Frequently Asked Questions

The Water Taxi Treasure Hunt is only available in Sydney Harbour. We can start from almost any harbourside location desirable, just let us know your plans. Please note that starting and/or finishing the activity in Manly may incur additional water taxi hire fees.

We tailor the roadblock activity sites to suit your start/finish location, group and timeframe. Should you have a special request for a particular activity or location just let us know and we will work with you to include this in the activity.

The Water Taxis are covered. If it’s only drizzling and you would still like to proceed outdoors, we will come along with emergency ponchos for your group to use. Should proceeding outdoors not be feasible or the harbour be too dangerous, we will supply a wet weather back up event; we simply need an indoor location to host this in. Usually the indoor location is your conference room or your office.
