Visit Manly and Shelly Beach...take the ferry. Very nice ride over...there is a fast ferry and a regular ferry. Either one will get you there! Lots and lots to do once you are there...plus the ferry ride is a bit of an adventure as well.

Efficient, enjoyable, comfortable tone round trip from Circular Quay to Manly for $32AUS about double the price of public ferry which takes about 50% longer each way. Alcohol and soft drinks for sale on board.

Fast comfortable trip from circular Quay to Manly, but at $9 one way (and no seniors opal card discount), just a little expensive.

So Awful! But what choice do you have. Very Disappointing, rude staff and zero customer service. Bring back the old fast ferry service. These guys ruin the vibe of manly.

Although a bit pricey (58AUD for return for 2 adults and 2 kids) it is an excellent way to get to Manly in only 25 minutes and with great views of Sydney Harbour, the Bridge and Opera house on the way

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.
