Had a terrible experience with Sydney Harbour Tall Ships and it's CEO David Warne. Booked a trip through these guys which ended up in a dispute, went to NSWCAT where Mr Warne was ordered to pay me approximately $2000 which he owed me. Warne agreed to pay.....surprise, surprise no cash forthcoming! Describes himself as an entrepreneur, however, I would describe... More

I took family to 3-hour Sydney Tall ship last October. Food onboard was average but the crew performance and demonstration of sail skills attracted kids a lot. In fact, my son can't stop climbing up and down the deck and begging to take over the helm - yes he was satisfied by the friendly captain and photo taken. So have... More

Sailed to Goat Island on the tall ship. Esther our guide on Goat Island was very entertaining, knew her history and gave an excellent tour of the island. The food and drink on the ship was very good and the crew were very friendly. I would recommend this tour whilst your in Sydney. Very enjoyable.

Booked onto the harbour lunch cruise and it was fantastic! The ship left around 13:30 and everyone was let through the gates and on board very quickly and without delay. The skipper gave a great introduction to the ship and what the plan was for the trip. He then handed over to the crew and the main host was fantastic.... More

Me and my partner went on the lunch cruise as a last minute booking. With the weather being so bad, we didn't really have anything else to do, so figured we may as well embrace it! Despite the bad weather we had a lovely time. My partner took part in the mast climb and thoroughly enjoyed it, whilst I preferred... More

We had the dinner cruise and overall I would not recommend it. The ship was nice but the food was really bad and the organization was also not optimal. The price is also much too high for what you get. I would not recommend the dinner cruise. Maybe you can go on the ship but do not pay for the... More

The experience should be amazing - beautiful harbour and a wonderful old sailing ship so why did we leave disappointed? It wasn't the lack of whales or the weather as the organisers have no control over either, it was just a lack of interest. Admittedly it was an overcast day and raining when we arrived early. We huddled under a... More

Although we were hesitant with the poor weather and some less than favourable reviews we had read prior, it turned out to be a lovely day. The crew were lovely and welcoming, our tour guide Brendan (I think his name was) was warm and personable and made his way around to everyone and have us a little trivia on the... More
