The cruise sails a little away in the ocean and gives you amazing views of the Opera House, Harbour Bridge and the Sydney skyline. The tall ship stops after a 30 mins sail and then the lunch is served while you enjoy the views of one of the most visited cities in the world,

It was disappointing to receive an email with a new docking information 5 minutes prior to sail time. It was a trip with my elderly parents who would not be able to run/walk the 15 minutes to the new location, not that it would matter if they could as the boat left anyway

This is a great cruise, fun and relaxing. The crew are very nice and knowledgeable about the sites we pass. We didn’t have much wind but we still tried to sail. Climbing the mast looks like heaps of fun for the more adventurous. Would suggest this for everyone.
