From here your driver-guide will transfer you to the meeting point in Cockle Bay. Board your power catamaran at the Convention Centre Wharf at approximately 12:30. A welcome drink is served during the safety briefing. Then head up the harbor and anchor in tranquil Lane Cove River to enjoy a delicious buffet lunch with complimentary drinks.
Get under way again, and cruise to Port Jackson from Cockatoo Island, sailing to the Harbour Bridge and past the iconic Opera House. Continue to Shark Island and Watsons Bay, then on to South Head. Cross the harbor for extensive views through the Heads to the Tasman Sea.
