“Beach day”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

Took the ferry to Manly. Then went to the beach. Really nice beach, very clean. There was a promenade from the ferry to the beach so no traffic worries. A lot of small shop and food outlets.

“BestValue for Money in Sydney...”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

Costs around $15 return from Circular Quay... no commentary , however Sydney Harbour is so visual you don't need to be told ... it's spectacular all the way there , and back again !

“Great ferry ride”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

We took this ferry out to Manly based on some locals recommendations. It was a beautiful ride among sailboats. The walkway was nice and the surfer beach had more locals. Hit the chocolate stand for gourmet hot chocolate for the ferry ride back if it it's a cooler day.

“Be careful”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

I wanted to spend some time on the island, but was duped into a round trip ferry that didn't stop at the island. Book the fast ferry if you want to spend
D time on the beaches of Manley Island.

“Great ferry ride”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

The Manly ferry offers a great 30 minute ride across Sydney harbour to the popular seaside area of Manly. My ideal way is to take the Manly ferry one way from Circular Quay to Manly and the fast ferry back.
The crossing at Sydney heads can get a little rough for a few minutes during bad weather.
