If you are going to cruise around Sydney Harbour, this is the way to do it! A great experience for the whole family. Wonderful service, and such a beautiful boat
You have to do this, at least once

A great experience, friendly crew who allow you to steer the ship, assist with photos and narrate history of the ship, sailing and aspects of the ship. A nice way to sail around the harbour, under the Bridge in the quiet with no engine.
Ships Ahoy!

Howard was incredibly informative. I enjoyed the historical references to the area. He’s like an encyclopaedia - if you have a question, Howard’s the man to ask!

Captain James & the rest of the crew were all obliging & helpful.
It was a beautiful afternoon - great photo opportunities of the Harbour Bridge & the Opera House, amongst other views.

The tall ship itself has an interesting pedigree. Well worth doing.

Really friendly crew. Great views and a privilege to be aboard such an amazing ship. The mini snacks were a nice surprise.
The ship is fantastic

The ship is fantastic, and the staff act like pirates, speak like pirates. It was really a great experience to take a ship like the movies. They also served some snacks for people to consume.
Too windy to go out. But people very nice!

Well,this trip would have been a wonderful experience however we could not get out of the Harbor due to the extremely high winds and harbor traffic. The people who ran it were lovely and concerned. While we were waiting to see if the wind would subside they even passed out hot hors d’ouvres! Wish we could have rescheduled but were leaving the next morning.
