Choose from a morning or afternoon departure, hop aboard your cruise boat at Sydney’s Circular Quay then head out into the harbor to begin your sightseeing tour. Your boat features comfortable and warm interior with large viewing windows, on-board bar with a good selection of drinks to choose from (own expense) and lots of outdoor space.

With uninterrupted views of famous waterside attractions, a harbor cruise is the perfect way to soak up the sights in style.

Gaze out over Sydney’s Fort Denison — an imposing fortress on a small island near the Royal Botanic Gardens — and learn of its fascinating past from the live on-board commentary. Admire the Garden Island Naval base, Watsons Bay and Government House, then head under the Sydney Harbour Bridge toward Goat Island and the famous Darling Harbour.

Cruise the upper reaches of Middle Harbour — where palatial waterfront homes, parks, beaches and marinas reveal Sydney's relaxed lifestyle at its best — and sip on a refreshing cup of tea or coffee on board. Your tour includes popular ‘Aussie’ sweets and pastries such as lamingtons, a layered sponge cake coated in chocolate and desiccated coconut.

After two hours exploring Sydney’s famous harbor from the waves, cruise back to the city’s Circular Quay to conclude your sightseeing tour.

We took the morning cruise and found it to be an excellent way to explore Sydney. We had wonderful views of the opera house, bridge, and parks. The 'coffee' included a choice of tea as well plus a box of pastries. Our guide - Elizabeth - was knowledgable and informative. As we were leaving the boat at the conclusion of the tour, I could smell lunch being prepared. I half wished we had opted for the lunch or dinner cruise as well because the morning cruise was so enjoyable.

The boat tour was wonderful and the customer service was absolutely first rate starting with the lady at the ticket booth through to the cruise boat crew and especially the tour guide who went out of her way to be responsive to all of us tourists. Only suggestion would be to review your box of snacks to have something for people who are diabetic or on a low calorie diet.
