Constellation Sydney NYE Cruise

Boats for Every Experience

Common sydney harbour nye cruise questions:, where does the nye cruise start.

Your Sydney Harbour wharf location will differ depending on your NYE boat cruise. Most bigger boats depart from King St Wharf in Darling Harbour, but some pick up from other wharves around Circular Quay or around the Rocks. Please read the cruise description and check your tickets for when to meet your boat and where.

What should I expect on an NYE cruise?

Departing from close to the city, you’ll get to see all the beautiful sights on Sydney Harbour. Your NYE cruises will head past the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge and find an incredible spot to view the 9pm and midnight NYE fireworks from Sydney Harbour.

Most NYE cruises will offer a food and drink package and entertainment like a DJ or band on the boat.

Make sure your camera is ready for that incredible photos, and let the countdown begin!

Will my NYE cruise enter the parade of lights?

On NYE, many boats take part in the parade of lights. These boats are lit up as they make their way around Sydney Harbour leading up to the countdown. When boats enter this parade of lights, they get special access to the exclusion zone.

Boat entries are not determined until two months before NYE. Please ask us if your preferred boat will likely participate in this New Year’s parade of lights for your cruise.

What happens on an NYE cruise in bad weather?

In bad weather, boats will still go out on the Harbour on NYE. Boat cruise cancellations don’t occur in rainy weather unless the weather is deemed unsafe. With many of the NYE cruises, these boats offer ample interior space, so the weather would not affect you.

For a complete list of cancellation policies, please read each boat cruise’s terms and conditions carefully.

What’s included in my NYE boat cruise?

The NYE cruise is the best way to experience the Sydney fireworks. The view from the water is incredible and a memory you’ll never forget. For each boat cruise, what comes included will be different. Most NYE boat cruises include food, drinks (beer, wine, sparkling, and soft drinks) and entertainment on the night. You’ll be in prime position to watch the 9 pm and midnight fireworks.

Please read the tour description carefully to ensure what to expect on the water.

Are there bathrooms on my NYE boat cruise?

The boat cruises will have a bathroom on board. Many of the bigger NYE cruise boats offer full bathrooms with stalls similar to a venue on land.

Please remember that these may be marine toilets for boats with bathrooms on board. Only put what comes out of you into the toilet. Ensure you read any instructions in the bathroom for properly operating the restroom or check with the crew on board.

What should I bring on my NYE cruise?

Your boat cruise will be on Sydney Harbour and will typically include all your food and drinks. Dress appropriately for the weather, and please take note of the NYE dress code for your boat cruise. Some boats do have a dress code you would be required to follow. For cooler evenings, make sure you have something warm. Bring comfortable shoes and heels are typically not allowed on the ship for safety reasons and to ensure they don’t damage the floor.

Each cruise is different, so read the what to bring section in the boat cruise description.

Pick a Great New Year’s Eve Cruise in Sydney 2024

Are you thinking of booking a New Year’s Eve Cruise in Sydney to watch the Sydney Fireworks and not sure where to begin? Well, you aren’t alone! Questions about NYE cruises in Sydney fill travel forums and our inbox every year. Cruises go on sale earlier than all the other NYE events and usually starts filling up mid October. It is recommended to get in early for the best prices and range of options.

I have personally attended the NYE Fireworks show in Sydney over 20 times. I have watched from a boat, the Opera House, The Botanic Gardens, a harbour island and Mrs Macquaries Point. Among my most memorable experiences have been the times out on the water but there is a huge range in quality of NYE Harbour cruises so today I want to share some tips to help you make a good decision.

Top 5 NYE Cruises

In a hurry and don’t really want to read over the detailed advice below. Well here you go!

  • Most Unique NYE Cruise – Sydney Harbour NYE Tallship Experience . – Sold out!
  • B est NYE Cruise for families – Ocean Dreaming 9pm cruises from Darling Harbour or Manly .
  • Best NYE Cruise for partying – Bella Vista with a DJ to provide the summer night beats.
  • Best NYE Cruise to impress – The Jackson is a brand-new high end ship.
  • Best NYE Cruise for foodies – Captain Cook do a wonderful dinner on NYE. – Almost sold out

Choose an accessible pickup and drop-off spot for your NYE Cruise

The first thing to consider is where you will join the cruise. If it’s departing from an odd location or even one that is hard to get to from home, it becomes more trouble than it’s worth. If you can, choose a wharf that is near public transport, or parking if you have a designated driver. Let’s face it; no one is in the mood to walk kilometres at the end of a long night of partying.

