SYDNEY HARBOUR LUNCH CRUISE
Your long lunch experience will begin with a welcome from your crew as you board our luxury cruiser, Ocean Blue, and depart for a surreal day out on Sydney Harbour.
Soft drinks, sparkling wine, beer, still wine, tea, and coffee will be available from the moment you step on board. As we cruise past the world-famous landmarks including the
Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House your crew will be on hand to tell you about the past and modern-day history of the harbour.
As a part of our lunch cruise in Sydney, you will see Woolloomoolloo Bay, the home of the Australian Navy’s Sydney Base Garden Island, then venture further down the harbour cruising past Double Bay and Point Piper which are the locations of the most expensive homes in Sydney.
You then cruise past Clarke and Shark Islands which are two national parks in the middle of the harbour, with Rose Bay on your right. Shortly after you will pass by Vaucluse for your entrée and make the first stop at the renowned Doyles on the Beach at Watsons Bay.
Disembark the boat and head down the wharf to the restaurant where you will have a choice of entrees and a selection of beverages to choose from.
After you have finished your delicious entree, your crew will welcome you back on board. We will then cruise past the opening of Sydney Heads with Manly off to our right and then go around Middle Head to enter Middle Harbour. Then, we will stop at the Balmoral Jetty where you will disembark again for your main course at the Balmoral Public Dining Room.
Here you will choose your main course from the menu and have a selection of beverages to choose from to accompany. After you have finished dining the boat will then head up to Spit Bridge and beyond to see some amazing landscapes and homes perched on the cliffs of Sydney’s upper-class North Shore district.
Whilst onboard one of the best lunch cruises in Sydney Harbour, you will be able to enjoy delicious desserts and our cheese platter. Your return will be back through Middle Harbour and then we will re-enter the main harbour where you will see the Northern shores of Sydney Harbour. Cruise past Taronga Zoo and the prime minister’s house.
There is even an opportunity to stop for a swim if you choose. This cruise is the long lunch and really does show you all the beauty of Sydney Harbour in one afternoon.
