The Captain Cook Coffee Cruise is a great way for Sydneysiders and tourists alike to explore the beauty of Sydney Harbour, while relaxing with a cup of tea or coffee. Running twice a day at both 10:00am and 2:15pm, the cruise is a guided tour of Sydney Harbour and a great way to enjoy coffee with friends while taking in the beautiful scenery.
The cruise includes tea and coffee, as well as a small snack box, including a muffin, a lamington (this is Australia after all), and biscuits. However, even if the food wasn´t available, I would still recommend this tour, as you get to see Sydney´s most beautiful beaches and bays. If you´re lucky enough to go in summer, take advantage of the breeze, and the spectacular photo opportunities. While the tour is $55 for adults, and $25 for children, it may seem a bit pricey, however I would definitely recommend doing this tour at least once. For those who sign up to the Captain Cook Club, they can do this cruise for free on their birthday.
I really liked this cruise, however there are two things which I would like to change: the afternoon tea is very light, so eat a substantial meal before or after. Also, the two hours on the cruise passes too quickly, so make the most of it. I would recommend this cruise to everyone, but particularly tourists, families (the cruise is very family friendly), and to anyone who wants to see the harbour from a different angle.
