Sydney: Secret Beaches Harbor Cruise with Local Guide

1. Sydney: Secret Beaches Harbor Cruise with Local Guide

This tour is about learning, having fun and exploring places off the beaten track. During the tour, your local guide will provide fascinating insights into the harbour’s history, culture and natural environment. Your boat tour begins in the bustling Circular Quay before heading under the Sydney Harbour Bridge and stopping in front of the famous Opera House for photographs. From here, your journey continues past Australia’s largest naval base to the multi-million dollar waterfront mansions of Point Piper, homes to politicians, movie stars and billionaires. After a one hour cruise past all the classic Sydney Harbour landmarks and some fascinating lesser-known sites, you will land on an idyllic National Park beach, where the boat lands right on the beach for you to have a stroll or swim - you may even spot a penguin because this is home to Sydney’s only resident colony of Fairy Penguins. Your next stop is the historic colonial settlement of Quarantine Station and museum, for home-made refreshments and a glimpse of Australian history. Enjoy complimentary refreshments and a relaxing morning tea while enjoying the views of the harbour and national park.

Most wonderful and authentic thing to do in Sydney! Loved it so much

This was truly one of the most special and authentic experiences I have ever done in Sydney! And I am from Sydney! We went to so many beautiful bays and beaches, learn't about the rich and famous and their stunning houses and had time to swim, relax, have a coffee and a lamingto and just take in Sydney from an angle I had never seen before. This is the experience I want to show anyone that visits Sydney as it is the 'real' Sydney! Loved it so much! Bring your friends, bring your family! This is a wonderful day out :)

Having been given the wrong meeting point by get your guide, Mark at Sydney boat tours could not have done more to put things right, even sending the boat to pick us up & extending the time if the cruise. The skipper & the guide were both lovely.

It was a nice day out perfect weather for the day. Zane was a very good guide and Stuart was a good driver, letting people know that there were big waves just incase you got motion sickness. Also, it is very family friendly.

Lot of fun, guides were very friendly and knowledgeable about the areas we visited. I’m traveling alone and they made it feel like I took the tour with friends. The sites were interesting and overall enjoyable experience.

Both Zane and Elodie are amazing hosts. Awesome overview of Sydney Harbour! We really enjoyed this cruise and highly recommend it!
