“Great way to commute”
Reviewed January 27, 2012

We stayed in Manly for 3 weeks and took the ferry to Circular Quay several times. Definitely beats fighting traffic and the views are stunning - the best pictures you'll get of the Harbour Bridge and Opera House for sure. Ride takes about 30 minutes (there's a different, faster ferry during commuting times). Alcohol is not allowed on the boat (faster ferry serves it on board). Tons of fun for our toddler, who loved sitting on the upper deck and pointing out all the other boats. Highly recommended!

“Perfect little jaunt to get out in the harbor”
Reviewed January 27, 2012

This 30 minute, one-way trip to Manly is a great way to both get to a really fun beach area and boat down most of the harbor. Lots of good photo ops along the way

“Comfortable but busy!”
Reviewed January 26, 2012

This was a nice ferry with comfortable seating but it can get very crowded. Particularly outside. It is a punctual service and is a great way to see a different part of Sydney!
