      Sydney Harbour aboard "Heaven"
      We were in Sydney to celebrate my son's 50th birthday. This harbour cruise to see the lights of Vivid Sydney was an amazing experience. 2 of us use a walking stick. The crew were happy to help us aboard the boat and make sure we were comfortable. We can't thank the Captain & Crew of Heaven enough for making this such a special occasion for us all

      17.45 is actual departure time
      Unfortunately we missed the cruise by 1 minute... I was under the impression 17.45 was embarcation time in preparation for 18.00 departure. Only after, I saw there was a mention somewhere in the body of the email advising to arrive early but a clear "Departure" mention next to the 17.45 would have been helpful :( it was awful to see the catamaran departing as I reached the pier

      Amazing Experience on Harbor Boat
      The views were amazing the boat had a lot of outdoor seating which made it easier to see the light show. The staff were friendly and the snacks were very good, although make sure to eat beforehand because they aren’t meant to fill you up.

      Great Way to See Vivid
      A great way to experience Vivid without the crowds. Food was tasty and there was plenty of it to go around. Boat wasn’t overcrowded, so you could walk around to other areas of the boat. Staff were nice and friendly. Would recommend.

      The most wonderful Vivid trip possible.
      We did the Intimate Vivid Harbour Cruise with Sea Sydney Harbour and it was one of the most wonderful things I have done. When we walked to our meeting point, it was incredibly frantic with ships coming and going, thousands of people looking for their tours, but the staff on shore of SSH (sorry I didn't get your names) were just wonderful and so friendly and polite - not only to THEIR patrons, but incredibly helpful to the many lost people trying to find their own tours. Before we boarded, Captain Frank gave us a quick safety briefing then we boarded and set off - EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS TRIP WAS FAULTLESS! The boat was beautiful, well appointed, clean and comfortable. It wasn't overcrowded like most of the other boats I saw on the harbour with plenty of room to move around and lots of comfortable seating and vantage points available. Not long after we set off, the lovely Jules started serving the canapes - absolutely delicious! I expected crackers and cheese, maybe party pies but I did not expect the beautiful food we were blessed with - delightful dolmades, mouth watering meatballs, incredible pork sliders, everything was absolutely delicious with ample quantities available. Captain Frank took us around the harbour at a perfect speed, he took us close to shore to all the best photo spots and then perfectly positioned us for the "Love is in the Air" drone show. There is absolutely nothing negative I could say about this whole trip, certainly a 10 out of 10 experience enjoyed by my whole group. I would highly recommend Sea Sydney Cruises and plan to do this same trip again next year for Vivid.

      Great way to spend an hour!
      Fantastic views of the harbour at sunset. Lovely grazing platter. Small group & even though it wasn’t a narrated tour of the harbour, the driver was more than knowledgeable about the area

      This cruise is a Sydney highlight within itself!
      We recently enjoyed a 1 hour harbour catamaran cruise with snacks, and it was simply fantastic! The breathtaking views of Sydney's iconic landmarks combined with the delicious nibbles made for a memorable experience. The crew were friendly and knowledgeable, answering questions of guests on board. The departure location is right near the Sydney Opera House, so if you're short on time, definitely recommend planning these into your itinerary together. I would highly recommend this cruise to anyone looking to see the best of Sydney Harbour in a short amount of time. The ticket price is inexpensive and the cruise is worth every penny!

      This an enjoyable experience. Pretty punctual (so don’t be late). It is a great beautiful slow paced way to see Sydney from the harbor. Would recommend for sure!

      Really great value for money
      I’ve attended this trip twice and I’ve really enjoyed both times. I’ve been lucky enough to enjoy lovely weather both times! The nibbles and soft drinks are great, the staff are friendly and helpful and take photos. The boat is clean and lovely and I think it’s amazing value for money. Really recommend for you or for anyone visiting!

    We had our company Christmas party on Fleetwing . There was 21 of us from 6-11pm.
    Ann and I organised the layout for the evening and she is very thorough and professional.
    Frank is the skipper and captain- again very professional and knows Sydney Harbour very well
    . We had our own chef and waiter but the 2 crew helped with everything.
    The whole evening went seamlessly and we would definitely book an event with SeaSydneyHarbour again.
    Thankyou for making our party a huge success
    🥳🎄🍾👏

    An absolutely amazing day! The crew were so helpful with our BYO they even cooked the bbq food for us whilst we cooked down in the water! The boat was perfect for group size (fleetwing 2 / 46pax) there was still plenty of room with everyone on board and the upstairs seating area was perfect for catch some sun. Overall the best Christmas party we have ever held thank you so much to captain frank for the smooth sailing and thank you to Ann for all her help prior to boarding she answered any and all of my questions (I had alot) she made sure we were thoroughly prepared for our 4 hour cruise. Thank you again we will certainly be back!!!
