Took the ferry to Manly to go drinking. Wow, what a great way to see the city's skyline, bridge, opera house, and harbor. Go in the afternoon, eat and drink in Manly, then return at night so you get to see the city in two different lighting perspectives.

Taking the Manly ferry is a great way to get on the water to see the harbour. We found the ferry to be on time in both directions.

I travel out of peak times so I can get an outside seat if it is not too cold. There is nothing that I dislike, the trip on the harbour is very pretty and relaxing, plenty to see. Crossing between the heads may be a little rough at times but that just adds a little excitement to the journey.

The best way to travel across to Manly from Sydney City Centre, with some fantastic views of the Harbour bridge and the Opera House

We took the ferry to manly and it was sure a fun and scenic ride for our family. Taking a slow ferry definitely worth the price since you get to enjoy the view along the way.

Very handy service that allows quick travel to Manly from circular quay. From memory it is reasonably priced, and great to use for a day out at the beach.
