10 Reasons to Charter a Boat This Winter on the Hawkesbury River

Hawkesbury River, Pittwater , broken bay & sydney harbour

Winter is a magical time to explore the waterways of the Hawkesbury River, Pittwater, and Broken Bay. As the temperatures cool and the summer crowds disperse, these stunning locations transform into serene and picturesque havens, perfect for a peaceful boating adventure.

Here are the top reasons to consider chartering a boat this winter:

  1. Cost: We offer cheaper hourly off-season or shoulder season rates which can drop by hundreds of dollars per hour or charter.
  2. Time: There are also fewer restrictions around minimum hire durations, meaning you can cruise for as little as 2-3 hours if you prefer. Alternatively, spread your money further due to lower hourly rates.
  3. Space: While the waterways around the Hawkesbury, Pittwater and the Harbour  in peak summer can sometimes resemble peak hour with hundreds of boats, ferries, kayakers, etc., the winter months offer uninterrupted views and privacy in secluded bays that would be significantly busier in summer.
  4. Weather: Did you know that August in Sydney has the highest sunshine percentage of any other month and the period of June – September has the lowest average number of rainy days? This means that while the temperature may not be quite high enough for some to swim, the likelihood of rain is lower, and the harbour views can still be enjoyed year-round!
  5. The Days are Still Warm Enough to Catch Some Sun: Is there anything more delightful than feeling the warm sun on a crisp winter day? While the water may be too cold for swimming, there’s still ample sunshine to enjoy. Relax and bask in the sun on Bella Lacqua’s comfortable boats, equipped with sunbeds and inviting spaces perfect for lounging and unwinding.
  6. Adaptable Boat: Even if you choose a day with average weather, Bella Lacqua’s 77 ft Warren yacht is highly adaptable to all conditions. Its design ensures that it remains unaffected by rain or wind, featuring large indoor spaces and fold-down/wrap-around covers for an equally enjoyable experience regardless of the weather.
  7. Nature: Enjoy the colourful hues of the Hawkesbury River through autumn as the trees start to change and lose their leaves.
  8. Wildlife: The Hawkesbury River hosts a diverse range of wildlife. Marine life includes fish like bream, flathead, and snapper, as well as crabs, squid, and prawns. Bird species are abundant, with pelicans, cormorants, sea eagles, and fairy penguins frequently spotted. The surrounding national parks are home to land animals such as wallabies, koalas, and possums, along with various snakes, lizards, and frogs. This rich biodiversity makes the Hawkesbury River a prime location for nature enthusiasts and wildlife observers.
  9. Relaxation & Rejuvenation: Escape the winter blues and embrace the fresh air and tranquility of the Hawkesbury River. While cozy duvet days can lose their charm quickly, a winter boat charter offers a refreshing alternative. Enjoy a much-needed dose of vitamin D as you breathe in the crisp, clean air and take in the calm, serene surroundings. This rejuvenating experience provides a fresh perspective on life, helping you feel revitalised and ready to embrace the coming spring.
  10. Proximity to Major Waterways: The Hawkesbury River’s strategic location close to Pittwater, Broken Bay, and Sydney Harbour makes it an ideal starting point for your winter boating adventure. You can easily explore these iconic waterways, enjoying the diverse landscapes and unique attractions each has to offer, all within a short cruising distance from one another. This convenience allows you to maximise your time on the water and experience the best of what the region has to offer in a single trip.
