The Ahoy Ball – 2019

Spend a spectacular evening cruising Sydney Harbour on the Royale, while swinging out against a backdrop of Sydney’s most famous landmarks, with fabulous vintage DJs to keep you dancing throughout the night.

After the great success of our inaugural Ahoy Ball in 2018, we just had to do it again. If you were there, you’ll want another trip around the harbour with your swing friends. If you missed it last time, be sure to get on board this year, and get Lost on the tropical seas.

The boat leaves 7:30pm SHARP (so don’t be late or you’ll miss the boat, literally!), and then we’ll be cruising the night away until 10:30pm.
A night for dancing, hanging out and taking some cool selfies. Maybe there’ll be a Harbour Shim Sham! 🙂 It’s a perfect evening for your non-dancing friends as the Royale has plenty of chilled areas where you can just enjoy the sights of Sydney.

When: Saturday 16 November 2019, 7.15pm arrival for 7.30pm – 10.30pm
Boarding and docking at King St Wharf #8, Darling Harbour.
Cruising Sydney Harbour.
What: an evening swing dance cruise on The Royale.
