Sydney Harbour Discovery Cruise

Enjoy Sydney sightseeing and a delicious bite to eat with a stop for an island exploration on the ultimate Sydney Harbour Discovery cruise.

After conveniently departing from the Eastern Pontoon at Circular Quay, sit back and relax as your leisurely Sydney Harbour Discovery cruise begins. Take in views of Sydney’s iconic landmarks from the water, including Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney Opera House, Royal Botanic Gardens, Kirribilli House, Elizabeth and Double Bays. You will hear live commentary from your onboard crew and discover tucked-away beaches and coves where you’ll be given the opportunity to cool off at a beautiful harbour location .
On-board you will be treated to a delicious buffet for either morning tea or lunch depending on which cruise you choose.

Shark Island in Sydney Harbour National Park is positioned 1km from the mouth of Rose Bay and is a picnic spot with a difference. With its lush grassy areas, picnic shelters, spacious gazebo and amazing 360° views, the island is the perfect place to take in all that Sydney Harbour has to offer. Boasting amazing Sydney Harbour views you can explore the island’s foreshore or just relax.

Named because of its shape and not its wildlife at Shark Island, the views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House just can’t be overstated. A picnic island in the middle of the harbour – what a treat.

Please note: Shark Island may not be available at certain times of the year due to maintenance or private bookings.
