New Years Eve Midnight Express

When Convenience is Everything

Celebrate New Year’s Eve with an express cruise to watch one of the most spectacular fireworks displays in the world. Departing at 11:00 PM, this cruise is designed for people who simply want a great way to end their night. This 2 hour cruise departs just before the midnight fireworks but still with ample time to get in to position (west of the Sydney Harbour Bridge) for the fireworks (please see position on the map below).

Avoid the bustling crowds and take in the sights of the beautiful Sydney Harbour aboard Fantasea Crystal. With two levels of outside viewing (open roof), relaxing music and restricted capacity to ensure a comfortable environment, there is no better way to celebrate the start to the new year. At the stroke of midnight, we will celebrate the start of the new year in spectacular fashion with Sydney’s world famous firework display. A huge range of pyrotechnic effects from 7 barges in the harbour, 4 sails of the Sydney Opera House, and firing points from across the Sydney Harbour Bridge will illuminate the sky.

Fantasea Cruising is a responsible operator and during your New Year’s Eve cruise, vessel capacity is limited to ensure that you have a comfortable and memorable experience. We pride ourselves on creating special experiences for our guests, book now and join us for New Years Eve 2017!

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!
