This is a great way to see the harbour at a good price, and then have a good day out in Manly, the ferry is big enough to walk around for photos

School holiday treat with the kids going from Circular Quay to Manly. The crossing between the heads can get a bit rough. There was a little bit of swell. Fortunately no one was sick. (In my party at least)

I would highly recommend this ferry ride to any visitor - even if you don't want to see Manly (which is actually really lovely), just the return ferry ride is worth doing. The views of harbour bridge, the opera house and the wider harbour are...More
