Fast boat, comfortable seating, tables, options to sit inside and outside, places to store your bike, oh, and there's a bar...!!!! Just remember it doesn't take Opal card so the trip will cost $7.50 each way.

Travelled many times over a week. We found the service and the staff so helpful and courteous. It's so much faster using this service from Manly to Circular Quay. We also used this service to travel to the Taronga Zoo.

The Fast Ferry is more costly (because it is privately owned and, well, faster) than the public ferry, so perhaps you were looking at the price of the public ferry.
