There’s no better way to immerse yourself in Sydney’s most spectacular sights than a cruise around its famed harbour. With a multitude of harbour cruise options on offer, the only problem is picking which to join. Here are five of the best Sydney Harbour cruises and boat experiences on offer.
Experience sunset on Sydney Harbour with a dinner cruise. There are options for 2 or 3-course meals available, with children’s meals and complimentary wine or soft drink. Cruises depart at 5 pm and take approximately 90 minutes. During this time you will see all the iconic and beautiful sites the harbour has to offer – while it changes colour from the golden hour through to the last gorgeous rays of the day.
Grab a 24-hour pass and check out seven different stops around Sydney Harbour. Hop on and hop off whenever it takes your fancy. Cruises depart every 45 minutes, stopping at Darling Harbour, Circular Quay, Taronga Zoo, Watsons Bay, Luna Park, Manly, Fort Denison, Shark Island, and Garden Island. You can also get a discount of up to 45% on selected Sydney attractions.
This is a great way to see the city in style. Departing from Circular Quay, cruise Sydney Harbour on a five million dollar catamaran. Enjoy a complimentary drink on board as you see all the major Sydney Harbour sites in just one hour, complete with informative commentary.
Take a relaxed four hour cruise of the harbour, with a stop for freshly-grilled lunch cooked by the ship’s crew. Small groups of up to 12 passengers are welcome on the ‘Calypso’ motor yacht, with private charters also available, and learn about Sydney Harbour’s history from friendly and informative guides.
The Sydney Harbour Kayaks Coffee Tour departs from Spit Bridge to Middle head, stopping for freshly-brewed coffee or tea for the short paddle back. Enjoy Pacific Ocean views as your guides introduce you to the fascinating natural history of the Sydney Harbour area. This tour takes around 2 hours.
