Discover Sydney’s newest quality sightseeing cruise. This cruise includes refreshments and an entertaining, personalised commentary of the people, places and events that have made Sydney Harbour the most beautiful and exciting harbour in the world. Morning and afternoon cruises depart daily, except Sunday morning when our full breakfast cruise operates. Our tip, get up early for the morning cruise and get an extra 30 minutes cruising free!

The Harbour Story is the newest and most entertainment sightseeing cruise in Sydney. It combines the old and the new, the fun and the amazing, the sights and the characters, all told through a series of stories and insightful commentary. Learn a little, laugh a little and maybe even shed a silent tear. Most importantly you will leave feeling like a part of our Sydney family.

The cruise route can vary - we like to mix it up depending on what's happening on the harbour. We guarantee every cruise includes Sydney's iconic landmarks such as the Opera House, Harbour Bridge, Royal Botanic Gardens, Garden Island Naval base, Taronga Zoo, Government House, palatial waterfront homes, Fort Denison and much more. The pace is relaxed and gentle, giving you plenty of time to capture the perfect selfie. The Harbour Story operates on a premium sightseeing vessels which means spacious outdoor decks and expansive viewing windows from our all-weather indoor lounges.  

Unlimited self-service tea, coffee and biscuits are included in the cruise fare. The licensed bar also offers a choice of premium wines, beers, coffee to order and a selection of sweet and savoury treats.

The cruise was fine, but the morning tea was very poor for the price that you pay. If you don't drink coffee or tea, which I don't there was no other beverage to consume. The biscuit in a packet was yummy, but surely you could offer a cake too.

Service: Not really any

Product: We ordered the coffee cruise, yet the only coffee wax out of a machine and the morning tea was a biscuit. The name is very misleading. Obviously the harbour is beautiful but the inclusions were poor. The half hour dicking at darling harbour was also frustrating

Service: My overseas friends went to the top deck and could not find the exit sign or door to come down to the cabin. I went looking for them just before docking at the Darling Harbour and brought them down with me. So, it would be good if during the sail, someone could go around especially to the top deck just to check if all patrons are good staying where they are.

Product: commentary was excellent! Well done. On board biscuit could be somewhat a little improved or looking into better choice or quality.
