Cruise in style and comfort on board our newest vessel, MV Inception, a modern 360 cruiser. Complete with an experienced Skipper, the 4 hour Half-Day Cruise is sure to be a perfect day out on the water.
This Half-Day Cruise has been carefully designed for groups of friends or small families with kids. With ample space on board for up to 12 guests, the cruise is also a great option for smaller Christmas parties, birthdays or private cocktail parties.
Our aim is to bring a relaxed atmosphere to your day so you can enjoy the company of your guests, coupled with the beauty of Sydney Harbour. Sydney’s world-renowned landmarks, including the Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge, will impress while your experienced Skipper will take you to the hidden secrets within Sydney Harbour you never knew existed.
Set the scene on board with your choice of music throughout the cruise. From laidback tunes by Jack Johnson to beats by Jay-Z, a JL Audio Sound System & TV on board is yours to control for the day. BYO food and drinks are encouraged, meaning you and your guests can settle in and enjoy cruising across the harbour with your favourite tipple in hand. A BBQ is even available on board for the ultimate summer cook-up.
Once we set sail the Skipper on board will take you to a private spot on Harbour where the anchor will drop and you’re free to swim within the beautiful bays of Sydney Harbour and surrounds.
The Half-Day Cruise begins at Circular Quay, where an experienced Skipper will be waiting for you. You will be given plenty of opportunities to soak up the beautiful sights of Sydney Harbour and take some photos along the way.
Your Skipper will then find the perfect place to drop the anchor and settle in for an afternoon in the sun. Go for a swim or lay on the deck; the choice is yours. After 4 hours of gliding across Sydney Harbour and at the conclusion of the experience, you’ll enjoy a slow cruise back before disembarking once more at Sydney Harbour.
This experience can be rescheduled free of charge up to 48 hours before your booking date.

I couldn’t have pulled off my proposal without the help of Glenn. He was incredibly well organised, well coordinated with other event organisers and made sure our special day went according to plan without any issues. Thank you again Glenn! You are a skipper to remember
From the time my fiancé and I got picked up to the time we got dropped off, I couldn’t fault anything. Thankyou Glenn for a lovely cruise!!
Fantastic cruise with great captain. Couldn't recommend highly enough
Fantastic cruise! I had family visiting from overseas and wanted them to experience Sydney from a luxury boat on the harbour. They all loved the experience, thank you!
Captain Marty was an excellent host. Had a wonderful evening on the Harbour.
What a beautiful way to start our girls night out, cruising around Sydney Harbour drinking champagne, dancing and hanging with my besties. Thanks Marty for a truly memorable experience on board the coolest cruiser on the harbour.
Wow!! What a way to see the Harbour and surrounds. Our group of friends were going to celebrate an important birthday in a bar as usual but fortunately one of our crew decided we should do something a little more special this time. We booked the Sydney Secret Beaches Tour and what a fantastic time we had. The ruggedly handsome and knowledgeable Captain Marty took us on a “deck”-adent afternoon of cruising, enjoying a few drinks whilst we soaked in the sights and learnt plenty about this beautiful harbour, getting up close to places we had long admired from a distance and visiting coves we never knew existed. What a great day. Thank you Captain Marty.
Such an amazing evening spent with friends on "Captain Marty's" luxury cruiser! We booked the Sunset Cruise as our dearest friend was visiting from the U.K. and we thought it would be fabulous to travel to dinner taking in the stunning scenery on Sydney Harbour! Sitting on this beautifully crafted timber boat, If it wasn't for the vast water one might think you were cruising the canals of Venice! Super comfortable & a great host. Thank you Marty, we look forward to our next adventure with you!
We had a great afternoon and evening out on the boat. The whole experience was great, starting with meeting the captain and getting the first view of the boat - what a classic. We got to cruise around the inner harbour while the captain provided us with some great stories about Sydney and it’s waterways. We had a great time and I would highly recommend this experience to both Sydneysiders and visitors to Sydney.
Great private boat cruise for couples
First time cruiser and wow....it was perfect! I saw the boat on sunrise with Michael buble and I thought that would be a special treat to do with close friends for some celebrations. We saw not only the river at dusk but all the lights if the harbour too. A magical evening, beautiful boat, delicious cheese platter and an entertaining skipper. We all said we will do it again... 5stars
I am back again in Sydney and have just have enjoyed another cruise with Sydney Luxury Cruises. This time we enjoyed a long lunch cruise with Captain Glenn, a very knowledgeable, friendly and competent skipper. Food was amazing and drinks even better!! Thoroughly recommend to anyone who wants to see Sydney Harbour and enjoys the 'personal' touch.
We booked a sunset cruise and it was definetely the highlight of our trip to Australia! Sydney Harbour is beautyfull and it was amazing to dicover it on a beautiful boat and great Captain Glenn. Thank you for a wonderfull experience!
Ultimate first class experience! We were looking for a more intimate cruise for 4 adults to enjoy the sunset on a warm summers evening on the harbour. Thanks to Captain Marty for making our private Sydney Harbour cruise the most memorable experience for us. The cheese platter was delicious and the bubbles were fantastic. We'd recommend to anyone! The boat itself is amazing...timber 'Italian' style and a dream to relax on. We were picked up from Mosman Bay half an hour before sunset and dropped off at Woolloomooloo just in time for dinner. Perfect in every way!
The private sunset cruise was the absolute best highlight of our time in Sydney! Glenn combined outstanding customer service and great information about Sydney harbor with a smooth, enjoyable ride. Exceeded even our highest expectations and was worth every penny. Stop reading this and just book it now!
