Harbour Story Premium PM thumbnail

Discover Sydney’s best sightseeing cruise. The two-hour Harbour Story Premium cruise includes an entertaining, personalised commentary of the people, places and events that have made Sydney Harbour the most beautiful and exciting harbour in the world, including a glass of sparkling wine, Vittoria coffee to order, fine teas and a delicious sweet and savoury morning/afternoon tea. More Info ...

If you only have limited time in Sydney and you need to create a memory to last a lifetime, you can't go past the Harbour Story Premium Cruise. This is more than just a cruise. It's a glass of sparkling wine by the sails of the Sydney Opera House. A macchiato under the Harbour Bridge. A fine blend of tea with the rich and famous. A delicious morning or afternoon tea listening to the stories of Sydney's most amazing characters. 

The Harbour Story Premium Cruise is simply Sydney’s best sightseeing cruise. 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.  The cruise route can vary. We like to mix it up depending on what's happening on the harbour. We guarantee every cruise includes 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.  

In addition to your complimentary glass of sparkling wine, Vittoria coffee to order, fine tea and a delicious sweet and savoury morning/afternoon tea selection, there is a licensed bar with a choice of premium wines and beers available at additional price.

Service: Good introduction / commentary to Sydney's history and the role of the harbour in that history. Time was good. Our overseas relatives enjoyed it.

As locals we would suggest that
a) A better explanation of how the food would be distributed would benefit .. the food itself was tasty but a sad presentation
b) the commentary could focus on the history and less on the expensive side of Sydney (this was a disappointing perspective to be heard so many times)
c) the windows of the boat were dirty (more than just the day's cruise) making photography hard.
Product: Easy to buy online,

Did think it strange (and is it necessary) to exchange the voucher for tickets at the gate.

Excellent coffee and welcome aboard drink was a nice touch. The premium afternoon were delicious. The cruise was spectacular and the light for photos made it even better. That seniors week special was an amazing deal.
