Sydney Harbour Luxury Sailing Trip including Lunch

    What to Expect
    In the morning, make your own way to Darling Harbour to meet your 40-foot (12-meter) luxury cruising yacht. Your captain welcomes you aboard and provides a safety briefing before you set off under the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

    Keep your camera handy for great photo ops of the iconic Sydney Opera House and the Rocks, where the British colonists first established the colony. Then sail past Farm Cove, Mrs. Macquaries Chair, and Fort Denison, where convict prisoners were kept in rough conditions during colonial times.

    Glide through Rushcutters Bay, passing a marina where majestic yachts are moored—many of them compete in the renowned Sydney-to-Hobart sailing race. Turn towards Sydney's exclusive eastern suburbs and view sprawling waterside mansions, then sail into Watsons Bay where your captain points out legendary restaurant Doyle's on the Beach, and the harbor’s official clothing-optional beach at Lady Bay.

    Cross the entrance to the harbor to view Sydney Heads and gaze at the Pacific Ocean, then head into a protected bay in Sydney Harbour National Park. Drop anchor at gorgeous Store Beach and enjoy more than an hour there to relax and have lunch. You might take a swim, go snorkeling, try fishing, or stroll along the beach before lunch is served onboard the boat. Lunch includes dishes with seafood, chicken, salads, fruit, and dessert, accompanied by Australian beer or wine and soft drinks.

    Throughout the cruise, your captain provides informative commentary on Sydney's history and sights. Your boat comes fully equipped with a spacious dining and lounge area, comfortable interior cabin and exterior decks, shower and toilet facilities, and safety equipment.

    In the early afternoon head back to Darling Harbour, soaking up the sun and fresh air before returning to your starting point to end your sailing cruise.

    Loved seeing Sydney from the Harbour and Colin was great! He also made us a fabulous lunch! Make sure you put on loads of sunscreen as we did get quite a burn. Remind Colin to put down the top so you are protected from the sun. We didn't do that for half of the trip.

    If you go to Sydney, you have to see the city from the water, and there is no better way than a sail on Colin's 40 foot Benetteau. An excellent day's sail in Sydney Harbour, very good value for money. Four of us on the boat, with Colin. Time split between motoring and sailing

    Very much enjoyed the sail in Sydney Harbour with Colin on his 40’ Beneteau Sailboat. He provided a wonderful AM narrative on the Sydney Harbour while motoring, due to light morning winds. The sail was between 10AM and 3PM. The sails were up later in the AM and PM. We
