  • Sydney: Harbour Dinner Cruise with 3 or 6-Course Menu

    1. Sydney: Harbour Dinner Cruise with 3 or 6-Course Menu

    Experience a first-class dining experience aboard one of Sydney's premier vessels, the MV Sydney 2000 or John Cadman II, as you sail around a dazzling night sky or a mesmerizing Sydney Harbour during sunset (summer). Enjoy the enchanting backdrop of the Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge and savor the scrumptious choices of the 3-course a la carte meal Contemporary Australian menu and 5-star service. Once you have indulged in the fantasic cuisine on offer, enjoy the wonderful tunes provided by the live band and singer onboard from your seat or out on the dance floor! The Captains Dinner is truly the perfect choice for celebrating a special occasion or a night out for dinner in the city.

    Lovely meal with great views and very attentive waitress. Website shows meal choices which could be subject to change. However on arrival at the table it was a set menu with no choice so slightly disappointing. Fortunately after explaining I couldn’t eat the dessert I was offered an alternative. Great window table, professional and swift service.

  • Sydney: Harbour Cruise, Taronga Zoo and Sky Safari

    2. Sydney: Harbour Cruise, Taronga Zoo and Sky Safari

    Experience the most fun way to travel to Taronga Zoo and save money with a return ticket on the rocket ferry Circular Quay. Once inside the zoo, take in as many of the exhibits as you like at your own pace. Explore 10 themed areas, including Wild Australia, Wild Asia and the Great Southern Oceans. Hear talks by the zookeepers and go to interactive shows, such as the free bird show and free seal show. See native Australian animals, including koala and platypus, along with creatures from around the world such as Asian elephants, lions and giraffe. Grab some lunch at one of the many cafés, or take your own picnic and find a nice spot in the shade. Once you've had your animal fix for the day, head back to the dock and get some amazing views of Sydney on the cruise back to Circular Quay.

    The GetYourGuide deal was great value for money. Our express ferry with captain cook cruises was prompt and the staff were very friendly. It was wonderful to hear a bit of history about the harbour through the boat staff on the way over to Taronga. The express ferry had numerous return trips running throughout the day as well which was wonderful. The sky safari at Taronga also saved us a lot of time getting into the zoo, which allowed us to have a full day exploring the zoo. This deal is definitely worth purchasing.

What people are saying about Darling Harbour

An amazing experience from start to finish. Loved the boat - comfortable and stylish. Free to roam after orders had been taken, although we chose to stay on our own deck as everything we needed was there. Lovely meal and very available service staff. The chef came to meet us at the end and ask for feedback on how he could make the food better. Chatted to the captain and wait staff for quite a while. All very friendly and professional. A great price for a great day!

The whole night was awesome from the champagne upon boarding, the food throughout the night and the service and friendly professional staff. I would highly recommend this dinner cruise. Plus the amazing views and we were also treated to harbour fireworks. If we went back to Sydney we would definitely book this experience again.
