Had a lovely trip around Scotland Island and our captain provided us with some interesting tidbits of information along the way. A really enjoyable short trip to do on a sunny day on the Pittwater.

Caught the ferry for a 40 minute cruise from Church Point, around Scotland Island and return. Very pleasant trip and reasonably priced. As we are seniors the trip was only $7.50 each. Highly recommended.

On a sunny day, this is a lovely little trip to while-away the time. The round trip lasts 35 minutes. You pay on board by cash or credit card. I think it is expensive for what it is; being $15.00 each per person. Rip off...More
