    It was a beautiful experience with all hands on deck! The guide made it feel like it was a personalized tour although there were many other passengers. The staff were friendly and the captain made it feel like a very peaceful cruise. I highly recommend!

    Experiencing what early sailors may have had on good days of sailing. Decking out in a sailor's garb with genuine plastic sword made in China.

    My reason for a low rating is; I paid for a tall ship experience and at the last moment the tall ship that I was really looking forward to riding on was switched to a much smaller and far less impressive yact. I was extremely disappointed about this as it was something I had always wanted to do, so be weary, when you book, it may not be what you wanted. The crew themselves were pleasant and professional, the snacks provided were far from impressive, some cut up chorizo (3) in a paper cupcake, and a small spinach and cheese puff pastry triangle. Very disappointed

    Well,this trip would have been a wonderful experience however we could not get out of the Harbor due to the extremely high winds and harbor traffic. The people who ran it were lovely and concerned. While we were waiting to see if the wind would subside they even passed out hot hors d’ouvres! Wish we could have rescheduled but were leaving the next morning.

    The ship is fantastic, and the staff act like pirates, speak like pirates. It was really a great experience to take a ship like the movies. They also served some snacks for people to consume.

    If you are going to cruise around Sydney Harbour, this is the way to do it! A great experience for the whole family. Wonderful service, and such a beautiful boat

    A great experience, friendly crew who allow you to steer the ship, assist with photos and narrate history of the ship, sailing and aspects of the ship. A nice way to sail around the harbour, under the Bridge in the quiet with no engine.

    Howard was very informative & really interesting to listen to. All the crew led by Captain James were charming & helpful. Fabulous afternoon on the water. Would highly recommend.

    Howard was incredibly informative. I enjoyed the historical references to the area. He’s like an encyclopaedia - if you have a question, Howard’s the man to ask! Captain James & the rest of the crew were all obliging & helpful. It was a beautiful afternoon - great photo opportunities of the Harbour Bridge & the Opera House, amongst other views. The tall ship itself has an interesting pedigree. Well worth doing.

    Really friendly crew. Great views and a privilege to be aboard such an amazing ship. The mini snacks were a nice surprise.
