One of Sydney’s most loved festival, Vivid, takes place every autumn. From May the 27th until June the 18th 2022, Vivid will shine brightly with brilliant light installations and projections cast against iconic landmarks including Sydney Opera House and Taronga Zoo. Each year the festival of lights attracts more than 2.3 million visitors and features a program filled with music performances, creative seminars, talks, and workshops.
Every evening from 6-11pm the city illuminates with light sculptures, laser light shows, 3D-mapped projections and virtual artwork. The festival adds to the true beauty that Sydney Harbour already offers. The series of light installations each night begins with the Lighting of the Sails of the Sydney Opera House.
From the comfort of our newest vessel, MV Inception, is undeniably one of the greatest ways to see experience Vivid. It is the opportunity to escape the crowds and enjoy everything Vivid has to offer, up close and personal. Our Superyacht Captain will look after you from start to finish, whether you want to cruise privately with your loved one or would like to experience Vivid privately with your family or friends, cruising Sydney Harbour while sharing extensive knowledge of the city and its rich history. This cruise exude luxury, experienced aboard one of our stunning vessels with complimentary Wi-Fi and enough space for the utmost comfort for the duration of the cruise. It is a magnificent opportunity to soak up the captivating Vivid atmosphere.
We encourage our guests to bring warm clothes to suit the somewhat unpredictable weather conditions on the Harbour. This event falls in Australia’s autumn, meaning it can often be slightly colder on the water than on land.
MV Inception can welcome up to 12 guests, although for ultimate comfort we recommend to cruise with a group up to 8 Adults. Please enquire cruising with a bigger group by calling our office. Our Vivid cruises can book out quickly and it is recommended to book as soon as possible. Please check availability below.
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!
