Experience the Vivid Sydney Festival from on board a private catamaran on Sydney Harbour, in the company of your family, friends and colleagues. An intimate catamaran cruising experience with vessels available to accommodate for various group sizes and different budgets. All our vessels are of high quality and safety, and provide uninterrupted views of one of the world’s most beautiful harbours.

Select your preferred vessel - Enigma X, Kirralee or Fleetwing II - and enjoy the amazing Vivid lights from on board a private catamaran, with the option to BYO beverages. Each vessel contains the luxury of a spacious internal cabin to stay protected from the Winter chills, along with a large bow area, and some vessel styles also feature a covered aft deck and flybridge / upper deck area. 

Enjoy plenty of photo opportunities amongst the views of the Sydney Opera House, Harbour Bridge, Luna Park and other lit up locations, as a small vessel allows you to get up close to the shoreline for the best views of the Vivid lights.

A private Vivid Sydney cruise is perfect for small to medium groups of family, friends and colleagues. Skip the crowds, see the lights, enjoy the water. Experience Vivid Sydney from a small boat!

Alternatively, for individuals, couples or smaller groups who wish to enjoy the Vivid Sydney from the water, opt to join us on our scheduled ticketed Vivid Sydney cruises.
