Minimum guest numbers

Most of Free Spirit’s packages have a 8 or 10 person minimum.
If your guest numbers drop below the minimum numbers, the minimum spend for that package still applies.

Can I play music?

Yes, Free Spirit has a sound system you can connect your device to via AUX cord (we do have adapters for iPhones). This plays the music through out the boat.

Can I bring a DJ?

Free Spirit does not allow DJ’s onboard.

What is the shoe policy?

Free Spirit does not allow stiletto heels on board. Flats, thongs, runners, wedges etc are ok. We do advise against high heels, you are on a moving platform – it is best to be stable. We find most guests take off their shoes.

What if the weather is bad?

Free Spirit is an all weather boat and has a ample inside space, perfect for playing games. Her back deck is covered. You won’t know if it is raining!

Can I decorate the boat before?

Our hens boat cruises are very popular and we have multiple cruises going per day so there is no time for you to board earlier than your cruise start time. We do have decoration packages to can add to your cruise to make it more special and tailored to your group.

Can I bring my own topless waiter?

Yes, on these conditions: if you want him to serve drinks he needs to have a valid NSW RSA, he will need to bring this on the cruise to show to the crew. He is not allowed to consume alcohol. If you want him to eat you must pay for additional catering. You must let us know you are bringing a waiter and they count towards the maximum capacity e.g Free Spirit’s max capacity is 22 guests so you would only be able to have 21 guests plus the waiter.

Where does the cruise start/finish?

Our per person hens boat cruises start and finish at King Street Wharf in Darling Harbour. We have allocated time slots to use these wharves which will be advised 4 months prior to cruising or once the deposit is received which ever is later.

Can I make additional wharf stops?

Yes. Only your pick up and drop off at a city location are included within the package price. Any additional wharf stops during the cruise incur a $30 charge.

Can I choose other wharf locations?

Yes, travel surcharges apply to additional wharves and may effect your start/finish time. Full list of wharf locations here.

Can we go swimming?

Let the crew know you want swimming and they can advise the most suitable area depending on the day. Swimming is at the discretion of the captain. We do not provide towels.

Other Things To Note

Free Spirit has an on premise liquor license and all drinks are served by RSA staff. She has a strict no shots policy, no double shots for spirits and all spirits are to be consumed with a mixer e.g. not on the rocks or neat.

The bar closes 15 mins before the end of your cruise. You are not permitted to take any drinks off the boat.

Free Spirit is not a what we would call a party boat, if your wanting a boat to have a dance party or DJ or really let your hair down, we have other better suited boats to accommodate this. Free Spirit is for more formal events, those wanting a nice day/night out on the harbour. We want to match the boat to you so let us know what you are after and we can create your perfect hens boat cruise.

As per our terms and conditions, unruly, drunken, illegal or dangerous behaviour may, at the sole discretion of the skipper, result in the immediate ejection of any and all passengers at the nearest permissible wharf area (not limited to King Street Wharf) with no refund.
