The 45-minute sunset cruise starts from either Circular Quay or Cockle Bay and highlights the iconic gems of Sydney Harbour whilst providing a personalised tour by one of our experienced crew with exceptional commentary. With the largest and safest fleet of Yellow Water Taxis on the harbour, this is one of the top 10 things to do while in Sydney.

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!"
