General Admission Tickets (GA)

While we do not hold tables or seats for General Admission tickets in advance, there is plenty of seating available on all three levels and it is first come, first served.

You may still move around the ship with GA tickets.

Group Reservations: For bigger groups of six, eight, or ten people, we have a number of private tables available

  • Reservations for tables must be made as a group, not as individual tickets.
  • Please get in touch with us if the table you need for your party size is unavailable or sold out so we can make accommodations for your reservation.

Important Information

The two main decks of the three-level yacht Glass Island have music pre-programmed. For the safety of our customers, our top deck is subject to a legal capacity limit, much like other boats in the harbor. When we hit that threshold, we must halt entry until customers depart the top deck. Since they have paid for our booths on the top deck, guests waiting to go up with VIP wristbands are given preference in this case. We politely ask our guests to be patient since eventually, everyone will make it up to the upper deck. We will do our best to bring you upstairs as quickly as possible.

The guests will be given the choice to transfer to the middle deck (subject to availability) or change to another date if they reserve a table on the TOP DECK and the weather forecast indicates a high likelihood of rain. Unfortunately, if the middle deck is full, it might not be possible to shift all visitors there. If this is the case, we appreciate your understanding.


Take your Glass Island experience to a whole new level by booking a VIP Bottle Service package. We have a variety of bottle service packages available to provide you and your guests with the ultimate VIP experience. If you have any questions about booking VIP bottle service, email vip@glassisland.com.au.