Note: New Year’s Eve sees lots of city streets closed and your usual parking spots or transport routes may not be available, so plan ahead.

A New Year’s Eve cruise in Sydney Is a big-ticket item. These tips on finding a good NYE cruise will help make sure you pick a quality cruise, because when it comes to Sydney Harbour Cruises ON NYE, it’s not always smooth sailing.

Make sure you know who the operator is.

Boats of all sizes are available for charter on Sydney Harbour so it’s important to make sure the operator you pay for your cruise is reputable. There have been occasions in the past when people have handed over large sums on money only to find no boat turns up on NYE.

Check out the company selling the tickets, look at Google reviews, ask in our group or stick to buying from an OTA like Australian owned and operated Travello (our preferred partner), Get your Guide or Viator.

Decide if you want a BYO cruise or a fully catered option?

New Year’s Eve cruises, whether ticketed or through a private charter, fall into one of two categories; Bring Your Own and catered. If your cruise is catered, then make sure you know exactly what is and is not included.

Catered cruises are usually one of three types: canape and finger food, buffet or seated menu. Many operators are happy to work with your specific dietary requirements, so reach out directly and ask if you have any special needs.

Dessert on Captain Cook NYE Cruise

Along with the different food menus are different drink options. Some offer regular bars where you buy what you would like to consume. More often though, some sort of drinks package is included. Everything from the premium packages with imported beers and bubbles to the basic local beers, house wine and spirits.

If you choose a chartered boat rather than one of the packages on offer by cruise operators, you are more likely to find they offer a BYO option. The major benefit of this option is that you can take along exactly what you want to drink, and you can save if you are not much of a drinker.

NYE on Sydney Harbour from Captain Cook Cruises

If you go with the BYO option, double check that there are no corkage fees, that you can bring your esky to keep the drinks at perfect temperature or that they have cooling on offer onboard.

Make sure the boat has secured a good position for the fireworks show!

Seems like a simple decision, but it’s not. Many of the less expensive boats don’t exactly have stellar positions assigned to them. If your boat is positioned inside the exclusion zone, you will be in the thick of the action with amazing views.

If your cruise is part of the Harbour of Light Parade, chances are it will have a prime position when the clock strikes 12, but if not, double-check with the operator.

View from a boat outside the exclusion zone on NYE

There are two things you should check:

  • They assigned larger boats a general vicinity to anchor in for the show. Smaller charters rely on the skill and experience of the captain to find the best spot.
  • Also, consider the vessel itself. There is often limited space on the outside decks; some boats don’t even have an outdoor area, so you will watch the fireworks from behind glass. Sure, it might be cheaper, but is this what you want?

How much do new years eve cruises in Sydney cost?

If you want to be on the water under the fireworks, then you are looking at somewhere between $399 and A$1500 per person for a food and drink package.

All the leading tour operators offer cruises on Sydney Harbour on New Year’s Eve with some of the big-name boats charging up to A$1500 per person. For that, you get a 6-hour cruise with a five-course meal and drinks. This is a great way to experience Sydney on NYE if you can afford it. Just do your homework and make sure you chose a vessel that is suited to your musical/food tastes. 20 something’s may not like to listen to a 60’s band all night 😉 just like 50+ might not like 5 hours of dance music. At about 9.20pm after the first round of fireworks, many of the vessels on the water turn on their lights and parade up and down the harbour until the midnight fireworks.

Harbour of Lights Parade

Every year Sydney Harbour is brought to life not just by the fireworks but also by the Harbour of Lights Parade, an annual pilgrimage of boats that make their way down Sydney Harbour. This is a fantastic experience, but whether you are in, it affects where and how soon you anchor. The boats that take part in this parade tend to get the best anchor spots.

There has not been much talk of the Harbour of Lights parade this year. I have not seen a list of confirmed vessels however it will include most of the big operators.

