One of the most famous ferry services here in Sydney is the Manly Ferry, which is the topic of our Ferry Friday.
The first services between Circular Quay and Manly began in the 1850s. These services were operated by The Port Jackson and Manly Steamship Company. Today the services are operated by Harbour City Ferries on behalf of Sydney Ferries as the F1 Manly service.
Four Freshwater class ferries bulit in the 1980s operate the service. They are named Freshwater, Queenscliff, Narrabeen and Collaroy. Each ferry can carry up to 1 100 passengers at a time.
The service takes 30 minutes between Circular Quay Wharf 3 and Manly Wharf 1 and operates between 6am and Midnight daily with a frequency varying between 20 and 30 minutes depending on demand.
