Five of the best Sydney Harbour cruises

Sydney’s most stunning natural asset is its shimmering harbour and no visit to the city would be complete without spending some time on the water. Here are five fabulous Sydney Harbour cruises.

1. Sydney Harbour BBQ Lunch Cruise and Optional Island Visit

Explore amazing Sydney Harbour and enjoy a tasty BBQ buffet lunch on this great value afternoon cruise, which stops at picturesque Shark Island (named by the First People for its shape, not because of anything to be found in the surrounding waters!). There you’ll have the option to go snorkelling or just cool off with a refreshing dip. This cruise is a relaxed way to experience the magic of Sydney’s famous waterway.

Featured Guest Review:

The check-in procedure was very easy. The information given by the captain was excellent, and the food was surprisingly good for a BBQ buffet on a boat! Definitely good value for money. KF68 (via TripAdvisor)
