Your yachting cruise departs from Darling Harbour and takes you under the famous Sydney Harbour Bridge. You'll be able to take photographs of the Sydney Opera House and the Rocks, the birthplace of British settlement. You'll pass Farm Cove and Mrs. Macquaries Chair and Fort Denison, where during the early days of British settlement prisoners were left to survive on only bread and water.
Turning towards Sydney's affluent Eastern suburbs, you'll sail past some of Sydney's wealthiest harbor side homes. From Watsons Bay your yacht will cross the harbor entrance and anchor for lunch at historic Store Beach surrounded by beautiful natural bushland.
While your delicious lunch of sushi, avocado and prawn salad and chicken is being prepared, take a swim to the beach, relax with a glass of Australian beer or wine or toss a fishing line over the side of the yacht. Dessert of Belgium butter biscuits, cheesecake and fruit is also served.
In the early afternoon you'll head back to Darling Harbour, soaking up the sun and fresh air after enjoying an exhilarating day on your small group sailing trip on Sydney Harbour.

The first day of poor weather in Sydney this month but a very enjoyable cruise, nevertheless. Colin has a wealth of knowledge about the history of the area, both ancient and modern. He delivers this with great humour. An excellent lunch, too, with copious amounts of wine left us feeling both stimulated and relaxed. Highly recommended!

excellent afternoon on the harbor. Leisurely and pleasant. There were only 3 of us and the captain so it was like a private charter. Captain was very knowledgeable about all the sights and told some interesting stories about the area my only thought was maybe a bit too much on the real estate prices

Amazing sail with Amazing captain who was so knowledgeable about the history and homes and buildings along the coast line. Sailed into many coves and out to the heads. Enjoyed gourmet lunch with wine and a dip at Hermit's Beach!. This trip is a must for anyone wanting to get on the harbor and see the area by sailboat. Gorgeous coastal views and exhilarating ride! Would do it again in a heartbeat!!

Thx again Colin

I was the only booking on this tour so I felt fortunate that it wasnt cancelled as it was my last day in Sydney. I was disappointed with the amount of sailing, most of it was under power pottering up the coast and being told about properties and owners. Im not particularly interested in celebrities so most of this was lost on me. The historic sites were of more interest and the owner/skipper was knowledgeable. Lunch was pleasant, not spectacular. Ideally more sailing for me but super to be in a boat in Sydney harbour.

We really enjoyed sailing along Sydney Harbor. Weather was very pleasant, Captain Colin was very informative and continually narrated the trip, identifying historical people and places. Lunch was very good, wine was descent. Ice cold beer would have been nice. We would have preferred to do more sailing, and less motoring, really the purpose of why we chose this tour. All in all, a relaxing, informative, and enjoyable tour.

Tour would have been better if their was enough wind to sail and get a breeze. It was a hot day. We basically used the engine to idle past the shoreline the shore line and the boat captain gave a commentary.

A fantastic day on the harbour and the skipper was friendly and knowledgeable. Not great value for money though.
