Service: we have been on your Boxing Day cruises now for many years - a family tradition you might say. This was our 4th Race to Bondi. Love the new bigger ferry and the lady commentator was the best yet.
Product: As above - the best day out yet

Very personalised service from their General Manager down - specially on Boxing Day. I've always appreciated the service and collaboration received from Captain Cook Cruises.

Well organised - excellent boat and helpful commentary. A wonderful experience.

The only thing I would change is more detail around the cruise prior to departure. (ie it's billed as a picnic tour but there is seating only no tables, drinks able to be bought on board) No issue with either of these but helpful to know.

Excellent, our 3rd year running and the best yet. Slightly confusing being diverted via Manly, would have appreciated prior warning.

Service: Nice cruise out on the harbour & beyond. Unadvertised beer fridge & a couple of packets of chips was a bonus.

A bit ahead of the race pack, given that it was going to be a slow start I would have preferred to be closer to the action & not first out of the heads. Very cautious skipper tho. Nice to have a reasonably new ferry & punctual departure.

May go with Capt'n Cook again, maybe not. Done 5 Boxing Days on your ferries.
Product: Not cheap - but I paid for the pleasure.

I had an amazing experience with Captain Cook Cruises as I was planning to see Sydney to Hobart Race for a while and then on the race day I had to see a dentist due to an emergency. I have missed the boat for a couple of minutes but their lovely staff have offered me another cruise departing half an hour later and due to my emergency they haven’t charged me any extra. A guide on the tour gave us a lots of interesting information about the race in general and favourites. Not to mention that the race leaving Harbour was fantastic, full of adrenaline!

It was brilliant - loved the commentary - as much as we were familiar with Sydney Harbour and the Sydney to Hobart we still gleaned some interesting facts
