Cheer on your favourite ferry as they compete for honours in the race from Fort Denison, around Shark Island and back to the finish line under the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Bring a picnic and join in the buzz of activity on Sydney Harbour. Cheer on your favourite ferry, dressed to the nines, as they rush for the finishing line under the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Memorable Whale Watching Experience

"It was an absolutely great whale watching experience. We saw a lot of humpback whales and dolphins. Beautiful day. Staffs were very friendly. The boat was large, comfy and clean. It was really enjoyable and I'll definitely come back. :)"

Great Cruise!

"Amazing view of the lights without the crowds. The boat was clean and comfortable and not over crowded. Lots of room to move about and get photos. All the staff were friendly and pointed out things of interest. Highly recommended!"

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!"
