showboat cruises

Cruising Sydney Harbour since 1987, Sydney Showboats has delighted over 6 million guests since 1987 with its daily Sydney Harbour dinner cruise that culminates in a spectacular cabaret show by an all-Australian cast.

This unique dining & entertainment cruise concept has catapulted the brand into a league of its own in the cruising industry. Sydney Showboats has recreated the charm of authentic paddlewheelers that used to ply the waters of Sydney Harbour during the 1800s. Originally conceptualised in 1986, this vessel was introduced to Sydney Harbour in November 1987, just in time for the Australian bicentenary in January 1988.

Sydney Showboats were purpose-built with a theatre-style layout and all the trappings of stage, light and sound requirements to host live cabaret shows, luxury dinner cruises and provide a unique viewing gallery to take in all the gorgeous sights Sydney Harbour has to offer.

The Showboat experience promises a night full of spectacular sights, great food and entertainment that transcends all expectations! Glamorous showgirls, in glittering beaded outfits, usher guests into this New Orleans-style paddlewheeler and transport them into a sensational world of glitz and glamour – an experience like no other!
