A great activity for the whole family

My husband and I love pirates and all things nautical, this was a great boat with a great lunch, the crew were all lovely too! Even though our initial day was canceled due to not enough people booking, they upgraded us to the drinks package for our trouble which was nice :)

A lovely adventure on a beautiful ship.

What an experience, much more hands on, which was an unexpected bonus. My wife had the opportunity to climb the mast and have a spectacular view of the harbour. Not bad for a 60 year old retired teacher!!! Having worked up an appetite, the lunch was delicious, with a variety of salads, chicken curry or vegetable curry and the most delicious home baked chocolate brownies warm from the oven. What more could a person ask? Thank you Andrew , Andy and crew.

Amazing experience

It was an amazing experience having lunch on the ship while sailing through Sydney Harbour. It was also interesting watching the ship crew performed their duties. We did the lunch cruise, but we reckoned the evening cruise would be even more amazing as you will get to see the sunset.
