You won’t be sharing any of our tours with hundreds of others, or listening to recorded commentary. We’ll give you an authentic small-group Sydney experience hosted by a knowledgeable local, as we cruise past famous city sights and waterfront suburbs then explore secluded national parks where only Sydneysiders go. You’ll also get your feet wet, because we’re Sydney’s only boat tour operator to land on the beach and be awarded official EcoTourism certification.
THE ULTIMATE LUXURY HARBOUR EXPERIENCEPRIVATE CHARTER
See the harbour with a customized private tour aboard one of Sydney’s sleekest high-performance sports cruisers, Spectre. Whether you’re visiting Sydney for the first time or entertaining friends and family, Spectre is the perfect way to enjoy the harbour in luxury and style.
Excellent customer service. Staff friendly and super professional. We used 'Spectre' for senior clients during an event, an amazing boat which fitted all our client needs, with a fantastic Captain (Justin) and First Mate (Elodie). Would highly recommend.

I had a fantastic afternoon with Ellie and Zain. They gave a us lovely personalised tour. The highlight was being able to step of the boat onto a secluded beach that was only accessible by boat, for a while we were the only ones on the beach. The tea and cake provided was extra nice touch too.

I live in Sydney but took a day off to enjoy touristing with a friend from home- the boat tour sounded like a great idea and I’m so glad I did! We both had a fabulous time- the crew had great stories and information for us and we got to discover some stunning beaches that I'd never have known about otherwise. 5 stars :)

My husband and I and our two daughters, ages 10 and 12, really enjoyed our afternoon tour of Sydney Harbor with SHBT! It was a great introduction to all of the Sydney Harbor sights, a tour of some of the bays (homes of the rich and famous and a naval base), and a few beach stops at beautiful national park beaches.

The cruises offered by Sydney Harbour Boat Tours (SHBT) are by far the most personalized way of experiencing the harbour, without having to charter your own vessel. Designed for small groups, the SHBT boats can reach the nooks and crannies of the harbourside that the other tours miss.
