Exploring the Harbour
Shelley_W, Mar 2023
A wonderful way to really explore the many coves within the harbour particularly as the boat can get in so close.
Enjoyable, interesting cruise with Zane. Fantastic experience.
Richard_B, Mar 2023
Wonderful trip around the harbor (aka harbour) with Zane. We selected this tour because of their focus on smaller groups and that decision was spot-on. We had a calm, sunny day and the small group (6 people) allowed for detailed and interesting conversation from our guide. Also great fun to interact with other members of the group. An excellent day - would highly recommend.

My first private boat cruise… and it was fantastic. I enjoyed it very much. Els was absolutely brilliant, kept us well entertained and had a lot of good knowledge to pass over. I would definitely book over and over again,
Best tour of Sydney Harbour Real Estate
Nathan_S, Dec 2022
This experience allowed us to see the best of the harbour but also our tour guide gave us some great insight to some of the most exclusive Sydney real estate. You have to do this!

Best Small Group Experience
Kimberly_G, Mar 2019
This was a wonderful way to experience the Harbour and see some areas outside of Sydney. It was great to stop at the beaches and see where immigrants came through and where the penguins burrow. Also enjoyed seeing all the beautiful homes along the waterfront!!
Fantastic Afternoon - Enjoying Sydney Harbour
Wendy_S, Feb 2019
My sisters and I had an enjoyable afternoon on our tour. Elody was a great tour guide. We enjoyed the small group setting with a max of 16 on the tour. This is a must when visiting Sydney. You get to see so much more of the small bays and learn the history of Sydney.
This was a great tour, got to see...
Paul M, Apr 2018
This was a great tour, got to see the main highlights of the harbour and some that you would not see on the bigger boat cruises. Great experience being able to hop on and off the boat onto the beach at the 3 stops. 20 minutes at each stop was a bit short though, it would be good if the tour was increased by 1/2 an hour to allow an extra 10 minutes at each stop.
