Holidays Afloat houseboats are self drive boats, no boating licence is required, full personalised instructions are given prior to departure. We are located 1 hour from Sydneys CBD. All vessels are self contained, we cater for 2 people up to 10 people. We pride ourselves on the fact we are always updating our fleet and we are the ONLY company on the Hawkesbury River that have all environmentally friendly vessels. (No sewerage into the river).
