Vivid Cruises 2020

Are you going to Vivid this year? Arguably the Sydney festival of the year, Vivid is an explosion of lights, music and culture that transforms the city into a vibrant, exciting showcase for the arts, and Vivid Cruises allow a unique perspective free from the crowds.

The 2020 Vivid promises to be as big as those of previous years, attracting displays and performances from nationally and internationally acclaimed artists.

Although some of these events are based inland, a significant number are based in and around the harbour, which is why Vivid cruises have become a popular option for festival-goers who want to enjoy the spectacle from the comfort and luxury of a harbour cruise boat.

Host a corporate or private Vivid Sydney cruise

A Vivid harbour cruise on one of our boats will give your party the opportunity to see some of Vivid’s most spectacular offerings from the harbour. Some of the harbour-side attractions this year include Ballerina; Under the Harbour; Club Kooky by the Harbour; and events at the Opera House.

Often it’s impossible to get a really great view of these attractions unless you’re at the centre of the action, which is exactly where a cruise on one of our boats will take you. Enjoy some of the best acts and displays Vivid has to offer at the same time as enjoying a harbour cruise.

When you book with us, you’ll benefit from a cruise in luxury surroundings, piloted and crewed by our experienced captain and crew. We provide a full range of drinks and refreshments, served to your timetable.

If you wish for additional entertainment or other extras, get in touch and we’ll be happy to design a customised package based around your requirements. Ideal as an after-work outing, celebration, corporate occasion or similar, a Vivid boat cruise brings people together, celebrating the arts in Sydney.
