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.

This is the perfect and cheap way to experience great views of the Sydney Harbor, the bridge and the opera house. Also, it is a short enough ferry ride to Manly where you can go to the beach or eat at one of the restaurants lining the ferry terminal.

It's not a trip to Sydney without getting out on the harbour and what better way to appreciate it's beauty than from the Manly Ferry. Travelling all the way from Circular Quay to Manly and the Heads, then walking across to the ocean. I love just sitting at the beach with a coffee/fish&chips/whatever and enjoying the sea and a little... More

A ferry ride from Manly takes in so many of the sights of Sydney. Apart from the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House there is an excellent view of Garden Island and all the naval boats. Fort Denison, the Tower, Luna Park, Kirribilli House just to name a few. Having taken all your snaps in daylight, take an after dark... More
