Harbour Story Premium AM thumbnail

Sydney Harbour sightseeing at its very best. The Harbour Story Premium is more than just a cruise. It's a glass of sparkling wine by the sails of the Sydney Opera House. A machiatto under the Harbour Bridge. A fine blend of tea with the rich and famous. A delicious morning tea listening to the stories of Sydney's most amazing characters. The Harbour Story Cruise offers an entertaining, personalised commentary of the people, places and events that have made Sydney Harbour the most beautiful and exciting in the world, with premium inclusions. Morning and afternoon cruises depart daily, except Sunday morning when the full breakfast cruise operates ...

Experience the most beautiful harbour in the world, aboard premium vessels specially designed for Sydney, all accompanied a glass of sparkling wine, coffee to order, fine teas and a delicious sweet and savoury morning tea selection. If you only have a morning in Sydney, and you need to create a memory to last a lifetime, you can't go past the Harbour Story Premium. 

The Harbour Story is the newest and most entertaining 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. The licensed bar also offers a fine selection of premium wines, beers and soft drinks.

Service: Beautiful weather (which helps) and a first class commentary really set this harbour cruise apart. My wife's brother was visiting from England and he was absolutely delighted with the cruise, as were my wife and I. Full marks to Captain Cook Cruises for a wonderful time on the harbour and a first class experience.

Product: Excellent experience, a wonderful commentary and very good value.

Service: Purchased our Harbour Cruise on-line the night before the trip. It can be very busy at the ferry office so it may be best if you can do this - we also got a great deal for premium this way. Service on-board was really good and the lady giving the history as we cruised was very good!

Product: Great way to see lots of the areas in the harbour - wish I had take the cruise earlier in my visit to Sydney as the great information given would have helped in deciding what to see on the ground! Great views of the Opera House & Bridge for all those selfies!! Morning cruise was not over crowded - perfect

I was impressed with the information given during the cruise. I would like to have seen a little more personal service as far as food and beverages were concerned but this is a small matter compared to the overall cruise.
