At Sy Dolphin Electrical we are all about keeping you in the loop. There is nothing more frustrating than waiting around for a tradesman who never shows up. Where possible we will provide you with a date and scheduled timing when the booking is taken. If for any reason the scheduling needs to change our office admin staff will be in contact to make the adjustment. Should your requirements be more involved we will attend the property in advance to determine a scope of works prior to scheduling. While onsite our tradesmen will have access to onsite contact details should they have any questions. Where possible we will avoid a second visit but it may be necessary to order parts to finish the job. Your job will be completed in a time efficient and professional manner and we will always clean up after ourselves. Once complete an invoice will be issued via email providing you with details for online payment. If for any reason you are unsatisfied with the job please let us know as we rely on customer feedback to continually improve our service.

About Sy Dolphin
Yes, Sy Dolphin is actually his name, no abbreviation or even middle name necessary.
Born in Sydney, Sy lived on the Northern Beaches most of his life and relocated to Port Douglas in 2001 after a trip exploring Australia in a big red Nissan Patrol. He picked up work around town at the Treetops Bar (Ramada) and Mossman Sugar Mill so he could still fit in a mid-week round of golf.
Things got a little more serious when he promised his wife Amber, they could have a baby if he got a boat. In 2004 he struck out on his own and has since gained the well-earned reputation of being the Electrician you call when you want a quality and safe job done on time. Having promised himself he would keep his “City Smarts” and offer reliable and exceptional service to all his loyal customers he continues to live up to that.
When not climbing ladders, meeting with customers or instructing his staff Sy loves boating, camping and fishing, with a regular game of poker on the side and an overdose of Golf on weekends wherever possible.
About Amber Dolphin
Lucky enough to exchange her maiden name, Whittington, with Dolphin in 2003.
Born in Perth, Amber spend her childhood moving between Perth, Sydney and Brisbane. She met Sy while working as an Event Co-ordinator in Sydney and moved from the big smoke to Port Douglas in search of a better environment to bring up a family.
After working in Sydney for a company helping BHP host international guests at the Sydney 2000 Olympics, her new gig at Treetops (Ramada) as Wedding Co-ordinator was almost a walk in the park. (Give or take a Bridezilla or three.)
When Sy started his business, Amber took the admin support role keeping his paperwork in order. As the business expanded and their children grew her role became more involved and she now works full time playing an enormous game of “Schedule Tetris” with an extra few hats thrown in the ring.
Given the chance she reads voraciously, enjoys camping, hiking and horse riding in Far North Queensland’s beautiful paradise. Can be found at either CrossFit or up the bump track in the early hours and aspires to be a published author.

“If you need help in this district look no further than Sy, Amber and the team. Sy has just completed installing and commissioning some very high tech energy monitoring equipment in my holiday home.

“Sy and the team at Sy Dolphin Electrical are an efficient organised operation that have been a great support to our business. They acutely understand the pressures we are under when guests in our resort have an issue and we need the services of an electrician to fix this problem in a very timely manner. Whilst we understand we are not the only resort they look after with urgent guest needs, they are extremely good at allocating their resources so we can keep our guests happy. They have also been very helpful in recommending new technologies and product options as we transitioned across to newer more efficient power saving lighting solutions.”Murray WorthingtonHotel Manager Oaks Lagoons Port Douglas

Always our go to team for any electrical work.”Amanda and Michael O’BrienPort Douglas

“We recently had work done at our rental property, including upgrading existing lighting to LED and tired old fans to coastal rated (which look amazing), as well as installation of hard-wired smoke alarms and safety switches in the switchboard. As well as giving the house a good freshen up, it is now compliant with Australian Safety Standards and we feel confident putting on the rental market. We cannot rate high enough. Always there when we've needed work done at home or at our business, with a high standard of work, always going out of their way to give us the best advice, all topped with friendly service. With their consistently exceptional service, these guys make everything as easy as they can for us. Thank you SDE 🙂”Alison KleyngeldCo-Owner, With Sugar Port Douglas
