Take a Cruise on the Dark Side…

Experience the cruel history and beauty of Australia’s premier Harbour. Considered one of the most stunning spots in Australia, but also a witness to all the deadliest events and secrets from the heart of old Sydney town.

The Harbour is the jewel in Sydney’s crown, and yet it has played witness to all the foul deeds committed by its denizen of citizens. What appears to the outside world as a haven was once populated by the wild, the wanting, and the pitiful.

Take a cruise back in time and rediscover a bounty of mutinous Sydney True Crime stories and experience a pleasing examination of the darkness of humanity contrasted against the beauty of nature.

About This Cruise

• Sit back and relax as we steer you on a True Crime Cruise across the Harbour, guiding you on a journey through the murkiest moments from Sydney’s long history.

• Travel through the troubled waters of this great city that pays witness to the Harbour’s unmatched excellence amidst so much wickedness.

• Enjoy the best Sydney has to offer for photo and sightseeing opportunities as the sun slowly transforms the daytime views into the city’s bright lights.

• Book your cruise for an unprecedented investigation into Sydney’s most sinister crime-ridden history, and enjoy the sights of the most beautiful Harbour in the world!

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!"