Harbour of light parade New Years Eve Cruise in Sydney

Check with your cruise operator to see if they have any boats taking part in this parade, as I highly recommend it, not just because you get an excellent anchor spot but because it truly is a breathtaking experience.

Another way of ensuring you will have a good vantage point is to choose a boat that advertises they will be positioned in the exclusion zone.

New Year’s Eve Cruise 2023-24

So now on to the boats I would consider if I was buying New Year’s Eve tickets this year.

NYE on a Tall Ship

For a completely different night, spend a night on a boat of a similar size to the ships of the First Fleet.

One company I have cruised with (but not on NYE) and loved is Sydney Harbour Tall Ships. They have two Tall Ships that are positioned in the exclusion zone, meaning you have an excellent view of all the fireworks action. You can see the ships’ locations, in Circular Quay between the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge in the photo below.

Sydney Harbour Tallship location on NYE

The Southern Swan and the Soren Larsen provide a fantastic experience. Plenty of deck space, a great atmosphere with lots of music.

Your ticket includes:

  • Delicious canapes & finger food
  • All bubbly, wines, beers, soft drinks, juices & water
  • A live band playing popular music & requests

The tall ships, however, are sadly not wheelchair accessible, nor are they suitable for younger children.

The Jackson

The newest luxury vessel on Sydney Harbour, the Jackson offers elegant comfort and guarantees a top-notch experience on NYE.

The Jackson is a luxury ship on Sydney Harbour perfect for NYE

On offer is a 7 course meal, including a 5 course degustation and a midnight supper. The 6.5-Hour All-Inclusive Platinum Beverage Package features free flowing Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label NV, signature cocktails and top shelf spirits, craft beer and a selection of premium wines.

THe Jackson NYE

The boat will be positioned inside the exclusion zone for an outstanding view of the fireworks shows at 9pm and midnight. Book now

There will be live entertainment on each of the decks and at Moët & Chandon Ice Imperial Rooftop Bar, a DJ to party the night away.

Starship Sydney

Ring in the New Year on Starship Sydney ! Enjoy all-inclusive food, drinks, and entertainment with a view of the 9pm and midnight fireworks. Dance to the tunes of a well-known Sydney Party Band and DJ.

Starship Sydney Glass boat on Sydney harbour

Starship Sydney features three levels of unobstructed views, two-metre high glass windows, and two open deck areas for a stylish New Year celebration.

This 5-hour cruise which departs from King Street Wharf will feature Canapé and Gourmet Food Stations, a beer and wine package, and is only suitable for adults 18+.

Starship Sydney will have a prime viewing spot for Sydney Harbour NYE fireworks.

Captain Cook Cruises

Captain Cook is one of the most experienced cruise operators on Sydney Harbour with two vessels out this year. This is a lovely way to see in the New Year and any night on Sydney Harbour is a good night in our book.

Captain Cook Sydney Harbour Sydney 2000

Where Captain Cook excels is in their food offerings. We have dined on their boats both as a guest and as paying customers in the last couple of years and have been impressed by what they offer.

Here are a few samples from meals we have had on the Sydney 2000 vessel.

Captain Cook cruise entree

NYE Sky Deck Dinner – The top deck of the MV Sydney has 6-course degustation menu paired with Penfold’s premium wines including a 75ml glass of world-famous Penfolds Grange. You will celebrate in style with bottomless Penfolds Rose Champagne (France) & premium spirits and a midnight celebration cocktail.

There will be live music and access to the top roof deck. Tickets are sold out for 2023

NYE Club Deck Dinner – The middle deck on the MV Sydney has a 5-course dinner including canapes at midnight. Bottomless French Champagne and premium drinks included. You will be entertained with live music and there is a glass of Champagne at midnight. Tickets on sale now $1190pp. – Tickets are sold out for 2023 (10/10/23)

Captain Cook Gold Cruise seating

Ocean Deck – This is the entry-level of the boat and is the best choice for those with limited mobility. You have fantastic harbour views, with lounge-style seating and no need to climb the stairs. The menu on this level will offer Mezze Platter for two, a decadent dessert platter of elegant petit fours, truffles and choc dipped strawberries and Roving Canapes at midnight. Bottomless Cocktails and a selection of premium beverages will be offered all night.

