We chose a lunch cruise so we could take advantage of the daylight and appreciate the beautiful views Sydney has to offer. We paid the extra $20 per head to get a good table position and we were definitely not let down. We had THE best table position, right by one of the many, clean windows. There was plenty of... More

We had a fantastic (lunch included) cruise (we paid the $20 extra for window seating and was pleasantly surprised). The food was great (even for picky husbands), the staff are great and friendly, and Sydney put on a beautiful day, for a wonderful cruise, showing off the magestic Harbour Bridge, the elegant Opera House and many, many beautiful buildings and...

Booked the standard 2 hour sightseeing cruise which provided the cruise and one drink, the boat used is fine service is average but acceptable by the crew. The cruise itself is pleasant enough but due to its routing from Darling Harbour to Circular quay then down the harbour back to Circular Quay then returning to Darling Harbour you end up... More

This is a lunch cruise which we had booked after our city tours of sydney. The cruise starts at 1.15 and comes back to Darling Harbour by 2.30. The cruise takes us upto the Oprah house and during the interim there is running commentary about the various aspects of sydney and this cruise runs under the harbour bridge. The spread... More

Our group of 28 had a terrific time on this cruise. Food was fantastic and a tremendous value with a group rate on a Thursday night. Unfortunately it was rainy and on the chilly side, but that can happen in winter so we rolled with the punches and my college students had a great time and some wonderful pictures. The... More

This lunch cruise ticks all the boxes. Fantastic food, including some seafood, salads, hot dishes and delicious desserts. Extremely friendly and professional staff that are only too happy to help. A well maintained, comfortable boat to sit back and relax as you listen to the informative commentary as you cruise past the iconic landscape of Sydney Harbour. The staff went... More

I did the Vivid cruise on Saturday night & thought it was the worst cruise that I have had on Sydney Harbour, We seemed to have missed the light best show as all we saw was The Opera House, Harbour Bridge & office buildings in a distance! I certainly will not recommend your company!

We booked the Vivid 2015 Supersaver ll to see the Vivid Sydney lights. Cruise was wonderful, seeing the lights from the harbour was spectacular, staff onboard were friendly and attentive. My tip would be to book the earlier cruise Supersaver l which departs at 5.45 returns at 7.00pm, this way you would still see the lights from the harbour but... More

Joined the cruise from Darling Harbour and straight into an enormous buffet. Seafood, lamb shanks, and lots of noodle, rice and vegies. That combined with a few beers was a great way to get underway. Headed out slowly from Darling Harbour and cruised past Barangaroo. Looking great at night. The key was seeing the beautiful and fascinating spectacle that is... More
