We took the 9.30am out of Franklin Wharf and returned on the 3.30pm ferry - very much worth the time and cost. All was organised and welcoming. the commentary was clear and helpful. Thoroughly recommended.

This is a very nice way to get out to the MONA from the city center. It is like having a mini cruise of the harbor.

I loved the whole Mona experience, from the ferry ride to the installations. Some of the art you might question, but go and even if you don't enjoy the installations you will be seeing something quite unique. You will also get a nice trip around...More

This modern ferry is a very comfortable way to get to the MONA. It takes a relaxing 20 minutes from wharf to wharf. Food and beverage available on board. Comfortable way to travel.

Sorry, I only discovered I had messages so you've probably already visited. It's a river trip so not usually rough. I can also get seasick but the ferry is very, very stable. Give it a go.Good luck and enjoy.
