Sightseeing Cruises – Sydney, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Melbourne, Perth and more!
From the Sydney Harbour and the Sunshine Coast to Melbourne and Philip Island (and as far out as Tasmania), sightseeing cruises that combine vivid panoramas and VIP service are ready to give you the star treatment. There are several quick jaunts such as the Mooloolaba’s sunset cruise or a nighttime cruise at Sydney’s Darling Harbour. Several of these cruises include gourmet eats and are equipped with fully stocked bars (the views here far surpass those from your typical Friday-night pub).
You can also discover one of many tall ship sailing tours! These wooden structures are true working museums. You’ll take in phenomenal scenery and at the same time get an old-school look at how vessels were manned centuries ago. Play Captain Cook for the afternoon!
Whale Watching, Dolphin Watching and Great Barrier Reef Cruises
Eco-adventures abound! Port Stephens is a humpback mecca. Head here for a whale watching cruise and your guaranteed astonishing nature photography opportunities. At Phillip Island, seal lovers will be awed by the whiskered scenery on a seal cruise that travels to Australia’s largest fur seal rock!
And then, of course, there’s Australia’s richest ecosystem, the Great Barrier Reef. Cruises at this World Wonder include an underwater observatory and onsite discussions with marine biologists. These are sprawling full-day excursions that provide a sensory overload to both children and their parents!

And if you want to set your own course, we even feature an in-depth yachting lesson where you and your mates get to learn the ropes.

And if you simply want to get on the water and get moving, speed boat hires are available throughout Sydney harbour. Pack your lunch and revel in a day of cruising at your own pace!
