Make your own way to the historic Rocks district to board the historical tall ship for your 2- or 3-hour Sydney Harbour cruise.

Set sail and cruise around the harbor, enjoying clear views of Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney Opera House, heritage sandstone buildings, and the twinkling city skyline as it lights up for the evening. As you ply the harbor, your captain shares commentary on Sydney’s history, from the early 1800s when it was a new colony to becoming Australia’s largest and most international city. If you want to learn to sail, you can assist the crew with the sails and ropes—if not, simply relax and watch the sunset.

The 2-hour cruise (two departures) includes dinner, and has an optional upgrade to add unlimited beer and wine.
 The 3-hour Wine and Canapés cruise includes appetizers and unlimited beer, wine, and soft drinks, along with live acoustic music.

Amazing experience

An amazing experience sailing through the harbour on a beautiful Norwegian tall ship. Sipping our bottomless glasses of champagne, watching the sunset, Andrew, our host, was very informative and the staff entertaining. Definitively recommend this experience to any visitor.
