Fantasea Cruising, Sydney
Fantasea Cruising delivers Australia’s most personalised experiences on the water. With the flexibility to cater for 2 to 1200 people, we offer charters in a range of vessel sizes from 16 seater water taxis to large vessels across a range of locations. Our fleet on Sydney Harbour operates evening cruises, special event cruises like Vivid & New Year’s Eve and daily whale watching cruises. Our whale watching cruises are unique to Sydney with a marine biologist on every departure and a hydrophone to hear the whale song underwater. Our fleet of water taxis not only offer point to point services to move people around Sydney with not a traffic light in sight, the sunset cruises and our exclusive picnic on Sydney Harbour are experiences not to be missed.For travelers who use our international travel planner, Sydney holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Fantasea Cruising and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
On Pittwater, north of Sydney, we operate ferry services between Ettalong, Wagstaffe and Palm Beach. We also operate whale watching from Palm Beach during season. In Townsville, we operate a car barge and ferry experience to the beautiful Magnetic Island. Whatever your itinerary may be, our experiences can be tailored to your requirements. We will depart when you want, where you want and for however long you like. With Fantasea Cruising you build the cruise experience around your itinerary not the itinerary around the Cruise. Established in 1928 with over 30 years of experience in tourism, we aspire to uphold the values of our family business.

Wonderful cruise highly recommend. We had a incredible view of the Harbour bridge Opera House and the light show for Australia Day. They gave us mini flags and were part of the parade. We were able to take our own food and a drink was included in the cost. It’s definitely a wonderful way to see the light show.
Great staff and whale spotting guarantee! Their boats/ferries are quite good and offer complimentary snacks and water, which is great on hot days. The guides were helpful but sometimes it would have been great if they didn't say anything and just let us enjoy the beautiful scenery. Well recommended for the price you pay and if you want a good seat make sure you get on at Darling Harbour (and arrive early) rather than Circular Quay!
