Helpful and friendly staff. Wonderful experience, welcoming environment, great views, lots of room in the boat to move around, including upper and below decks. Would highly recommend anyone looking to explore the Sydney harbour.

Judy the commentator was knowledgeable, engaging and funny. She knows the history and geographical intrigues of local Sydney locations. The food was pefect with a choice of hot and cold dishes. Totally recommend it! Kudos again to Judy and her team!

The ticketing experience was straight forward however signage to the pontoon itself could be improved greatly. The onboard service was extremely good and the buffet lunch was superb. All in all, it was a relaxing and well thought out experience that I would highly recommend to everyone seeing the harbour either for the first time, or revisiting after many years. Extremely good value for money all around.
