Aloft on James Craig


Take your outing to new heights – go aloft by climbing the mast of Australia’s largest operational tall ship!

Under the watchful eye of our experienced crew, as a passenger on Sydney’s iconic square-rigger, you can now climb the rigging and go aloft on James Craig just like an 1874 sailor but with the added assurance of 21st century safety gear and trained crew supervision!

From your vantage point, high above the deck, you will get an entirely different perspective of this incredible ship and Sydney skyline. You might even, if you’re lucky, be the first to cry “Whale ho on the starboard bow (me hearties)!”

Join the crew up in the rigging and enjoy the thrill of climbing the mast!

Add this mast climb to your See Sydney Under Sail ticket or James Craig Charter for only $75 pp*

This price includes full training, safety equipment as well as full insurance. The minimum age for this add-on is 16 years old.

Photos taken by one of our crew members are also available to remember your climb, show off to friends & family and take the adventure home.

Please note that mast climbs may not be available depending on conditions on the day.

To book a mast climb, simply notify the crew on the day of your sail and they will organise it for you.
