One of the best ways to experience the Harbour is by Tall Ship. Sailing under the Harbour Bridge, past the Opera House, around Fort Denison, within sight of the Zoo and the Prime Minister's Residence, even out to the cliffs guarding the harbour entrance. Sharing the water with historic ferries and with a fantastic view of the skyline, sailing is an eco-friendly way to experience the city. There are two different Tall Ship companies based out of Sydney. The Sydney Heritage Fleet runs the James Craig. This is a very large three masted ship restored from a hulk found in Tasmania. The former cargo barque is very stable - good for those prone to seasickness as the massive bulk of the ship means only a slight side to side roll (not the front to back roll of smaller vessels) is noticeable. They are located by the Maritime Museum in Darling Harbour, providing a good tie in visit to another attraction. Sydney Harbour Tall Ships runs the two masted timber ship Southern Swan. They have themed cruises, from wine, to pirates, to shooting and are a more budget conscious choice for families. They are based out of The Rocks, a quirky area of cobblestone laneways dating back to the convict past of the city. report a problem
