So we bought a ticket to Taronga Zoo which came with a 24 hour pass to use the ferry system. It was good to just be able to jump on a ferry and see the beautiful site of Sydney. Got to travel under the Harbor Bridge, see the Opera house, Kiribilli House and many other attractions. The skipper was very... More

I've been commuting with MFF for the past year, and while it was a little unreliable to start off with last year, the new vessels have improved the on-time performance and service consistency. The faster boarding and disembarking times make waiting times smaller, and connecting to transport services are much easier MFF should improve the Smartcard system with an online... More

The vessel is very new, clean and conformable, and it was fast. It goes around the opera house so we can view it in a different angle. It is about $1 more than the ordinary ferry, worth the service!

Minimal discomfort for those who get sea sick. Boat was clean and attendant at Circular Quay was extremely helpful planning our day (older gentleman with a lot of class!). Thanks to him, we had one of the most enjoyable days in Sydney!!!

How can I elaborate... It was fast, it was a ferry boat, it was a smooth ride, it had plenty of seats, and it was a great way to get to Manly from Sydney.

I enjoy visiting the city coming from the Northern Beaches. If a visitor wants a cheaper and longer scenic ride, then the public ferry is the way to go. If you do not have budget constraints, and less time available then this is the more sensible choice. It is modern, clean, smooth and obviously faster. I love travelling with the... More

I frequently meet people in Manly for business and occasionally for a social catch-up. Manly fast ferry is a big hit. I have never seen a staff member with anything other than a warm smile and the boats are quick and on-time. Not only that you can have a cool beer on the way back after clinching that deal!

Being a local this is my preferred option to travel between Circular Quay and Manly. They also have a bar on board which makes the trip even more enjoyable. They have a service that goes to Quarantine Station and Watsons Bay and Rose Bay from Manly as well. Buy a Manly Ferry fast pass and it will work out even... More
