Sydney Harbour Luxury Sailing Trip including Lunch

    What to Expect
    In the morning, make your own way to Darling Harbour to meet your 40-foot (12-meter) luxury cruising yacht. Your captain welcomes you aboard and provides a safety briefing before you set off under the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

    Keep your camera handy for great photo ops of the iconic Sydney Opera House and the Rocks, where the British colonists first established the colony. Then sail past Farm Cove, Mrs. Macquaries Chair, and Fort Denison, where convict prisoners were kept in rough conditions during colonial times.

    Glide through Rushcutters Bay, passing a marina where majestic yachts are moored—many of them compete in the renowned Sydney-to-Hobart sailing race. Turn towards Sydney's exclusive eastern suburbs and view sprawling waterside mansions, then sail into Watsons Bay where your captain points out legendary restaurant Doyle's on the Beach, and the harbor’s official clothing-optional beach at Lady Bay.

    Cross the entrance to the harbor to view Sydney Heads and gaze at the Pacific Ocean, then head into a protected bay in Sydney Harbour National Park. Drop anchor at gorgeous Store Beach and enjoy more than an hour there to relax and have lunch. You might take a swim, go snorkeling, try fishing, or stroll along the beach before lunch is served onboard the boat. Lunch includes dishes with seafood, chicken, salads, fruit, and dessert, accompanied by Australian beer or wine and soft drinks.

    Throughout the cruise, your captain provides informative commentary on Sydney's history and sights. Your boat comes fully equipped with a spacious dining and lounge area, comfortable interior cabin and exterior decks, shower and toilet facilities, and safety equipment.

    In the early afternoon head back to Darling Harbour, soaking up the sun and fresh air before returning to your starting point to end your sailing cruise.
