So much fun. We used it to get to a couple of places like the zoo and the aquarium wharf and shark island, but really enjoyed just cruising around the harbor. Great views, excellent weather and such a nice boat to tool around in, fast and smooth. Try to get one of the outside seats when the weather is nice. It's a great ride. The ticket is a true 24 hour ticket so you could get it in the early afternoon and use it all day and again in the morning the next day.

In any event, this is a cruise well worth taking: it leaves every 45 minutes from both Circular Quay and Darling Harbour, and stops at all the key spots around the harbour: Watsons Bay, Taronga Zoo, Darling Harbour Harbourside (near the Aquarium), Shark Island and Luna Park. Each of those destinations is worth exploring in more depth, perhaps none more so than Watsons Bay, where you can take an hour to walk past Camp Cove and Lady Jane beaches on your way out to South Head, at the entrance to Sydney Harbour.