Live entertainment to keep you in a party mood till midnight. Window seats can be guaranteed for an extra $50pp. Tickets on sale now $1090. – last seats selling now (15/10/23)

Captain Cook Rocket  NYE

Captain Cook Rocket – The BYO option – you supply the food and drinks and let Captain Cook take care of the view. Board at King Street Wharf at 7.30pm for your 5.5-hour cruise. $550pp – Sold out 31/8/23

Other Sydney NYE cruise operators

  • The Jackson  – Seven course Dinner including a Five-course Degustation menu along with a 6.5-Hour All-Inclusive Platinum Beverage Package featuring free flowing Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label NV, signature cocktails and top shelf spirits, craft beer and a selection of premium wines $1499. – Last seats selling now (15/10/23)

  • Ocean Dreaming 9pm Family Cruise – Departing from Darling Harbour at 7.15pm this 2.5 hour tour is perfect for families and anyone wanting to avoid the midnight chaos home. $350.
  • Ocean Dreaming Manly Cruise – Another 9pm option for those staying on the northern side of the harbour $350
  • Sydney Harbour Tall Ships – With two stunning tall ships, usually inside the inclusion zone, this is a fun night out. Tickets include dinner, drinks and live music for $949.
  • MV Jerry Bailey – Includes cruise, buffet dinner, and beer, wine, and soft drinks for $949
  • The Sydney Heritage Fleet Waratah – a fundraiser for the Sydney Heritage Fleet, a great choice for sailing buffs. Tickets are just for your spot on the boat, it’s BYO dinner, snacks and beverage from $499 – Sold out Sept 23

There are dozens more operators but these are the key companies who have experience and a history of good service. We do not actively recommend other operators as many charter ships for the night so we have no idea who is actually operating the event and if you will get value for money. Please do due dilegence before you book.

1 thought on “Pick a Great New Year’s Eve Cruise in Sydney 2024”

Hi, I am wondering if there is: 1) Any cruise for NYE that plays more house music not pop hits? 2) Any cruise where no children are allowed? 3) Any cruise where there is an option to pay for “no alcoholic beverages included” please? My hubby and I do not drink alcohol and it seems a waste to pay such money that includes alcohol when we don’t drink

These are the best Sydney NYE cruises to book right now

Take to the Harbour for front row seats to the start of 2022

Maxim Boon

Update, December 23: In light of the surge of cases, many Sydney venues are cancelling NYE events. Call ahead of your visit to confirm if celebrations are taking place as planned.

In Sydney, ringing in the new year is a go-big-or-stay-home affair. But this year, the celebrations will be even bigger, we suspect. We’ve spent a quarter of the year indoors, and if you're anything like us, you've got some catching up to do when it comes to big nights out. So, why not spend your last hoorah of the year in the company of Sydney's greatest icons, the Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House, on a New Year's cruise?

We’ve curated a list of the best you can book right now to secure the well-earned fun you and your mates deserve. Most of the cruise experiences come inclusive of food and drink, so all you need to worry about is having a damn good time.

Starship Sydney

Behold Australia’s largest glass boat, Starship Sydney. Spend your whole NYE on board, indulging in an all-inclusive evening of canapes, cocktails, Australian beers and premium wines, and three entertainment levels, which includes two decks of DJs. Starship Sydney offers an excellent view of the midnight fireworks display, departing from King Street Wharf at 7.30pm and returning at 1am. Tickets are on sale now from $750 per person.   

Harbourside Cruises

All aboard the Harbour Spirit, a luxury catamaran that you can hop on for NYE this year. Equipped with gorgeous contemporary interiors and two spacious decks, this 5.5 hour Sydney Harbour party cruise serves up epic views of the fireworks from inside and outside the boat. For $550 per person, enjoy bottomless beer, wine, and soft drink, constant service of appetisers and canapes, and non-stop party bangers on the dancefloor. Departs from Pyrmont at 7:15 pm and returns at 1 am.  

Yeah Buoy NYE Boat Party

A three-level boat party with 360-degree unobstructed views of the fireworks? We’re 1000% in. Departing from Port Jackson at 5.30pm, this 7.5hr all-inclusive cruise is the ultimate NYE treat. Live DJs all night, live entertainment, karaoke bar, a luxury seafood buffet, cocktail bar, grazing tables, drink service, and even casino table – you can’t really go wrong. Get your boogie on at Yeah Buoy. Tickets start from $600 per person.  

