Very entertaining ferry trip with Capt Rory and his didgeridoo playing and commentary. The Optus Stadium tour was something to remember with our guide Lyn. Would do it all again. Great value package deal.

Thank Ben F

And we agree Ben F, it is indeed a great value package deal - the cruise - guided tour of Optus Stadium. Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback and I'm glad you enjoyed your time on our little ferry.

Used this service to get to Optus Stadium from Elizabeth Quay. Lovely little boat. Electric powered so no noise or wake. Very friendly, jovial and knowledgeable skipper. There were a few children on our trip who had a great time! Highly recommend!
