Best New Year’s Eve cruises Sydney Harbour | NYE fireworks 2019/2020

Get the best view of the New Year's Eve fireworks in Sydney by booking a spot on a New Year’s Eve cruise.

Viewing the world-famous light show from the water is the ultimate way to spend New Year's Eve. You don't have to battle the crowds at the free vantage points, or give up the luxury of food and drink (which isn't sold at most of them and BYO is a no-no).

Most cruises tend to last about five to seven hours, serve food and drink, and give revellers the chance to see both the 9pm family fireworks and the main event at the stroke of midnight.

While the 2019/2020 cruises haven't been made available yet, stay tuned to this page. We'll add them here as soon as they go on sale so you can make sure you get your tickets before they sell out.

What's so good about a New Years Eve cruise in Sydney?

  • You avoid the crowds. Cruises will limit the number of tickets sold, so you won't have to battle swarms of people just to get a good view.
  • You’ll have a spot held for you. The best places to watch the fireworks fill up fast, which often means arriving as early as the morning of New Year's Eve. If you buy a cruise ticket in advance, simply stroll up at the designated time and you're off.
  • You’ll get the gold-class treatment. It wouldn’t be New Year’s Eve without a glass of bubbly in your hand, and New Year’s Eve harbour cruises tend to come with a bar and offer some food.
  • Food and drink are usually included: If you go to a free vantage point, you'll most likely need to bring your own food and most don't allow you to buy drinks and BYO isn't allowed.

Other Sydney New Year's Eve cruises

Captain Cook Cruises:

One of the biggest names in the biz, Captain Cook has six boats running throughout the evening to capture the light spectacular at 7:30pm, 9pm, and midnight. They have seafood buffet dinner and cocktail packages available. And if you book early, you’ll save even more.

Bass and Flinders Cruises:

Eight boats dedicated to the 9pm and midnight fireworks, each departing from various locations on the Harbour. Our advice? Choose which view you’d prefer and book into the cruise that suits. Seafood BBQ and cocktail packages available. Though, if those are beyond the budget, there are BYO options, too.

Sydney New Year’s Eve Cruises:

The name says it all. If that wasn’t enough to convince, this company’s Lady Rose ship won the 2014 Harbour of Light Parade ‘Best Designed’ competition. Ring in the New Year on a winnaar.

Fantasea Cruises:

Fantasea’s got both adults and families covered. One of their boats will be dedicated to the 9pm fireworks before returning to get the children home, while three other boats will be on the water all night long to capture both the 9pm and midnight shows. Then, there’ll be a boat just for the midnight fireworks. So many options.
