Know More about this tour

Hop aboard James Craig in Pyrmont and after meeting your host, set sail on your 5- or 6-hour tall ship adventure. The beautifully restored square-rigger was originally built in the late 19th century to carry cargo around the world on major trade routes.

Hear tales and trivia about this much-loved ship from the crew as you sail, passing top sites around Sydney Harbour, such as Harbour Bridge, Fort Denison, Garden Island and Shark Island. Stroll around the deck admiring the sights from your unique vantage point and enjoy morning and afternoon tea as you cruise the harbour (depending on option chosen). Youll also have lunch on board a picnic box filled with treats (6-hour adventure). There is a bar on board where you can purchase alcoholic and soft drinks at your own expense.

Cruise past Australias oldest fishing village -- Watsons Bay -- and then venture out of Sydney Heads for open-ocean sailing aboard Sydneys finest tall ship. Watch the ship's crew set the sails and if you want to actively participate, you may get involved and join the crew. If you'd rather relax, just sit back and soak up the Pacific Ocean's beautiful seascape before returning to Pyrmont where your tour ends.

  • LOVED this experience and the crew made the whole day enjoyable. the packed lunches were really good even if the wind wasn't.

  • The crew of volunteers were amazing, very friendly and professional. The crew encouraged the guests to participate in a range of activities. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who loves history. Sydney Harbour is a special place everyday, but on this ship you feel like you go back in time.

  • This was one of the highlights of our time in Australia. We were offered Dramamine, but didn't think we'd need, it so we passed. Next time we'll take it! The crew was amazing and the musicians added to the atmosphere. Passengers could participate as little or as much in the ship's activities as they wanted.

  • anyone who likes the sea and sailing ships should do this trip, stunning !

  • Fantastic, Highly recommended. First class all the way. Would not think twice about doing this again.

  • Great experience. Best way to see the entire harbor.

  • An Amazing experience....all aussies should experience this once in their lifetime at least...courteous friendly staff....loved the singalong,pity a few more did not participate
