Overview

Experience Sailing on Sydney Harbour. Our three hour trips are a perfect way to see Sydney from the water. Be involved as much or as little as you like. Our professional skippers will quite literally show you the ropes so you can help sail the yacht. Or sit back and relax and enjoy the view. Sailing in Sydney is a fantastic experience, one that is suitable for all ages

A 40-minute ferry ride from Circular Quay will take
you to the famous northern beach of Manly. The beaches
here are perfect for learning to surf or spending the
day sun-tanning. The walk from Spit Bridge to Manly is
a great way to experience Sydney Harbor Bay and the
Australian bush land. Along the foreshore, there are
plenty of watering holes and wine bars with excellent
cuisine. There are plenty of kid-friendly restaurants
