Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Make your own way to the historic Rocks district where your tall ship is docked. Your captain welcomes you aboard your ship, one of only two that remain on Sydney Harbour, which was once filled with tall ships from Europe and other parts of the globe.

During your lunch cruise, learn about Sydney’s history and maritime traditions while sampling a delicious spread of fresh seafood or meat, vegetables, and mouth-watering dessert. You can upgrade when booking to add a drinks package with unlimited beer, wine, and soft drinks.

As your captain explains the ship's history, appreciate the detailed restoration work that has preserved this old wooden ship, which first set sail in the 1920s. If you'd like a more interactive sailing experience, the crew can show you how to hoist the sails or take the wheel.

Get great photo ops of landmarks including Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney Opera House, and Fort Denison as you sail with your informative and entertaining crew.

At the end of your cruise, return to your starting point in the Rocks, the historic district where Sydney started in the 1700s, a perfect spot to continue your sightseeing in Sydney.

Very relaxing cruise
, May 2021
Craig was a fantastic host. A wealth of knowledge and very passionate about his job. Very enjoyable cruise but the lunch was a bit of a let down. Possibly need more seating or advice prior.
Well worth it

Excellent boat trip on a tall ship with friendly crew and lovely lunch.
, Mar 2019
We would really recommend this trip as it is a little different from the standard ferry type boats. It was great sailing along Sydney harbour and the tour guide was great and so was lunch. It felt like stepping back in time to sail in an old sailing ship and it was calm and steady despite a small storm. A really great experience and good fun!

Great way to tour the harbor and learn about tall ships. We had two grandsons with us who got to play with some pirate swords and also help the captain steer the boat. Captain James was wonderful and a Jim lad very engaging. I would highly re ommend this gentle sail of the harbor.
Fabulous experience

Brilliant trip. Had the opportunity to pay extra climb the mast on the day this part wasn't available for the day we originally booked. Crew were happy for people to go where they wanted and have a go at the wheel. They were also very good at pointing out sights and giving tourist information. Lunch was also excellent and there was plenty of it.
