High Tea Cruise

The British made High Tea famous. At Captain Cook Cruises we gave this great tradition a modern setting and created the High Tea at Sea. We’ve made it our own with pink bubbly, tiered-platters and a harbour vista that even British aristocrats would find hard to believe.

Our High Tea with a view revives and reimagines this great British tradition with a uniquely Australian twist.  This is an experience on the water which caters for girl’s weekends, kitchen teas, hen’s parties, baby showers, birthdays, charity events and more.

We start each High Tea celebration with an Australian glass of pink bubbly, followed by your choice of fine tea.

But this floating High Tea experience becomes distinctly local once the tiered-platters arrive, topped with sweet and savoury delicacies unlike any other restaurant in the city. Blinis topped with prawns, whole chocolate coated strawberries, mini savoury pastries and more. This is Sydney Harbour High Tea opulence at it’s finest - with a view.

Cruise in style with Captain Cook, feast like a Queen on a warm summer morning and bask in the spectacular Sydney skyline.
