The ferry operation out of Sydney Harbour are easy and a great way to travel. Signs are easy to read and the ticket agents are right there to direct you if need be.

We travelled on the Captain Cook ferry from the Sea Life centre back to the Wharf very reasonable. We took another from the Wharf to Manley also reasonable. These ferries run regularly and are such a good way to travel.

A quick and not too expensive way to get from Circular Quay to Manly and/or back. Only this (except perhaps a helicopter view) makes you realize and understand the varied coastline of the Sydney Harbour, with all the bays and capes. Make sure you choose a nice day and also think about where the sun will be if you're after some nice photos. Also, the ferry can be quite packed with people and not everyone gets the best view...

Wow. Sydney ferries operate an amazing service. Ferries are frequent, on time and really easy to use. All ferry staff - from kiosk to on ramp staff - were very pleasant. They will even put the ramp back on for you to get on if you are a tiny bit late! We used Sydney ferries a lot as part of our Multi Pass 3 weekly ticket - used the ferry to Darling Harbour, Circular Quay, Milsons Point, The Zoo, Manly, Watsons Bay, Sydney Olympic Park. A really nice, very economical way of getting around. Wharf electronic display boards easy to use, website easy to use to find out times and routes. An international first class service.

What better way to see Sydney harbour than to do it by ferry. Tickets were quick and easy to get, not too much of a wait but do be quick if you want a nice seat up top on a sunny day. Seats go quickly.
