About us

We love what we do and we love Sydney Harbour. We give people memories, the difference between ordinary day routines and striking lines through the bucket list. We are dreamers who believe that life is meant to be fun and we take that seriously. Established in 1928, we aspire to uphold the values of our family business.

With the latest in vessel design and good old-fashioned authentic Australian experiences, we’re reinvigorating Sydney Harbour.

Fantasea Cruising Sydney is part of the Riverside Marine Group of Companies. Every year, half a million guests from across Australia and around the world travel with our fun, experienced team to some of Australia’s most visited icons, let fantasea give you an adventure of a life time.

Fantasea operates in three locations within Australia.

Fantasea Cruising Sydney operates harbour cruises in Sydney. Yellow Water Taxis, Aussi Water Taxis and Sydney Water Taxis are also part of our operations. They are now part of the largest and safest water taxi fleet on Sydney Harbour – Fantasea Sydney Water Taxis.
