The great thing about this cruise is the charming crew who take such great care of their passengers. They are just as how you would expect. Full of live and love for their job and they illustrate that passion with every turn. The sail is one part history lesson, one part booze cruise and one part gazing at the waves, the wind and the sails. The food on board our BBQ Cruise was outstanding, and being on such an old ship sailing around such a beautiful harbor was so memorable. Any question one could have about sailing was easily and wittily answered by the crew, and the relaxed vibe on the sail was a welcome reprieve from Sydney's bustling Circular Quay. For the money spent, the value of this cruise is outstanding. One of the best bargains in Australia. If you love sailing, or being on the water, make a point to book a sail, they run the best operation on the harbor. Well done mates. I can't wait to return and enjoy their special brand of Australian hospitality.
While there are lots of ways to see Sydney Harbour from a boat, doing so from a 3 mast ship is a very unique experience.
We had a wonderful time on the BBQ cruise. It was one of the highlights of our trip. We motored out for a bit, and then they dropped the sails to take us back to Sydney. It was a peaceful, beautiful trip. The crew was friendly and entertaining. The food was actually pretty good, which I frankly didn't expect. It usually isn't on these sorts of attractions. Recommended for all ages. While there were children on board who seemed to have good time, it wasn't kid focused and passengers were a nice mix of ages.
The Tour was great and the staff fantastic but the BBQ lunch was unexpected changed into a finger food lunch. Yummy but not enough to pass for lunch.
Very enjoyable. A really good way to see Sydney by water and a lot nicer than a ferry. Would definitely recommend it. The only downside I would say was the bbq, which was fine but definitely not gourmet.
Captain and crew were very friendly. Where else in the world you rather be than on a tall ship in Sydney Harbour! Awesome.
I took my boyfriend on this lunch cruise for our anniversary and his response was prawns, beer, boat, sun serenity! He absolutely loved it, and I enjoyed it myself. Highly recommend it, definitely a way to spend a nice summer's day.
Was a great trip. The kids had a fabulous time and were made to feel really special.
Unfortunately for us the rain was pouring down, although it did stop long enough for my husband to climb the mast, which he enjoyed. I would definitely recommend this but wait for a nice sunny day, we had simply ran out of time and had no choice.
Cruise and experience were great, brunch was disappointing as food ran out on table and had to wait downstairs for 20 mins for more, so missed this time enjoying open air, sightseeing and sailing. Other then that, we both enjoyed ourselves.
We were somewhat disappointed, firstly we were told the boat would sail as far as Watson Bay but dropped anchor not far from Fort Denison. Although there was not much wind, only a couple of sails were hoisted, of course this was unfortunate. The price I feel is excessive given there was one drink and a meagre lunch of sausages, salad and bread roll. Any other drinks were very expensive. All in all we spent alot for two hours and don't feel we received value for money. I'm sorry to say I would be reluctant to recommend this tour to anyone. The tickets were purchased as a birthday gift for my husband and we were both looking forward to the trip which turned out to be a let down
I found the sydney harbour cruise with the tall ship disappointing. They packed the people on, with limited seating areas. There was no commentary at all. And the most disappointing was the food. Not really worth the money.
This was a trip we looked forward to, but unfortunately was very disapointed. To start with the ship was small, but they tried to cram as many as 90 people onto it with hardly any seating space. There was no fun or atmosphere from the crew accept the feeling that they were just doing their job. The so called "B.B.Q" lunch was nothing but a cheap sausage sizzle with as supermarket instant salad thrown in with a couple of boiled prawns to add into the keeping of being on a ship! There was nothing worth being there for accept the beautiful Sydney view that we could have so easily and cheaply got by taking a ferry. Complete waste of money, and time, as we could have spent our day elsewhere instead of wasting it on that. If your going to have a ship cruise as a business put some effort into it boys!
