Get a great start to your evening with an unforgettable twilight cruise on Sydney Harbour.

Snack on a tasty dinner as your informative captain shares details about your ship and early Sydney, where the British colony was established in the 1700s. Admire the sight of old sandstone buildings as your ship sets out on Sydney Harbour, then enjoy magnificent twilight views of the city and its iconic structures as your ship passes Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House.

It was a very pleasant ride and the staff were awesome! The food was good and the warm brownie was divine! I have to say those young workers worked very hard and knew exactly what to do. They deserve a hand for making the cruise run so smoothly. At first I didn't think we were going to see a beautiful sunset but it was awesome!

Perfect cruise as the sun set behind Sydney harbour bridge
Rowland_W, Apr 2024
Great two hour cruise around Sydney harbour timed perfectly to sail back into the sun setting behind Sydney harbour bridge. Food was good and the crew great hosts. Definitely recommend
Pleasant way to spend the evening.
Patti_C, Apr 2024
Sailing and watching the sunset. One of the crew gave great commentary of what we were sailing past and the history.
So so Food
Donna_B, Mar 2024
The boat itself and the trip was wonderiful. I would have rated it a 5 but the food was not great. I watched a man spill part of his wine into the salad. It made me concerned about what else was in there. Lettuce soggy and they ran out of chicken. The food overall was not great. The toilets were over flowing. The trip itself was wonderful though. The gal who ran it was wonderful.
Amazing Views
Hugo_G, Mar 2024
Amazing experience, views were incredible! Food was good. Drinks were not free. Food quantity could be bbetter.
nice evening in the Harbor
Teresa_P, Mar 2024
This was a very nice experience on an actual sailboat. You can help lower and raise the sails. It did sprinkle abit, so prepare, though there was adequate protection from the rain. The food was good. They provided a salad, potato salad, butter chicken, a vegetarian curry and sticky rice. Desert was a warm just backed brownie. The crew was very friendly and informative about the harbor.
Really good trip
Mark_D, Mar 2024
The cruise and crew were fantastic. Food was good for a buffet on a working sailboat. Included drink was only water, but they had a good selection for purchase.

This tall ship was an unbeatable trip around Sydney Harbor. The crew was knowledgeable and entertaining. Ruth was a phenomenal host. My partner and I paid for the mast climb and it was a once in a lifetime experience. If you want to see Sydney Harbor, this is the way!!

Steve_H, Mar 2024
We had a lovely relaxing cruise on Sydney Harbour on this beautiful majestic ship , the crew were very friendly and welcoming putting us all at ease , the food provided was excellent and with the on board bar available it made the whole experience even better. Would definitely recommend this trip if anyone is visiting Sydney.
A great way to view the opera house
Jason_S, Feb 2024
We took our adult daughter with us and we all enjoyed the tall ship. Food was good. Crew was joyful. Highly recommend!
Great time
Herman_T, Feb 2024
Overall, we enjoyed the experience. We were on one of the more unique ships in the harbor, and it was fun to set the sales which they let us participate with. The tour guy was very informative and interactive. Great group of people in the crew were was boat food so don’t expect a lot but it was decent. Overall, it’s more about the experience than the actual food. It’s a fun time and you will see all of the bay and harbor.
Great experience to be one this large sail ship.
Andrew_L, Feb 2024
The people climbing up and down to crow's nest. The captain and crew very friendly and experienced. Fun.
An enjoyable sail
Joe_P, Feb 2024
Very enjoyable to travel the harbour under sail. Staff was very courteous and knowledgeable. Food was good.
Find a Different Alternative
Tina_M, Feb 2024
We booked the bigger boat in the fleet but we were told a few days before not enough people booked so we were being moved to a smaller boat. We decided to keep the reservation since we really didn’t have time to find an alternative. We should have cancelled! The boat was so small and the boat was FULL! One person on the tour even commented that she didn’t even feel safe since there were so many people on a smaller boat. The food served was pretty tasty. No complaints there. But be prepared to eat the food on your lap since there really isn’t a practical dining space. You can eat inside a little cabin but there is no moving air in that room so it’s too hot and stuffy to eat in there. Wouldn’t recommend!
Friendly staff but would skip
Nina_M, Jan 2024
Staff was very friendly and informative, However everything we saw on this tour you can see on the water taxi. There is no formal space to eat your dinner which is served on a paper plate. Boat is also very causal
Informative Sailing Adventure
Ram_M, Jan 2024
A calm, safe and informative sailing excursion with very delicious food you eat in the open air on the top deck. Staff shares the history and current points. Rustic sailing adventure worth every penny. It isn’t fine dining in air conditioning, but it is a nice sailing experience for much less money than others.
Great experience!
Dimitri_C, Jan 2024
Great views of the harbour, tasty bites, friendly crew. We loved the experience! Well maintained old sailing ship.
Amazing dinner cruise
phil_a, Jan 2024
The crew were so nice and knowledgeable. Felt safe and secure. The dinner was so nice it’s amazing what they can produce in such a small kitchen (sorry galley )
Nice time, wasn’t the romantic thing I was looking for however the views were amazing
Keith_S, Jan 2024
The views were amazing, staff were very friendly the food left a little to be desired, ran out early but it was a nice night.
