What You Can Expect

Sydney Harbour Coffee Cruise

Enjoy amazing views of Sydney Harbour highlights during your cruise

Choose from a morning or afternoon departure, hop aboard your cruise boat at Sydney’s Circular Quay then head out into the harbor to begin your sightseeing tour. Your boat features comfortable and warm interior with large viewing windows, on-board bar with a good selection of drinks to choose from (own expense) and lots of outdoor space.

Stand out on the deck to admire panoramic views over Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge from your vantage point on the waves, and take the time to capture the scenery on camera. With uninterrupted views of famous waterside attractions, a harbor cruise is the perfect way to soak up the sights in style.

Gaze out over Sydney’s Fort Denison — an imposing fortress on a small island near the Royal Botanic Gardens — and learn of its fascinating past from the live on-board commentary. Admire the Garden Island Naval base, Watsons Bay and Government House, then head under the Sydney Harbour Bridge toward Goat Island and the famous Darling Harbour.

Cruise the upper reaches of Middle Harbour — where palatial waterfront homes, parks, beaches and marinas reveal Sydney's relaxed lifestyle at its best — and sip on a refreshing cup of tea or coffee on board. 

If you have chosen the Harbour Story Cruise, sit back and relax as you listen to expert commentary and the incredible stories of Sydney. You can also choose to upgrade your experience with a glass of sparkling wine and your choice of a seasonal selection of cakes, macroons or cheese as well as the choice of window seating offering incredible views.

After two hours (or 1.5 if you have chosen the afternoon departure) exploring Sydney’s famous harbor from the waves, cruise back to the city’s Circular Quay to conclude your sightseeing tour.

The Sydney Harbour Coffee Cruise was a nice relaxing tour with some good views of Sydney Harbour. A lot of good photo opportunities of the Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge from different angels/views than you'd get ashore. It was a good way to enjoy a cup of tea, juice, and light snacks on a Friday morning. I'd highly recommend this tour.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2015
