      Awful cruise
      Truly dreadful...700+ people herded on to ship for VIVID Sydney. Questionable safety brief then zero commentary for the cruise...ie where to view drone show. Epic fail! Noted I have also been blocked from social media. Suggest avoid Captain Cook

      Fantastic Cruise and value for money
      Really hospitable cruise we had 2 children in a pram (toddler and baby) and the staff accommodated us to be able to use pram on boat tour. Food and service was excellent had the 2 course deluxe.

      Family Day at the Zoo
      Great Zoo for big and little kids to enjoy. We were a group of 4 adults and we all enjoyed the ferry ride and zoo very much. We arrived at 9:30am and the first return ferry back with this pkg wasn’t until 1:10pm. We were all done by 11:30am so we chose to purchase a separate ferry ticket back.

      Lack of transparency and integrity
      Booked a vivid lights harbour cruise Text confirmed cruise and departure wharf, cruise went out. No announcements, no updates of any concerns. As the ending time for the cruise was nearing, without any vivid lights on, the captain announced there were no lights and it was out of their control. No apology, no acknowledgement of the inconvenience or situation just a referral to the vivid website. Yes the lights may have been out of their control but the lack of integrity in managing the situation was astounding. The situation was clearly known before the announcement (substantial time elapsed since the lights were meant to have started). There was a clear decision to not be transparent about the situation. Even more disappointingly the next cruise was lined up on us disembarking, at which time the cruise provider knew there were no lights. The next group were not told and were standing in the rain awaiting the boat to go see non-existent lights. No refund offer as the cruise was technically completed. No communication at all so that people could make a decision on what was best in their interest (a dark night cruise in the rain with an anticipating preschool age kid was not something we would’ve wasted our time with, we would’ve happily just stayed and had dinner elsewhere with a much more positive experience for the transparency). There was not even an acknowledgement of the fact we had booked a vivid cruise without there being any vivid to see, with crew announcing ‘we hope you enjoyed your cruise’. Yes the Situation couldn’t be helped but the way it was managed was not a good representation of company brand or integrity. Definitely would not book with them again.

      Amazing Vivid Sydney Penfolds Dinner Cruise
      We booked this dinner cruise due to the Penfolds pairings and it did not disappoint. We had hearty pours of lovely wine with each course and our wait staff was quick with refills any time glasses were empty, to include the higher end wines such as the St Henri served with our steak (filet mignon) course. All of the food was quite good as well and the portions were large enough that we felt full but not so large that we wasted a lot of food. We were upgraded from the normal boat to the Jackson, which had an elegant feel, and the live music and magical lights of Sydney Harbour during Vivid added to the lovely ambiance. All in all an outstanding evening for a quite reasonable price given the quality and quantity of all that was included.

      Fab cocktail cruise!
      It was an excellent cruise and very well organised. The platter of cheese and crackers was great, but the cocktails were only average. We were on the ground floor and managed to get a window seat with fantastic views, it did get dark very quickly - so the trip back was just twinkly lights, but we still managed to catch all the sights.

      FANTASTIC EXPERIENCE
      We did the Lunch time Sydney Harbor Cruise. It was excellent, our 3 course lunch was delicious, fresh & beautifully presented. Drinks are well priced. Wait staff were friendly & helpful. Highly recommended when in Sydney.

      Decent exposure to the harbor
      Fairly inexpensive way to get a taste of Sydney harbor. More of a transport than sightseeing ad the boat moves fairly fast and you must be ready for the iconic views.

      10/10 from me 🍷
      The Food and Wine was delicious, however Ankit has to have a special mention for his professional mannerisms and etiquette. I truly didn’t feel like I was dining alone. My fellow diners were wonderful as well. Thank you for a memorable evening, Olivia

      Beautiful Zoo!
      LOVED the zoo. I was so happy to see the koalas. And the views from the zoo are incredible. Great food options, and close to the beach, if you want to hit up both on one trip. The ferry ride was great - on time, no problems at all. Would love to go back!

      Best views of Sydney .
      A lovely way to see Sydney Harbour and all that it has to offer. Hop on and off as many times as you like or stay as long as you like. The views of the city, opera House and Harbour Bridge are just amazing from the water. Highly recommend.

    I wish I could leave zero stars. Between the two days the staff has stemmed from being simply unhelpful to outright rude - between telling us our tickets needed to be printed out and then leaving the dock as we were coming back down the gangway to leaving other porta before the scheduled times to unprofessional people working behind the counter. I understand they are on a timetable and deal with tourists all year so they have low tolerance for hiccups and need to stay on schedule but I have never been treated so poorly but a company that specializes in customer service in my life. Use another company. There are better options that wont take your money and treat you like dirt afterwards.

    The worst tourist trap. To expensive for nothing, wifi didnt work qr code didnt work, screen didnt work. No serving on the boat. Cashier fooled us and said that it was a total harbour trip. Regular trips to Manley is better. Avoid this!!
