New Years Eve Cruises in Sydney

Quick Details

Celebrate the night in style with unforgettable New Year’s Eve Cruises on Sydney Harbour with Fantasea Cruising.

Avoid the bustling crowds and take in the sights of the beautiful Sydney Harbour aboard our fleet of catamarans.

Experience the Spectacular NYE Fireworks

With multiple New Year’s Eve cruises in Sydney ranging from 90 minutes to approximately seven-hour experiences, there is no better way to celebrate the new year. At the stroke of midnight, a huge range of pyrotechnic effects from seven barges in the harbour, four sails of the Sydney Opera House, and firing points from across the Sydney Harbour Bridge will illuminate the sky. On our vessels, we tune in to the synchronised simulcast on 104.1 2Day FM to give our customers the complete experience of the event.

With live music, food offerings, and unlimited bar options, we have an offering to suit your needs. With our special family cruise, the young ones, who might nod off a little earlier, also have a chance to see the majestic display. With open and/or retractable roofs (Platinum and Ultimate), you can see uninterrupted views of this once-a-year event.

Fantasea Cruising is a responsible operator and on all New Year’s Eve cruises, we limit vessel capacity to ensure that you have a comfortable and memorable experience. All of our New Year’s Eve cruises in Sydney depart from Darling Harbour on the night. We look forward to having you aboard and celebrating this momentous occasion together!

Fantasea-Favicon A Lovely Evening Cruise

"Great deal booked online and a really lovely 1 1/2 hrs cruising the harbour. We enjoyed the outdoor deck upstairs, but the inside area was just beautiful for those who preferred to be inside. Staff were lovely and overall experience was terrific. We were blessed with the weather... would highly recommend!"