Showboat Art Deco New Year’s Eve Fireworks Cruise

If you’re looking for something a little fancier, look no further than this all-inclusive cruise on the luxurious Sydney Showboat II. Guests can expect to take up the Azure Deck, which is a private third-level area hosting only 60 people (max comfort guaranteed). A deluxe 5-course seated dinner will be served, with premium beverages available for the entire night, alongside a DJ and dancing—the way we all want to enter the new year, right? Tickets are $850 per person.

Fast Ferry Cruises

NYE doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg. Which, most of the time it does. If you want to jump on a New Year’s Eve cruise without spending more than a few hundred, choose Fast Ferry Cruises. Starting at $200 per person, these shorter 2.5hr cruises are BYO food and drinks and run for either the 9 pm or midnight fireworks, departing from Manly, Rose Bay, or Darling Harbour.  

Le Bleu 

If you’re an avid fan of electronic dance music and are ready to spend NYE with banging tunes and boogies, you can’t go past a ride on Le Bleu. The night features an exclusive DJ set from BINARY and Alvin Chan and the best possible views of the fireworks, which means you’ll be starting 2022 off with a big bang (and not just ‘cos of the fireworks). There’ll be a Belvedere Vodka on arrival, sushi platters to munch on during the night, and of course a glass of Moet Chandon champagne at midnight. Tickets are $500 plus a small booking fee.  

Bella Vista New Year’s Eve Cruise

Welcome in the new year aboard a luxury glass vessel with 3m high wraparound windows, giving you a prime position for the midnight fireworks. With spacious decks at the front and back and top of the boat, there’ll be plenty of room for all the activities on this all-inclusive 5.5hr cruise. Not to mention delicious canapes, a standing buffet menu and desserts, and a state of the art sound system to have you dancing into 2022. Tickets are $799 per person, but it’s all about the experience this NYE.   

Sydney 2000 Cruise

This NYE is all about making up for the lost time. And sometimes, doing that over a decadent dinner is the best way to do that. Cruise into 2022 onboard the Sydney 2000, a vessel that has been floating in the exclusion zone for over 20 years. This means it won’t be a problem getting an incredible view of the midnight fireworks. With prices starting at $799 per person, you can choose from three luxurious decks, each with all-inclusive food, premium drinks, and live entertainment. The cruise departs from King Street Wharf at 7.30pm and returns at 1am.

Rocket Cruise

Looking for a more affordable cruise option but want to stay on the boat for more than a couple of hours? Well then, Rocket Cruise has your NYE sorted. 5.5 hours of relaxed cruising, indoor and outdoor ferry seating, BYO drinks and picnic, and positioned in a viewing area outside of the exclusion zone for the fireworks display. All for $499 per person, departing from King Street Wharf at 7.30 pm and returning at 1 am.  

Aussie Magic New Year’s Eve Cruise

Step into the new year in style on board Aussie Magic, a stylish 26-metre catamaran with a super spacious outdoor entertaining deck. Catch jaw-dropping views of the midnight fireworks after enjoying a night of cocktail style dining—canapes, buffet, free-flowing drinks, which are all included in the $650 per person price. But for 5.5 hours of cruising around the harbour with your nearest and dearest, it’s a big treat yourself kind of night every Sydneysider should experience at least once. Aussie Magic departs from Star City Casino Wharf at 7.30pm and returns around 1am.  

My Way New Year’s Eve Cruise

Leave 2021 behind your way. The newly refurbished My Way vessel is ready for NYE, and so are we. Revel under the sparkling city lights as the sun goes down and enjoy a picturesque vista of the midnight fireworks from inside the exclusion zone, all the while enjoying the all-inclusive perks of a good NYE cruise: chef’s selection of canapes, buffet menu, music, and more. The two dining rooms are fully air-conditioned too, so the humidity won’t be a problem at all. There’s limited seating aboard My Way – with only 100 seats – so you’ll want to get in quick to secure a spot on a less-crowded cruise.

