The Hop on Hop Off Sydney Harbour Explorer cruise passes with Captain Cook range from 1 or 2 calendar days, to a single circuit, offering visitors to the city the best sightseeing cruise and value for money option on Sydney Harbour.
This unique ferry pass is a true harbour explorer, criss-crossing the harbour throughout the day and travelling between famous Sydney Harbour precincts including Circular Quay (The Rocks & Opera House), Taronga Zoo, Shark Island, Watsons Bay and Manly.
You can be sure to cover off multiple Sydney hotspots in a single day and after a huge day of exploring with a Hop On Hop Off cruise, you’ll still be ready for a lively evening at one of the many waterfront bars and restaurants on King Street Wharf, Barangaroo, The Rocks or Darling Harbour.
