Though I’ve been on many ferries over the 20+ years I’ve lived in Sydney, for the first time EVER I went on a cruise of Sydney Harbour today. For $39, a group of friends and I (including visitors from the US), enjoyed two hours cruising the harbour. The cruise included a complimentary glass of sparkling wine, tea, coffee, and cake, and an excellent commentary. Unlike catching ferries, we got up and close with some of the lovely houses of the rich and famous. We also learned a few things about Sydney which none of us had previously known. Captain Cook Cruises, Sydney Harbour Story. Highly recommended.
