Sunset dining to dazzle the senses

Sunset on Sydney Harbour is a sublime experience. We like to think of our Harbour as a sunset painting in progress where the magical colours of Sydney’s iconic landscape change by the minute. Add quality dining and and a snapshot of Vivid Lights as they turn on at 6pm and you have an impressive early dinner experience.

The Vivid Sunset Dinner cruise departs at 5.00pm (boarding from 4.45pm) and is perfectly timed for sunset that cascades over the harbour sky between 5.19pm and 5.34pm. Time to relax and enjoy the quality dining experience before the second big reveal of the night – `lights on’ for Vivid Sydney at 6.00pm at Circular Quay. After your cruise meander along the boardwalk to Cockle Bay and immerse yourself in the light installations.
