Maybe we should have been skeptical when our so called luxury yacht was filled with 16 people (rather than the advertised 12 maximum). Or maybe we should have been skeptical when the touted swimming/fishing opportunities never materialized. In any case the company failed to deliver in just about all respects during our 4 hour lunch cruise of the Sydney Harbor... More

We took the 2 hour cruise around the harbour this morning and are really pleased that we did. The crew were very friendly and the guide (Greg) was most informative. It was great to see all the houses/sites fom the harbour, a totally different perspective from walking and a fab way of getting some good photos. Tea/soft drinks and cakes... More

Hi Sue. Our morning tea cruise is becoming very popular because it's a lovely introduction to Sydney, the harbour and gets you up close to amazing sights. Its pretty impressive to cruise under the bridge or to sit in front of the Opera House on a magnificent motor yacht as you see the city of Sydney come alive for a... More

Our captain on the Calypso was french (married to an aussie) and the first mate was only two months on the job, but together, they put a nice boat ride around Sydney Harbour. We anchored and stopped for lunch in one of the many coves of Sydney Bay. We could of swam but the water was a little brisk. The... More

We spent 4 hours on Calypso for a trip around Sydnet harbour. this was really excellent and very informative. the crew were great and we had an excellent lunch on board. The trip was helped by the small number of passengers - 8 which gave us lots of space.

Hi Smith Our vessel is 52 feet in length and whilst we are in survey for up to 38 passengers we keep our groups small. This allows us to interact with our guests and showcase Sydney Harbour in a unique and very personalised way. It makes for a better travel experience for you too. Glad you had a beautiful day...

I booked this two hour cruise before leaving the UK and it proved an excellent choice. There was a small group only on our trip, all from the UK, and we were offered fruit juices and a selection of quality cakes as refreshments.

We had a lovely trip all round the harbour, just before new year, so it was pretty lively. The only downside was the guide, Polly. She spent far too much time telling us about her, her ex husband and their various exploits in Sydney. We just wanted to hear about the harbour and the city.

Thanks for your feedback as it allows us to continually improve our levels of service. Sounds like we hit the nail on the head with everything with the exception of our "too enthusiastic" host that day. Polly loves what she does and is super passionate and this shows in every aspect of her job. I have shared your feedback with... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon on beautiful Sydney Harbor. We had done a morning driving tour of Sydney and surrounding areas, and we re-visited alot of these same places in the afternoon, on the water, and it made an interesting contrast to see the same places from 2 different vantage points! The boat, Calypso, is comfortable for 4 couples. It was... More

Hi PK Sounds like your day on board Calypso was a real highlight of your trip. We often talk about the experience as being a 4 in 1 experience - great sight seeing, awesome lunch, chance for a swim and fish, plus the added benefit of a boat cruise! Seeing the city from the water is so impressive as you... More
