Worth the Money

"Without a doubt the funniest and most exciting thing I have done on the harbour! The boats are stable and there is a lot more room than you think in the boats! It is worth the money for sure and you will have the BEST day!"

Favourite tour in Sydney!

"I did the boat trip last weekend, and it was absolutely amazing! I never expected it to be this good! I've never seen Sydney in such a beautiful way and it was so cool to cruise around with a boat on your own. I would recommend this tour to anyone and I will definitely do it again soon. Without a doubt, this is my favourite tour in Sydney!!"
