What to Expect

Step aboard the Southern Swan or the impressive Soren Larsen, two stunning traditional tall ships, and discover the sights and sounds of Sydney on a unique ‘historic meets modern’ afternoon harbour cruise.


Sail past the Sydney Opera House, Fort Denison, under the Harbour Bridge and (if conditions permit) enjoy a real sailing experience on a 1850's style tall ship.


Get involved and make the most of this interactive, unique tall ship cruise. Try your hand steering or help with the sails. You’ll be transported to the days gone by and be able to say you know what it’s like for the sailors of yester-year.


If you’d like to heave on a rope, you can otherwise simply sit back, relax and enjoy the entertainment provided by our friendly crew.


Make sure to bring your camera, as this is an opportunity to see the best of Sydney Harbour. You will love the views of this vibrant city from the unique perspective aboard our authentic timber tall ship.


Where we visit:

Departing from Campbell’s Cove, the tour sets sail for a wonderful adventure! Cruise past all of Sydney’s biggest attractions including Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Opera House, Fort Denison, Garden Island, Taronga Zoo, Luna Park and Admiralty House. You will discover Sydney’s rich history and some of the stories and tales behind these iconic landmarks.


Hear about the amazing story of Sydney’s only authentic timber tall ships, Southern Swan or the beautiful Soren Larsen. Get the opportunity to help hoist and set the sails – a truly unique part of your experience aboard a tall ship. Watch as the wind fills the sails and feel its strength carry the ship across the harbour. The moment the wind takes over and the sound of the engine fades away is like stepping back in time – an experience thousands of sailors across the ages have felt, as they stood on a tall ships deck.


Relax and enjoy the entertainment provided by the crew, captain, chef and the barman – all of whom are at your service.
