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!
Hop on our tall ship and discover the sights and sounds of Sydney on a unique 'historic meets modern' harbour cruise.
Sail past the Opera house, Fort Denison, under the Harbour Bridge and 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.

“The best way to see Sydney is from the Harbour. The boat and the sails were extra special; we even had the opportunity to climb up the Mast to get an extra special view of Sydney. The staff was professional, welcoming and encouraging. Spend the afternoon with the fun crew at Tall Ships and have a ball.”
“We chose the afternoon sailing cruise and were thrilled with every moment. Sydney looks its best from the deck of a real ship, with the breeze on your face and a cool drink in your hand. We had an absolutely splendid, entertaining and interesting sailing adventure, on a great ship with a great crew!”
