We had the best afternoon sailing on the harbour, fanstastic crew and captain. We had lunch on board and it was really nice all you can eat pulled meats, salads, rolls as well as appetizers and yummy brownies for afters. We had a few beers (also as much as you wanted) which were bottled popular brands and ice cold and... More

We had a really poor experience with this company. They are very unorganised. The booking is done online and the confirmation was meant to take 24-48 hours...I had to call them 3 times to try and confirm the booking. It took a stern email a week later to ask what was happening before I finally got a confirmation and I... More

Purchased a Groupon for an afternoon cruise with open bar. Staff friendly, especially our hostess Daisy who regalled us with tales of Sydney's history. The sails went up but I think that was more for show as the engines were still used. Didn't matter though, the cruise was relaxing and it was nice being on Sydney's wonderful Harbour on a... More

We took the twilight cruise and were lucky enough to get clear blue sky! It was a nice trip with beautiful views of the harbour and the sunset and the skipper had amazing stories about the environment along the way!

This was value for money. Staff were great. We paid the extra $10 for the open bar talk about value. It was so nice sailing under the bridge. It's a nice way to see the harbour and because you are sailing you do get to enjoy it.

We did this trip in January 2015 and it was lovely. Relaxing, informative and beautiful scenery. The host was entertaining. Would highly recommend this trip.

Had a good fun arvo with the kids. The pirates were more than real enough for the kids and probably the missus and it was great fun darling around some beautiful and historical spots on the harbour. Definitely hunt down some discounted tickets with a bit of Google detective work.

The ship was just wonderful and the staff friendly and helpful. Brendon our host lots of fun. . We did the twilight dinner and drinks cruise on a Wednesday. Not many people so it was comfortable. Could find place just to yourself. I rated it four only on the cruise, ship ,staff and harbour views. The downside was the food.... More

If your looking for a way to spend an afternoon like us, we jumped onto the Tall ship cruise of Sydney harbour, we also took the drinks package and had a great time on board. Motored up the harbour and sailed back under the bridge, what a great feeling I would certainly recommend this trip to any locals or tourists.

This tour of Sydney Harbour was nice, but not exceptional. This tall ship was built in Norway and had led the tall ships into the harbour for the 1988 Sydney Bi-Centennial. The trip went past the Sydney Opera House on the south side of the harbour, then did a U-turn to the north side just past Garden Island. The sails... More
