About Sydney Harbour Cruises
Sydney's famous harbour is the gem in the city's crown, and it's not hard to see why; home to numerous examples of wonderful architecture as well as a wonderful open outlook and great sunsets, the port has helped put the city on the international map. As a result, harbour cruises are one of Sydney's most popular activities for visitors, as they allow travellers to take in the city skyline and its famed landmarks from an entirely different angle.
Sydney Harbour is almost eternally busy, and cruises are a large reason for this, as there are a huge range of options for those wanting to explore the city by water. Vessels range in both size and style, with variations including large, modern catamaran-style boats that conduct the likes of lunch, dinner and sunset cruises, to vintage Age-of-Sail-era tall ships that take passengers back to the glory days of marine navigation.
Topping all of these off are a number of special event cruises that occur annual in Sydney - notably cruises for the spectacular lightshow, the Vivid Festival, as well as cruises for one of the world's most famous New Years's Eve celebrations: Sydney's NYE fireworks. Regardless of your choice of watery adventures, taking a day to explore Sydney Harbour on the water is an essential on any Sydney sightseeing itinerary.
