Fabulous Experience

We had a lovely afternoon sailing in the harbour. It was a truly special experience actually sailing in the tall ship, harnessing the power of the wind. The crew were terrific and the commentary very informative. Totally recommend doing this.

Tall Ships Afternoon Cruise Sydney Harbour

Had a great afternoon on the harbour on this cruise. The heritage ship was fascinating and the (mostly volunteer) crew were helpful and friendly and very passionate about the ship. The mast climb was great and we were fortunate enough to have suitable weather for hoisting the sails. Would highly recommend the cruise to anyone looking for something different to the usual run of the mill cruises.

Rainy day adventure

It was prefect cold, grey and rainy weather for our family to experience what sailing on a tall ship would be like. We wanted our children to get a small insight into the tough conditions that sailors of the past endured as they explored the globe. Except we got lovely hot canapes! Our daughters were able to climb the mast too. Probably the only improvement would be to make sure the climbing experience is not rushed at the end for the final participants, due to the crew not managing the first few climbers needs closely enough and they got stuck up the mast for a long time. Overall a lovely afternoon experience.

Fun way to cruise the harbour

We did the 90 minute cruise without the lunch. Perfect way to experience a tall ship and see Sydney from the water. Do the mast climb. Its worth it. Captain and crew were all very friendly.
