The onboard commentary was excellent, learned all sorts of interesting facts we would not have heard about by just going on one of the regular ferries that leave Circular Quay. Well worth the fare. Thanks to all the staff on board and on the dock. We would definitely recommend your tour.

Informative. Easy to get tickets. Tour needs to be a bit longer to go up around middle head and north harbour. Guide very friendly and helpful with information. Would recommend to others when visiting Sydney.

Loved this boat tour. Our favorite part was the staff. The crew was so very friendly and the tour guide was great. We really enjoyed his narration of the surrounding sights and historical information on Sydney as a whole. Excellent experience!

Beyond the tourist trail

Close your eyes and imagine the Sydney Harbour bathed in the warm glow of afternoon sun. The usual tourist bustle fades away as you step onto a sleek catamaran for your sightseeing cruise. Settle into a comfortable spot on the deck, a steaming cup of coffee warming your hands as the city skyline unfolds before you. The iconic Opera House gleams in the sunlight, gliding past the Harbour Bridge and sailing past bobbing sailboats

A moment of peace

This cruise is the best way to start on a calm note with friends and family. Even on the weekends, if you’d like to squeeze in a little quiet time, this cruise is the perfect fit for you. For an extra touch of indulgence, a delicious spread of Australian cheeses and charcuterie awaits (upgrade available!). Elevate this serene experience into a gourmet delight as you savor the flavors and soak in the sights.
