‘Historic meets modern’ on the Tall Ship Afternoon Discovery Sydney Harbour sightseeing cruise. You get a unique cruising experience on this sightseeing cruise on an 1850s-style tall ship, sailing past (if the weather conditions permit) the Opera House and Harbour Bridge. 

Discover the sights and sounds of Sydney on this harbour cruise with no distractions, as you glide over the waters noiselessly – the silence broken only by the water lapping against the boat. Have an immersive sightseeing experience as you stand on the decks of this authentic tall ship, and get familiar with the harbour, taking in its iconic attractions, picturesque shoreline and tranquil bays.

This cruise gives you the opportunity to try your hand at sailing – work the ropes, hoist the sails and experience what it was like to be a sailor from the days of yore, before engines came about. You will be guided by the crew every step of the way and you could probably learn a sailor knot or two! Be careful to not get a rope burn though and always be aware of your surroundings, as quick responses come second nature to a sailor. 

Unlike other sightseeing cruises, you get a unique hands-on sailing experience on this cruise, besides enjoying spectacular views of the harbour!
