We loved the tall ship experience so much. It was a gorgeous day so that helps but the ship is beautiful and the guide was entertaining and informative. We met some lovely people on board and even paid the extra to do the climb to the crows nest. After stepping out onto the ropes to begin the climb I started... More

We went on the afternoon cruise around the harbour which we purchased through Red Balloon at a very reasonable $50 for two (normally $100) for a 1.5 hour cruise. We were surprised that the price included a drink package. The Danish sailing ship was roomy for the number of passengers and after a safety briefing we left Campbell Cove. While... More

Wonderful evening spent sailing around Sydney Harbour on the "Soren Larsen" tall ship. Lovely old ship with a very helpful and friendly crew. Crew member gave an informative and interesting history of the ship at the start. Passengers were allowed to climb up to the crows nest. Good value for money. More than enough finger food was served and all... More

We spent the night on board the twilight cruise. The staff were very friendly and very knowledgeable and Jai, the newest crew member, dobbed us in to hoist the sail. We really enjoyed the experience. A perfect night in a perfect location. We highly recomend.

Com'on Tall Ships! The food? The effort? shame! As a present bought for a group of local friends the harbour "sail" was disappointing and how it was run didn't meet any basic expectations of any commercial service (perhaps because most crew are volunteers?) No idea how they could've been awarded a tourism award. Yes the ship is "charming" and "unique"... More

Relaxing cruise in the harbour. True square-sailed sailing ship. They let some of the passengers hoist the sails. They serve some light appetizers (and unexpected surprise). Only suggestion for improvement is to increase the volume when talking about the sights.

Our cruise was a gift from Christmas 2015 (Red Kite). We managed to book on one of the most perfect days to be on Sydney Harbour. Captain Marty and host Craig were friendly and welcoming as were all the staff. The finger food was tasty and adequate and the bubbles flowed freely. We didn't partake, but the people who climbed...

It wasn't as exciting as I expected but still a worthwhile experience. I think I would only do it once. The food was average, staff were accommodating and the cruise overall was informative and relaxing.

With two friends from Brisbane, my wife and I enjoyed a wonderful cruise in Sydney Harbour. The crew were friendly, the finger food appetising and the choice of Butter Chicken or Meatballs and gravy with rice and salad well cooked and appreciated. A highlight for me was the opportunity to climb the rear Mast and to perch atop the "Crows... More
