Expertly led by Dirk and Angie who are both very friendly. A very fun bit of adventure. Would definitely recommend. Helpful info for newbies: Understandably, once you’re on the boat you stay on the water i.e. plan ahead for bathroom and hunger :). If both of you want to pilot the boat, there are points to switch drivers if you like. The guides will take some pics and email them to you later. Even if it’s not raining you may get a little sprayed and if it's sunny you'll dry off pretty quickly.

A fun morning on sparkling Sydney Harbour - highly recommended. Lots to see and enjoy in the 3 hour expedition. Easy to drive and no hassles - and we didn’t get wet. Thanks to Dirk for a memorable Saturday morning.

Mohi1906 November 2021

This was by far the best water experience I have had :) being able to cruise the open sea was amazing! It's value for your money and the people are amazing! Always smiling and such good hosts. We will definitely be going back. Thank you for such an amazing experience :)

SimoninLondon2014 November 2021

A fabulous 90 minute trip on the magnificent Sydney Harbour on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. Dirk provided a safe experience that was full of curiosities, adventure, excitement and fun at a level (sea-level) that you will not find anywhere else. We will be back.

An absolutely perfect gift idea/ adventure, I have done this twice now and it has been awesome both times. Dirk is really friendly and the experience is unlike any other. A unique way to explore our city at an affordable price.

JaneNShane October 2021

We had an absolute ball navigating our way through Sydney Harbour on the guided tour and experiencing the thrill of being able to drive yourself past all the icons that line the edge

Ultimate adventure. This was so fun and would definitely do this so many times more. The guider was kind and took photos of us as well.

dallysb May 2021

The trip is 100% recommended, wether you are a local or a tourist is a great way to see Sydney Iconic landscape. Our tour guide was Dirk he was very knowledgeable and fun.

jamessY324ZW May 2021

Amazing experience. Perfect way to spend 2-3 hours around the harbour. Would highly recommend, you won’t be disappointed!

TZ_Morgan April 2021

We did the 1pm tour for my husband’s birthday. It was so much fun and we grinned the entire time. Experiencing the harbour and the natural foreshore in a self driven boat was so beautiful and unique. The slow bits through Cremorne Point and Point Piper were great for a quiet sticky beak at some amazing real estate. Our tour guide was very friendly and informative and made us comfortable with driving our boat. I would highly recommend this to everybody. Can’t wait to find an excuse to do it again. Well done guys.

jacelle_b16 April 2021

Highly recommended!! It was SO much fun, safe and just an amazing experience. Henry was a great and friendly instructor.

tarishag2021 April 2021

We had a great time driving our own boat around Sydney and getting up close and personal to the Harbour Bridge, Opera House and other great sites. Would highly recommend this experience!

rachjamess March 2021

Amazing fun - would recommend to anyone. We live in Sydney, and it was a great way to be part of the harbour action. The boats are easy to drive and it feels like you're going really fast! And you get plenty of time out on the water. Our guide was great and checked in with us along the way

Was such an awesome experience! Definitely a romantic couple adventure! The scenery was beautiful! Would definitely do it again!

Zodemczyszyn February 2021

Was such a wonderful experience! Such a great way to see Sydney Harbour, I’ve definitely never seen it like this!

Sydneysider1996 February 2021

Absolutely amazing experience! Dirk was a fantastic guide and completely flexible with booking times - we rescheduled once during Dec-20 because of the spike in COVID cases and we almost rescheduled again because the weather report said rain and thunderstorms! Dirk was super accomodating both times and even said that if we arrived for our booking and we didn’t think the weather was ok, we could still reschedule then and there. Turns out, we didn’t need to because the weather was absolutely perfect! We had a fun and thrilling tour of Sydney Harbour that I couldn’t recommend more. Thanks again, Dirk!

235leannef February 2021

Dirk was a great guide! So friendly and helpful! Really recommend this boat experience, it was a lot of fun and was definitely unique!

388jacquesn January 2021

What a fantastic way to really get up close and personal with the beautiful Sydney harbour. Even though I've lived here for many years I've never seen the harbour surrounds quite like THIS! The tour took us to the key Sydney landmarks as well as some lesser known hidden gems. The tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly and the boats were comfortable. I highly recommend this tour to visitors and long time Sydneysiders alike - can't wait to go again. Thank you!

paulgL3960XA January 2021

Great fun, and a really great way to explore the harbour. The tour was just about the right length, and our guide Dirk was really friendly and made the experience really enjoyable. Would really recommend this tour for visitors and locals alike.
