Afternoon Discovery Cruise

Only in Sydney for a short time? Looking for a great and affordable way to make the most of an hour and a half on the harbour? Then this experience is for you!

Board one of our traditional tall ships Southern Swan or the impressive Soren Larsen and discover the sights and sounds of Sydney on a unique ‘historic meets modern’ harbour cruise.

Sail past the Sydney Opera House, Fort Denison, under the Harbour Bridge and (if conditions permit) enjoy a real sailing experience on a 1850s style tall ship.

Get involved and make the most of this interactive, unique Tall Ship Cruise. Try your hand steering or help with the sails. You’ll be transported to the days gone by and be able to say you know what it’s like for the sailors of yester-year.

If you’d like to heave on a rope, you can otherwise simply sit back, relax and enjoy the entertainment provided by our friendly crew.

Make sure to bring your camera, as this is an opportunity to see the best of Sydney Harbour. You will love the views of this vibrant city from the unique perspective aboard our authentic timber tall ship.
