Vivid Cruises Sydney Detail
Forget struggling with the hordes and public transport to catch a glimpse of the Vivid Sydney Festival. A super sophisticated way to see the Vivid Lights of Sydney is to be picked up from a harbour wharf away from the crowds and then get taken into the heart of the action near the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney Opera House, Circular Quay, The Rocks, The Sydney Botanical Gardens, Darling Harbour, Barangaroo and Luna Park. To walk to see all of this in the crowds would be near impossible.
Vivid Harbour Lights Boats
Famous for its spectacular water display, Vivid Sydney's Harbour Lights display continues not to be missed in 2019.
The hero of Sydney Harbour is Vivid Sydney 'Harbour Lights'. The Harbour Lights is a synchronized lighting display using a satellite navigational grid. As boats move throughout the grid, they will change colour so the harbour becomes a display of boats changing colour in synchronicity. To be on a boat that is actually moving through the light zones is an unforgettable experience. The lights dance and play, sometimes quickly and sometimes in a soft flow.
If you want to be on a boat that is part of the Harbour Lights dancing light display, ask us for Starship Sydney, Platinum, Galaxy Calypso or Coast.

There is a host of live music and interesting lectures around Sydney to see and hear and marvel at.
Can I see Vivid Sydney Light on a tour?
Our large range of vessels can cater to large corporate groups,smaller family gatherings and singles so there are tours for everyone.Usually our vessels will pick up from King Street Wharf Darling Harbour where you are welcomed onboard with nice champagne or cold beverage where the vessel will do a safety briefing prior to departing the wharf.
Where do the Vivid boats tour?
All vessels will then gently cruise under the Harbour Bridge past Circular Quay to Mrs Macquaries Chair in Farm Cove taking in all the magnificent displays along the way.
The vessels then go past Fort Denison and head to the other side of the harbour where a great view can be had of the city skyline and eastern side of the bridge which dazzles in a flood of light before doing the circuit again where you can pick up an array of changing displays.
What is the difference between experienceing Vivid Sydney from a boat as opposed to land tours?
Experiencing Vivid by boat allows you to cruise past all the visual spectacles in style and without the crowds on the shoreline to enjoy the brilliance of the displays on the Sydney Opera House Sails,Customs House in the Rocks and the enormous light display atop the National Maritime Museum.
Many have experienced Vivid from both land and water and the feedback from a cruise on the water is that the view is much more spectacular and impressive by boat and you are able to sit back relax and enjoy the visuals without all the crowds that make Vivid by foot that much more difficult./p>
