Full description
Hop on a tall ship and discover the sights and sounds of Sydney on a unique historic-meets- modern harbor cruise. Sail past the Opera House and Fort Denison, as well as under Harbour Bridge, as you enjoy a 90-minute sailing experience on board the 1850s style wooden tall ship.

Get involved and make the most of this interactive, unique cruise. Try your hand at steering, or help with the sails. If you'd like to heave on a rope, you can. Otherwise, simply sit back, relax, and enjoy the entertainment provided by your friendly crew.

You will get to hear some of Sydney’s rich history and tales of Sydney’s only authentic timber tall ships. You will feel like you are being transported back to days gone by, and will be able to say you know what it was like for the sailors of yesteryear.

Make sure to bring your camera to capture the best of Sydney Harbour. And expect to be the subject of many a happy snapping tourist, delighted at the sight of your tall ship in Sydney Harbour.

The crew was wonderful. We had problems getting to the pier & arrived after the gangplank was lifted. They saw us running, waited for us, then lowered the gangplank so we could board. They had tried to call us twice but my phone wasn’t working. They ere so gracious about our mistake.

The trip was excellent, worth every cent, the captain and crew where very knowledgable about the history of the Sydney Harbour and surrounding Bays. They past on all the local native and early settlers tales and customs, like talking history books and you got to see the places they were telling you about first hand. With the knowledge they past on you could imagine what it was like when the first settlers came into port or Captain Cook first came to shore centuries ago. The whole experience was magical and a must do when in Sydney
