Family Fun With Captain Cook Cruises


The popular harbour cruise company is offering 'one child FREE with every paying adult' on its daily Harbour Buffet Lunch cruise, Harbour Story cruise, Harbour Highlights cruise and its 2-day Hop on Hop off Sydney Harbour Explorer cruise, until 31 March 2020.

Sydney Harbour Buffet Lunch Cruise

We recently took advantage of this awesome deal and took to the seas on the Captain Cook Cruises "all-you-can-eat" Seafood Buffet Lunch Harbour Cruise.

We boarded the majestic three-decked MV Sydney 2000, with its panoramic windows and open top deck with the best view of the magnificent Sydney harbour.

We were seated at a table with a gorgeous window outlook and toasted the stunning view with a glass of sparkling for the grown-ups.

There was a delicious buffet set up with salads, heaps of fresh seafood, a selection of meats such as ham and chargrilled chicken, lasagne, vegetable curry, veggies as well as rice and soft rolls.

To the kids' delights, there was also a variety of different mini-cakes and a cheese board for dessert. Self-service coffee and tea were also available.

As we floated by popular Sydney harbour icons, an entertaining commentary regaled us with fascinating stories about the city's history and colourful characters.

Lunch with a Harbour View


The cruise was just under two hours and the perfect duration for little ones and allowed enough time to feast on the food and enjoy a couple of drinks.

The Harbour Buffet Lunch is $99 per adult and one child aged between 4-15 years is free with every paying adult, normally $69 per child. The cruise departs from Wharf 6, Circular Quay at 12.30pm returning at 2.20pm or from No.1 King Street Wharf at 12 noon, returning at 1.45pm.
