Client Reviews

Brian Walsh - Executive Direction of Television @ FOXTEL

Our experience on board Dreamtime completely exceeded our expectations! Smart Cruiser Sydney have provided an incredibly thorough service from beginning to end and created an amazing day for my guests with beautiful décor, amazing food and personalised service from staff on board. We will be keeping Smart Cruiser Sydney’s details on file and be booking them for another “money can’t buy” experience on Sydney Harbour!”

Fiona Murray - Director

Perfect! Would definitely book Smart Cruiser Sydney again and recommend.

The Boat:

Join us on board the beautifully maintained ferry PROCLAIM, to experience everything the harbour has to offer for this years celebrations. This year we are hosting an all inclusive cruise at a competitive price, our vessel is licensed for over 200 guests but will only have 110 spaces available to provide the best experience possible.

We Love:

  • Proclaim is an original Ferry from 1939
  • The ferry’s first engagement was carrying spectators at the Australia Day Sydney Harbour Regatta on 26 January 1940.

Location for the midnight fireworks:
The boat will be on the western side of the harbour bridge for the 9 o’clock fireworks which is a great way to capture not only the Harbour Bridge up close but all of Darling Harbour’s celebrations. Along with other charter boats they will all proceed under the Harbour Bridge to the eastern side of the harbour where we will be in a great spot for the 12 o’clock fireworks.

Part of the parade of lights: No
