Full description
Hop on a tall ship and discover the sights and sounds of Sydney on a unique historic-meets- modern harbor cruise.

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.

My wife and I enjoyed our harbour cruise from an orderly check-in process to the included food bites provided and the wine available for purchase. The ship’s host was very knowledgeable about the tall ship’s history and the shoreline sights. It was fun to watch the young kids climb up to the lookout tower.

Pretty easy place to get to and the journey did give some of the best views around the coast. Lots were explained about the ship and its history which made traversing through the seas fun. The guide had personal one-on-one conversations with everyone and did her best to engage us throughout the entire trip. They gave us free snacks to enjoy across the travel. They also provided free ponchos and blankets when it became really cold and rainy which was a plus when it started to storm.

I really enjoyed this. I joined the afternoon cruise on the Coral Trekker. The host and skipper were both so friendly and upbeat it was hard not to be delighted about being part of it, their enthusiasm was fabulous. As we sailed around the harbour our host gave us a history of the area. He also pointed out places of interest along the way. There’s a bar on board and we were served hot snacks also. It was really great. I would definitely do it again. Thanks to everyone.
