Sydney Harbour Boat Tours was designed so people could see as much of Sydney Harbour in one day. It mixes a personalised boat tour with hopping off at great locations other boat tours/cruises go past. If you want door to door service and do not want to get on a huge boat with 100+ people then this tour is for you. I love Sydney Harbour and aim to provide you with the best tour experience you'll have whilst your in Sydney.

We took the 2 hour tour without the hop off/on priveleges. As the boat worked it's way around the entire harbor, including going out into the ocean for a very short bit, we got a very good introduction to Sydney's surroundings around the harbor. The lady doing the narration was knowledgeable and very helpful.

Had a fabulous day celebrating my birthday on Sydney Harbour thanks to Andrew and a great cruise including a delicious lunch, swim, walk and knowledge of the Harbour. Could not have wished for more.

Booking was easy and Andrew personally picked up all passengers before heading to Rose Bay. Andrew is an excellent host and a mine of information on Sydney. We stopped at various points on the trip (which is around 6-7 hours in duration) including Darling Harbour, Shelley Beach, Manly Bay and Watsons Bay. Lunch is included and a veritable feast of...

Thanks for coming out on my tour, yes the fish markets is one of my favourite stops but I always eat too much. I do have an esky on board, though with the wharf time restrictions at the Fish Markets its hard to stock it with ice. I really appreciate the great review though thanks again. More
