Sydney Harbour Boat Tours takes you to the authentic local gems where no other commercial operators go - we land our boat onto secluded harbour beaches and fascinating waterfront locations. Plus you'll see all the iconic Sydney harbour sights (Opera House, Harbour Bridge etc) and learn some great stuff about our amazing 'living and working' harbour. We have a range of options from 90 mins, half and full day tours, designed so people can see as much of Sydney Harbour in the time they have available. We also provide special tours for NYE, Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race, Australia Day etc, plus private group charters.
