Sydney Harbour Afternoon Tall Ship Discovery Cruise
From US$36.86
Overview
See a different side of Sydney Harbour from the deck of a traditional tall ship that dates back to the 1920s on a 1.5-hour cruise ideal for visitors with limited time. This tour allows you to lend the crew a hand while sailing around Fort Denison, Sydney Opera House, and the Sydney Harbour Bridge for up-close and unobstructed photo ops. Plus, seafaring history buffs will love going deep into Sydney's maritime history through guide commentary.
What to Expect
After stepping aboard your ship in the historic Rocks neighborhood, check out its detailed restoration work and learn about the 1920s-era tall ship through a guide's commentary. Besides getting out on Sydney Harbour to see the sights up close, you'll have the added benefit of sailing on an actual piece of history, which you'll learn more about as you travel. 

Pass under the Sydney Harbour Bridge and by the Sydney Opera House while listening to information about Sydney's history. History buffs will love delving deep into the city's rich maritime history, and adventurous travelers can help the crew steer the ship. Other highlights include Sydney Harbour National Park, Fort Denison, and Shark Island. If the sea winds wake your appetite, rest assured that light snacks and refreshments are served on board.
