This was a great way to experience Vivid. Being on a smaller boat, we were able to cruise close to many of the light installations. Seeing the Sydney Opera House sails lit up and being so close was amazing. The food was great too and the staff were very attentive. I will be definately wanting to book the same cruise for Vivid in 2017.

The views of the VIVID lighting were fantastic. The crew were friendly and generous with drinks, and the length of the cruise was just right. Only issue was the food, we had to eat off a paper napkin, and the food selection was very basic. We did enjoy it overall.

What a fantastic way to experience VIVID. Being amongst a small group of people made for a very special experience with great viewing and photo opportunities. I'd say the highlight was being in prime position to watch the Aquatique Water Theatre at Darling Harbour. Our boat was at the front of all other boats, providing the best views as we relaxed with our dinks and nibbles on the front deck. Amazing!!!!

What an amazing night. Cruising around Sydney Harbour to view the lights of Vivid. Seeing the crowds on the street am pleased we took a cruise instead this year. The staff were extremely attentive and talented, carrying a drinks tray and not spilling a drop all night ! Mathew P.

What a magical night out on the harbour seeing Vivid! The staff and captain were all welcoming and couldn't have been more attentive. We had the best view of Vivid and even managed to see the 7PM laser projection show at Darling Harbour courtesy of some very clever steering from the captain. I highly recommend this as a great way to spend some time on the harbour and see the Vivid lights. David and Paul
