What You Can Expect

Sydney Harbour Tall Ship Lunch Cruise

Sydney Harbour Tall Ship Lunch Cruise

Make your own way to the historic Rocks district where your tall ship is docked. Your captain welcomes you aboard your ship, one of only two that remain on Sydney Harbour, which was once filled with tall ships from Europe and other parts of the globe.

During your 2-hour lunch cruise, learn about Sydney’s history and maritime traditions while sampling a delicious spread of fresh seafood or meat, vegetables and mouth-watering dessert. You can upgrade when booking to add a drinks package with unlimited beer, wine and soft drinks.

As your captain explains the ship's history, appreciate the detailed restoration work that has preserved this old wooden ship, which first set sail in the 1920s. If you'd like a more interactive sailing experience, the crew can show you how to hoist the sails or take the wheel.

Get great photo ops of landmarks including Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney Opera House and Fort Denison as you sail with your informative and entertaining crew. Upgrade to add a climb up the mast, a safe and thrilling experience that gives you the chance to gaze across the magnificent harbor from the crow's nest.

At the end of your cruise, return to your starting point in the Rocks, the historic district where Sydney started in the 1700s, a perfect spot to continue your sightseeing in Sydney.

Brilliant trip. Had the opportunity to pay extra climb the mast on the day this part wasn't available for the day we originally booked. Crew were happy for people to go where they wanted and have a go at the wheel. They were also very good at pointing out sights and giving tourist information. Lunch was also excellent and there was plenty of it.

The tall ship cruise was really nice! The crew was really nice as was the captain. The lunch they served was really tasty. BBQ chicken, pork or beef with rolls, potato salad, chick peas, salad and dessert. They even passed out canapés prior to lunch. Great way to end my holiday!

We did the all inclusive Cruise, Lunch, Mast Climb and Alcohol package. The view from the top of the crows nest was fantastic. The cruise director looked after everyones glasses without prompting. It was a special day.

Well, it is a bit like this... I sail very often, I have been out on the Soren Larsen before (many years ago in the Bay of Islands in NZ), and a number of other tall ships since.... But: Being out on Sydney Harbour on this cruise was just amazing! I have been out on the harbour many times before, bit the crew was very engaging, and the overall experience was just one of the best you could experience anywhere in the world! Relax, enjoy a glass of wine, and take in awesome Sydney Harbour surroundings. I will always treasure this shared experience!

Although our lunch trip was cancelled due to lack of numbers - we managed to rearrange for an evening sailing which was, in fact, the better sailing to go on. It was a small group on board and we saw the harbour area light up as we sailed around the harbour. We had a lovely lady singing to us and that together with the stars made for a memorable trip. My partner and I had sailed with this company 4 years ago, so can now recommend both the lunch and evening cruises.
