Big thanks to the crew, we had a great day.
A great day!!
As a family, every member enjoyed something different and exciting from this wonderful experience, from the 5 y.o. 'pirate' to his 'old salt' grandfather. Staff were most informative and friendly (Tom's knowledge provided fascinating insights about Sydney harbour) and treated us like long lost friends. Food was exemplary (yummy curry for a chilly day) and drinks of good quality brands were plentiful. What more can I say, except to state that we will all be returning (and encouraging our friends to join us). As locals, we are delighted to see Australian tourism is more than stepping up to the rest of the world.
I loved the tall ship experience. Our host was so enthusiastic, as were the whole crew. I learnt so much and even though the weather wasn't ideal (a bit damp) it was such a lot of fun. Thank you
The staff were fantastic led by Andrew. Truly great experience,which will be enjoyed again.The food was wonderful and it the whole experience couldn't have been better despite the weather.
Crew on the Larson were terrific
Thoroughly enjoyed myself - no complaints whatsoever.
My 9 granddaughter needed assistance when climbing the mast. Assistance was given freely to enable Ella to climb to the top of the mast. The staff were amazing. Great wAy to spend a couple of hours on our beautiful harbour. Thank you.
Great Crew and our tour guide was excellent!
A wonderful experience which was thoroughly enjoyed by adults and grandchildren alike!
About the boat:
'Southern Swan' is a three masted barquentine built in Denmark in 1922 from Danish oak frames.
Southern Swan regularly crossed the North Sea as a grain carrier between Denmark and Greenland for the Tuborg Beer Company until 1969. With ice being a constant hazard in these far northern waters, the ship's bow was strengthened during the initial construction to cope with any light ice work. She was purchased in 1969 as a private vessel and extensively refitted to make extensive ocean voyages, including service as a sail training vessel with the Royal Canadian Sea Cadets.
She participated in the 1982 Tall Ships Race from Philadelphia to Portugal. In 1986 after appearing at the World Expo in Vancouver, Southern Swan sailed to England to join the Australian Bicentennial First Fleet Re-Enactment for the historic voyage to Sydney. “Southern Swan’s original name was ‘Mathilde’, then ‘Pacific’ , then ‘H C Andersen’ , then 'Svanen’ , and finally ‘Southern Swan’ .
