Full description
Hop on a tall ship and discover the sights and sounds of Sydney on a unique historic-meets- modern harbor cruise. Sail past the Opera House and Fort Denison, as well as under Harbour Bridge, as you enjoy a 90-minute sailing experience on board the 1850s style wooden tall ship. Get involved and make the most of this interactive, unique cruise. Try your hand at steering, or help with the sails. If you'd like to heave on a rope, you can. Otherwise, simply sit back, relax, and enjoy the entertainment provided by your friendly crew. You will get to hear some of Sydney’s rich history and tales of Sydney’s only authentic timber tall ships. You will feel like you are being transported back to days gone by, and will be able to say you know what it was like for the sailors of yesteryear. Make sure to bring your camera to capture the best of Sydney Harbour. And expect to be the subject of many a happy snapping tourist, delighted at the sight of your tall ship in Sydney Harbour.

The whole experience was such a thrill - we loved the welcome aboard and humour of Jim-boy - he’s a natural to put people at ease ! We had a lovely day for it and saw the best of Sydney from the water ! Me & my grand daughter enjoyed it sooooo much !

We had an awesome afternoon sailing today. Crew were all lovely, knowledgeable and did their best to make us comfortable and included in the day. Already planning another day out with family and friends. Special mention to Jim (Jim lad) for all his interesting information and friendly fun nature. And the dancing. Can’t forget the dancing!

A unique opportunity for non sailors and families to get the feel of being “before the mast” when convicts were sailed out to the great southern land. Cheerful crew under a Kindhearted skipper made this a memorable outing while showing the challenges in raising sail and making way.A unique opportunity to steer a tall ship and climb the mast etc .
