What You Can Expect

Sailing Day Tour on Sydney Harbour

Sailing Day Tour on Sydney Harbour

Make your own way to King Street Wharf in Darling Harbour to meet your captain for your afternoon sail around Sydney Harbour aboard a fully equipped luxury yacht.

During your 4-hour sailing tour, expect to cruise around Balmoral, Middle and North Harbour, and other scenic parts of the gorgeous and extensive harbor. Do as much or as little as you like — it's up to you. Relax on one of the spacious decks, or if you'd like to learn some sailing basics, feel free to lend a hand with hoisting the sails or perhaps help to steer your vessel.

Enjoy a light lunch of shared antipasto platters and fresh seafood, topped off by delicious King Island cheeses, seasonal fruits and a glass of sparkling wine. Have the opportunity to dive into the cool waters for a refreshing swim or just sit back and take in the stunning scenery.

Your captain ensures that you have a great day out. Hear entertaining stories of the ‘high seas’ and learn about Sydney's history and iconic sights including the Sydney Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge, Fort Denison and more. Your captain also gives you the inside scoop on where to get the best photo opportunities. It's a fantastic way to experience this harborside city.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2016

The tour was wonderful and relaxing. Tony showed us around the Harbour and talked to us about the sights. He was an excellent guide, allowed us to have a try at sailing and shared the beauty of the harbour with us. This is not a loud party boat but a relaxing tour around the Harbour that is good for the soul!!

It was Just Great. Toni is a very good Host and Captain on the Boat. I would do the Trip again and recommend to everybody.

Even as a small group this was enjoyable even if we didnt have enough wind to puff out those sails, but the sails did come up even for a short time. It was lots of fun and would do it again

We had a fantastic time! Tony the captain was fantastic - so knowledgeable about local history and the local environment. Loved his stories. Loved not being on a big boat with hundreds of other people. The best afternoon I have ever had in Sydney. 5 stars is not enough.
If you are interested in doing this trip then i recommend being brave enough to jump off the boat and have a swim in the harbor - so refreshing and so much fun.

What a lovely day. We were lucky enough to have the whole boat to ourselves for the half day sailing trip round sydney harbour. boat collected us from darling harbour and our skipper was friendly and informative. we would recommend this trip for the price in comparison to others we had seen.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better April 2016

The tour guide was nice, and made the trip pleasant. My problem was with the yacht. It was so small. There were no seats, just rock hard benches that doubled as steps up to the deck - no cushions at all. When things got rough, you had to hang on for dear life because you'd slide off the bench. Not in any way a LUXURY yacht. Unlike the description, no lunch or wine was provided, although the captain did offer to pull in to a little dock where we could go to a restaurant, which we declined. Disappointed.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this May 2015

I cant actually review something it didn't happened! Have tried to contact both companies and none of them have got back to me! My tour was booked for the end of February, and surprisingly we got to the wharf to find no one there! Quite disappointed and $350 (2 people) poorer.
