Sunset Dinner 5pm thumbnail

Pre-theatre dining or a great way to finish a spectacular day sightseeing. The 5.00pm departure takes in all the colours of autumn/spring sunsets, winter twilight and the endless days of summer ...

The 1 1/2 hour Sunset Cruise at 5.00pm is without doubt the best way to start your evening. The views, food and wine set the perfect atmosphere and give you a chance to wind down from the day. 

For the keen photographers, below is a rough guide to sunset times in Sydney:

  • Winter (Jun-Aug) 4.54pm - 5.37pm
  • Spring (Sep-Nov) 5.37pm - 7.51pm (note daylight savings time starts approx Oct)
  • Summer (Dec-Feb) 7.52pm - 7.33pm
  • Autumn (Mar-May) 7.31pm - 4.54pm (note daylight savings time ends approx Apr)

During this cruise you will enjoy spectacular views of the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge as we cruise main harbour. At the end of the cruise dawdle along the Darling Harbour foreshore boardwalk and enjoy a nightcap at one of the many nightclubs and bars. There is always a celebration at Darling Harbour with fireworks most weekends plus a huge range or seasonal and cultural events.

Service: Booked through the website which was very easy and the staff were great

Product: A really enjoyable few hours. The boat was lovely, the staff were great and the views were fantastic. The only thing that could have been a little better was the food but it wasn't bad, the Trout starter was very good.

Service: Ship quality a bit run down. Table was dirty. Salt dispenser dirty. Not what i was expecting for the price. Some menu items were missing ingredients (one came without carrots, the other without onions, and so on).

Product: As above: ship run down, not clean, messy service.
