Cruise the world famous harbour aboard a classic wooden sail boat, Ellen R has been meticulously restored to her original splendour. Built by Norman R. Wright & Sons in 1958, you will be transported back into a time of elegance, grace and style. Be entertained by Captain Stu with his many and various stories about life on Sydney Harbour (though you can tell him if you don’t want any commentary).

Your two hour experience departs Mort Bay, heads past Goat Island, Luna Park, Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Opera House, Farmers Cove, Royal Botanic Gardens, Fort Denison and Taronga Zoo. Captain Stu will ensure that you have the best views of the harbour – and he will even turn his hand to taking a few pics of you both to make sure you capture the moment.
