“Brilliant for the price!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

If you want a Harbour Cruise and don't want lunch, you could do a whole lot worse than just catching the Ferry to Manly. It's cheap, frequent and quite fast and you can get a fair sun tan on the way over to what I consider the best beach in Sydney...

“Not a trip to Sydney without it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

I usually stay in Many when visiting Sydney, and why not when it is so easy to travel the habour in such a wonderful way. You just have to make sure you sit outside and sit on opposite sides each way. Yes it's chilly at this time of the year, but what the hell!!

“What Organisation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

It shifts thousands every day.
The Organisation runs like clockwork, it must do because of the hundreds loading and off-loading. Its comfortable, fast and a great experience. Do it

“Ferry across the waters.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

Crossing to Manly in the daytime is nice enough but the thrill is taking the late night ferry back from Manly. Get on deck and soak in the fresh air and the lights of Sydney harbour, Sydney bridge and Opera House.

“Whoops!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

The Manly ferry takes you almost out to the headland and so hits choppy water. If you get seasick be mindful of this.

It's a stunning trip, where you get to see the Opera House and bridge in all their glory and of course you get to see the most beautiful Manly beach when you get there. Definitely a ferry ride worth doing.
