Sydney’s New Year’s Eve Fireworks display is said to be one of the best in the world! This year, Fitness Angels are offering 12 front row seats on the water, at the edge of Lavender Bay, where you will be able to sit back and relax in a kayak, away from the crowds, and watch the early evening harbour entertainment and 9pm fireworks display.

Where:
In a kayak, fitted with a luxury seat, in the front row of the anchored boats in Lavender Bay. (Our group will be anchored and linked together, so we can relax and enjoy the show!)

When:
We will meet in the corner of Lavender Bay, near the sandy beach at 7pm, so we can be fitted with life-jackets and be ready to hit the water in time for the 8pm Air Display. We will leisurely paddle towards the front of the anchored boats in Lavender Bay, where we will anchor ourselves as a group. Each kayak will be fitted with luxury seats for comfort, lights and glowsticks for visibility and a selection of food and drink. We will be back on shore by 9.45pm/10pm, so you’ll have plenty of time to head on to your next venue to see in the New Year!

So, to recap:
7pm - Meet for Life-jacket fitting and briefing
7.20pm - On the water
8pm - Air Display
8.30pm - Pylon Projections on Sydney Harbour Bridge
8.40pm - Acknowledgement of Country
8.45pm - Sydney Harbour Bridge Effect
9pm - Family Fireworks Display!
9.15pm - Harbour of Light Parade

Transport:
It is advisable to come by public transport due to parking restrictions. You will receive an official invite, so you can get past security and make it down to the harbour. Buses and trains all run to North Sydney. It’s then a short 10 minute walk down to the water.

Restrictions:
As you are “skippering a vessel” on the harbour, unfortunately you will have to be under 0.05 blood alcohol, while on the harbour, so I ask that you please refrain from drinking until after the paddle. On the bright side, you’ll remember more of the night and have less of a hangover the next day ;) we will be offering complimentary bubbles and beer, once we are back on shore.

I’d like to ask that everyone comes along to at least one Saturday morning “Kayak Skills” class, prior to heading out on New Years’ Eve. This will increase your confidence on the water and will allow you to enjoy the event so much more.

What’s included:
• 3 hours Kayak and Equipment Hire (including luxury seat, paddle, single kayak and life-jacket).
• A professional Guide for your safety.
• A selection of food and non-alcoholic drinks for on the water.
• Waterproof speakers, so the group can listen to the harbour entertainment.
• Complimentary bubbles and/or beer for after the paddle (onshore).
• Front row seat for one of the most spectacular fireworks displays in the world!
• Enough time to head on to another event for NYE!!

Cost:

The cost for this amazing, once in a lifetime, 3 hour paddle on the harbour is $129!
