Plenty of them to take you all round the Harbour, and good value for money too. You don't have to wait too long and there's lots of room

I love the Sydney ferries, especially the ones that go to Manly and Watsons Bay. Unfortunately you always have to go back to Circular Quay before taking a ferry to another destination

A great way to get around and check out what Sydney Harbour has to offer at a reasonable cost. Also very relaxing on a lovely sunny day.

Sydney ferries offer the best and cheapest travel bargain in town, by a day pass and go from Parramatta to Watsons Bay and more.

Taking a trip on Sydney Ferries on a sunny day is a great way to see the extensive harbour. Especially Saturday afternoons when multiple sailing craft are racing.

Took the ferry to Manly and back again. Stop off at Manly for an ice crea, ocean swim, stroll along the mall or walk out to the quarantine station. Much cheaper than a cruise and you can tailer the activities at Manly to suit your interest and time.