Tall Ship Dinner Cruise

Most NYE cruises around Sydney are on modernised boats. But why not take a step on the traditional sailing boat side this New Year’s? Choose between three tall ships for an unforgettable dinner cruise on the harbour, all offering front-row views of the fireworks. Dine on fresh seafood, gourmet barbecue, and more, accompanied by bottomless wine, beer, soft drinks, and live music during the 5.5-hour cruise. Prices start at $550 per person, which is a great deal for an all-inclusive NYE cruise.

Vagabond Spirit NYE

Jump aboard one of the newer vessels in Sydney Harbour to celebrate the new year in all-inclusive style. The MV Vagabond Spirit will surely get you into the party mood, with party streamers and party hats handed out and an all-night DJ and light show across two levels. In the food department, dig into a gorgeous menu, which includes tempting appetisers, a seafood buffet and carvery, and decadent desserts freshly cooked on board. There’ll also be an open bar, with premium brand drinks, including spirits. The large observation deck offers 360-degree views of Sydney Harbour, so it’s a perfect spot to watch the fireworks. At $725 per person for six hours of cruising fun, Vagabond Spirit NYE is the ultimate way to ring in the new year.  

Glass Island

Add a sprinkle of glamour to your New Year’s Eve with a night on the glorious Glass Island cruise. Prices start at $565.95 and include a 3-hour beverage package of beer, wine, cider, sparkling and soft drinks, canapes, gourmet food stations, and a glass of Moet Chandon at midnight while watching the spectacular fireworks display. Glass Island will take you one of the best spots in the harbour too, departing from King Street Wharf at 8.50pm sharp and returning at 12.30am.  

Waratah New Year’s Eve Cruise

Fancy to spend your NYE on the beautiful heritage boat, Waratah? This 1902 steam tug will not only have you feeling like you’ve just stepped back in time and offers epic viewing of both the 9pm and midnight firework displays. It’s BYO dinner, snacks, and beverages on Waratah, so at least you’ll be able to bring your favourites goodies on board. Waratah will depart from Pyrmont at 7pm and return around 1am.  

Magistic Cruises 

This whopping 7.25-hour cruise includes everything you could possibly need to tick off your NYE cruise bucket list—gourmet seafood buffet (including fresh king prawns), premium beer, wine, and spirits, DJ and dancing on board, fireworks views from inside the exclusion zone. You can’t go wrong. You can check also out the delicious food menu on the Magistic Cruises website .   

Starship Aqua

Celebrate the New Year’s Eve festivities on the two-level glass boat, Starship Aqua, which boasts pristine views at each glance. This 6-hour cruise has all-inclusive canapes and food stalls, Australian beers and premium wines, non-allocated seating, and of course a DJ throwing down non-stop tunes to get you moving throughout the night. Prices start at $650 per person and the cruise will depart from King Street Wharf at 7.30 pm and returns at 1am.

WGS 84 coordinate reference system is the latest revision of the World Geodetic System, which is used in mapping and navigation, including GPS satellite navigation system (the Global Positioning System).

Geographic coordinates (latitude and longitude) define a position on the Earth’s surface. Coordinates are angular units. The canonical form of latitude and longitude representation uses degrees (°), minutes (′), and seconds (″). GPS systems widely use coordinates in degrees and decimal minutes, or in decimal degrees.

Latitude varies from −90° to 90°. The latitude of the Equator is 0°; the latitude of the South Pole is −90°; the latitude of the North Pole is 90°. Positive latitude values correspond to the geographic locations north of the Equator (abbrev. N). Negative latitude values correspond to the geographic locations south of the Equator (abbrev. S).

Longitude is counted from the prime meridian ( IERS Reference Meridian for WGS 84) and varies from −180° to 180°. Positive longitude values correspond to the geographic locations east of the prime meridian (abbrev. E). Negative longitude values correspond to the geographic locations west of the prime meridian (abbrev. W).

UTM or Universal Transverse Mercator coordinate system divides the Earth’s surface into 60 longitudinal zones. The coordinates of a location within each zone are defined as a planar coordinate pair related to the intersection of the equator and the zone’s central meridian, and measured in meters.

Elevation above sea level is a measure of a geographic location’s height. We are using the global digital elevation model GTOPO30 .
