“fun way to see Sydney Harbour”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

Board early for a seat at the front of the ferry and rug up. You'll join all the international tourists, many of whom will be defeated by the cold or the spray when that happens. Hardier souls are in the box seat for magnificent views. If you go to Manly during the day and return at night, the city looks magnificent as you return to Circular Quay.
Manly itself has that real holiday feel with surf clubs to change in if you go for a swim and lots of choice in restaurants and cafes or fish and chips by the beach on a park bench. We try to go over every time we're in Sydney

“Worth the trip”
Reviewed October 8, 2013 via mobile

Reasonably priced trip with lovely views of the bridge and opera house. Manly is worth a visit and a good starring point for further trips eg. Palm beach etc.

“Really great trip, a must for any visitor”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

We quite often take the train to Sydney, and hop over to Manly for lunch. The ferry trip takes 30 mins, and leaves at regular times from Circular Quay and Manly, so it is reliable. Great view of the CBD, Opera house and bridge on the return trip to Circular Quay. The ferry seats are comfortable, and the view is really good of the harbour.

“Manly Ferry”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

This was a quick and great way to see the Sydney Shoreline and puts you where you want to be in Manly. I found the crew informative and concerned.
