By purchasing an Opal card, you can access very good value rides on the harbour. The ferries are all in good condition and comfortable to ride on.

Caught a ferry from the new Barangaroo jetty into Circular Quay. Great way to see the sights and take in views of the Harbour Bridge, Luna Park and the Opera House.

My beautiful wife and I hopped on the ferry to manly which was enjoyable enough only to be outdone by a magnificent seafood lunch. Loved the atmosphere and harbour views. Simply great value with ample comfortable seating. No dissapointments here.

Fast, convenient, easy to navigate. Was shocked at how efficient the ferry system is here. I felt like I was hoping on the subway, but easier and more scenic. Highly recommend.

We went on the new Manly ferry and it only takes about 20 minutes to travel from Circular Quay to Manly and good value.
