Seven Islands Cruise
Group bookings only!
Let our knowledgeable volunteer guides take you on a half day tour of the seven islands!
The Seven Islands Cruise is the second installment of our popular Ships ‘n’ Shore tour. These are great tours for the Probus and community groups looking for a half-day outing.
The tour begins with a morning tea on board the 1874 Tall Ship James Craig in Pyrmont Bay (dependent on availability)*.
The group will then hop aboard heritage Motor Launch, Harman (c.1943) to tour the seven islands, Darling Island, Goat Island, Berry Island, Cockatoo Island, Spectacle Island, Snapper Island and Rodd Island. The tour will then end back at the Australian National Maritime Museum around 1pm for lunch where Yots Cafe can provide several lunch options for $15 (discounted especially for our SHF tour) at your own expense.
This cruise is available on the 2nd Tuesday or 1st or 3rd Thursday of each month**, at $30 per head.
Minimum passenger numbers: 15 (or groups fewer than 15 pay $450)
Maximum passenger numbers: 24
