Just when you thought a Sydney Harbour Cruise couldn’t get any better, VIVID returns for yet another year of spectacular light, art and music displays.

Join Fantasea Cruising as we explore the waterside wonder of this annual festival, cruising to the official VIVID Sydney playlist, watching in awe as magical projections illuminate the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House.

From VIVID’s humble beginnings back in 2009, VIVID Sydney is now one of the Harbour city’s most anticipated events, and with increased Sydney Harbour waterfront activations there is no better time to combine Sydney Harbour cruising with your VIVID Sydney exploration.

To ensure you can make the most out of your evening, Fantasea Cruising’s, VIVID Sydney Harbour Cruises depart from Darling Harbour three time’s nightly. Over the course of one hour we will take you on a journey showing off the foreshore installations from the perspective of our friendly crew, who are lucky enough to live and breathe Sydney Harbour every day.

With this winter wonderland set to take place between late May and mid-June, VIVID Sydney is sure to light up the main precincts of Circular Quay, Darling Harbour, Taronga Zoo, The Botanical Gardens, Walsh Bay and the Sydney Skyline bigger and better than the years before.

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!"
