The Basics

Sydney Harbour is at the top of the must-see list for first-time visitors to Sydney, and the most popular way to enjoy the views is on a sightseeing cruise. Opt for a scenic lunch cruise, admire the illuminated city skyline on a romantic dinner cruise, take a whale-watching cruise, or book one with a stop at Goat Island or Fort Denison. For the most spectacular views, soar overhead on a helicopter tour, or get back to nature on a walking tour in Sydney Harbour National Park.

Sydney Harbour Sunset Dinner Cruise
Good service from start to finish. Food come out quickly and was very nice. The boat was clean and well maintained. The piano playing during the cruise was subtle and relaxing. Would do it again.

Journey Beyond Cruise Sydney Harbour - All inclusive Lunch Cruise
Outstanding service, exception staff, great weather and a boat that wasn't too big so the conversation was easy and the noise level very low. The food and service were excellent. Altogether it's very hard to suggest how anything could have been better. It was a wonderful experience and we look forward to doing it again soon.
