. (You can also find the special plaque commemorating the WWII special forces training site for the “Krate” boat & their adventures). Further upstream continues through the Kur-ing-gai National Park past Cottage Point (great restaurant for lunch) to Bobbin Head, or Coal and Candle Creek. Beyond Cottage Point is usually best under motor.


Pittwater Yacht Cruises

Eastcoast Sailing provides skippered yacht charter to enjoy this blue water haven. We can pick up you from several points including Church Point, or Royal Price Albert Yacht Club at Newport, and take you anywhere you desire, or to our favourite spots. For a half day sailing cruise, we recommend a sail around the Pittwater area taking in Scotland Island, the stunning water front homes, and a brisk sail around Lion Island. A swim followed by lunch and a wine at The Basin or Mackerel Beach is perfect. For a full day yacht charter, we can take in the above delights, as well, you can be one of the lucky few to cruise up to the secluded Refuge & Bay of Americas. A swim at Flint and Steel Bay in the afternoon is beautiful.
