For those visitors pushed for time we also offer a four-hour skippered sail which captures the highlights of our spectacular harbour.  Cruise past the Harbour Bridge, Opera House, Fort Denison and explore some of Sydney Harbour’s islands such as Goat, Clarke and Shark islands.

Our professional skippers are familiar with all the best that Sydney Harbour has to offer – whether it be the fairy penguins at Manly Cove, or Sydney’s gorgeous private beaches.
