One of the worlds best commutes ?

This commute would almost make it worth being a wage slave again ! On a sunny Sydney day, this ferry trip is a great day out for visitors

What can you say that has not been said before. Even as a local I love taking the Manly Ferry for the trip. It really is the best if not the cheapest way to see the outer part of the harbour go by. When you get to Manly, there is of course the beach and loads of wonderful cafe's and... More

My daughter and I took this 30 minute ride from Circular Quay to Manly beach and sat outside on the deck since it was a sunny blue sky winter day. It had been about 30 years since I was last at Manly, so it was interesting to see the changes since then. The mall with little restaurants, cafes and shops... More

The ferry to manly is one of the best ways to view Sydney Harbour and great value. I recommend it to all my visiting friends as a shorter and far cheaper option than the standard harbour cruises. Hint: take a late afternoon cruise and enjoy dinner at one of the great beach side restaurants in Manly and do a night... More

Regular service from Circular Quay to Manly Wharf, about 30 minutes. Food and drink on board, plenty of room inboard on on the upper deck.

It is a good way to see the harbours and meet the locals. Many cafes and shops at Manly and do the walk down to the beach.

What a wonderful way to travel across the Sydney Bay and indulging in the fresh breeze rather than being stuck in traffic...

Quick and easy way to get to Manly! I enjoyed the view as it travelled around the harbour. It was a new experince for me. Easy to buy tickets, quick wait times.
