Ships rides are another popular, typically Australian pastime. There are always many small ships ready for a voyage near Circular Quay. Tourist cutters and motor boats offer excursions to different directions, so travelers can pick short excursions along the coast or longer tours, during which they will reach picturesque Watson Bay.

Models of ancient ships, old maps and ship equipment are some of the artifacts exhibited in the museum. There are also more unusual items, for example, real sail vessel and submarine. This is one of a few museums in the world where visitors can get into a submarine and explore it.
