We enjoyed our Deluxe Harbour Cruise very much. It was our last day in Sydney and the night before we found out we would be the only passengers on the boat the next day. We were concerned that it might not be as much fun with just the two of use, but decided to go anayway. Ben, the captain and... More

We arrived in Sydney early in the morning on an overnight flight. Our Aussie friends had arranged for a midday cruise of the Sydney Harbour with Sea Sydney Cruises. The cruise was intended for a smaller group. In our case there were five other guests for a total of nine passengers plus two crew. This certainly contributed to an atmosphere... More

Hi Summer isn't Vivid by Water simply amazing? I had the privilege of taking the cruise with my family and friends last Saturday night and I thought it was amazing. Sydney under lights is glorious, the water show in Darling Harbour fun and whimsical and the Opera House the piece de resistence!! This is the first time Sea Sydney Cruises... More

The boat is not a huge tour boat, but smaller and allows for lots of interaction with the two crew members. This was great, as we had some wonderful conversations and were able to ask questions. We saw everything we were interested in seeing and more. The BBQ was excellent. The ship's captain had the anchor dropped, and he became... More

HI Joe Yes we do offer swimming and fishing plus we have the tender on the back of the boat for you to use. The crew should have mentioned this in their briefing at the start of the day and it is all available when you drop anchor for lunch. Nonetheless sounds like you thoroughly enjoyed your small group cruising... More

Spent an enjoyable afternoon on this luncheon harbour cruise. pick-up and drop off is at the Circular Quay opposite the Museum of Contemporary Art. Captain and second mate (tour guide) are both knowledgeable of the area and you get to see a great deal. We had a party of 10 on the day we went, which included our own group... More

Hi Glen Thank you for taking the time to review the cruise like a local tour. Sounds like you had a blast. I know $285 does seem expensive but when you consider you are cruising the most famous harbor in the world on a private 52 foot Motor Yacht with only 14 passengers it is not. We think of this...

Great cruise. Great way to kick back and enjoy the harbor and all of Sydney. Amazing city and area. Brett very knowledgable. Food and drink could have been provided earlier and been a bit better.

Thanks for your positive feedback and once again we are thrilled you loved our experience I have taken your comments about the food/drink service and getting it a little earlier. The reason we ask guests to wait 15 minutes or less before they get a drink is so we can conduct a safety briefing and also navigate out of Circular... More

If you do one thing in Sydney I would definitely recommend doing the Sea Sydney Cruise. It's lot of fun and extremely relaxing. I was only in Sydney for a few days so this was the best way to get away from the hustle and bustle and also to get some stunning shots of Sydney. The good was good and... More

Thanks for your feedback Kat. Cruising with Sea Sydney Cruises is a memorable experience - you really get to enjoy the harbour, see its beauty up close with the added benefit that you have space on board to enjoy yourself.
