      Sydney Harbour Cruise
      Went on 3 hr Long Lunch cruise. Disappointed with the route taken. We went into Darling Harbour 3 times & Circular Quay twice which meant we only cruised into harbour just past Clark Island then turned around. No commentary given. The staff, meals & service were all good. Would choose another company to cruise further into harbour next time. If using a Gift Voucher check the expiry times as they can be misleading.

      Evening Dinner Cruise
      We did the evening dinner cruise. Everything was amazing- the service food entertainment and the views. We have been travelling across Australia for 6 weeks and this has been the most memorable experience Thanks to all the staff who looked after us

      Comfortable and a good dinner
      The cruise was comfortable and the dinner was good, but the "Sunset Cruise" was back to the pier way before sunset!! I think they had to set up for the next group. It was still enjoyable though.

      Dinner was dry and bland, harbour was stunning
      While the cruise around our stunning Sydney harbour was enjoyable, the dinner itself was a poor experience. There were 2 choices for both entrees and dessert, and 3 choices for main course. The food was fairly ordinary eg smoked salmon entree on a small bed of dry lettuce with capers was akin to what I would prepare at home. Mains of either chicken or barramundi were both dry and bland. Wait staff were mechanical and attempted to clear my plate while I was still eating with my fork mid air ! Similarly an over zealous waiter took my wine glass away mid meal even though we had a bottle of wine still. This was a valentines dinner and I felt mildly embarrassed I had chosen this. Unfortunately I cannot recommend captain cook cruises as a dinner cruise.

      Sydney Harbor cocktail cruise
      Saw the fireworks from the boat. Lovely experience overall. The service was very good and the singer on board was excellent. We sat downstairs where there wasn’t any crowd.

      Looking for Kangaroos.
      The zoo was average at best because I didn’t expect to go to Australia and not be able to see a big Kangaroos at the zoo but wannabes.I was very disappointed.Few local animals bit not too special.

      Don't use Captain Cook, they will leave you behind and not provide the refund they promise
      Not sure which is worse · They intentionally, rudely denied us access to the ferry in the Manly suburb of Sydney, AU · Or they promised on multiple occasions a refund only to never process it My husband and I took the hop on/off ferry to Manly and when trying to get back on the ferry to Taronga Zoo we got left behind event though we were right by the ferry agent and spoke to her. In fact we apologized for the behavior of another guest that was being rude to her. We asked if the boat that was there was ours and she told us to wait for the next boat. When it arrived, she opened the gate for passengers to get off and then quickly shut it and walked away. We thought she would come back but she didn't and the boat left!!! We couldn't believe it as we were right with her and she knew we were waiting for that boat! As a result we had to pay to take another line and then got to the zoo so late it wasn't worth paying the entry fee. We emailed captain cook management and the apologized, asked for our credit card for a reimbursement and promised a refund that never came. They did not dispute what happened but didn't provide what they promised TWICE! Dont' waste your time or money with this operation as there are others to choose from and they surely can't be worse.

      DO NOT BOOK ANY EXCURSIONS WITH TRIP ADVISOR
      We were sent inaccurate meet up information causing us to miss our Sydney harbour dinner cruise and wasting over £200 which has been refused a refund or credit. Trip Advisor are not an honourable company - always book direct with the tour operator

      Highly Recommended.
      Fabulous cruise. Everything went perfectly. The welcome was great, the food was top notch , the service at the table was spot on . Of course the views were wonderful. I would give the cruise an extra point because thank goodness they didn't have a welcome to country.

      Great day trip offer, some administrative kinks
      Wonderful opportunity to purchase fare and zoo entrance together. We were not aware of the hop on hop off Captain Cook ferry schedule. The schedule I used to consider what time to arrive at the terminal was the Sydney ferry schedule. After a thoughtfully planned day, we ended up having to waste an hour with a fussy toddler at the wharf waiting for the correct ferry's departure. I found I received multiple emails from TripAdvisor and for me personally they did not contain the most pertinent details of my trip, such as the ferry departure location or schedule, how to exchange my paid purchase for tickets, easily at my fingertips. This caused undue stress. When we arrived and saw buses l, we are also confused as to whether we should take a bus or not as we had no information on the bus prior. When we approached tej gate there was a long line of people. There was not clear direction that as we were prepaid we could bypass the line, nor were there signs or directions to indicate that we could do that. The ferry ride was great, the views spectacular and the Taronga Zoo is a lovely zoo, a good size to get around with a toddler and if you want to see more, you can. Thank you!

      Great Service
      We caught the 7pm ferry tonight back from Watsons Bay to Circular Quay. The young people one collecting the fares and the other assisting people on and off the boat were both informative and helpful. Sorry I didn’t know their names but they deserve a pat on the back!

    I wish I could leave zero stars. Between the two days the staff has stemmed from being simply unhelpful to outright rude - between telling us our tickets needed to be printed out and then leaving the dock as we were coming back down the gangway to leaving other porta before the scheduled times to unprofessional people working behind the counter. I understand they are on a timetable and deal with tourists all year so they have low tolerance for hiccups and need to stay on schedule but I have never been treated so poorly but a company that specializes in customer service in my life. Use another company. There are better options that wont take your money and treat you like dirt afterwards.

    The worst tourist trap. To expensive for nothing, wifi didnt work qr code didnt work, screen didnt work. No serving on the boat. Cashier fooled us and said that it was a total harbour trip. Regular trips to Manley is better. Avoid this!!
