Morpheus is 66ft Catamaran that can carry up to 100 guests and has been designed specifically to provide harbour cruises in and around Sydney - making her the perfect boat for your next Australia Day Cruise.
On 26 January each year, Australians come together to celebrate their national day, and in Sydney the world's most beautiful harbour really turns it on for Australia Day. Celebrate this in true style and immerse yourself in the experience by booking an Australia Day Cruise aboard Morpheus, the catamaran that ensures everyone has a truly memorable and intimate experience with Sydney.
Some of the many incredible activities and events that are planned around Sydney on Australia Day include the Tall ships regatta, the famous ferry race and of course the amazing aerobatics of the Red berets and Russian Roolettes. And to top it off the entire day is filled with the sounds of the Cruising Concert, a show you will have front row seat to when you book your Australia Day Cruise.
Morpheus is laid out over two levels that provide an abundance of natural light and further enhance the experience of being out on Sydney Harbour amongst all the action of Australia Day.
There is room for 60 to be seated if a more formal dining experience if preferred, or alternatively - and in instances where the party numbers higher than - we recommend a sumptuous buffet style meal where guests are free to mingle and enjoy their Australia Day cruise on their own terms. Morpheus provides full catering and has a range of menu and drink options for you to choose from. BYO is not an option on Australia Day Cruises. There is also a bar and lounge area that is perfect for relaxing and just savoring the moment - as well as your drink of course.
What really makes Morpheus the perfect boat for your next Australia Day Cruise is the space and views she affords her guests on her front deck. With space for all 100 of your party to enjoy the show, this area is totally open to the elements and provides one of the most amazing and intimate Australia Day Cruise experiences - getting you up close and personal with the events of the day.
There is also another outdoor area located upstairs. This area is shaded with a roof and provides a welcome place to sit and enjoy the activities and watch the events of our National day unfold. Morpheus has a number of additional features so that your Australia Day cruise is one you remember fondly. These include Power and iPod/USB/Aux connections as well as a great quality sound system so you only need your smart-phone and some Tunes should you want the day to have its own soundtrack.
If you are looking for the perfect boat to keep you and your party entertained on Australia Day then Morpheus is the catamaran for you. With her large [and versatile] entertaining areas, unrestricted 360 degree views of the surround harbour and her exceptional value for money, Morpheus is one of the best choices for Australia Day Cruises in Sydney.
