Sunset Dinner Cruise

We like to think of our harbour as a sunset painting in progress. The aquamarine colours of Summer give way to the warm orange hues of Autumn before deepening to a magical Winter twilight blue. Year round, sun-up or sun-down, the colours of Sydney Harbour will welcome you onboard our signature Sunset Dinner Cruise. This is the perfect start to an evening or stunning end to an amazing day in the greatest city in the world.

Our harbour is a living artwork, from the sea birds that skip off the water to the endless silhouette shapes on the horizon. As we start our cruise at 5pm, the colours and magic of Sydney’s iconic landscape change by the minute. The early evening departure of our Sunset Dinner Cruise also means an early finish, making this waterfront restaurant experience the perfect option for pre-theatre dining, family groups and those wanting to wind down after a big day of exploring the city. After your à la carte meal with both seafood, steak and vegetarian options, be sure to spend some time on the outer deck and watch the sunset as a warm Sydney breeze carries you into the evening. Disembark our Sunset Dinner Cruise and meander along the harbour foreshore or enjoy a nightcap at one of the many nightclubs and bars in the city.
