Unveil the best kept secrets of Australia’s most chic city Sydney built on the world’s largest natural harbour. This is the only Sydney Harbour cruise that allows you to explore the charming beaches and experience Sydney like never before. Sail on a small fast boat and hit the natural beauty spots with amazing photo ops, classic sightseeing and insights that you seldom hear about.

You will board your fast boat from Circular Quay and cruise up-close alongside Sydney’s iconic landmarks such as the Opera House and Harbour Bridge. Then you will cruise past historical sites, naval dockyards and luxurious waterfront homes of the rich and famous. The onboard guide will give interesting insights into the local Aussie culture and how the Sydney Harbour is a crucial part of the lives of the locals. If lucky, you may also spot resident penguins, seals or dolphins. Fingers crossed!
