Some chicken on sqewers and rice. Overall if yoy get drunk its almost ok. Although I think ferry return trip to Manly and a nice restaurant would... More

Annual girls weekend in Sydney and thought we would treat ourselves to a harbour cruise. It was fantastic, we loved it. Crew were amazing, views to die for and the ship had so much character and glamour. Food was basic but yummy. Thank you guys & gals it was a great experience, even if I didnt get to the top... More

My wife and I took the 2 hour twilight canape dinner cruise on the Soren Larsen, and it is hard to be disappointed when you get exactly what is on the website We were 15 minutes late departing, apparently because of a cruise ship that had left 10 minutes before the Soren Larsen appeared at the wharf, and 10 minutes...

I've lived around Sydney Harbour for more than twenty years so I've seen it from most perspectives. A couple of years back I booked a twilight cruise with Tall Ships for an overseas guest and enjoyed it so much I now go out with visitors and friends several times a year. Last week was no exception the weather was not... More

We booked the Sydney Harbour afternoon tallship cruise experience with DiscoveryAustralia web portal. The overall process from purchase to cruise was very smooth. No hassle . It was awesome to try out climbing the mast . Amazing way to see beautiful Sydney harbour. Highly recommend to pre purchase the tickets before the sailing date.

Tall Ship Cruise on the Southern Swan. Very relaxing and most enjoyable. Crew aboard the ship was very friendly and easy to talk to. It was given to us as a gift which included casual canapes. We were also able to buy wine, beer and soft drinks on board. Some people on the cruise had purchased a light lunch and... More

We had a sensational experience on Sydney's beautiful harbour. Wam balmy evening set the mood with each moment getting better and better. Friendly informative crew, delicious wine and food. Lights from the city buildings and other boats enhanced the atmosphere. What an enchanting evening. Not to forget the enjoyment of being serenaded by the talented on board guitarist and chatting...

There is something about sailing on a Tall Ship on the worlds best looking harbour. You motor out, sail back under the bridge and return to your berth. A supremely relaxing way to spend lunch and drinks. Crew are international and add to the experience. Mast climbing also available for the foolish brave.
