Owner description: Sydney Harbour Boat Tours takes you to the authentic local gems where no other commercial operators go - we land our boat onto secluded harbour beaches and fascinating waterfront locations. Plus you'll see all the iconic Sydney harbour sights (Opera House, Harbour Bridge etc) and learn some great stuff about our amazing 'living and working' harbour. We have a range of options from 90 mins, half and full day tours, designed so people can see as much of Sydney Harbour in the time they have available. We also provide special tours for NYE, Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race, Australia Day etc, plus private group charters.

Hi Jen and Rob,
What a cool day on the harbour, not only was it a great bunch of people on the boat, but the run in with "Darren the Dolphin", was one of my most memorable times out there. I've seen this dolphin out there a few times before but to swim around store beach with a wild dolphin was great.
.
Good to see you've started putting some reviews on TA, enjoy your travels! Oh and Rob watch out for the Calamari??

I booked this trip back in uk for a group of five , response by e mail was always quick and informative . On the day Andrew picked us up from our hotel at nine and returned us at six . All the time we were escorted throughout the day and lunch ( included) was great . Andrew and Cindy were very knowledgable with great stories about the area . This felt more than a tour more a trip out with a friend also great value and we would all highly recommend this tour

There are not enough stars for this tour. I was thrown in the deep end by a mate and had to organise his bucks party at short notice. Having a look around the websites I came across Sydney Harbour Boat Tours.

I rang the owner - Andrew and spoke with him about the plans for the evening. He arranged to pick us up from Darling Harbour and take us out for a few hours and drop us back later that night.

The whole booking process was a breeze. Andrew went over the suggested plan and was more then willing to accommodate us by picking us up at King st wharf, he arranged the booking of the wharf and was early to pick us up.

The cruise itself was amazing, skipper Andrew picked us up early and we headed out on the Harbour.

When making the booking I discuses with Andrew that it was a bucks and I would need to bring aboard beverages. This was not a problem. He had 2 large eskies on board that easily held the drinks for the night. Andrew said bring aboard as much as needed, and we certainly did!

The boat was perfect, we had a small group of 10 for the night and the boat held 30, there was plenty of room. The boat is in great condition with plenty of seating.

The trip itself was sensational, Skipper Andrew took us for a tour of all the highlights as well as throwing in a cheeky trip stop to get a pie along the way. Throughout the trip Andrew made sure we were well stocked and was happy to stop and restock the supplies. He happily took us wherever we wanted throughout the duration of the trip.

Andrew himself is a fantastic skipper and tour guide. There are other tours out there but it's the personable approach that Andrew gives that makes Sydney Harbour Boat tours a stand out. Throughout the entire process from booking to the actual event Andrew made the process easy and enjoyable.

I could not recommend Sydney Harbour Boat tours highly enough. I certainly will be back on board soon.

Thanks Wildoperator,
If I remember correctly your name was Bill, and we had a night out on the Catamaran. Great to have you and your mates on board. Hope to get out there again soon.

If you are going to go on a cruise this is the one to go on. The tour guide knows all the sights to take groups on so you can see all the views of Sydney harbour.

Having recently finished a cruise of NZ and Brisbane River, we rate this tour of Sydney Harbour as a first class event. Andrew provided all that was advertised and more with his wit and detailed explanation of the various venues.Weather was great which was a plus. Lunch at the fish market was outstanding. Be aware that this is a cash only activity, but there are ATMs at the fish market.

Hi Blabb105,
Sorry for the late reply on this one, but thanks for the great review and posting your photos on Trip Advisor. By the look of the photo we had a great weather day. It certainly makes my job easy (not that I call it a job), when the weather is this good. Looking forward to the Spring Summer months coming on and get some more friendly Canadians on board. Good on you!

Andrew.
