The Sydney harbor cruise aboard the Southern Swan, a 1923 beautiful triple masted tall wooden sailing ship was a unique, fun, and engaging experience. As first-time visitors to Sydney, we felt this was a perfect way to get a feel for the harbor and the city in an interesting, relaxing, and pleasant atmosphere. A simple nice meal was served along with appetizers and warm brownies for desert. The crew went above and beyond to ensure everyone was having a good time. Both kids and adults were offered the opportunity to participate in pulling the ropes, raising the sails and steering the ship. Captain Jim and first mate/host with the most Jim Lad shared stories and answered any and all questions in a friendly and informative way. If you are wondering if this tour is right for you, just do it.

I purchased tickets to the Twilight Dinner Cruise as a belated birthday outing for my daughter who turned 21 during lockdown. We were so lucky to have beautiful weather for our cruise. The boat is beautiful and has such history attached to it. The food was really good. My daughter has coeliac disease and this was easily catered for.

My daughter and her younger brother (aged 13) both climbed the mast. Julia (crew member) gave them a thorough safety briefing and assisted them to harness up. My son goes to the local rock climbing centre regularly so he loved this. My daughter got stuck half way and had to be rescued by Julia. Julia was fantastic. She climbed up the rope ladder next to my daughter and encouraged her to keep going. She made it to the top and was so proud of herself.

Both my children had a turn at steering the boat under the guidance of Captain Andy.

Crew member Thomas provided lots of information and gave a great commentary about Sydney and different sites along the harbour.

Our cruise was fantastic. It surpassed my expectations and we would love to go again sometimes. I would definitely recommend it. IT was so much fun!

We’re Aussies and familiar with Sydney Harbour and we really enjoyed this relaxing cruise.
The ship feels authentic and you can help pull the rope to furl the sails. The staff are mostly young and all friendly and clearly enjoy their jobs.
The dinner is plentiful and good. Staff member Jo is passionate about Sydney Harbour and shared lots of information with the guests.
I recommend this cruise to all ages, you will learn about Sydney and the beautiful harbour.

Our dinner cruise yesterday was thoroughly enjoyable. The crew were very entertaining and informative, the food was good and tasty. Pack a jacket/jumper as it is a little chilly on the water but the crew do have blankets if needed.
Would definitely do another tall ships cruise, it was a lovely experience being on the water on such an historical ship.

Our family did the evening dinner cruise and it was wonderful. No better way to see the harbour and the sites of the city. Especially at sunset. The kids climbed the mast, took the helm and helped set the sails. Our hosts were full of historical information of things we saw on the tour and the crew were very friendly and informative about the ship and her history. Lovely people and good value. Highly recommend. Keep up the good work Sydney Harbour Tall Ship. Cheers.

The cruise itself was fantastic, and a great birthday present for my partner but due to incorrect timing as per the attached screenshot showing 5.30 departure, we unfortunately missed the boat on April 10. After watching the boat pull away and a very distressing phone call to tall ships at 5 10pm they offered us the same cruise for the following day. This meant we had to incur another nights accomodation etc. I am extremely disappointed with trip advisor and will be very hesitant to book with you in the future. I did receive an email telling me we had a message which was unclear as it also showed a 5.30 departure at a glance which I took as confirmation therefor i didnt read the text content. I feel the change in timing should have been the headline on the email from trip advisor being the booking agent. I would appreciate some form of compensation for the additiobal costs incurred.

The experience of the bot started very well; it was easy to check in; James the storyteller was fun and responsive, and the captain was lovely. Even, some People had fun climbing the mast to enjoy the views. However, If this is a “dinner cruise”, we were expecting average to good food, but the food served was at most mediocre - we ended up going for dinner afterwards.

Tall Ships changed the boarding location without notifying us. The Trip Advisor and our ticket had the same location, but when we arrived there was no ship. We called and were told by a very snippy employee that they had changed the departure point and had tried to reach us, but we received no phone call, text, or email. Checked the Trip Adviser site and it still had the location stated on our ticket. Then we were told that the ship had already departed even though we would have had time to walk to the new location before the scheduled departure time. No Apology and No Refund from the company.

Great crew, very interactive with passengers
Three course dinner not exactly what they advertised. Yes there were three courses. Appetizer consisted of one small piece of sausage and one piece of cheese spinach puff. Main course three salads rice and entree. Dessert consisted of one small brownie. Food was ok but had to supplement it when I departed the ship

Great bit of history and stories told by the crew. Was lovely to see the sunset (albeit a cloudy one when we went!) from the ship and to see the harbour from a different angle. Would highly recommend it, really glad we did it.
