Have used the ferries on all my trips to Sydney. It is a relaxing way to see the harbour in off peak times. Went to Watson’s bay and then returned to Barangaroo. It is a cheap way to have a Harbour cruise!

A fantastic way to see Sydney Harbour. You can travel from one end of the harbour to the other in very comfortable conditions and stop off at any location you like all at a very reasonable price. The best way to see the harbor.

Great way to first experience the city. Bring a jacket for cool winds. Ice cream is at the landing adding to the fun.

Great way to see the Sydney Harbour - $9 pay no more. No need to book an expensive tourist ferry. Go to Manley and take a walk.
