A little disappointed...
Mike
, Feb 2020
We were unfortunately left a little disappointed by our recent experience. The boat was just shy of fully capacity which meant that it was a scramble for seats out the front of the boat, resulting in us sitting on the flooring for the duration of the cruise. Secondly, despite being billed as an hour-long cruise, the boat didn’t dock until 8:20pm, and at a different location to that specified on our ticket! This would have been good had we not had plans immediately afterwards. Finally, our ticket advertised a free soft drink and snack platter, however this only materialised at 7:50pm when a guest questioned where it was. However, BYOB was a perk (plastic cups are provided onboard) and definitely made the cruise more enjoyable. Despite the above, we still had a good time, saw some great sunset views and managed to get some good photos around Sydney harbour.

Thank you for your feedback. We are glad to hear that you had a good time and enjoyed the views of Sydney Harbour. The vessel that this experience is taken on is a sailing catamaran that has a casual layout on board. Passengers can move around while on board and the layout of this vessel allows for 360-degree views of the harbour. As the cruise is hosted in a casual style, there is no set seat for passengers on board, and the seating is a mix of saloon-style seats, cushions and netted areas - this is the style of the vessel, this is not due to the number of guests on board. As this is an outdoor activity each experience does differ slightly as it can be impacted by weather. The crew’s priority onboard is to deliver a safe and comfortable experience for all and the elements can change the way the cruise is delivered. On the evening that you cruised with us, there were some winds that came about while on the boat, and so the skipper needed to adjust the speed and route of the vessel to ensure a safe and comfortable experience. When winds are about, the vessel does need to cruise with caution, and this is just one of the reasons why we advertise the cruise as “a relaxed 1 hour”, as there are so many external factors that impact on the cruise duration. Nevertheless, the cruise returned to the wharf later than planned, giving passengers more time to enjoy the harbour views and more value. The decision to dock the vessel at an alternate wharf (merely 400m from the original location) was also made by the skipper on the day, to ensure safe disembarking of all passengers. This was a location closer to public transport and restaurant venues, and passengers were informed of this change on the day. The nibbles are served on board at varied times, pending on the route and conditions on the water. The crew determine when they feel they are in an area with calmer water. While we appreciate your feedback, we do hope you can understand that logistics for an experience on a vessel work differently to that on land, and the crew adapt the cruise to suit the evening, however, safety and comfort will always be the priority.

We had a lovely cruise through Sydney harbour. The crew was amazing with their commentary as well as their willingness to accommodate photos etc. The charcuterie board was a nice touch

Don’t bother

The captain offered to answer any questions but it would have been nice to receive a commentary of the history and names of the sights as we passed. We cruised in silence instead

The sunset cruise that is offered as a relaxing harbour cruise on Sydney Harbour that includes nibbles and the option to BYO drinks, and the highlight is the stunning harbour views. Generally, it does not include a guided tour of the harbour, and the product description does not advise that this included, however the crew will endeavour to provide information on the harbour where possible. It is a shame that you had alternate expectations when boarding the vessel. As guests onboard are a mix of locals and visitors, not all on board wish to hear commentary of the harbour, hence the reason why the crew encourage questions if there is information you would like to know. The crew are always happy to have a chat with guests and provide them with further information on request. There is background music playing and guests onboard tend to mingle with each other also. We hope you enjoyed the views while on board, as cruising Sydney Harbour is often a once in a lifetime opportunity for many Sydney visitors.

Enjoyable, Informal Alternative Sydney Harbour Cruise

Our group had an enjoyable evening. An intimate cruise of Sydney Harbour during sunset on a catamaran. BYOB, snacks provided by crew. A wonderful and refreshing alternative to the larger and formal dinner cruises offered.

Perfect evening. 28 degrees in the day. Stunning views. Great crew. Lovely boat. Well worth this trip. Would recommend to everyone not just tourists. Softer music would have been a bonus played on the boat, given the setting but I really enjoyed the beautiful breeze, sunset and magical setting. Very good value for money. Thank you.
