NYE Family Friendly Cruise

Sydney Harbour New Years Eve Family Cruise

Bring along the little ones as we celebrate the magnificence of Sydney’s 9:00pm fireworks spectacular. With a fun, friendly and safe environment, Fantasea Cruising welcomes you to the biggest event of the year. With an 8:15 pm departure, our highly qualified staff position the vessel west of the Sydney Harbour bridge offering families and young children a great view of the fireworks. Away from the bustling crowds, this perfectly timed cruise is designed specifically for families.

Special pricing for children makes this value for money experience a must-do as we conclude 2017. The first fireworks allow the young ones, who might nod off a little earlier, the chance to see the majestic display. With an open roof top, you can see uninterrupted views of the once-a-year event.

Fantasea Cruising is a responsible operator and during your New Year’s Eve cruise, we will limit vessel capacity to ensure that you have a comfortable and memorable experience.

Fantasea Cruising for a fireworks cruise on NYE.

We joined the family on Fantasea Cruising for a fireworks cruise on NYE. The boat carried about 140 passengers so was very personal and we were pleased we chose this over one of the other boats.  Staff was pleasant & helpful.

NYE cruise 2016/17

We booked with this company for the NYE fireworks. Booked the silver package and the booking process and info provided till the exciting day were perfect and clear. On the day itself, the boarding went orderly and calm, although the pier was crowded with other cruisers. The package included a dinner box with an assortment of bread which was tasteful. And you could buy your drinks and chips onboard. At 8 pm we positioning in front of the bridge for the aerobatics and then we watched the 9 pm fireworks near Goatisland which was fine. Hereafter we joined the spectacular parade of lights. The 12 pm fireworks were watched near Fort Denison where we had a fine spot at the start of the show but during the spectacle, all boats drifted a bit from their position so our clear view became sadly a bit blocked by the mast of a big sailboat. But all in all the whole evening was perfectly organised and we had the time of our lives.

NYE 2016/2017 9pm fireworks

The entire team at Fantasea Cruising did an absolutely fantastic job before, during and after the cruise. Professional and organised, the team was also very compassionate and accommodating to the special needs of my family. Special thanks to Alexia for taking care of us and the crew on board for doing a great job during the spectacular fireworks show. A fabulous night to remember, thank you!
