A good 2hr trip around the harbour, taking in all the surrounding sights , very knowledgeable guide and personable captain… The downside would be, the guide is continually telling you that the company business model is poor, all crew are voluntary so tips are gratefully received!! On my calculations, if everyone paid the same as I did for that trip , there was approx $1500 worth of business on board.. Not bad for 2hrs work! NO liquid refreshments included in the price, you have to purchase all drinks separately… Also NO choice on the very light lunch provided, which in our case was a tepid vegetarian curry ..

A perfect experience. Such a great way to see the harbor. The 100-year-old ship is a thing of beauty and Peter, the guide, made the whole journey even more fascinating with his deep knowledge of Sydney. The captain, Andy, is a hearty and likable sailor with a great attitude and the rest of the crew was fun and personable.

My husband and I love pirates and all things nautical, this was a great boat with a great lunch, the crew were all lovely too! Even though our initial day was canceled due to not enough people booking, they upgraded us to the drinks package for our trouble which was nice :)
