Timing for catching a Harbor Cruise

Recommended Posts

We are arriving at the Sydney airport at 8:00am on December 25 (flying from LA). We would like to take a harbor cruise that afternoon (3:00pm) and wondering if we will be able to make it. We will have a private driver from the airport to our hotel in Circular Quay. Our other option is an evening cruise, but afraid we’ll be asleep by the time it sails. Thanks for any advice.

You will make it easily

With customs and immigration clearances and waiting for luggage I'd say you will be at your hotel by 9.30am at the latest

Don't expect too much to be open on Christmas Day though

Good idea to do something during the day to keep you active so you go to bed on the local time zone hours

Seems like a ton of time, where does the cruise depart from and where are you staying

Plenty of time to get to Circular quay or even Kings Wharf by 3pm for Sydney harbour cruises on xmas day.

Getting there for 12pm (lunch cruise) may be pushing it a bit depending on where your hotel is. 


There are some dinner cruises on offer may suit you also.
