Sydney Harbour Boat Tours was designed so people could see as much of Sydney Harbour in one day. It mixes a personalised boat tour with hopping off at great locations other boat tours/cruises go past. If you want door to door service and do not want to get on a huge boat with 100+ people then this tour is for you. I love Sydney Harbour and aim to provide you with the best tour experience you'll have whilst your in Sydney.

Andrew is easy to contact, laid back but very organised. He picked us up on time and provided a wonderful 7 hours of service showing us the unique aspects of the harbour and a great seafood lunch. We had only six people on the boat and shared our day with two Canadian couples who were absolutely lovely people. the cost... More

Booking was easy and Andrew personally picked up all passengers before heading to Rose Bay. Andrew is an excellent host and a mine of information on Sydney. We stopped at various points on the trip (which is around 6-7 hours in duration) including Darling Harbour, Shelley Beach, Manly Bay and Watsons Bay. Lunch is included and a veritable feast of...

Thank you Andrew for a wonderful day on the harbor, Sydney at it's best, I am so thrilled to have shared this with my new husband who has never been to Sydney before in his 56 years. The beauty of this city never ceases to amaze me and your tour makes it feel like you are out for the day... More

Our host Andrew is laid back, very informative about Sydney , the sights and history . We were on a small boat which meant a far better personalised service . Started at Rosebay , went right around over to Darling harbour and the fish markets for lunch which was lovely he also included our friends GF dietary requirement. It's was... More

I can't recommend this tour enough! It was brilliant from beginning to end! Well worth the money! Andrew made the tour....his local knowledge and stories makes this a tour not to miss. I've done a lot of boat trips on holidays and this was the best one....the small group made it really personal and a much more interesting tour. Thank... More

Perfect day with an awesome host. I've lived in Sydney for twelve years but still act like a tourist when out on the harbour! Such a beautiful way to see the best city in the world!

I spent the day out on the water with my husband and family on Sunday to celebrate my 30th birthday and was truly the best way to spend my birthday! I have lived in Sydney for five years and can't believe I haven't done this earlier. Even though I had seen all of the sights before, it is so much... More

I'm not so sure how this company stays in business. It is extremely disorganized and they seem to make plans on the fly. We held off on our other plans as we really wanted to do this tour. Only to be told they didn't have enough people and they hoped to get some for the following day. We were then... More

This is my second "Terrible" review in several years from a person who didn't even come out on my boat tour. I'm not sure how you can write a review when you haven't been on my boat tour, but it has been written. . Sydney Harbour Boat Tours is a small company which has been operating for 8 years. It...

This is absolutely a great tour! My husband and our two kids took this tour. It was so personalized because it is a smaller boat and Andrew, the owner, is so knowledgeable, fun and kind. It is such a unique way to see Sydney and the harbour. We took a Sydney land day tour the day before this, and Andrew's... More

Thanks for the great review Linda, Marty and kids. We had a picture perfect day and the beach all to ourselves, plus the penguins. It certainly helps getting people on my boat who write reviews and experience the tour. I'm glad you had a good day on the boat, and I could throw in some wildlife as well. (Dolphins Penguins)...
