About
Cruise Sydney Harbour at sunset on a catamaran cruise, and get gorgeous views of landmarks from the Sydney Opera House to the Sydney Harbour Bridge. While single-hull boats can leave little space for passengers, flat decks on a 35-foot (10.5-meter) catamaran mean plenty of room to relax during this Sydney Harbour sunset cruise.

Had an amazing tour with Frank and Otis! We luckily had the most perfect sunset, Frank was super lovely and friendly and spoke to all of us on the boat personally, the food provided was fresh and tasty and the seats were super comfy! You could see every part of the harbour on the boat and Frank went out of his way to make sure everyone was safe and comfortable! I highly recommend booking this tour! Well worth the money!

Me and my parents did the Harbour Cruise today and it was such a lovely evening! Benn and James picked us up in the right time to see the the sunset from perfect angles, we just relaxed and enjoyed the cruise through Sydney Harbour. It was so comfortable and we felt really good taken care of. Would definitely recommend this Cruise to everyone.

The tour began too early (6.20 pm) - therefore no chance of sunset which would be at about 8 pm . So it was no special atmosphere on the boat. I found it rather boring. But the food was nice and delicious.

Thanks for your feedback Bianca. We are glad that you enjoyed the food while on board and hope that you also enjoyed the amazing Sydney Harbour views from the water. The cruise is designed to be a relaxed harbour cruise, with the harbour's beauty the focus and highlight of the experience. While we do endeavour to capture the sunset, we are sorry to hear that on the day that you cruised with us the timing was not 100%. We hope you enjoyed your trip to Sydney and thank you for sharing some of that time with our team.

Great cruise. One person in our party was experiencing her first trip to Sydney and another person isn't that great in the water. Both thoroughly enjoyed the cruise.
It was short and suited our needs as we were short on time.
The boat arrived relatively on time (about 10 mins late but it was very windy).
Two person crew, both were friendly and answered any questions you might have or take photos of your group. However, they didn't talk a lot about what we were seeing during the cruise. For example, if you wanted historical info about the area or random facts about the opera house this is not the cruise for you.
Food provided was better and more than expected for what we paid for our tickets. Cheese, crackers, fruit (grapes, strawberries etc), carrot sticks, hummus dip, bread sticks, dried apricots, chips etc. Soft drinks or water provided.
Only about 15 people on our cruise so we have lots of space to move about for some good photos.
We went in Nov so sunset is quite a bit later than 6pm to 7.30pm but still really pretty. The cruise is from Circular Quay to Darling Harbour and back so you get some good angles to take photos of the area.
Timing suited us a we had a dinner appointment.
Highly recommended! Really good value and suitable if short on time or if you have people in your group that might get seasick.

Thank you your feedback and review Alicia. It is so great to hear you enjoyed your harbour cruise and that this was well-suited to your and your guest's needs. The cruise is definitely a great way to see a snippet of the harbour and get some amazing photos from the water, so glad that you were able to experience this while visiting Sydney. Hope to see you on board again in the future!

This is a wonderful way to see the harbor from the water! The crew was very considerate taking pictures, pointing things out and even adjusting the boat to help get a good camera angle. We looked at the expensive dinner cruises and this was a perfect option for us. It is BYO, so for us who don't really drink we weren't paying for an open bar we wouldn't use. They also had a fruit tray and other bar snacks out as well as sodas and waters available. The catamaran was beautiful and very comfortable. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone going to Sydney!!

Excellent crew and great service but such a shame that the sky was full of smoke from the bush fires around Sydney that obscured the views but all in all a great evening
