Full description

Embark on a twilight cruise from Sydney Harbour. Travel on one of two tall ships; the Southern Swan, the flagship of the celebrated First Fleet Re-Enactment, or the graceful Søren Larsen, a beautifully maintained Brigantine ship that sailed from Denmark to Greenland, and through the South Pacific to Sydney. Depart from Campbell’s Cove, and sail past the Opera House, Fort Denison, Garden Island, Luna Park, and the Admiralty House before returning to stunning Sydney Harbour glistening in the twilight. On board, enjoy a delicious dinner, splendid views, and an authentic sailing experience. This Tall Ship Cruise gives you the opportunity to get involved. You are welcome to help hoist and set the sails, and even take a turn steering the ship! Or, if you prefer, sit back, relax, let the others do the work and enjoy the scenic views of Australia from the sea.

Absolutely brilliant! Even my teenagers loved it. Beautiful boat and lovely food. The host had lots of historical information about the boat and Sydney. Sailing past the Opera house and under the Harbour Bridge was breathtaking. We all agreed that it was our favourite activity in Sydney and we had a great time wandering through The Rocks area once we got off the boat. Couldn’t have been a better way to spend an evening.

The experience as a whole was amazing. Being on board a tall ship was surreal, like going back in time. Our expectations however were a bit different to reality. We thought the large sails would be opened, giving a real tall ship experience, for my husband and I. We also thought the food would be served at tables but it was a buffet setup and laps! The food was tasty, although selection limited, we understood why (small galley kitchen) and fifty/sixty people! A complimentary drink included in the package would be good and a larger piece of the delicious, out of the oven brownie would have been appreciated. I missed out on the mast climb, as I did not wear the appropriate clothes! The crew were friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. To see the harbour from the water side was brilliant. So as already mentioned it was amazing!

Absolutely fantastic, wonderful crew, food was great , really interesting info on the site seeing and the harbour was magnificent!!! When the sails were lowered it was just an incredible experience sailing back under the harbour bridge and Luna Park ... highly recommend it .. way better than expected and nothing like just doing a ferry ride ... no comparison.
