Overview
Discover the best of Sydney Harbour during this 3-hour scenic boat cruise from Darling Harbour. Sail past landmarks including Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House; check out waterside mansions, Watsons Bay, and resident penguins; and stop at several beaches for a stroll or a swim. Tours, which depart in morning and afternoon, include light refreshments and a local captain who brings a personal touch to your tour.
What to Expect

Make your own way to Darling Harbour, where you meet your captain and board your comfortable open-top motorized boat. The boat seats 16 people, and has a shade structure and restroom.

Set sail and take in classic Sydney Harbour sights including the Sydney Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge, and Manly Head. Look for little penguins at a secluded national park beach, and then stop at North Head Quarantine Station for tea, followed by a walk around the historic settlement and its museum. 

Learn from your captain about the stories behind the landmarks, historical sites, and mansions that you pass, and have time at another beach to stroll or swim (towels are provided). You also land at picturesque Watsons Bay and take a short walk for stunning views of the Pacific Ocean and towering cliffs of the Gap.

After three hours on the water, your tour ends back in Darling Harbour.

Great way to see the harbour

the wording "small group tour" was the main reason for choosing this company. We had a great morning out in the harbour with stops at a private beach, the quarantine center and Watsons Bay. We would never have got to these places in the short...More

Thank you Ann. We are so happy you liked the 'intimate' aspect of our tour, and that we were able to show you some of the lesser known parts of Sydney Harbour. Hope to see you soon.

Thoughtful, fun and interesting.

You can't beat a tour with locals that own and operator their own business. They know the history, the quiet secrets, the funny stories and they have that personal touch that makes you feel welcome. Adam was our boat captain, Ellody was our tour guide....More
