Beach Tours and Harbour Cruises in Sydney
Hop on a ferry. Sail a boat. Jump in a helicopter. Or let Sydney's experienced tour operators show you the way. With an adventurous spirit, it's easy to uncover the best-kept secrets of Sydney's beautiful waterways and beaches.
Jet speed boats, harbour cruises, twilight sails, fishing charters and whale watching tours (in season) are all great ways to experience Sydney Harbour, but don't forget the ferry. Manly's the most famous destination from Circular Quay, but you can also catch ferries to Watson's Bay, Balmain, Woolwich, Mosman, Taronga Zoo and even Parramatta. Buy a day pass and hop aboard.
Diving enthusiasts can discover the best dive sites and marine life around the harbour with a guided tour. Or, wax up a board and hop on a wave; you'll find surfing lessons in the Northern Beaches, Bondi and Cronulla. A kayaking tour is also a great way to get to know Sydney's lesser-known waterways.
For an aerial perspective, book a helicopter flight or seaplane tour, some of which combine flights and a romantic gourmet lunch. And don't forget the fun you can have from the shore, either. On an eco-tour, you'll learn about lagoons, headlands, rock platforms and flora and fauna. Or, join an Aboriginal fishing tour and learn how to catch your dinner and cook it!
There are also heaps of great day trip tours on offer to the Northern Beaches, the Central Coast and iconic Bondi Beach. And if you've got time, don't miss a day trip to the beautiful beaches of Bundeena and the Royal National Park, around an hour out of Sydney.
