Step aboard an 1850s-style tall ship and experience the unforgettable thrill of cruising on Sydney Harbour!
If you're short on time or looking for a great and affordable way to make the most of an hour and a half on Sydney Harbour, then this tour is for you. Departing from Campbell's Cove, you'll cruise past Sydney Opera House, Fort Denison, under the Harbour Bridge and enjoy a real sailing experience.
Hear about the amazing story of Sydney's only authentic timber tall ships Southern Swan or the beautiful Soren Larsen. You will get the opportunity to help hoist and set the sails – a truly unique part of your experience aboard a tall ship. Watch as the wind fills the sails and feel its strength carry the ship across the harbour. The moment the wind takes over and the sound of the engine fades away is like stepping back in time – an experience thousands of sailors across the ages have felt, as they stood on a tall ships deck.
If you'd rather leave hoisting sails to the others, you can simply sit back, relax and enjoy the entertainment provided by the friendly crew. Or upgrade to climb the mast on a tall ship to enjoy the ultimate views of Sydney Harbour.
