Climb on board this 900 horsepower, offshore RIB vessel and hang on tight!

Check out 'The 'Gap' and the gigantic cliffs of North Head.
This product is only available to RedBalloon customers
After boarding the vessel at Circular Quay, your skipper will run through a brief safety demonstration before departure. Once underway you will experience an amazing close up view of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House. Now up to a cruising speed of 30 knots you will make your way past other landmarks such as Fort Denison and Lady Macquarie's Chair on you way to the opening of the harbour known as 'the heads.
It's from here that the vessel enters a league of its' own. This experience has an unrestricted offshore licence that allows it to travel out past the heads, and it's at this point that it opens up the throttle and reaches speeds of almost 100kmph.
The conditions offshore on the particular day will dictate how bumpy the ride is but rest assured it doesn't get any more extreme. After leaving the sheltered water of Sydney Harbour you will head out into the open ocean for a unique view of the city not available anywhere else. You will see the infamous 'Gap' and then by taken on a close up 'drive by' passed the dramatic cliffs on North Head.
Once back in the harbour we will cruise past Watson's Bay, Shark Island and Clarke Island on our way back to Circular Quay.
