What You Can Expect

Seafood Buffet Lunch Cruise on Sydney Harbour

Seafood Buffet Lunch Cruise on Sydney Harbour

Make your way to either Circular Quay or King Street Wharf to board your cruise boat around mid-day.

The spacious vessel features interior dining rooms and exterior decks with clear views of the city and harbor. You have the choice to either take the best available seat for the day of your tour, or to upgrade for guaranteed seating next to the large viewing windows.

As your boat glides past iconic sites such as Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House, your captain shares entertaining and insightful commentary about Sydney and its landmarks. Keep your camera handy for great photo ops from the water.

The buffet lunch tantalizes your tastebuds with a menu of delectable local seafood like fresh-caught ocean king prawns, rock oysters, mussels and seasonal fish, along with crisp salads, succulent desserts and Australian cheeses. Non-seafood mains come with a variety of vegetarian or meat dishes. (Sample menu under Itinerary below.)

If you’d like to include alcohol with your meal, upgrade to the Bar Package, which offers premium Tyrrell’s white and red wines, Tyrrell’s sparkling wine, Tooheys New draught beer and sodas. Additional drinks are available for purchase from the boat’s cocktail decks.


Customer Reviews


5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2018

It was a hot and steamy day when we walked the wharf to board the lunch cruise. although we had every intention of roaming around on the top level outside in order to take pictures in Sydney Harbour it was just too hot. We had window seats at our table and the windows were clean enough to get terrific photos where we sat. I highly recommend paying the extra charge to get that window table if you're anticipating taking photos. Not necessary if you're simply there for the food and ambiance. The food was fresh, flavourful and lots of variety for every picky eater. Booking through Viator made this special event such an easy process.

OMG, we enjoyed our This Harbor Cruise which was done by Captain Cooks! The food was fanastic we didnt go on the cruise with high expectations on the food and we were blown away. There is a full bar so you can purchase anything you want or purchase the wine and beer package. The harbor is beautiful and is a mianstay of Sydney. Highly recommend this tour!

This was a fantastic Buffett. Great choice. Not too many couples so we had loads of room. Longer cruise than the evening one so we would say we enjoyed it more.

Really good tour! The boat was beautiful and the crew were so friendly and helpful - and looked striking in their uniforms too. The buffet lunch was nothing less than excellent! Plenty of choices, plenty of food and something to suit everyone's palette. And absolutely delicious too. Would definitely recommend this trip around the fabulous Sydney harbour. So glad we did it!

Among the Sydney Harbor cruises, this one stands above the rest. The vessel is modern and immaculate, the staff is friendly and attentive, the narration is excellent, the pace is leisurely, and the food is delicious and varied.
