See Sydney Harbour from the water at first light.

Your sunrise experience will start from the RPBS wharf at the cusp of dawn, first paddling east as the morning’s first rays of light emerge and Sydney Harbour becomes a marvel of changing colours with the reflecting light off the cityscape.

After a short paddle we’ll arrive at Clark Island where you and your group can enjoy an unforgettable moment as the sun appears over the horizon, casting its rays on the famous Opera House and Harbour Bridge.

As the sun continues to rise in the sky, we’ll meander back towards the Bridge and past beautiful Elizabeth Bay so you can enjoy an ever evolving feast for the eyes as the nuances of the foreshores are lit up around us.

The next point of interest is the Garden Island Naval base and then onto the picturesque Mrs Macquarie’s chair. From there we’ll cruise into Farm Cove to see the Sydney Botanic Gardens in full early morning bloom. 

After a bit of a breather and some history of the area, we’ll head east once again, to Garden Island for a once in a lifetime photo opportunity, capturing the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge behind you as the morning sun dances off the water around you.

Then it is back to the Marina past Fort Denison and in for a coffee and a chance to marvel over this extraordinary experience!
