In the morning, make your own way to Darling Harbour to meet your 40-foot (12-meter) luxury cruising yacht. Your captain welcomes you aboard and provides a safety briefing before you sets off under the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
Keep your camera handy for great photo ops of the iconic Sydney Opera House and the Rocks, where the British colonists first established the colony. Then sail past Farm Cove, Mrs Macquaries Chair and Fort Denison, where convict prisoners were kept in rough conditions during colonial times.
Glide through Rushcutters Bay, passing a marina where majestic yachts are moored — many of them compete in the renowned Sydney-to-Hobart sailing race. Turn towards Sydney's exclusive eastern suburbs and view sprawling waterside mansions, then sail into Watsons Bay where your captain points out legendary restaurant Doyle's on the Beach, and the harbor’s official clothing-optional beach at Lady Bay.
Cross the entrance to the harbor to view Sydney Heads and gaze at the Pacific Ocean, then head into a protected bay in Sydney Harbour National Park. Drop anchor at gorgeous Store Beach and enjoy more than an hour there to relax and have lunch. You might take a swim, go snorkeling, try fishing, or stroll along the beach before lunch is served on board the boat. Lunch includes dishes with seafood, chicken, salads, fruit and dessert, accompanied by Australian beer or wine and soft drinks.
Throughout the cruise, your captain provides informative commentary on Sydney's history and sights. Your boat comes fully equipped with a spacious dining and lounge area, comfortable interior cabin and exterior decks, shower and toilet facilities, and safety equipment.
In the early afternoon head back to Darling Harbour, soaking up the sun and fresh air before returning to your starting point to end your 5-hour sailing cruise.

I was the only booking on this tour so I felt fortunate that it wasnt cancelled as it was my last day in Sydney. I was disappointed with the amount of sailing, most of it was under power pottering up the coast and being told about properties and owners. Im not particularly interested in celebrities so most of this was lost on me. The historic sites were of more interest and the owner/skipper was knowledgeable. Lunch was pleasant, not spectacular. Ideally more sailing for me but super to be in a boat in Sydney harbour.

The first day of poor weather in Sydney this month but a very enjoyable cruise, nevertheless. Colin has a wealth of knowledge about the history of the area, both ancient and modern. He delivers this with great humour. An excellent lunch, too, with copious amounts of wine left us feeling both stimulated and relaxed. Highly recommended!

excellent afternoon on the harbor. Leisurely and pleasant. There were only 3 of us and the captain so it was like a private charter. Captain was very knowledgeable about all the sights and told some interesting stories about the area my only thought was maybe a bit too much on the real estate prices

We really enjoyed sailing along Sydney Harbor. Weather was very pleasant, Captain Colin was very informative and continually narrated the trip, identifying historical people and places. Lunch was very good, wine was descent. Ice cold beer would have been nice. We would have preferred to do more sailing, and less motoring, really the purpose of why we chose this tour. All in all, a relaxing, informative, and enjoyable tour.

Tour would have been better if their was enough wind to sail and get a breeze. It was a hot day. We basically used the engine to idle past the shoreline the shore line and the boat captain gave a commentary.

Amazing sail with Amazing captain who was so knowledgeable about the history and homes and buildings along the coast line. Sailed into many coves and out to the heads. Enjoyed gourmet lunch with wine and a dip at Hermit's Beach!. This trip is a must for anyone wanting to get on the harbor and see the area by sailboat. Gorgeous coastal views and exhilarating ride! Would do it again in a heartbeat!!

Colin was lovely and so hospitable, very knowledgable too about the harbour and the sights.Lovely light lunch,perfect for a boat ride.
Only suggestion is that if you would like a champagne, then byo as only red, white and beers on board.
Highly recommended
Thx again Colin
