Sydney's harbor is not only the largest natural harbor in the world, but also arguable the most stunning. This experience will reveal the real Sydney in a way that is not possible by land.

With a small group, you'll enjoy a personalized harbour boat cruise on a small fast boat - showing you as much as possible, in style! We’ll cruise up close alongside all the iconic landmarks such as the Opera House and Harbour Bridge - you really can't take a better photo than this! You’ll see historic sites and naval dockyards as well as the opulent waterfront homes of Australia’s ‘rich & famous'. Cascading to the beach, the street side view of these homes does not reveal their true lavishness. At the Quarantine Station, you'll savor Aussie cakes, a local favorite, with a cup of tea or coffee.

Then we’ll land right on the beach at some of Sydney’s lesser known natural hideaways, and making a stop at our favorite secret spot where you can explore, stroll or swim. Throughout the day, your local guide and skipper will providing an interesting dialogue, revealing the living and working Sydney harbour for more than meets the eye. Keep your eyes peeled and you may be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of a resident penguin, seal or dolphin! Doesn't get much better than this!
