Massive disappointment. We did the lunch cruise to nowhere. Yes saw the Opera House and went under the Bridge but its was very average trip. Food was really basic and its only saving grace was free flowing drinks. Toilet papet ran out and there was a odd non nautical smell onboard. Some staff wete jolly othets less so. Much better...

Absolutely awful experience. We were given this as a wedding present and then booked the cruise for our anniversary. The company failed to tell us that the departure location had changed so we turned up at the wrong location. The customer service when we rang to see where the boat was was appalling and they blamed us and argued with... More

We went with a couple of US friends on a weekend in Sydney ... great value for what we got. Departed from Walsh Bay on Friday evening at 5:45 ... it's called a twighlight cruise and maybe it is in winter so bring your sunnies and maybe a hat also. It's a lovely old craft packed with character and surprisingly... More

We had the displeasure of sailing on this lovely old lady last Friday night and was left with a terrible impression. We started off with the usual banter of what a great night we are in for but as soon as we were on board the friendliness stopped. We were introduced to the captain and never seen him again that...

I went on the ship for a work Christmas party and really enjoyed the day! It was pricey but you have a great time and I enjoyed the food and drinks included! The crew were wonderful and extremely knowledgable about the ship and the harbour! We started by motoring out approx 30 mins out towards the heads before turning around,... More

Wait for Brownie it's the real highlight... This cruise was poor, I would not recommend this as a end of year company function. The music wasn't allowed to be turned up, the alcohol ran out and had very limited options which was disappointing, the BBQ is overrated. The staff were polite, but this is not a cruise where the ship... More

The "horrible" reviews were left by people who had not read the website prior to buying tickets. Read the website prior to booking. The crew were friendly and nice with a hospitable smile. The food was great with plenty to go around. I'm still dreaming about the potato salad. The mast climb is very cheap in comparison to other thrill... More

My best experience in Sydney so far! Captain Andy motored us up toward the Prime Minister's house where Kylie showed us how to set sail and that's where the magic began. The crew were all very friendly, especially Tom our host who told great stories and every now and then would break into sea shanties! The food and wine were... More

Awesome to see the city from the water! A great way to spend the afternoon. We enjoyed the informative historical presentations from the captain and crew, and lunch was quite good also. They encouraged passengers to buy the "all you can drink" wristband, but we just bought a couple of drinks onboard and saved some money. Captain gave us a... More
