ShoreTrips says...

This adventure on Sydney's harbor does what other tours don't - it shows you the real Sydney. Located on the stunning, tropical Pacific, Sydney's harbor is the largest natural harbor in the world which means you can't experience it all on land. So grab your sunglasses and jump on board, mate! You're in for a once in a lifetime treat.

With a small group, you'll enjoy a personalized harbor boat cruise on the Beach Explorer - a small, sleek boat that ensures the best views that Sydney has to offer. After cruising up close and personal to iconic landmarks like the Sydney Opera House and Harbor Bridge, you'll see historic sites and naval dockyards as well as extravagant waterfront mansions of Australia's 'rich & famous'. Photo opportunities from the water are unparalleled and often completely out of sight from street view!

Lunch will be at a Watson's Bay waterfront Beach Club which includes a delicious meal with wine, beer or soft drink. After this relaxing lunch with a view, you'll arrive on one of Sydney's lesser known beaches, accessible only by boat, and described by locals as a hidden paradise. Take a stroll or swim then hop back on the boat. A visit to the historic Quarantine Station and museum will completely immerse you in Sydney's history. You will also enjoy afternoon tea including coffee and Aussie cakes at the museum.

Throughout the day, your local guide and skipper will offer intriguing dialogue, revealing the living and working Sydney harbor as there is more than meets the eye. And be on the lookout - you may be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of a resident penguin, seal or dolphin!
