We purchased discount tickets online. We travelled on board the Soren Larsen (a Scandinavian brigantine vessel) - unfortunately motoring the whole way with no time actually under sail. Guide Brendan was very personable, knowledgeable, and obviously very passionate about the history of the area. Although I enjoyed the general introduction to Goat Island I would have appreciated a little more... More

The tall ships have all the ingrediants to be great but let themselves down. The tall ship is fantastic, the harbour is beautiful, the staff are welcoming but the food and some on board arrangements are disappointing. I prepurchased the mast climb but as a result of the waiting to climb missed half the cruise and included drinks standing around... More

Had a great time on the Convicts, Castles and Champagne tour. Our guide, Colin, was excellent - knowledgeable, humourous and friendly. We were aboard the Southern Swan and the tour started from Campbells' Cove, near The Rocks and sailed to Goat Island before heading back again. The ship was lovely and the crew were friendly. The tour was excellent though... More

Bought our tickets on a Living Social deal which included lunch and drinks. When we booked online we were offered the opportunity to note any dietary requirements, we mentioned halal or vegetarian. The only vegetarian option was the spinach & cheese pastries, (not sure if the cheese passed for halal). The cruise departed at 1.40pm so we were pretty hungry,... More

Had my family from overseas come on the whale watch with us. It was great fun, need to be a bit aware if you get sea sick.

We have been on the tall ships previously for the evening around the harbour, which we loved, so decided to do the convicts and champagne tour. Absolutely perfect. Amazing winters days in Sydney. Blue sky and small group meant for a great tour of goat island and plenty of room on the boat to sit and watch the bridge and... More

I happened to run into the CEO of Tall Ships and was offered a free cruise around the Harbour. My friends and I showed up not knowing what to expect but ended up having a great time. The ship (which looks like something out of Pirates of the Caribbean) took us on a two hour cruise around Sydney Harbour and... More

Dear Soren Larsen team, Thank you so much for making our snooze and cruze overnight trip so enjoyable! We have had the best time ever and very much enjoyed the small group of only 6 people staying overnight. My partner got up at 5am in the morning after a short sleep in a tiny, but warm bed in the cozy... More
