Sydney Cruise Details

The VIVID Sydney festival will run from 22 May to 13 June 2020 and includes many amazing lighting displays as well as a wide range of creative artistic events throughout the city.

From Chatswood to Kings Cross you can make your way through exciting displays and interactive experiences but nothing to compares to viewing the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge lit up to showcase Sydney Harbour from the comfort of The Cadman’s Dinner Cruise.

Join our premium fully seated VIVID Buffet cruise where you can enjoy a generous Buffet Dinner, full drinks package including Local or Imported Beer, Red & Wine, Sparkling, Soft Drinks, Tea & Coffee and VIVID Light views, a DJ/MC on board to provide commentary and entertain guests.

All cruises pick up and drop off at King St Darling Harbour. Parking is available in a variety of local car parks; we suggest you use Public transport during the busy VIVID Festival.

Perfect for Families, Birthday Celebrations and Corporate Social Clubs. Make sure you let our staff know if you are Celebrating so our MC can make an announcement for the whole boat to give you a cheer !!

Due to congestion and high patronage with other cruise operators also trying to organise for boarding of their vessels in the King Street Wharf Area, all passengers are advised to arrive 30 mins prior to cruise time. Therefore, for a 5.15pm cruise, Guests need to be there at 4.45pm.To try and simplify the process, our vessel “THE CADMAN” will arrive to KING ST. 9 at the stipulated time of boarding. We urge all customers to wait at the top of each wharf (In front of Cargo Bar) where a staff member will check-in each customer and please have your ‘Order Confirmation’ with you (either printed or on your phone). Do not queue in line for boarding unless you have been checked in first.
