Captain Cook Cruises has been crisscrossing Sydney Harbour for the past 50 years and in that time have welcomed aboard some extremely esteemed guests including the Pope, presidents and vice-chancellors, members of Royal families and the Dream Team as well.
More importantly, though, Captain Cook Cruises has hosted thousands of Sydneysiders onboard their fleet of restaurant, sightseeing, ferry and sailing vessels. And they’re not stopping anytime soon.
How do you fancy free-flowing G.H. Mumm Champagne, a three-tiered seafood platter loaded with Queensland prawns and freshly-shucked Sydney Rock Oysters as well as panoramic views of the world’s most beautiful harbour?
However, on this 90-minute cruise, that’s not all you’re getting. The three-tiered seafood platter also comes with smoked salmon blinis and golden-fried calamari rings served with a smoked lime mayo sauce. But if that and the Champagne isn’t enough, you can also order from the comprehensive cocktail and wine list without even leaving your seat.
So, if you’re all about class and sophistication, then it’s time you book yourself into this treat of an afternoon or evening and share it with a special someone—a friend, a partner, or anyone else you love to spend time with.
Once aboard, you will witness the changing hues as you tuck into an Australian-inspired set menu of three courses including meat, seafood and vegetarian options (a gluten-free and children’s menu are also available.)
Order drinks from the bar, sit back as the live music plays and take in nature’s masterpiece.
Again, use your NSW Discover voucher to save $25 off of the total price, which like the Whale Watching Adventure Cruise has already been discounted.
Guests on this sensational cruise experience will begin their gastronomic journey with the chef’s selection of petit canapés and either a glass of prosecco or a glass of sparkling depending on their ticket choice—Platinum or Gold. The second course sees seared scallops with lime foam accompanied by either Penfolds Bin 51 Eden Valley Riesling or Penfolds Koonunga Hill Autumn Riesling.
The evening continues with a fragrant herb salad paired with chardonnay, a pasta with rocket pesto matched with a shiraz, an Angus centre cut eye fillet served with sautéed mushrooms and rich jus again paired with shiraz before the evening is rounded out with a black violet cheesecake married with a Tawny Port.
With breathtaking views of Sydney Harbour by night, guaranteed window seating on the premium upper deck as well as live music, this is one gastronomic journey you do not want to miss out on.
Come aboard this Captain Cook Cruise and sip on a flute of Brown Brothers sparkling wine before sitting down to a selection of fine teas including Blue Mountains, Darjeeling, Orange Pekoe and China Jasmine while polishing off a platter of sweet and savoury treats. Among the selection, there will be Crystal Bay prawns on dill blini served with Crème Fraiche; porcini mushroom, chilli jam and pork sausage rolls; glazed mango and coconut custard tartlets; and an assortment of petit fours, truffles and finger sandwiches.
Both children and adults are able to enjoy this sophisticated, weekend affair out on the water.
