Shark Island Tours

star-4.5
545 Reviews
Shark Island
On an urban getaway to Sydney's Shark Island, travelers can surround themselves with the cobalt waters of the famous Sydney Harbour and find the best coastal perch to enjoy the panoramic view. Once used for animal quarantine, Shark Island is now part of the Sydney Harbour National Park. The 3.7-acre island's picnic tables, walking paths and craggy coves are sprinkled with sand and sea glass, offering a peaceful escape just a short ferry ride from bustling Circular Quay.

Visit as part of a guided tour to stroll the shoreline and snorkel, or make your own schedule by visiting as part of a hop on, hop off ferry cruise. Aside from seeing Shark Island itself, travelers are treated to a full view of Sydney Harbour, where the Opera House and Harbour Bridge rise up from the hills and waves.

Practical Info

The ferry crossing is 35 minutes from Darling Harbor and 20 minutes from Circular Quay, with the first ferry running at 9:30am. On weekdays, the final ferry leaves Shark Island around 2:30pm, which is extended to 4:25pm on weekends. Since there are no dining facilities on Shark Island, be sure to plan ahead and pack everything you'll need for the day, including food and water.
 
Did You Know? The island is named for its shape, which greatly resembles that of a shark.
Address: Shark Island, Point Piper, New South Wales, Australia

Exclusive Family 3 hour Cruise - In Style

star-5
The Vessel and I! I pride myself on the experience you have, and haven't had a bad review yet, and that's after 500+ charters under my belt! But simply put, I'll look after you, not just treat you as a number. I own and skipper the boat, always. So you know who's going to take you out. The vessel has just undergone a very expensive refit and is an incredibly comfortable catamaran in all conditions, thanks to the handy, fully sealed and openable saloon cockpit doors that enable it to be fully shut off or fully open up, depending on the conditions of the day.
