Sunset Dinner 5pm thumbnail

Dine on Sydney Harbour and experience all the colour of autumn/spring sunsets, winter twilight or the endless days of summer on the 5pm Sunset Dinner Cruise. Start your evening with a glass of sparkling wine and a mezze plate to share, followed a choice of mains and desserts, with wine and beer included.

The Sunset Dinner departs at 5pm for a 1 ½ hour cruise of Sydney Harbour including beer, wine and soft drinks. The early evening start means an early finish, making this cruise the perfect option for pre-theatre dining, family groups and those wanting to wind down after a big day in the city. 

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) 

Enjoy spectacular views of the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge as we cruise the main harbour. At the end of the cruise meander along the Darling Harbour foreshore and enjoy a nightcap at one of the many nightclubs and bars or catch the fireworks in Cockle Bay most Saturday nights.

Service: We loved our Sunset Cruise.

We had our 3 primary school aged children with us who all enjoyed the food and experience. The length of the cruise was just the right amount of time for the children.
The service was excellent. Our staff member was very pleasant and attentive.
Product: We thought the cruise, meal and drinks was great value for money. The only aspect that could have been improved was a slightly more substantial entree.

This cruise was amazing, food, table service and even the AC was perfect to a T! Thanks for a great afternoon my bf and I had so much fun!

Service: Initial service was poor. We were not offered drinks, and were not served drinks for at least 20-30 minutes after arrival, despite asking multiple waitresses, whose attention it was hard to get. This was frustrating, given the short length of the cruise. Food was served in a timely manner and waitresses were friendly.
Product: Enjoyable experience, would recommend, however would not call it a sunset cruise as the sun was no where close to setting at this time (in summer).

Service: Very helpful and accommodating. Nothing was too much trouble. Changed my tickets over several times due to a family member bring delayed by trains. Great experience on board. Overseas guests were very impressed and grateful for the experience.
Product: Entrees was plain nothing exciting. Main meal was good. Desert was excellent. Very fast paced and the waiter assigned to us kept mixing up the drink orders.

Yes I would buy from them again. The service was good but I would have loved a cup of coffee to finish dinner with though I do realise that time as an important factor to them
