Dear Tony

I would like to thank you for one of the most wonderful and romantic nights that Helen and I have ever experienced. You made our 5th Wedding Anniversary the most unforgettable night, which will be hard to top. The experience blew us both away and the occasion was made even more special by your hospitality, which was nothing less then amazing.

From the initial contact with you I was made to feel welcome and your assurances made me feel comfortable that I had made an excellent decision. When we boarded your yacht you made us feel extremely welcome with your friendliness, and at ease with our unfamiliar surroundings. The service we received on board was absolutely brilliant.

From the Champagne and cheeses when we boarded to the beautiful seafood feast, the night was most spectacular.

The scenery on the harbour was stunning. Your choice of locations for our overnight stay was perfect, making us feel completely comfortable.

Overall, the experience was absolutely marvellous and made our special occasion even more spectacular. I will be highly recommending your services to anyone that is looking for a romantic surprise for their loved one.

Thank you Tony for a brilliant romantic getaway.



Hi Tony,

Once again I would to extend my gratitude toward you for contributing to the wonderful and memorable weekend that Trace and I experienced. I can never thank you enough for all of your help.

Many Thanks



I would like to recommend Tony and Australian Spirit Sailing to anyone looking for a unique way to experience Sydney Harbour.

I booked a Romantic overnight package as a surprise for my partner’s 30th Birthday in October this year.

Tony was really helpful, giving lots of options and helping to plan the surprise, just the way I wanted it. He even arranged to pick up our overnight bag before the charter to make it an even bigger surprise for Ian.

Unfortunately, the day we booked the weather wasn’t so good. Tony was in touch with me all day planning for every contingency. I certainly felt like I was in good hands.

Once we boarded at a location I chose, we were greeted with champagne and cheeses. After a leisurely motor under the bridge, we moored and were served a feast of fresh prawns and oysters, while Tony prepared baked barramundi. Once that was served, with salad and fresh bread rolls Tony left us for the night. I have never experienced anything as romantic as being alone on a yacht in the harbour. It was just fantastic.

After breakfast in the morning, Tony returned and we were able to get a bit of sailing in. Ian really enjoyed this because he was able to get hands on experience, steering the yacht as well as working the ropes. Ian was really blown away and we both enjoyed ourselves a lot.

I can certainly recommend Australian Spirit Sailing to you. I think your loved one would absolutely love such a romantic surprise – I know I would if I hadn’t already thought of it.




Hi Tony,

I can’t thank you enough for our Sunrise Sail yesterday, we had a fantastic time aboard Katrina… Jeremy is still raving on about it!

We will be going to the UK for a short while but look forward to perhaps trying out another one of your sailing packages when we return in mid-January.

Once again thank you for a wonderful experience, I will definitely be recommending it to my friends!

Kind regards,

Hi Tony,

Quick email to thank you once again for an excellent New Years eve cruise.

Everyone enjoyed themselves and the kids had a great time.



The day went beautifully, I’ve no doubt the experience will be regaled fondly by each of us, whenever Sydney harbour is visited.

All the Best to You.


Hi Tony,

Just wanted to thank you for yesterday. By all accounts everyone had a fantastic time.

I am going to put your company on our PA venue list as an option for team events. We are always looking for different types of adventures.

Dear Tony,

Thank you for showing my parents such a wonderful time yesterday. As soon as they got off the boat they rang me to fill me in all the details. They were both amazed at being able to see the whales, and both took away very nice memories.

Thank you again

The Management team from Freehills had a fantastic time aboard Katrina….thanks for making the sailing trip enjoyable and memorable…I will recommend you to others in the future.

Thank you very much for an excellent evening of sailing…it was my first time sailing on such a craft and I had a great time. I look forward to team sailing again soon.

We had a great day on the harbour and thanks for the relaxed way you introduced us to sailing. I’ll definitely be in touch next time we are in Sydney.

It is my pleasure to be on board Katrina. Indeed, Saturday was a perfect day for sailing, not forgetting that this was my maiden voyage on Katrina. I really enjoyed it very much. Once again, thank you for your hospitality. I hope to be back on Katrina sometime in June.

We enjoyed the sailing on Saturday enormously. It was a great experience to be on the water in such a special location.. Katrina is a lovely yacht and we all found the skipper very entertaining!

In terms of customer feedback I really couldn’t fault the service and the effort you put in to ensure we had a good time. I will be back in touch when we return to Sydney.

As a gift for my 40th birthday, I was given a day out on the ‘Katrina’ with family and friends. It was the best birthday present and best birthday I have ever had. What can be better than good company, good food, a wonderful boat and the best views in the world!

Hi Tony,

Thanks for the awesome trip on Sunday!

Really enjoyed it! And I definitely come again in spring!


Dear Tony,

Just a little note to thank you for having tried so hard on Wednesday afternoon for us to see some whales. In fact it got us hooked so that we promised ourselves that we would come back and hope for even more next time, like a little whale tantrum with lots of splashing or something.

But we are hugely grateful for the extended trip, which allowed us the privilege to view those rare and beautiful mammals. a very very special moment in our lives for us. all the best

Dear Tony,

I want to thank you again.

We had an incredible day watching whales, an experience that I will never forget.

I hope I can come back to Sydney during my staying in Australia. I enclose to the present a pic of the beautiful an unforgetable day.

Warmest regards,

Dear Tony,

Just wanted to thank you for an amazing day out whale watching on Friday. It really was an amazing experience. He really thought it was a great present and we went on to have a great birthday weekend.

Please could you e-mail me the info’ about the whale behaviour?



Dear Tony,

It was great Tony, even in the relatively choppy conditions. It was so good to be that close to the whales. Becky and I have recommended you to a few colleagues at work.

Please could you e-mail me the info’ about the whale behaviour?!




I really enjoyed when I came, and have recommended it to numerous of my friends. It was a pleasure.

Anyway, happy to refer on because of the great experience.
