It was a good look at the harbour and the crew were very informative, but because of the lack of wind we could only go under sail for a short while.

Awesome trip. Great views of the harbor and of the Opera House. Worth the money. The staff could have been friendlier.

An amasing tour. Just slowly ambelling in the harbour. Well organised and run.

My husband and I recently went out on the afternoon cruise on a very windy day, all was going well until the engine died and they had to anchor, crew did a good job and we ended up being out an extra hour and got to see the city light up which was great. Unfortunately we didn't get to sail as the winds weren't right and the light refreshments aren't very good, a bowl of chorizo's and some spinach and cheese pastries, but an enjoyable trip

not exactly as exciting as told in the write up, the kids were not involved as said, you had to be careful where you sat on deck as there was grease in spots but the crew were all lovely

We had a good time on this tour, weather luckily clear, accompanied by cold beer. After reaching the distance, engine stopped and we sail by the wind... nice quiet trip..
