Boxing Day Clearview (Blue Room) Lunch Cruise

Group Discount
 
This Boxing Day cruise is only available to 160 guests, though the boat is licensed for 430 guests. With no overcrowding, no large tour groups and no guests below 18 years, your Boxing Day cruise promises to be premium experience on Sydney Harbour.
 
Enjoy this annual special event on Sydney Harbour from the Sky Deck or from the fully air-conditioned all-glass dining saloon that offers 360° views of the harbour and the start of the yacht race. This is the ideal cruise for a yachting enthusiast.
 
An outstanding fleet of international racing yachts will line up to compete against the Australian yachts. The Sydney-Hobart Yacht Race is one of the world's greatest open ocean races. The race covers 630 nautical miles from Sydney to Hobart. The race was first introduced in December, 1945. The race commences at 1pm with a cannon blast across the Harbour. You will enjoy a selection of canapés plus a deluxe 3-course lunch and a selection of beverages for the duration of the cruise.
 
*This is a Sydney Harbour special event cruise on a public holiday. The price of $165 (AUD) reflects the double-time penalty rates applicable to wages in Australia.

Guest Reviews
  • Thank you so much for a wonderful day. My husband and I had such a good time, your staff were professional and friendly and the service was excellent. Would recommend this cruise to family and friends and would definitely like to go on another one in the future. Kind regards Charmaine and Wayne Keegan

  • We had the best time.... What a wonderful way to spend Boxing Day, a sparkling harbour, a front row seat at the start of the Sydney to Hobart Race, a beautiful sit down lunch ( no queueing for food) a boat where there was plenty of room for everyone and the ability to clearly view and be a part of the race start. We received great service from attentive staff.... All in all a fabulous day.

  • Despite having booked the Magistic for this cruise back in March, we very much enjoyed the Clearview experience. Smaller group, lovely food and overall a great experience. Would do this again with Clearview.

  • This cruise was for my husbands birthday. So Of course I wanted this to be really special for him. I was delighted that we were up-graded from my original booking to the new Blue room vessel.I was impressed with the staff upon arrival and with the seating. The availability of beverages was really good and the canapés were really delicious. The choice of meals offered was also very good and well presented. The Trout was superb. The fillet my husband ordered was well cooked and he thoroughly enjoyed it. The dessert was a perfect finale. The staff and crew were really professional. Another important point to the cruise was that you had a limited number on board, so you felt you had plenty of space to move about. What better way to see the start of the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race. Well done.
