Magic way to spend time on the harbor
Apr 2021
As a history buff, I loved the knowledgeable commentary by Howard and the authentic sailing ship. The crew were polite and got us involved in hoisting the sails. It was so peaceful and I highly recommend the voyage. I'm six generation Australian so it was particularly poignant for me. Thanks guys!

Highlight of our Sydney trip
Apr 2021
Me and my 5yr old had an incredible afternoon on the tall ship. The staff were so lovely and fascinating to listen to. Very child friendly and interesting for anyone. Spectacular views and so peaceful on the harbour. I wasn't sure if I'd enjoy the afternoon (boats aren't my thing) but it truely was a magical time. 100% would do again.

Good way to see Sydney Harbour
Jan 2020 • Solo
The Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge look great from the water. Great picture opportunities. Drinks are available to buy on board and there are free snacks. Relax and see the view, help set the sails if you want to, and get a picture steering the ship. Tour guide was funny and knowledgeable.

Fantastic afternoon on the water!
Dec 2019 • Family
What a brilliant way to see the sights of Sydney Harbour! Andy and Jimmy were fantastic hosts with a wealth of knowledge about the harbour and everything in it. A highlight for the kids was steering the boat and helping set the sail! The drinks and canapés were a nice touch for the adults too. Well worth having on the list of things to do when visiting Sydney.

Nice cruise, great boat, expert crew.
The only minus (but nothing the cruise could help) was the massive fire haze over Sydney

Come Sail Away
Nov 2019
We loved our Sydney Harbor Tall Ship Cruise! We loved being greeted by a friendly Captain and crew. Everyone was very professional and courteous. The guide was very informative to the history of the ship and the surrounding areas. The food offered as snacks were very delicious and the bar tender was very friendly. The ship itself was interesting and it was fun to get to help steer and one of our daughters got to help raise the sails - a real kick for her. The weather was gorgeous and sailing around the harbor was a real treat.
