Wednesday 10 Feb was a perfect day for sailing but watching Sydney Harbour all afternoon and not a single tall ship sail was to be seen. What most people also didnt see was the crash Southern Swan had when colliding with the pier hard enough to cause significant damage to the ship and unknown damage to the pier. Looking closely...

We had a really nice evening on the ship. The crew is very engaging and entertaining. The ship itself is really nice and worth to take a look at. So many good views of the City! The drink package is only worth it, if you plan on having more than 5 (alcoholic) drinks. Food: Some finger food and pulled pork/beef/chicken.... More

Lovely old ship with good crew. We had some good historical commentary too. I had a chance to climb the mast which was great fun. Steady supply of food and drink for the whole trip too. Thoroughly enjoyed it!

We went on the Southern Ship tall ship on the Saturday prior to Australia Day. I had mixed feelings about doing this cruise as we had done another tour of Goat Island booked through Red Balloon and it was very disappointing so I expected a similar experience. The weather was cloudy but the seas were perfect for sailing. There was... More

We sailed on the Southern Swan on Australia Day and had the most fantastic day on the Harbour. The tall ships race was a highlight of the day, but watching the planes fly overhead also was amazing. To race down the harbour with the sails up and see the other 3 tall ships beside us with their sails up, was... More

Overall this was a very disappointing experience despite the positives already listed. I purcahsed this overnight tall ships experience through Groupon. Booking a night was difficult from the start, but we ultimately did get our preferred date after several emails and phone calls. We arrived ahead of schedule for our cruise, with our over overnight bags. Although i have researched... More

I as not sure what to expect but this was possibly the best two hours I have ever spent on the water. The champagne flowed, the food was fresh and tasty, the host knew sooooo much about the Harbour and the return trip under sail was fantastic.

Wow what a beautiful cruise and what a way to spend Australia Day evening! A Born and bred Aussie I had the great fortune to take a long standing Irish Australian citizen on this cruise around Sydney Harbour aboard an original Norwegian built tall ship crewed by an foreign young adventurers from around the world with Irish entertainers and a...
