Owner description: Sydney Harbour Boat Tours takes small groups to places no other tour operators go - we land our boat on secluded harbour beaches and visit fascinating and historic waterfront locations. You'll see all the iconic Sydney Harbour sights (Opera House, Harbour Bridge etc) and hear some fascinating stories about our amazing 'living and working' harbour. We have a range of options from 90 mins, half and full day tours, designed so people can see as much of Sydney Harbour in the time they have available. We also provide special tours for NYE, Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race etc, plus we do private group charters.

This trip is wonderful and we had a superb day out! We were given inside information as to who owns the million dollar mansions and heard many entertaining anecdotes to go with them. There were plenty of photo opportunities of the bridge, opera house, and harbour sights. A seafood lunch at the fishmarket was included. After this the boat tour visited Manley, we took a cliff top walk, and had a stop at a beautiful sandy beach (football, rugby ball, frisby provided for the energetic) and a further stop at Watsons Bay Hotel. A really well thought out tour with a great guy showing us around. Very entertaining and excellent value for money.

I toured the Sydney Harbour last week with Andrew and Amba and it was without a doubt the highlight of my trip to Australia. The weather was great, the places we visited totally interesting but above all the commentary and information provided second to none. The feeling on the tour was one of traveling with friends to special places and finishing up at a quiet unoccupied beach a total bonus. I found it so interesting watching the giant tour boats pass by on a standard route while Andrew's boat was able to scoot to otherwise less than accessible places.

I would highly recommend this tour to anyone...even Sydnyeites!

What a fabulous trip this was!There were 7 of us on a trip to Sydney and had this boat trip recommended to us by an agent we were booking the sydney harbour bridge climb with!
We had little idea what to expect....but it was a fabulous! Andrew and his helper Amber were amazing! Andrews knowledge of the area was brilliant and he was never boring!He had a great rapport with us all even though we had a varied age and background mix!( there were a lovely group of Americans and 2 Asian girls on board also , and he and Amber made us all so welcome .We saw a great range of attractions, the homes of the rich and famous, and the beaches you would probably never find on your own! The lunch of a seafood platter is amazing!
Andrew will probably remember us as when he drove us back to the hotel we had a good old sing song on his mini bus!which ended our day on a high!
fabulous and value for money trip.Great host and if we go back to sydney we would love to do it all again!

WOW!!!! Amazing is all I can say. We are a special needs school from Florida and was in Sydney for a week. This tour was the first thing we did when we were in Sydney and that is all the students and some of the staff said was their favorite thing we did.This is a must do. Andrew and his crew person Amber was outstanding and very accomadating. They went above and beyond the call of duty. Again Thank you Andrew and Amber you made a HUGE difference and many lives that day.

The whole day was fantastic and a great way to see a wide range of Sydney and find out many interesting facts along the way. The skipper Andrew keeps everyone entertained and makes sure everyone is well fed and the fish markets which was a highlight of the trip for me. Would recommend this trip to all travelling in Sydney.
