Jim, captain James and crew. Great afternoon of portering around the Harbour. My 7 yo nephew Leo was so happy to be able to have a go at steering the ship. The experience overall was just the right amount of time for a young boy's attention span. Thanking you for helping me make my Aunty's weekend memorable for him.

Great way to see the different sights of the harbour. Have a wine and set sail past Kirribilli House, Opera House and under the Sydney Harbour bridge. Definitely climb up to the crows nest. Well worth it. Andrew was a great host.

From the moment we walked on board the experience began. Harry and Andy were so welcoming, friendly and very knowledgeable. We had a tour of the ship including the engine room and given the opportunity to climb the Mast which we declined. We headed east to Bradley Head using the motor then returned under sail, it was the best experience so quiet, watching the sights of Sydney Harbour pass by. During the sail lovely hot finger food was served and drinks were available. We'd really like to thank Harry and Andy for a wonderful afternoon, we will be back again. We highly recommended this Tall Ship Experience, don't miss it.
PS. Andy, I'll keep these Cats' going......

An excellent way to enjoy Sydney Harbour. My wife, step-daughter and I booked this cruise as a way to spend a couple of hours while in Sydney for the day. We were sent a confirmation text in the motioning with the departure location and time making it very easy to get there on time. It seemed like a shipload of people were waiting to board but once everyone was on board it was quite comfortable and not squashy like I was imagining it was going to be. The crew were very pleasant and most helpful. The host/guide for the afternoon was Andrew and I cannot fault his knowledge and presentation. I learnt a few new things from his talks and even got to help hoist one of the sails. We chose not to participate in the mast climb but the opportunity was available. The cruise was really relaxing and enjoyable. My only negative for the whole trip was that it was advertised that light refreshments was included. I was humoured when offered a patty case with three slices of chorizo sausage and a toothpick. This was all that was offered. I had had a big lunch so wasn’t hungry at all but thought some people would probably expect more. Drinks including alcohol were available on board but as were were out for the whole day I had my own small esky bag with soft drinks which the crew were not concerned about. Other than that one point, I thought the whole cruise was great and would highly recommend it. I booked through Viator and didn’t see any opportunity to use them but please know you can use your Discover NSW vouchers with this cruise. (You may have to enquire how to do this.)

It’s was great but as a carer for a legally blind person I had to pay for my ticket so I’m not impressed
