My beautiful wife and I hopped on the ferry to manly which was enjoyable enough only to be outdone by a magnificent seafood lunch. Loved the atmosphere and harbour views. Simply great value with ample comfortable seating. No dissapointments here.

Fast, convenient, easy to navigate. Was shocked at how efficient the ferry system is here. I felt like I was hoping on the subway, but easier and more scenic. Highly recommend.

We went on the new Manly ferry and it only takes about 20 minutes to travel from Circular Quay to Manly and good value.

We used the ferries to travel to both Watson’s Bay and to Manly from Circular Quay. The tickets are purchased from the automatic machines and the ferries app leave on schedule. Very easy and efficient, albeit a little pricey.

Loved using the ferries for public transit. Just tap your Apple Pay and get right on and get wherever you need to.

Nothing nicer than hopping on a ferry on a sunny day for fish & chips at Watson's Bay or lunch at Manly or Cockatoo Island. Great relaxing way to see the beautiful harbour.

Bought a single trip ticket from the blue machine in Circular Quay. $7.40 for the trip to Pyrmont Bay on a Sunday evening but worth it for the site seeing alone. Left from wharf 4 and sat outside for the full experience. Crew were friendly...More
