Who Are We

Sydney Harbour's Fresh New Story

Fantasea-Reviews-SeahorseFantasea Cruising delivers Australia’s most personalised experiences on the water. With the flexibility to cater for two to 1200 people, we offer charters in a range of vessel sizes from 16-seater water taxis to large vessels across a range of locations. Our fleet on Sydney Harbour operates evening cruises, special event cruises like Vivid & New Year’s Eve and daily whale watching cruises. Our whale watching cruises are unique to Sydney with a marine biologist on every departure and a hydrophone to hear the whale song underwater. Our fleet of water taxis not only offer point to point services to move people around Sydney with not a traffic light in sight, the sunset cruises and our exclusive picnic on Sydney Harbour are experiences not to be missed.

On Pittwater, north of Sydney, we operate ferry services between Ettalong, Wagstaffe and Palm Beach. We also operate whale watching from Palm Beach during the season. In Townsville, we operate a car barge and ferry experience to the beautiful Magnetic Island. Whatever your itinerary may be, our experiences can be tailored to your requirements. We will depart when you want, where you want and for however long you like. With Fantasea Cruising you build the cruise experience around your itinerary not the itinerary around the cruise. Established in 1928 with over 30 years of experience in tourism, we aspire to uphold the values of our family business.

Experience in providing the utmost flexibility removes the stress for you and allows us to cater to any wish you may have. From high-speed water taxis and large number transfers to Christmas parties and exclusive harbor cruises; our services make every request a success. Complex and crucial services may have infinite possibilities in time, location, activities, and inclusions. Under these conditions, personal attention by a friendly and knowledgeable team makes all the difference.

Don’t leave the success of important services and events in the wrong hands. Unmatched on the water, we ensure all of our guests feel relaxed, secure, and professionally attended to. Our expertise will ensure the delivery of the best experience possible. Choose a company that puts the customer first, relieve the stress and let us handle the fine detail. Providing quality service with a welcoming Aussie smile, Fantasea Cruising is here to help.
