“Good way to see the harbour”
Reviewed 9 April 2012

Well worth getting the ferry across to Manly as the trip is one of the best ways to see the harbour/bay. Then spend the day at Manly, perhaps hire a bike or walk to Shelly bay

“Cheap Harbour cruise”
Reviewed 8 April 2012

We did a trip to Manly just for the boat ride, if you get a train/bus/ferry pass you can go on them all unlimited times. Ferry was clean and runs regularly, good trip.

“Fun scenic boat ride”
Reviewed 8 April 2012

It is a cheap way to see the harbour and get to Manly Beach....go for a beach day or just to see a different side of Sydney.

“It's a ferry.”
Reviewed 8 April 2012

It was pretty cheap and got me to Manly without sinking. Can hardly fault it based on that!

“Sydney's best value”
Reviewed 8 April 2012

Simple and inexpensive way to see Sydney's great attraction -- the brilliant Harbour. No frill, but with these views, who needs them?
