Departing from Circular Quay or King Street Wharf around midday, cruise aboard Sydney’s premier fleet — either the Sydney 2000 or John Cadman 2, both with million-dollar views and multiple cocktail decks.

Settle comfortably in the casual dining room where expansive full length windows ensure superb viewing no matter where you are seated. Choose among the best available seats on the day, or guarantee yourself a window seat, depending on option selected.

Then take pleasure in a mouthwatering buffet lunch featuring local seafood such as Sydney rock oysters or mussels, ocean king prawns and fish — plus an abundance of non-seafood and vegetarian international hot and cold dishes, salads, desserts and cheeses. (See sample menu in Itinerary below.)

Upgrade to a Bar Package including Tyrrells Brut, Tyrrells premium dry whites and reds, Tooheys New draught beer and soft drinks to accompany your meal. (Additional drinks available for purchase.)

Listen to commentary about Sydney’s past, present and future as you cruise past the harbor’s highlights. After lunch, enhance your sightseeing experience on the open top deck for close-up photos of the Sydney Opera House, or wave to climbers as you glide slowly under the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

  • Food was just average. Trip around the Harbour was very good though

  • Very Good

  • Excellent food and wine. Nice service and a very informative talk along the way pointing out the sights.

  • We boarded the boat at darling harbour. We were efficiently seated in a widow seat which we had booked. The buffet was set up and before we picked the customers up from circular quay the buffet was open. At this stage I felt that it turned into a free for all. I assumed that staff would then allocate table by table to go to the buffet or sections of tables. As the actual buffet was set out in a small space compared to the amount of people on the boat the queue was very long, longer when the people arrived onboard at circular quay. I feel that the cruise line should look into both points. Because of these issues and the amount of time spent queuing and the feeling we had to chose the food quickly so as not to hold others behind in the queue up, we felt we missed half of the harbour sights. The quality of the food served was good for 'massed produced' food. All in all it was a nice way to spend time in Sydney but for us not a relaxing experience. The boat was comfortable and the staff were very pleasant and professional.

  • Weather was good for this cruise and took some great photos.
    Lunch was very good, definitely try the oysters, food was plentiful.
    A great relaxing 2hours

  • Among the Sydney Harbor cruises, this one stands above the rest. The vessel is modern and immaculate, the staff is friendly and attentive, the narration is excellent, the pace is leisurely, and the food is delicious and varied. The views are outstanding as you sit in comfort, and there is plenty of food and beverages. Cook's is the best!

  • Seafood selection was OK. Wish it had more variety of seafood.
    Ship was extremely clean and promptly on time.
    Customer service was really good. My waitress was extremely friendly and serviced and catered to all my needs.

  • Food was 1st class and view was spectular

  • We really loved the dinner

  • If you just want to see the harbour without knowing what you are looking at or without taking pictures, this is fine. We could not hear any of the narration over the chatting of other passengers, and the ship chose to wash the windows 1/2 hour into the cruise making picture-taking impossible.
