    It was an interesting cruise. We live locally so have been on the beautiful Sydney harbour many times. Okay, the food is nothing to write home about, but I wasn't expecting much on a smaller rocking ship. A couple slices of chorizo, a paper plate of curried chicken and small bit of fudgy brownie. There were only ten on our lunchtime cruise so we had lots of room to walk about. The guide knew a lot of Sydney history and locations of important people's houses. We were more interested in the history of the hundred year old ship. There is a barman serving wines and beers. Prices were reasonable compared to Sydney city pubs. The ship rocked about at times and we were blessed with perfect warm and sunny weather. It is not expensive to get onto the ship and it is basically run by volunteers that love the experience. We cruised around the harbour using the engines. The sails were opened for a short time and passengers were involved in pulling ropes. One passenger signed a waiver and paid a fee to climb the mast. The rope ladders look a bit wobbly and I can only imagine what it's like to be standing in the crow's nest. Overall another thing ticked off the bucket list. If you want luxury and restaurant quality food, you would be better off on a Captain Cook cruise, but if you want to experience being on a bit of history, this cruise is excellent.

    Such a beautiful afternoon! Even on a low wind day, the tall ship cruise was so much fun. The staff was amazing, and gave lots of history about the ship and the harbour. And lunch was excellent! We opted for the Drink package, which was much easier having paid up front and not every time for a cold one.

    Lovely trip with very knowledgeable commentary was notable. Easy to book and food/service onboard was good too. I was disappointed they didnt put up more sail on the day I went (only 3 square sails of all sails were rigged) given wind conditions seemed good for sailing. Lovely to travel on this ship, given its age - well presented and safe trip.

    Lovely experience on a beautifully restored sailing ship (though much smaller than expected - we were on Coral Trekker - the ones in the pics were the larger ships on the fleet). Staff were friendly and knowledgeable, and went out of their way to be welcoming and provide an enjoyable experience. The Wine and Canape evening cruise provided ample drinks and good finger food. Only downside was that the cruise was scheduled for 5pm departure - we had a stressful rush to get to the Quay in time at the end of our work day and travel to the city , then they ship did not even arrive at the pier until well after 5:30 and did not sail until closer to 6 pm, which affected plans later in the evening. Would absolutely recommend this family owned company for a wonderful experience, and will definitely use as a way to show overseas guests our lovely harbour

    The commentary, the friendly crew and the top hot food. 10x better than the" canapes " catamaran dinner cruise.

    Enjoyable experience - just different to what was advertised. Ship was not like the picture. Trip on the boat was good. Would not recommend this as a lunch experience. Food was tasty, but poorly presented and did not include a significant number of dishes advertised. Servings not at all generous. Advertised ‘staff member would be there 30 minutes before and please be there 15 minutes before scheduled departure’, turned out to be staff member would make himself known just before the vessel arrived - 5 minutes before departure. No signage, no uniform. Were really beginning to believe we’d been scammed. Crew were efficient, skilled and knowledgable but the experience was not what the advertising promoted. Would do the sailing experience again - but not a “lunch’ cruise

    Had a lovely day sailing the harbour - the crew were very friendly and really made my goddaughter’s 15th birthday special

    Even better than expected. Well worth it. Great food, great people. We had a blast. The vessel itself was fun to explore and the views from the water were unique and wonderful.

    Our cruise was cancelled due to lack of patrons. We have requested a refund, however we were informed that we have to apply through Trip Advisor for this. Can you please advise contact and how to arrange for our refund. This would be greatly appreciated thank you, Gail Riggs.

    This was the most amazing experience, I booked a tour on the harbour for New Year’s Eve and it was amazing. The crew was extremely welcoming and helpful as well as a very talented skipper. I would recommend this trip to anyone wishing to have a different experience and one they will remember.
