Sydney Harbour Cruises
By Viator, May 2015
What to know
The hub of Sydney Harbour is Circular Quay, the main ferry terminus situated at the bottom of the Central Business District. This was the original founding site of both Sydney and Australia, and from here, most tours begin.
Short on Time
On a tight schedule? Want a taste, but not spend the day cruising the harbour? Perhaps the Harbour Highlights would suit you. This 1.5 hour cruise departs at 5 different times during the day, and hits major points of interest such as Sydney Opera House, Point Piper, and Darling Harbour, while hearing exclusive commentary along the way.
Sydney Harbour is, without a doubt, one of the most beautiful harbours in the world. A sunset cruise over the pellucid blue waters is guaranteed to impress. Approximately an hour and a half, expect the beauty of an Australian sunset, champagne, and a fine meal while getting a view of the excitement held in Australia’s most famous waterway. For an additional thrill, a twilight dinner cruise aboard a historic tall ship is a unique opportunity. Be sharp, however, and book in advance; this cruise sets sail only once a month.
There’s no doubt, the Sydney Opera House is the most iconic symbol of Sydney. The architecture is masterful, the façade stunning, the inside stage home to some of the most culturally significant acts currently touring the globe. If you want all things Sydney Opera House, consider the Opera House, Dinner Cruise, and Ballet package. On this all day event, you’ll see the most of the harbour, get an insider’s tour of the Sydney Opera House, dine on a two-course meal back on the water, and see the Australian Ballet perform at the venue you just learned so much about.
See It All Cruises
Say you just have a day, you want to see the finest points of the city, yet the harbour is still on the mind. Why not do both? Ultimate Sydney guides you through some of the most poignant districts of Sydney on foot, then by vehicle, then by 38ft. sailing yacht. The Sydney Harbour Luxury Sailing Trip is another intimate option, where a small group embarks on a 5 hour cruise under bridges and through quays, allowing you to snap photographs of Sydney’s most iconic trademarks.
