Join us on a traditional vessel for your Convicts, Castle and Champagne tour.

For the Convict part of your tour, you'll step ashore at Goat Island for a personal guided tour of a harbour island that contains some of Australia's most important and intact convict-built buildings.

Hear ghastly and gruesome tales of punishment, deaths and escapes, all with a backdrop of the best views of Sydney Harbour.

During the Castles phase, you cruise past some of Australia's wealthiest and most prestigious suburbs and take in the harbourside castles. There are the luxury residences of movie stars, the most expensive property in the country, and lots of history to cover the history of beautiful Kirribilli and Admiralty House.

During your tour, enjoy a bubbly whilst cruising Sydney Harbour. 

Towards the end of the cruise, we sail under the Harbour Bridge and back into Campbell's Cove.

Tours are conducted in all weather. If it looks like rain, please bring wet weather gear. Alternate indoor arrangements for lunch will be made on the island.

Your tour runs for 3 hours.

Available throughout the year.

Valid for 1 person. Maximum group size is 35.

The guided tour is approximately 1.5 Km in length and includes some inclines.

Suitable for all ages, 5 and upwards. You need to have a reasonable level of fitness and be able to lift your legs at a 90 degree angle. You will be asked to complete a health questionnaire.

Thrill Experiences was easy to use and responsive via email. We booked the Convicts & Castle tour and it was a wonderful experience with Sydney Tall Ships with a very knowledgeable guide and lovely crew and a splendid day exploring Goat Harbour and a couple of hours on the harbour. Definitely recommend
