Best Value of 90-minute Cruise
Weizhen_M, Apr 2024
Best experience and value for Sydney Harbour Sightseeing Cruises! It is 90 minutes cruise compared with the 60 minutes, and in the afternoon too.
Great Harbor Tour with amazing photo ops
Jeff_W, Apr 2024
The 2-hour tour was the perfect length to see the harbor sites and hear the history of the area. The tour guide did a great job of adding commentary about what we were seeing and to also stop the boat at key photo areas like the Opera House and the Bridge so that we could get great shots with our family and the scenery. Great tour!
Must do tour!

If you want to cruise Sydney Harbour, this is the one!

We did the morning cruise with the wonderful Judy as our narrator. The outstanding weather helped but anyway this was the best cruise! Wonderful commentary from Judy, both informative and witty. This cruise really brought Sydney Harbour to life. We looked at several cruise options before booking this one - if you just want a tour of the harbour without a meal or anything else, this is the one to book! Excellent value, very professional.
Wonderful Day on Sydney Harbour Tour
Bob_W, Apr 2024
We enjoyed the wonderful views and narration on our Sydney harbour tour. The tour operator went above and beyond by switching our morning tickets to afternoon tickets after our cruise ship arrived late. Plenty of seats on the boat both indoor and out. The host (John?) informed us about the history of Sydney. He sprinkled the stories old and new with just enough humour to keep everyone interested. Thank you!
