The Basics

Sydney Harbour is at the top of the must-see list for first-time visitors to Sydney, and the most popular way to enjoy the views is on a sightseeing cruise. Opt for a scenic lunch cruise, admire the illuminated city skyline on a romantic dinner cruise, take a whale-watching cruise, or book one with a stop at Goat Island or Fort Denison. For the most spectacular views, soar overhead on a helicopter tour, or get back to nature on a walking tour in Sydney Harbour National Park.

30-Minute Sydney Harbour Jet Boat Ride: Thunder Twist
Fantastic, pulsating "Thunder Jet" ride through the beautiful Sydney Harbour in sunny weather. Time just flies past when you're having fun! Our guide cum boat driver Justin is knowledgeable & possesses mad skills when navigating the jet. Prepared to get drenched - definitely bring extra clothes for changing. Highly recommended!

Sydney Whale-Watching Cruise
Friendly and helpful crew. The ride out was choppy and a lot of people were sea sick but we saw a few pods of whales that were very close! Overall the whole experience was worthwhile! Even my husband who was seasick say he’ll do it again!!!

Sydney Harbour Sunset Dinner Cruise
Highly recommend!!! Crew were very pleasant and helpful and the service was great. The atmosphere was perfect. Will admit that I wasn’t expecting the food to be of the standard that it was!!! Paying extra for a window table was totally worth it and going up on deck after dinner gave amazing views of the city lights. This was a perfect way to spend a winters evening in Sydney.

Sydney Harbour Ferry with Taronga Zoo Entry Ticket
Worthwhile for 1/2 day trip. Boarded at 9am and left by 1p. Zoo is small but able to see kangaroos and other animals. Best part is able to enjoy the amazing view of Sydney Opera House from atop! Would recommend.
