Sydney's best sightseeing cruise has just got even better! The Harbour Story Premium Cruise offers an entertaining and personalised commentary of the people, places and events that have made Sydney Harbour the most beautiful and exciting in the world, with premium inclusions. 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 afternoon tea listening to the stories of Sydney's most amazing characters. Morning and afternoon cruises depart daily, except Sunday morning when our full breakfast cruise operates ...  

If you only have an afternoon in Sydney, and you need to create a memory to last a lifetime, you can't go past the Harbour Story Premium. 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 afternoon tea selection.

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: Cruise was lovely as usual. The harbour story premium states that you will receive a plated afternoon tea along with a premium tea or coffee. We have done this cruise before and that was what we got. However on this cruise, there was no allocated seating and no plated afternoon tea or someone to take coffee orders. Instead we went to the bar and got a boxed afternoon tea and drink. Although the cakes were very nice, it is not the same experience as someone taking your coffee order and serving you a nice plated afternoon tea. This was a bit disappointing as we were expecting the same service that we had previously experienced and was stated on our booking form.

Product: Please see previous comment.
