We joined the 2 hour evening sail and had a fantastic time. The crew were lovely, view were beautiful and food was delicious. Everyone in our party agreed. It’s a really great way to see Sydney Harbour and learn about the history of the area.

All smooth sailing as our company team of 7 enjoyed the glistening waters and spectacular views of Sydney Harbour. Fun, friendly crew provided interesting and informative commentary throughout the 90 minute tour. Highly recommend for both visitors and Sydney locals or a company team outing.

The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and
sailors from the old nation. As the oldest
neighbourhood in the city, the area's cobblestone
streets host more than 100 heritage sites and
buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney,
Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi
“ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the
waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The
