Holidays Afloat & Ripples
are located an hour north of Sydney at Brooklyn,
conveniently close to the M1 (F3) motorway.
Ideally located at the gateway to the Hawkesbury, it is a leisurely hour and a half cruise to the pristine waters of Kuring-gai Chase National Park. Alternatively you can cruise up the Hawkesbury to historic Wisemans Ferry, or head towards the serenity of Berowra Waters. You are spoilt for choice with our extensive cruising areas.
With the largest and widest range of houseboats, Holidays Afloat & Ripples will have the vessel that is just right. We have eight different types of vessels. Whether you're a couple, a family or a group of friends we have the choice.
If you are seeking a traditional houseboat, a modern cruiser or homecruiser, or if you’re on a budget or seeking luxury we’ll have the right vessel for you.
To put your mind at ease we will give you a personal briefing on board your vessel where we show you its full features and operation.
We take you on a short cruise to ensure you are comfortable in driving the vessel and aware of simple navigation rules. We even pilot the vessels in and out of our marina so you do not have to maneuver them in any tight spots. Our staff ensure that self drive is an easy and enjoyable experience, by personally taking the time to brief you.
Aside from our beautiful hire vessels, the biggest compliment we regularly receive concerns our staff. Friendly, helpful, they make it so easy…combine this with modern safety systems like GPS satellite navigation tracking and you will find Holidays Afloat & Ripples hard to fault.
Simply phone us to talk to our friendly staff or, better still, call in for a look and a chat. You can be assured you won’t be disappointed and you will understand why we say “all our lookers are bookers”!
