“A Harbour History Lesson With Syd D”

My partner and I were on a short weekend away from South Australia and wanted to get over to Taronga Zoo – a Water Taxi seemed the way to do it and were we lucky to get to ride with Syd? You bet. From Darling Harbour Syd gave us some insider knowledge on the naval vessels, history of the rocks, SH bridge, Kirribilli house and more. Entry to Taronga was part of our taxi fare – it was great. Thanks again Syd!

Trip to Taronga Zoo and Back…Absolutely Great!!

Our skipper Chris was wonderful! He pointed out interesting sites and details, slowed down for photo opportunities, and gave us tips for things to see and do at the zoo! The whole experience was a pleasure and we enjoyed his great service!!

Trip to Taronga Zoo and Return

Tim, our water taxi driver for the morning run to Tooronga Zoo was exceptional. Light hearted banter whilst being very informative. He was excellent with soon to be 8 yr old son, showing him the boat’s various features and what the various buttons on the panel were for. The only reason why I didn’t give a 5 rating was our return trip (although the driver was waiting for us and on time) was a little abrupt and seemed to have a lot on his mind. When my son couldn’t alight quickly he seemed to get frustrated with him. This annoyed me as my son is on the autism spectrum and cannot be expected to simply just jump when asked. And it was only a matter of a few seconds. So not impressed.

Really Good Trip

Enjoyed a really good trip on the taxi with Steve. Even waited for us before we came out of the Zoo and we haven’t wait for any minutes.

Great Staff, Spotlessly Clean.

The staff was fantastic, very helpful. Caught the ferry to Taronga Zoo and back as a package. The ferry times are very reliable, and the staff was helpful and professional. Due to bad weather and rough seas (yes, there were waves in the harbour – big ones!) the ferry crew had some fun and the skipper caught some waves for us, turning it into a bit of an adventure instead of a smooth ride. Great way to get around.

Whale Watching and Zoo Visit

Used Darwin twice for a cruise in Sydney harbour: for a visit to the zoo (very easy, ticket for zoo included, drop off near sky rail and boat ride multiple times per day to get back to city; staff friendly; I guess similar experiences with different boat operators and I would hope that prices & services are comparable but don’t know that for sure) and whale watching (again , seen the number of boats watching the same whales, I would think that the competition between operators is fair. It was lovely to have a marine biologist on board who gave some information on the whales.
