Wit the geography of Sydney, Ferries are ding humane task of transport - easy, cheap and accessible. The way timely turnarounds are made by the ferry people, simply great. Office goers or tourists like me, rest assure you will be on time

The Sydney Ferries is a great way to travel inside Sydney and connects the land very well in its bay. The view is amazing at night.

Well organized, it would be worhwhile taking one or more rides in the ferry and see how locals use ferry regularly for commuting. You will see a lot many houses, bungalows etc, small parks around the coast as your ferry glides by. I thoroughly enjoyed the ride. Well managed, with capable operators.

We travelled on Sydney's ferry service on a Sunday and it truly is hard to believe the Sunday $2.50 cap can include an efficient and trustworthy system like this ferry service. Comfortable and affordable, and manages the high foot traffic with ease

Although I was in Sydney for a short time I became a fan of the ferries. Its just feels wonderful to sit on top of one and feel the wind and the surf. One of the days the sea did become a bit choppy and was spraying surf so people had to sit inside. But overall a very easy way... More

The Manly ferry is such a great experience. The trip from Circular Quay is 30 minutes of pure joy. Traveling past the Sydney Opera House and seeing the sky of... More
