Terrific to be on the water in Sydney harbour and a great way to get toManly. Great feel to Manly, get to go to the beach and great places to eat and then return on the Manly ferry to Sydney CBD. Frequency of service is pretty ood too.

“To Manly on the Ferry”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

As a first timer on a Sydney Ferry we were delighted with the service it was quick and efficient. A fantastic way to see Sydney Harbour, the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House from the water.

Extremely convenient connection from Sydney harbor, great views of the waterfront and of Manley. The ferry is clean and beverages are sold on board.

“A Pleasurable Ride!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

The Manly Ferry has been given lots of names, especially in bad weather, but as a tourist visiting Sydney it gives you the perfect way to see the Harbour and get to Manly on the cheaper side, rather than a lengthy bus ride or insane taxi fare.

“Great way to see the harbour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012

We took our 3 year old on a round trip from Manly across to the city and back. It's a great way to see the harbour, easy to get on and off and just the right length trip to hold the attention of a little one. It's a great way to get across town too, in order to take in the various attractions at Manly Beach.
