There’s something really special about exploring Sydney’s waterways onboard our well-appointed 52-foot cruiser. Customers often tell us that seeing Sydney by boat is an experience like no other. Our captain has plenty of local knowledge and readily shares information about the city’s rich and interesting past. He gives you a glimpse of some of the most arresting landscapes along the way and takes you deep into each part of the harbour so that you can take a closer look at your surroundings and revel in the sights and sounds around you. The entire team works together to deliver a relaxed and uncrowded onboard experience. Our customers also give us extra brownie points for cooking them a mean Australian BBQ.

We offer our guests a very warm, friendly, and intimate experience onboard our small vessel. Most of all, we have a big passion for what we do, and we’d be more than happy to entertain you any time of the year. 

Here’s what our customers had to say: 


Had an amazing day on the water with a great group of people. The crew were very friendly and full of knowledge about Sydney’s history. Very relaxing with delicious food and drinks. A great way to get the know one of the worlds most treasured cities. Highly recommend.

An amazing cruise, good sized boat for our group of 23 and a perfect way to experience Vivid from the harbour! It was great for both the adults and children. We will definitely be making this an annual outing! Thank you!

Avoid the huge boats and choose Sensational Sydney Cruises. Captain Shane and Tour Director Howard did an awesome job of providing a great harbour cruise, a vast amount of knowledge on everything we saw and a great meal! There were a total of 10 passengers with plenty of room on the boat to move around. The cruise goes deep into each portion of the harbour to places the large boats can’t take you. The service was excellent. The small bout makes all the difference. Well worth the cost.

We have spent an amazing afternoon cruising Sydney Harbour with Marge and Shane, who are very knowledgeable, friendly and funny people. They were very enthusiastic about their tour and everything Sydney. Marge was a great host who kept the drinks and food coming and she always made sure we were having a great time. Moreover, she told us things about Sydney that we believe not many other people know and could tell us in such a great and entertaining way. The weather on that day was great so some people went kayaking and we did some fishing. We met great people on the cruise who we talked with the entire time. The lunch was very delicious and healthy (grilled salmon, beef steak, loads of salad, Australian cheese and some fruits). It was a lovely experience and we couldn’t be happier to be there. We highly recommend it to everyone who visits Sydney!

Had a nice afternoon cruising Sydney Harbour with Shane and Marge. Marge was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic the whole time, providing a great experience. The food was also nice and Marge kept the drinks coming.
